VLuron Lighting & Automation
Lighting control is so convenient. That is why it emerged in the first place, and that’s why so many people like the simplicity of one button control. Lighting control pays for itself five times a day: GOOD MORNING, GOODBYE, WELCOME HOME and GOOD NIGHT. And sometime during the day you’re going to hit the COOKING or RELAX button. Lighting control is one product people will never give up once they’ve lived with it. Here’s another big convenience for lighting control: Dimming can extend the life of a light bulb, which is especially compelling in big rooms with high ceilings. By dimming a bulb you can significantly increase bulb life and reduce the number of time you have to replace bulbs. By utilizing the astronomic time clock you can set events to happen relative to sunrise or sunset or at a specified time during the day or night. Say good bye to your outdoor lights coming on at the wrong time of day and always adjusting your timers.
Light Control Increases Comfort and Improves Productivity.
Light Control Increases Comfort and Improves Productivity. Energy-saving light controls provide a comfortable and productive visual environment. Enhancing the comfort levels of a space leads to increases in productivity. Better lighting not only can reduce the energy consumption of a room, it can improve the quality of work from its occupants. While there are many ways to reduce energy use, most involve sacrificing something. Few actually enrich the quality of living and working area like dimmers. Dimmers and other lighting controls allow individuals to adjust light levels for specific entertainment options, enhance ambiance, set a mood, and take advantage of daylight to reduce energy use.
Going Green/Saving Energy and Money
Through the use of dimming, occupancy sensors and HVAC control you can save money while still maintaining the optimal temperature and lighting. Tired of finding lights on in rooms with no one in them, occupancy and vacancy sensors prevent the lights staying on when a space is unoccupied. All light sources use less energy when dimmed. While incandescent lights are typically associated with dimming, all lighting sources, including halogen, CFLs, and, LED bulbs, can be dimmed. Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) control let you have the house at exactly the temperature you want while saving money.
Controlling Natural Light Shading solutions (electronically controlled shades) are also energy efficient and can be tied into Lutron’s Radio Ra2 system. Shading systems save energy by harvesting daylight and reducing the load on HVAC systems, making any project more eco-friendly. Shading can also be made from eco-friendly materials. Sustainable materials from Lutron are either PVC-free or are 100% recycled. Shading also provides another major benefit. It prevents the sun from bleaching out the color of your beautiful furniture and rugs. Over time the power effect of the sun will cause the color to fade in your rug, floors, furniture, & even artwork. Shading is a way to protect your investment in your house and keep it looking its best.
Lighting can make a room look beautiful in so many different ways. You can light the same space in four different ways and have it look completely different. Naturally for homeowners with art collections, lighting can enhance (or diminish) their paintings, photography, and sculptures. Aesthetics extend to the outdoors as well. Lighting Control reduces wall clutter when you have multiple banks of switches combined together. With Radio Ra 2 you can replace these with one keypad and will make the space more appealing. With Lutron’s design tool we can help accessorize and colorize your space with data receptacles, outlets and much more. If your space requires a specific color then we can provide you with a solution. From our satin or gloss finishes to our metal wall plates we can help customize your space around your interior designer. In most homes, each bank of light fixtures (called a load) is connected to an individual dimmer installed in your wall. For example, you might have a chandelier, two strings of recessed lights, pendants, a ceiling fan, a lamp, etc. Each load is controlled by its own dimmer that’s installed in the wall, and it doesn’t take long to see how the wall clutter starts to build up.
