What is a Lutron Lighting Control System?
Lighting assists with setting the mood and tone for a home. Lutron is the leader in smart lighting control. The capabilities of this lighting system provide much more than turning lights on and off or changing the colors. Lutron allows integrators to develop custom lighting scenes, we preset the lighting fixtures to adjust on command of one press of a button. Revealing the precise mood and tone for your evening.
Sounds easy enough, the question many ask is when would you use them? Within this blog, we will dive into how easy it is to adjust scenes. Explain the value of having them in an estate and share some helpful scene ideas.
HOW CAN YOU CONTROL THEM?
There are many ways to control your scenes. Many people choose to use their smartphones, as their main controller they always have their devices within arm’s reach thanks to the Lutron mobile app. We highly recommend having at least one tablet device in the main relaxation area of the home and always having one at the entryway. There are many options for scattering devices around the home, such as wireless remotes, wall control panels, and other unique designs. Do you enjoy being hands-free? That’s easy for us to make happen! We can use voice control by saying “Good Morning” with platforms like Josh Ai and Alexa to preset commands to have your home turn hands-free.
WHAT ARE SCENES?
Scenes are programmed settings that save multiple lights and shades based on your preferences, easily recalled with the push of one button. For instance, a specific scene could set your recessed ceiling lights to 40 percent brightness to create a warm tone while the stairway lights are set to 20 percent. Perhaps in the same scene, you’ll lower the shades, too. So, when you activate that scene, all lighting and shading changes occur automatically. We engrave names to your preset scenes after you've lived in your home for a few weeks to determine your preferences.
CAN I ADJUST THE SCENES?
If you have a Lutron system, open the Lutron app on your smartphone. From there, select the “Scenes” tab then press “Add a Scene.” You’ll write a name, pick an icon, and then choose the devices in each room you’d like to include. Next, slide and adjust custom brightness levels for each light.
WHY SHOULD A HOMEOWNER CONSIDER LUTRON LIGHTING?
Having a control system allows you to reduce your time spent on mundane tasks. The main perk is having lights turn on automatically when you’re out of town. A lot of larger estates use them as additional security reasons to allow the house to appear occupied more frequently. The best part is you don't have to be home to control your lights so you can remotely tap in at your conveince to turn them on and off or preset a routine.
