A lighting control system is designed to provide the right amount of light, when it is needed. It’s a digital, smart system that allows for all light circuits in the home or office to be controlled individually, or as groups, to set moods or scenes. Easily set the scene for a dinner party at the touch of a button, and just as easily turn off your home before bed by pressing “Goodnight”.
Combining the use of logic, smart occupancy sensors and built-in time clocks – a lighting control system can determine if there is inadequate daylight in a room and if necessary, turn the lights on. In the same light, it also knows that when there is no one in a room and if so, can turn off the lights.
This can all be done via dedicated in-wall keypads which will replace traditional light switches as well as via any iOS or Android mobile device either in the home, or remotely while on holiday.
Lighting control systems serve three key purposes: Energy management, convenience and practicality.
Window treatments: Curtains, shades & blinds
By being part of the Lutron ecosystem, they can talk to your lights, air-conditioning and underfloor heating to make sure there are perfect light and temperature levels in your home.
Not only is this convenient, but it also ensures that you don’t unnecessarily heat or cool your home when you could just as well use existing light energy to achieve the exact same result.
Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning (HVAC)
Air-conditioners and underfloor heating are large electricity consumers and may often be used when not needed or left on accidentally. Bringing your HVAC system into an energy management system with your lights and window treatments allows you to have control over all aspects in your home that can have an effect on the light or temperature.
This also provides a level of convenience whereby you can control your HVAC system via a mobile device – easily set a single temperature across your whole home and just as easily shut your whole house down with the touch of a button.
