Until about 10 years ago, lighting was simple. You screwed in a bulb and switched it on or off. Today, this experience is dramatically different. Investing in smart lighting technology for your home is no longer a should-do, it’s a must-have. Why? Lighting is critical to everything you do inside of your home, from waking and sleeping to dining and entertaining. With smart lighting you can: – Program intuitive lighting scenes based on how and when you use a space – Control energy costs with automated fixtures – Highlight your home’s architecture, artwork and design – Mimic the sun’s natural light patterns indoors – Enjoy the mood and productivity-boosting effects of different light temperatures – Increase security while you’re away

The Home Technology Revolution: Personalized Lighting
As pioneers of innovation, Lutron recently added personalized lighting options for residential applications, giving homeowners the ability to customize their lighting like never before.

Personalized lighting can also create exciting scenes with color saturation— illuminate your home with the colors of your favorite sports team, or add a festive splash of color to your holiday decorations. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Don’t Forget Shades
You can’t control the light in the home without controlling the greatest light source of them all, the sun. Uncontrolled daylight causes glare, fades surfaces, and increases the temperature within the home. By adding automated shades into your lighting control strategy, you can create the exact desired look and feel inside your home, at any time during the day.
Complex Systems Made Simple With Expert Integration
Most of these new systems are centered around LED technology embedded in the fixture, which has changed the game not just for performance, but also for installation and integration. These complex systems are made simple and user-friendly when you use a trusted integrator like Residential Systems Inc. We understand the intricate infrastructure needed to wire a home for emerging technologies, and provide the quickest and easiest way to bring these new technologies home. It’s also advisable to combine your integrator with an experienced lighting designer and a good electrician to maximize the benefits.
