How Can Lutron Lighting Systems Help You Stay Safe in the Winter?

Winter in Connecticut is well underway, and that, unfortunately, means it won’t be long until you’re dealing with the next snow or ice storm. 

Or perhaps you’re heading out of town toward warmer temperatures and you’re concerned about keeping your property safe through the season.

No matter the circumstance, Lutron lighting systems can enhance your family’s safety this winter. 

How, exactly, might lighting control improve your Old Saybrook, CT home’s security presence? 

Simply read on to find out more.

Custom Pathway Lighting

Adding pathway lighting to your property instantly can improve your family’s safety during those long winter nights.

From a keypad press, a pathway lighting scene can guide you from your front door to your vehicle (and vice versa) so that you can avoid any potential snow or ice hazards you might not see in the dark.

Why limit your pathway lighting system to only on and off commands, though? With Lutron lighting control, it can do so much more.

For example, you can program a time clock in your Lutron system to turn on a pathway scene at sunset and have it turn off whenever you’d like  so that you don’t have to deal with the hassle of the on-off switch. 

Some other ways you can control pathway lighting through Lutron: Sensors can notice when you open your front door and instantly turn on your pathway lighting, or you even can use the Lutron Connect  app to control your system as you approach home from an evening out of the house.

You don’t need to be at a light switch to turn off your pathway lighting, either. That can be done either automatically through timers, sensors, or Lutron Connect.

Home Security Lighting Behaviors 

With a Lutron lighting system, you can add custom settings to your lights that can deter any potential intruder.

Whether you’re out of the house for dinner or away on vacation, or even if you’re already home, Lutron lighting control can add to your home’s security presence.


You can integrate Lutron lighting controls with your home’s security system so that if it senses any potential intruder, strobe lights can blare and every light in your home can flicker.

Not only will the intruder know he or she has been caught red-handed, neighbors instantly will notice something has gone awry and can help, as well.

Lutron lighting also can deter potential intruders before they even target your home. 

Just press a button from your Lutron mobile application while you’re away from home and lights instantly will turn on and mirror normal usage patterns. 

Any potential intruder would think your home is occupied and instead would target elsewhere. 

You now have the ability to control your home from anywhere in the world with the installation of a Lutron Connect Bridge, which we install in your home network,  which allows  you to access your home remotely, create timeclocks and scenes, turn lights on and off, create favorites and more.

We at C&T Systems are Lutron lighting system experts and can professionally install and customize one for your Old Saybrook, CT home’s needs. If you have any questions about Lutron, we encourage you to reach out to us!
