The average homeowner’s electric bill is more than 20% due to the energy costs of lighting. As you incorporate more energy-efficient lighting solutions throughout your home, your energy costs will lower. In addition to utilizing more energy-efficient LED bulbs over traditional incandescent lighting, dimming your lighting will also lower energy costs.
When Lutron’s Joel Spira invented the first solid-state light dimmer in 1959, the changed the way lighting is consumed in the modern home without sacrificing ambiance. Dimmers work thanks to the electronic dimmer component, called a triac. The longer the triac is off with the lights dimmed, the lower the lighting output, and the more energy savings you’ll see on your next bill.
Ketra was acquired by Lutron in 2018, pairing Ketra’s innovative lighting technology with Lutron’s world-class engineering and lighting control solutions. Ketra light sources let you control the color temperature, designate programmed scenes, and adjust lighting along the color spectrum. By managing your light, you can control your day!
Cozy and warm light helps you wind down in the evenings while bright, white light can energize you for even the most mundane tasks at the mid-afternoon slump of the day. Ketra’s Natural Light solution combines the comfort of incandescent illumination with modern LED technology. Natural light provides a satisfying living and working environment, more so than its artificial incandescent counterpart.
Recently announced at CEDIA Expo 2019, Lutron’s LED+ dimming technology removes some of the frustrating complexity that exists when installing dimmers in the home – save time by not needing to worry if you’ve got the right dimmer for the right lighting load. This is less of a problem for homeowners and more of a challenge for electronics integrators, but we appreciate the innovation! It certainly saves us time on projects.
LED+ Maestro dimmers and Lutron’s DIN Rail are automatically adaptable to forward or reverse phase bulbs and can control 250W LED bulbs, 500W incandescent, halogen lighting, ELV (electronic low voltage), and 400 VA MLV (magnetic low voltage) in one dimmer device. All of the LED+ dimming technology is controllable with the tap of a button using your smart home automation control system.
