Which Lutron Lighting System Is Right For You?

A lighting control systems are more than just a luxury item; it is a lifestyle enhancement. While the aesthetic aspect may be the initial impression it imparts, a lighting control system also brings the benefits of convenience, security and energy savings.

You may think that you need a large house or property for an investment in lighting control to pay off,  but you’ll be happy to know that you don’t need to be a Vanderbilt to afford it.

For the past 15 years we have exclusively used Lutron for lighting control systems.  For decades, Lutron has been the industry leader in lighting control, making residential and commercial systems that scale from apartments and condominiums to the largest homes and buildings. Lutron makes several lighting control systems that can cover one or two rooms all the way to a home comparable to the famous Newport mansions. So, which one might be right for you?

Is Your Home Network Up to Par?

Three Signs That You Might Need an Upgrade

Is Your Home Network Up to Par?

Diagnosing networking problems is often challenging.  Since almost everything we do with our devices requires network connectivity, it’s difficult to pin down a specific problem. If your computer is loading web pages slowly, it might be related to your hardware or software. If your smartphone or tablet apps are not responsive, it could be related to the device itself or the software it’s running. 

Occasionally problems are temporary. Perhaps a website you’re accessing is slow for a period of time, and the experience is the same on all of your devices. Sometimes while streaming a show on Netflix, the video quality slows and reminds you of old standard definition quality with bad reception. It could be that your internet connection just slowed down temporarily.  And there’s always the possibility that it’s not your network or any device. The truth is, internet connectivity can suffer in many parts of the Rhode Island countryside.

How a Lutron Lighting System Plays Well with Others

We are living in a world awash with smart devices. Every day, something new comes out that adds intelligence and connectivity to an everyday device or appliance. Would you like a coffeemaker that can be turned on via Amazon Alexa voice control?

We Rhode Islanders are sometimes skeptical. Perhaps we don’t need a connected coffee maker, or maybe we think it’s a great idea. Regardless, what we do want in smart devices and home automation is the ability to make that automated functionality work well with other features in our home in the Westerly area. There are quite a few “connected” light bulbs and electrical plugs out there, but they only connect to one app on your phone. 

When it comes to lighting systems and control, there is one undisputed leader in the field – Lutron.  Lutron originated the first solid-state lighting dimmer way back in 1959, and has not stopped since, creating sophisticated lighting control systems for both residential and commercial use. 

Lutron has invested heavily in integration with other systems. If you are looking for a lighting control system, you want to be able to integrate it with other home control solutions, either now or in the future. 

Let’s take a look at some of the ways Lutron lighting systems play well with others.
