Smart Lighting: Six Amazing Benefits

Decrease Wall Clutter

Lutron’s keypads offer a solution to wall clutter caused by multiple switches and dimmers. By replacing them with a single keypad, you can maintain all the same functionality while cleaning your wall space.

Home Wide Control

Lutron lighting control systems allow your light switches and keypads to control lights beyond a single room in your home. For example, you can have a “welcome” button by your front door to turn on the lights of nearby rooms, staircases and hallways. Alternatively, you can have a button by your bedside that turns off all the lights in your home except for the primary suite. The options are endless, so that’s why we’ll design bespoke systems for each household based on the customer’s lifestyle. That way, every keypad and light switch makes sense and enhances your life at home.

While there are many players in the lighting control space, we consider Lutron the best option on the market.

Control Natural Light and Home Lighting From One System

We use light switches, dimmers, and keypads to manage the lights installed in our home, so why would we use a separate system to control natural light? Modern homes have big windows that invite lots of natural light, requiring shades and drapes for complete control over all the light in the home. 

When installing motorized shades and drapes, you can tie them into your home lighting system. That means one system controls all the lighting in your home! With one press, you can lower blackout shades to instantly turn your home into the ultimate movie night, no matter the time of day.

When you have SoundVision motorized shades for your home, we can design a system that can adjust the lighting and privacy of your space at the press of a button. We have installed dozens of motorized shade and lighting control systems in Napa County, Sonoma County, Marin County and San Francisco.

Control Your Lights From Keypads, Switches or Your Favorite Apps

When you tie in your lights (and/or shades) with a smart lighting control system, you can control them any way you want. You can still choose to control your lighting through traditional means such as dimmers, switches and keypads.

However, you can also control your home using your favorite assistants such as HomeKit, Alexa, or the Lutron app. The Lutron app allows you to control all the lights in your home from anywhere in the world. If you’re unsure if you left the lights on, you can check from your phone and turn them off. You can manage a ton of customization options right from the Lutron app, including scheduling lights, adjusting dimmers and setting personalized lighting scenes.

Control From Anywhere

Smart lighting and lighting control systems allow you to control your lights however is best for you. You can still use traditional switches and dimmers. However, you can also control your Lutron system with your favorite smart assistants, including the Lutron App, Siri and Alexa.

Perfect Control of Layered Lighting

Layered lighting is a way to give depth to your home. A kitchen is a common space for many layers of light. A few layers you would find in a kitchen include ambient light, under-cabinet, over-cabinet, island lighting and decorative lighting. However, it would be awful to have these all under one dimmer or light switch.

It would be even worse if you had individual dimmers for each lighting layer! It would offer flexibility, sure, but picture this: five unlabeled dimmers cluttering your kitchen wall. Not exactly a sight for sore eyes, right? And adjusting each one to the perfect brightness every time? Way too complicated.

In contrast, a smart lighting control system simplifies everything. With just one keypad press, all your lighting layers are set just the way you like them. Say goodbye to the wall clutter of five dimmers and hello to kitchen lighting perfection. Lighting control restores the intuitiveness of a light switch for layered lighting while minimizing the aesthetic impact of controlling your lights.
