Lutron Smart Home Automation Lighting Control Systems

Lutron is a well-known lighting control system manufacturer. They make a range of lighting control systemsand associated products that allow precise control of the lighting at your home, indoor and outdoor, from entry-level through to advanced lighting automation systems.

Lighting as a component of a smart home automation system

Smart home automation is all about seamlessly integrating technology into your home to deliver convenience, peace of mind and efficiency. Lighting is typically the technology that first attracts homeowners to home automation. This is due in part to its ease of installation and use, and its success in decreasing energy costs. However, lighting control is much more than cutting back on costs and saving energy.

HomeWorks QS

This is one of Lutron’s higher-end systems designed to integrate all your light fixtures (indoor and outdoor), window treatments, and lighting controls into one main platform — plus it can integrate with other technologies and home systems like smart appliances, HVAC systems, home audio systems, security systems, sprinklers, and more — all while saving energy.

Rather than switching through different control management systems, with HomeWorks QS you have centralised control from one system, which manages all your lighting and shading and other smart devices from any location, with hand-held remotes, touchscreens, and mobile devices — while you’re at home or away.

This means less hassle, less time spent adjusting your products, and more time to enjoy your smart home. Because HomeWorks QS lets you combine keypads with other manufacturers’ controls, you can also maintain consistent aesthetics and eliminate wall clutter.

Lutron HomeWorks QS is can be implemented in renovations and can be retrofitted. It is highly suitable for new construction with open walls so that your installer can prewire for high voltage and low voltage communication.

It’s important to note that this is not a wireless service, the system requires wiring. Thus, having an environment to run those wires and set it up properly is essential. Lutron has many other wireless solutions that we can implement at your property if wired isn’t the right fit for your home!

Sivoia QS

Lutron’s Sivoia QS Wireless shading system is beautiful, scalable, and reliable. It’s the next generation of shading technology and the ideal solution for total light control. Sivoia QS can control the entire Lutron family of automated window treatments, including roller shades, traditional drapery tracks, the Kirbé vertical drapery system, tensioned shades, Roman shades and horizontal sheer blinds.

Sivoia QS Wireless offers precision control of shades in one room, multiple rooms, or an entire home or building all at the touch of a button. For convenience and elegance, use Sivoia QS window treatments to enhance ypur décor while silently controlling daylight or providing privacy at night.

Its simplified wiring and common communication language allow for easy integration with Lutron lighting controls, including GRAFIK Eye QS and Quantum systems, delivering total light control to any space.

RA2 Select

Lutron’s RA2 Select is a wireless total home control system. This energy-saving system gives you the ability to adjust the amount of daylight and electric light (using light controls and automated shades) as well as temperature in a single room or throughout your whole home. The system also turns off standby power to small appliances when they’re not in use.

Lutron’s RA2 Select is ideal for existing homes and new construction. Because RA2 Select features Lutron wireless technology, the system installs just as easily into existing homes (retrofitting) as it does into new construction. With RA2 Select, you can enjoy personalised smart lighting and shade control for any home, on any budget.

Final Thoughts

Lutron is head and shoulders above any other provider when it comes to lighting and blind control because it is their core business; however, all their technologies can be integrated with a third party system to deliver a complete home automation system. You could use Savant, KNX, or Control 4 as the third party, for example.
