control is the fastest growing of all installed home technologies;
even more than
home theater, home automation and multi-room audio. Homeowners
are staring to realize the great benefits of lighting control
in convenience, security and energy savings.
Many homeowners are also upgrading their current homes. Many homeowners
ask, "Can a homeowner install a lighting control system for their
current home without tearing up the walls or running new wires?" The
answer is yes. Lutron now offers Homeworks RF (radio frequency), this
dimmers and keypads
talk to each other without the need for dedicated wires.
What are the main benefits of owning a lighting control system?
The perfect lighting with just one touch.
Simply tap a button to create the perfect mood for entertaining
or open and close shades. You don't need to fumble around with different dimmers
or switches in different locations of your home to achieve a beautiful look.
In addition, Lutron is the only lighting control manufacturer offering shading
solutions fully controllable and integrated with their lighting
2. Energy and Maintenance:
Dimming saves a tremendous amount of energy. Dimming your lighting by 25% saves
20% of energy. Additionally, your lamp life is extended by up to 4 times. Dim
and the energy-saving benefit increases proportionately.
3. Safety and Security:
With a lighting control system, you have the ability to instantly turn on your
lighting and/or schedule the lighting to turn on/off at various times. This is
a very nice feature, especially in the instance of controlling the outdoor lighting.
Additionally, while away on business or vacation, your home always looks occupied.
If the alarm system is activated due to intrusion or fire, the lighting system
can be integrated
with the alarm system to activate lighting zones for safe exit from the house
or to alert authorities with flashing outdoor lighting.
In rooms with several lighting zones, walls are often cluttered with dimmers
and switches. A Lutron Homeworks lighting control system can replace multiple
dimmers with functional and attractive keypads including engraved and lighted
for easy identification of each function.
Do they really save energy?
Yes, in many ways actually. Dimming alone greatly
reduces energy consumption and may pay for itself through energy
savings, not to mention extending bulb life 10 times or more. Lighting
that combine occupant sensing can also turn lights on as someone
enters a room and then off when they leave,o saving energy from leaving
on when not needed.
But aren't they complicated to set up and to use?
Innovative Electric will work with you to set up the function
of the system and the lighting "look" as part of the
install. From there, a simple tap of a button will recall the look
you want, just like
car radio buttons. Simple changes to the system can be made either
on site or through an ethernet connection while more substantial
changes may require a visit. It is important to note that for the
vast majority of installs, once the system is installed and programmed
the owners liking, there is very little to change. In fact, most
owners say that they would buy another lighting control system if they
to move. Studies show it has the highest repeat rate of purchase
of any installed home technology.
Can a lighting system be expanded or
updated later on as my needs
Yes, the scalability of systems generally allow for this. You can add
dimmers, control locations, and accessories as your home or needs change.
