If you are having a new home built, act now to have your home wired for the very best in lighting control. With Lutron HomeWorks® installed by Illuminations Lighting and Design, you will enjoy the very best in comfort, flexibility and elegance. As Houston’s leading residential electrical contractor, we specialize in Lutron lighting sysytems.
The comfort that the HomeWorks® system gives you derives from the ability to control every aspect of your interior lighting, landscape lighting, and even your window shades.
If you want to wake up gently in the morning, you can have Lutron HomeWorks® gradually open your shades and raise your lights as you get up and prepare for the day. You can set the lights in your kitchen to bright task levels while you are preparing food, and then lower them to set the mood for an evening meal. Later, while watching a movie in your home theater, you can press one button to lower the shades and dim the lights to create a cinema-like setting right in the comfort of your home.
All of these amazing functions are managed by simple keypads with one-touch functionality.
Tabletop keypads and lamp dimmers can be installed by your bed, on your kitchen countertops, or even on end-tables. One keypad can control many different functions. This is because each controller of the home lighting system communicates on a wired network or wireless channel with a central controller that contains off the information to control every aspect of you home lighting, entertainment, and environmental controls.
Thanks to this, you do not need very many, or very large, unsightly switches. Just one push of a single keypad button will activate a programmed lighting theme, lower or raise shades, and set the mood. You can do this for the entire house if you want, or you can set varying light levels in each individual room of your home independently of one another.
The programmable nature of Lutron HomeWorks® allows you to automate these many features as well as control them yourselves.
This is an amazing time saver for today’s busy, professional family. At specific times of day, such as sunrise or noon, various environmental, lighting, and audio visual programs activate on their own to set an atmosphere within your house that is appropriate to the activities and mindset of that time of day.
We can even program the system with themes appropriate to the four seasons and for major holidays. Practical concerns like daylight savings time are also programmed into the system. If you host a lot of parties at your house, ILD lighting designers can create programs for you that turn on all the lights in certain rooms at once, then turn them off for you when your guests leave so you do not have to go from room to room to do so.
Lutron HomeWorks® also offers a number of special features that make your life more convenient and secure.
When you are away from home, we can program the system with the Vacation Feature to turn various lights on and off to make your home looked “lived in.” The home lighting control system can also be integrated with your home alarm to trigger lights if an intruder is detected.
If you want to directly manipulate your lighting, you can do so remotely with your iPad, iPhone, or even from a laptop overseas. When you return home at night, you do not have to walk through a dark driveway up to a dark house. With a visor control, you can turn on your interior and exterior house lights as you approach your home.
