Increased Security and Safety
Did you know that a well-lit home is less likely to be targeted by potential criminals? One of the most significant features of lighting control is the ability to give the appearance that your home is occupied when it’s not, such as when you go on vacation. You can set a randomized pattern of lights to turn on, so any unwanted intruders have a hard time detecting if you’re away.
Lutron systems have excellent integration capabilities with home automation systems to give you more control capabilities. Integrating these systems enables you to set “away” modes, which can activate your smart surveillance system, trigger cameras, and manage lights from anywhere in the world.
The environment isn’t the only thing that benefits from decreased energy use—your energy bill does too! Lutron occupancy sensors can detect activity in a room. So, when you leave for work in the morning and forget to turn your bathroom light off, your lighting control system will automatically turn it off after a certain amount of time without movement.
Plus, with precise dimming control, you only need to use as much lighting as you need. Why have a room more brightly lit than it needs to be? Lower the brightness of your lights while watching TV in the evening with your family or enjoying a glass of wine on the patio before dinner. You can even put your outside lights on a timer.
Add More Convenience to Your Home
With a lighting control system like Lutron, you can control the lighting on your property with ease on the devices you already use and love, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. Lutron also offers customizable wall-mounted controls to match the interior design of your home.
