From Simple Dimmers to Smart Home Lighting

If you walk into the average home, you may see a dimmer in a dining room or family room.  Interestingly enough, you may not see one in a bath or some other place where it would be beneficial as a way to conserve energy or set a mood.  In upper-end homes, you are more likely to see dimmers employed, as lighting is more complicated and there may be different banks of lights in a given area.

You may be wondering why we're talking about dimmers when we often talk about smart home lighting on these pages.  Let's call the simple dimmer the gateway drug to intelligent lighting.  Unlike other gateway drugs, this one has very positive effects and no negatives.

Dimmers help to save energy by enabling you to adjust light levels.  They can help set the right ambiance or act as a nightlight to keep you from stumbling in a dark hallway or room.  They can shine the right amount of light on a feature of a room or artwork. 

When it comes to lighting switches and controls, one company has long led the way.  We partner with Lutron for lighting solutions because they have been doing it for over 50 years, and their products scale from simple dimmers to whole-building solutions for skyscrapers. Let’s take a closer look at how Lutron can make your home lighting smarter in Minneapolis.
