Lutron Lighting Solutions for Indoor and Outdoor Spaces
We Build Intelligent Systems that Respond to Your Needs
Lighting control happens every day with the rising and setting of the sun. As light gradually moves across the landscape, we see the earth in a new perspective, and our senses become heightened. The power to control the quality and level of lighting within a given space will not only improve your comfort and enhance the experience but help to save energy as well. Lighting and motorized shade systems provide precise control of daylight – all at the touch of a button. In this edition of our monthly blog, we’ll highlight some of the different Lutron lighting and shade solutions available throughout the different spaces in your Greenwich, Connecticut home.
There is a crucial feature missing from most American kitchens. It’s not Carrera marble counter tops or a sub-zero refrigerator. It’s simply good lighting. If your kitchen is like most, it has neither enough lighting nor the right kind. As the hub of your home, the kitchen space is used for much more than just preparing and eating meals. The space should be flexible enough to entertain guests as well as doing homework. The use of dimmers or a total control system allows you to set the perfect light level for nearly any activity.
This room is typically the largest consumer of energy and, therefore, an important space in which to use light efficiently. Additionally, using a shading system allows you to take advantage of warming sunlight during cooler months and does the opposite in summer months by blocking solar heat gain. Thus, motorized shades reduce both heating and cooling costs.
A multipurpose family room plays host to many different activities, including movie night and Sunday afternoon football, to entertaining guests and lounging around reading books. Because of the way in which the space is used, it’s the perfect candidate for a lighting control system. The ability to create a specific mood using lighting becomes effortless. From your smartphone or tablet, dim the lights for a romantic evening with your significant other or brighten the room for Saturday morning cartoons. Elegant shades designed to complement your home’s décor, also effortlessly transition a space to create the right amount of light for any activity.
Decks, patios, and outdoor spaces were once little more than a homebuilder’s afterthought, but today they have become the focal point of many homes. From outdoor kitchens to elaborate landscaping, the backyard has become an extension of our homes. With Lutron lighting solutions you can easily transition from day to evening and set the exact mood for entertaining guests, relaxing with family members, or enjoying a quiet escape by yourself. Other ways to use lighting control include:
• Illuminate your stunning landscape
• Line pathways and stairs for safety
• Highlight your home’s architectural features
Whether your work from home, either for your employer or because you are self-employed, or simply have a dedicated space with a laptop where you manage household administration, the right lighting can make a difference. With control of both the lights and the shades, work time becomes more enjoyable and productive. Easily dim lamps or overhead lighting for the particular task at hand. Reduce harsh glare on computer screens by controlling the amount of natural lighting entering the room. Whether you want to dim the lights or raise the shades, both can be controlled using a touchscreen device.
With both wired and wireless solutions, a lighting control and shade system can easily add function and ambiance to any room. Start with just a single room or outfit every room in your home including the outdoors to increase convenience, comfort level, and energy savings.
