Lutron Smart Lighting
Lighting in the home is essential to our enjoyment of living and well-being. Homes are designed to benefit as much as possible from natural light and for a good reason. Natural light helps keep us happy and positive. The other light sources around the home can also influence the way we feel. Well-designed lighting can help accentuate parts of your home when natural light is not available, developing the atmosphere you desire.
At Finite Solutions, we use the best available brands to complement your smart home and lighting is no exception. Lutron is a pioneer in the lighting control industry, incorporating lights and shades into a smart lighting control system.
Advanced Smart Lighting Control Solutions
With Lutron lighting, you gain advanced control over the lighting of your home. One of the features is light dimming, which presents a range of benefits. Whilst most light switches simply turn lights on or off, with Lutron dimmers you’re able to flexibly adjust the intensity of the light to alter the mood and atmosphere of the room or to assist with any specific tasks throughout the home.
Alternatively, you can rely on the automatic adjustment features. The dimming options work with the available natural light to help you maintain your home’s light levels ensuring they remain constant as daylight comes and goes.
As a result of using light dimmers, you only use the amount of light that is necessary at a given time during the day, as it is based on the levels of daylight available. This cost-effective solution saves energy and makes for a greener lifestyle.
If energy efficiency is a key factor to your home, Lutron also offers occupancy and vacancy sensors that can be installed by Finite. These Lutron lighting devices mean that lights are switched off once the room is unoccupied. Coupled with the dimmers, you’re bound to have a reduced energy bill.
The system’s adaptability is not just intended to dim the lights, either. Certain Lutron lighting products have dynamic lighting capabilities, meaning they are able to adjust the colour to assist with daylight management within any indoor space. It creates the perfect environment by offering better aesthetics and/or better eye comfort.
Experiencing regular daylight is essential to our mood and well-being. Lutron lighting products not only aim to control artificial light but provide enhanced control over the daylight within the home, making it useful at the right time and for the right purposes.
This precise control means you can reduce glare when daylight levels are too intense. Whether you’re trying to enjoy your smart home entertainment system or the sun is low in the sky and shining directly into your space, you are able to activate the shades at a touch of a button. Using the user interface, you are also able to easily maximise the light in a space, if for example, you are performing a task that requires more light.
The Lutron shades can also take advantage of the seasons. The summer mode can ensure blinds are used to restrict heat and keep the room cool. On the other hand, the winter mode can perform the opposite, allowing southern light into the room, keeping it warm and reducing energy consumption on heating.
The added benefit to controlled blinds and shading is the safety features offered. Remotely closing your shades whilst away can restrict the view inside your home and provide the illusion that the house is occupied.
Lutron Integration Within A Smart Home
Lutron devices are designed to be integrated with other manufacturer’s products, as part of one large ensemble to make a modern smart home. As an installer, Finite is able to expertly integrate Lutron lighting and shades with a central smart home control system such as Crestron or Control 4, for example. Lights and shades can also be integrated with devices such as Google Home and Sonos sound systems.
