Your Guide to Lutron Lighting Controls


Have you ever dreamed of having a fancy home where you can make a room totally dark in the middle of the day, or turn the lights on and off just by clapping? These things aren’t reserved for TV shows or movie stars.

Thanks to Lutron lights and their lighting control systems, you can create simple smart home functions with amazing results. All you need to do is educate yourself on the opportunities available, then get to work on home design ideas and their installation processes.

The following is a quick overview of what Lutron lights can do for you and the various ways you can make them work.

Understanding How Lutron Lights Can Transform a Room

Most of the time, homeowners focus on natural light as a way to add a bit of variation to a room. With the help of the right tools and professional design insights, though, it’s easy to discover many ways to make each room in the house look just right.

Here are three things you can do with Lutron’s light fixtures and lighting controls.

Set the Mood

Next time you’re in the mood to unwind, turn the lights down low. A dimmer can easily take a bright, busy room and make it a cozy, comfortable space.

This is perfect for when you don’t feel like doing much of anything, or when you want to spend some quality time with someone special. You can use dimmers throughout the whole room or set them up in addition to your standard lights.

Such an approach allows you to play with different levels of brightness and visibility. Use the dimmers alone when you really want to create a cozy area, then turn a regular light on to help you find the remote or to see down the hall.

Open up the Room

Maybe you already have the perfect reading nook or a soft blanket that helps you relax no matter which room you’re sitting in. But, are you still trying to figure out what to do with your small dining area or the guest bedroom that feels a little cramped?

Add more lights. When you install dimmers and find the right window treatments, the whole room takes on a new look. This goes beyond a fresh paint job or a furniture rearrangement.

Lighting is the final touch that can make anyone who enters the space go “WOW.” It can turn a tight, uncomfortable room into an open, welcoming setting.

Using Lutron Lighting Controls

Whether you want to snuggle up or open up, you need to think about controls as well as aesthetic. Let’s dive into the various ways you can manage your Lutron lighting controls.

Remote Controls

There’s no need to get off the couch and change the light switch on the far wall of the room anymore. Instead, just make sure you have your auto lighting control remote handy whenever you take a seat.

Depending on your lighting system, you’ll have a single or double lighting remote. The single allows you to turn a light on and off, and control how dim or bright it is, too. The double lets you do this for more than one set of lights in the room.

You can connect various lights to operate on the same single remote, in which case they’ll always be in sync. Or, you can play with different light settings on a double remote.

A Wireless Switch

As cool as remotes for your light fixtures are, not all switches are outdated. You can swap your traditional wall switch for an innovative wireless switch.

This is how it works: instead of a boring switch, you have a small pad with a stylish button in the corner. This is the on/off control. There’s also a quiet digital dimmer, which you just glide your finger on in order to set to your liking.

This amazing solution requires no rewiring or changes to the structure of your home. All it does is replace an old lighting system with a new, better way of doing things, yet with functions that still feel natural!

Occupancy/Vacancy Sensors

If you like the thought of making light controls easier, you’re going to love the idea of not needing any controls at all! That’s what Lutron’s automatic lighting sensors can do.

Instead of feeling around for a light switch in the middle of the night or worrying about losing a remote, all you have to do is walk into a room. The sensors will be able to pick up on your motions and turn the lights on accordingly.

Each auto lighting control device is made to be installed on the ceiling, which allows for the controls to best pick up on motions within the room. Test your positioning with the use of the orange lights to ensure you’ve put the controls in the best possible spot. This allows you to get the most out of the energy-saving functions available.

Discover the Benefits of Lutron Lights

That’s right – not only are Lutron lights beautiful, forward-thinking, and incredibly efficient, but they’re energy-saving, too! With just a few installations around the house, you have the opportunity to make a significant difference in your monthly energy bill.

If the design possibilities and easy control functions weren’t enough to convince you to get Lutron lights, this is definitely the cherry on top. But, you won’t be able to enjoy these benefits just by reading about them alone. It’s time to give your home the upgrade it deserves and look into Lutron light installations.
