Relax in total safety and security using smart home automation
It’s difficult to truly understand how the light around us influences our daily lives. Lighting can have a significant impact on both our daily activities and our mood. Of course, lighting also plays a major role in a home’s interior design.
Until recently, however, your options for using technology to take advantage of light in new ways were minimal. Using wireless lighting control, however, you can set the ideal mood for any occasion in your Scarsdale, NY home. You’ll find yourself living a more relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. Want to know more? Read on.
One of the obvious and most powerful benefits of wireless lighting control is being able to use one device to manage every fixture in your home. Having one central system to control everything makes it easier to set your lights how you see fit. Having centralized control also makes it easy to automate your lighting control system for even greater convenience.
For example, you can use motion and proximity sensors to turn all your lights off when you depart for work. Once the sun sets or a motion detector senses you approaching the front door, the lights will come back on. Automated lighting control is also an excellent way to simplify your daily routine. Your bedroom lights can build gradually at sunrise when it’s time to wake, then fade in the evening as bedtime approaches.
Lutron is one of our favorite brands for wireless lighting control, and they make this type of centralized control system simple. Lutron’s RadioRA 2 system can support up to 200 devices, giving you a stable basepoint in a room or two before expanding the system throughout your house. If you’re sold on the benefits of lighting control and are ready to jump in with both feet, Lutron’s HomeWorksQS system supports up to 10,000 devices along with integrated control with Lutron smart thermostats.
A PRETTIER HOME
Your light fixtures play a crucial role in setting your home’s aesthetic, both in terms of mood and how elements within a room are shown. Conventional lighting systems only offer you the choice of having your lights on or off, but wireless lighting control systems use dimmers. This way, you get much more fine-tuned control over your lighting.
Lutron’s engineers have taken this principle one step further with tunable lighting fixtures from Ketra. While older dimmers only give you control over the intensity of the light coming from a fixture, Ketra’s fixtures use warm-dimming bulbs that let you set color temperature and intensity separately. Now you have a much wider range of lighting options to choose from.
If you’re worried about all this technology cluttering your home, you needn’t be concerned. Lutron has made it simple to blend your fixtures and control panels in with your existing interior design aesthetic. The RadioRA 2 and HomeWorksQS systems both feature several stylish keypad and dimmer designs. You can also put custom engravings on those devices, and there is a wide range of available finishes to suit any style.
