Lighting Control Options by Lutron

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

 

Why We Work With Lutron

There are a lot of choices on the market for smart lighting. At Residential Systems Inc., we have chosen to work with Lutron because of their robust platform of leading-edge products that fit into homes of any size and meet most budgets.

 

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.

This revolutionary technology makes it possible to wake up with bright, energizing cool light and end the day with warmer tones to reaffirm your body’s circadian rhythm for a better night’s sleep.

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.

 

A Worthy Investment

Despite the increased complexity of the installation process, smart lighting solutions are less expensive than you think. And, the investment is well worth the upfront cost. You will be able to use it for the next 20+ years with periodic upgrades to the system.

Palladiom Shading System with Exposed Rollers

In recent years, there has been a trend toward modern, industrial interior design— both in homes and commercial spaces—and Lutron has taken note.

Traditionally, automated shades have been installed into recessed pockets or facia that conceal the motor and roller. However, due to demand for more contemporary applications, Lutron’s created their new Palladiom line of automated shades, which are the first of their kind, and specifically designed to be an exposed, elegant shade.

Lutron Palladiom shade features include:

  • Ultra-quiet motors
  • Exposed rollers
  • New drive, brackets, and wire management systems
  • Hidden wires
  • Minimal light gaps
  • New hem bar design
  • Compatibility with Palladiom keypad and new thermostats
  • Ability to accommodate openings as large as 12x12ft

The result is a highly functional, attractive window covering that adds a modern touch to any space.

 

 

Form and Function

Visually, this type of shade stands out from its counterparts due to the use of exposed metal and bracket systems. Lutron’s selection of customization options encompasses hundreds of fabrics and dozens of metal and bracket finishes, ensuring that each shade perfectly suits the space.

The functionality of Palladiom shades is the same as all other motorized shades– they keep the light out, and activate at the touch of a button. Every Palladiom product features the same motor as Lutron’s previous automated models, but this newer model boasts quieter function.
