Which Lighting System is Best for my Texas Home?
Lutron has a Number of Options for Your Lighting Installation
Whether you are building a new home or remodeling, lighting is an essential part of the home makeover equation. While you may tend to be more focused on audio video if you love entertainment, it’s important to look at all your options when it comes to installing smart home automation—especially lighting controls. You want the system to be easy to use, intuitive, and have lots of benefits. Here are a few options from Lutron, the biggest lighting manufacturer in the country—and the oldest. They pioneered lighting controls decades ago and are still bringing technology and innovation to homes and businesses around the world.
With Caseta Wireless, we don’t have to install new wiring in your home. It’s the quickest solution to lighting control for a new or existing home. It works with energy-efficient, dimmable light bulbs and can control both in-wall and in-ceiling lights. The plug-in lamp dimmer controls table and floor lamps so you have access to every type of light in the house. With the Pico Remote Control, or Lutron App, you can turn all the lights off from your bed at night, adjust the lights and shades at any time during the day while you’re at work, and then from your car while you’re traveling or on the way home. One of the more recent innovations is that Caseta Wireless works with Apple HomeKit so you can control the lights through voice command via Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. The Lutron App can also be downloaded from Google Play of you have Android devices. To take this system a step further, integrate Lutron shades and their wireless thermostat for complete climate control and more energy savings.
Lighting is best when it is customized to your lifestyle. Touchpads can reflect the exact actions you want to do in each room. For example, in the home theater, the buttons can say “Movie” “All on”, “All Off”, or “Sports”. Touch “Movie” and the lights will dim down low so you won’t have glare on the screen. Hit “Sports” for a slightly brighter viewing setting so you can entertain friends and enjoy snacks in a well-lit environment.
If you want to keep it clean and simple, the Grafik T dimmer allows you to swipe your finger along an LED strip to lighten and lower the brightness of the room. Hit the strip and all the lights turn on or off.
You can also take your Lutron lighting system a step further and install occupancy/vacancy sensors which automatically sense a person’s presence and turn the lights on. As soon as you leave, the system turns them off so you don’t waste money and energy.
