What is the Best Lutron Lighting Control System for Your Home?
Why HomeWorks QS is Perfect for New Constructions or Remodels
It all started in 1959 when Joel Spira invented the first solid-state electronic dimmer. For the next 60 years, innovation has remained the top priority at Lutron, and it's their expansive lines of products and services that make the brand stand out from competitors in the lighting control industry.
Lutron lighting control systems come in a variety of shapes and sizes. At the entry level, there's the easy-to-install but limited Caseta Wireless. Next, there's the more comprehensive wireless option with RadioRA 2. Designed for easy implementation, it allows for up to 200 connected devices.
Most luxury homes, however, go with Lutron’s marquee lighting control system: HomeWorks QS. Allowing for unlimited devices, custom keypads and switches, and tunable lighting, it’s the most comprehensive solution on the market. No other system offers a more personalized smart lighting experience for your new construction or remodeled home in the Bellaire, TX area.
Find out why below.
Combining the Best of Wired and Wireless
Most of the clients we speak to gravitate to Lutron’s wireless lighting control solutions since they’re more straightforward to implement. Often when it comes to retrofits, clients are also wary about having to deal with an invasive installation.
As we mentioned, these do come with device and space limitations which makes them impractical for larger homes. Ultimately, hard-wired solutions like HomeWorks QS will offer the most reliability and allow for expansion to satellite spaces like pool or guest houses. Luckily, Homeworks QS also integrates many of Lutron’s wireless products like Serena and Sivoia QS shades when necessary, and even some HomeWorks QS products also come in wireless options.
Upgrade Your Lighting Control Options
Control your lighting in the ways that make the most sense for your family, instead of being limited to a basic mobile app. As you design your HomeWorks QS system, you can integrate dedicated touchpads, custom keypads and switches, and voice commands. Lutron’s HomeWorks QS also makes it easier to add your favorite third-party smart devices like Sonos speakers or Nest thermostats.
In particular, the great thing about HomeWorks QS is that it includes all of Lutron's customizable keypads including the Signature, Palladiom, and GRAFIK T lines. Not only can you turn lights on and off from the keypad, but you can assign specific scenes to each button. Get each button engraved with the commands you want and adjust or exchange the scenes from Lutron’s mobile app.
Harnessing the Power of Natural Light
Few systems let you embrace the benefits of natural light more efficiently than HomeWorks QS. It does this in two distinct ways. Not only are there easy-to-use motorized shades to let in sunlight only when you need it, but you can take advantage of Ketra lighting fixtures as well.
During the day, these tunable lights adjust their hue to mimic natural light. Schedule these changes to happen automatically through your HomeWorks QS system. Hue changes even affect your mood and help you through specific activities.
Encourage your kids during homework hours with cool white hues that promote activity and focus. Let your mind relax at the end of the day with warmer white lighting. From your app or dedicated keypads, it's easy to pull up these settings when needed, or schedule them to happen at a given time each day.
Embrace a More Stylistic Approach
Beyond their added customization capabilities, Lutron’s high-end dimmers and switches also offer more stylistic choices for your home. Each comes in a variety of colors and finishes to fit your unique preferences. Do you have a particularly minimalist design? Go with the sleek and elegant models from the Palladiom and GRAFIK T lines.
One added benefit of upgrading to HomeWorks QS is greater variety when it comes to your shading options. Drapes, roller shades, honeycomb shades, sheer blinds, wooden blinds, roman shades, and tensions shades are all possible.
After choosing the model you want, select the fabric, color, and openness factor. Not sure what to go with? There is a dedicated page on the Lutron website that helps you with your decision, and your local Lutron dealers will guide you through the process as well.
