Imagine your landscape lighting slowly fading out as the sun rises while your bathroom lights power on with a soft to greet you as you awake. As you get ready for work, the lights in your bedroom and kitchen come at an increasingly bright level, helping you get into gear for a morning in traffic and a day in the office. While you read the paper over coffee, you touch a remote to raise the shades to let the sunlight in. When you leave, you turn off everything with a single button, and after a hard day’s work, turn them back with a visor control as you pull into your driveway.
Regardless of the time, day or night, Lutron HomeWorks gives you total control and optimal convenience in programmed, user-friendly task, decorative, and security lighting control.
Consider the benefits that such a lighting control system will offer, and how it will enrich your lifestyle by making your residential lighting design an extension of your thoughts, will, and desire. Illuminations Lighting and Design can equip you with this skillful blend of user friendliness and state of the art sophistication with a Lutron HomeWorks lighting control system. Built upon a foundation of 40 years in lighting control innovation, Lutron HomeWorks represents a whole house lighting control solution that is fully compatible with home security systems and home entertainment audio/visual devices. Not only does HomeWorks allow you more options and convenience in manipulating lighting effects and levels, but it also filters out externally induced voltage variance in order to stabilize lighting levels at the desired settings. This in turn helps to buffer your home’s electrical systems from intermittent power surges and better protects your equipment from power spikes.
The strength of Lutron HomeWorks lies in three key elements integral to the system control software. These key elements handle the intuitive, time function, and personalized control elements of your home lighting automation system. Conditional logic gives the HomeWorks lighting control system the ability to behave intuitively, activating certain features of your program only after specific conditions have been fulfilled. Exterior lights, for example, will only come on when system sensors determine it is dark. Different lights can be set to turn on at the push of a single button, indicating that it is time for lunch and dinner. They can even add music to the lighting theme to set the mood for guests! This blend of user control and automated functionality is made possible through flexible programming at the keypad control level and an astronomical clock that knows when sunrise and sunset will occur on any given day in your particular location. This allows the system to be programmed to turn outdoor lights on at specific times before or after dark, and to turn them off again at a certain point at or around daybreak. Many clients feel this home automation controls provide them with an additional layer of security lighting, because the lights can be set to turn themselves on before a person drives home after dark in the evening, or to come on just before sunrise when the homeowner goes outside to water the garden, check the mailbox, or grab the morning paper.
In spite of the high-end technology utilized by HomeWorks control system, ILD makes the system and new home wiring so user friendly that even children, guests and our clientele can use the system.
