Thoughtful lighting design showcases the interior design and architectural features of a new home build or renovation. A custom home may require several types of lighting for ambient, task and accent purposes, including:
A smart lighting designer is an invaluable resource for drawing up a comprehensive, whole-home design and sourcing fixtures like lamps, chandeliers, ceiling fixtures, and wall-mounted sconces.
One feature that makes smart lighting so popular with homeowners is the ease of installation: smart bulbs and switches can replace non-smart components in an already-wired home, and wireless elements can be added during retrofits or renovations. However, if you’re in the process of building a new home or laying cable for other purposes, we recommend prewiring a smart lighting system.
A hard-wired system is more reliable and delivers a consistent performance — an important feature when we’re discussing light fixtures that are used daily to complete tasks at home. Additionally, prewiring for a centralized lighting system can eliminate the need for multiple panels or switches cluttering up the walls and give way to sleek, custom keypads or touchscreens. This, along with concealed, in-wall wiring, allows for a cleaner aesthetic finish.
At Electronics Professionals, we recommend Lutron lighting for home lighting control. Lutron has long been the leading manufacturer of smart lighting systems, with solutions ranging from single-room to whole-home. They offer an impressive array of dimmers, sensors, wall-mounted keypads, remotes and smartphone apps that make lighting control effortless. Lutron also has preset scenes and scheduling features that allow homeowners to adjust lighting levels and ambience with the touch of a button.
Additionally, Lutron Ketra is a human-centric lighting solution that automatically adjusts the hue, color temperature, intensity and brightness of lighting to mimic natural sunlight throughout the day. Human-centric lighting can promote energy and alertness during the day, more restful sleep at night, and circadian balance. Offering Lutron Ketra to your clients can set your business apart from competitors in the field.
