How lighting can help refresh your perspective and improve your mood
When we talk about smart lighting solutions, we often emphasize the convenience and luxury of controlling your lighting when, where and how you choose.
However, we’ve never discussed in detail how much your health can improve from circadian-based lighting within your Minnetonka, Minnesota, home. Today, we’ll reveal some basic information about Ketra’s tunable lighting, and how it can boost your productivity or help you relax, both critical factors in our wellbeing.
Lutron Lighting Solutions Set the Standard
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.
Combining Expert Light Control and Sleek Design
If you are looking at a lighting control system for your home, you likely have heard about the many benefits in energy efficiency, comfort, and the elegance it can bring to your home, inside and outside.
You may wonder if the controls for your lighting system are going to be pedestrian and ordinary. For many years, interior designers painted light switch wall plates or wrapped them in the wallpaper that was used for wall finishes to make them blend in. In some cases, decorative ones in matching metal or wood were used – and still are.
With some of today’s more minimalist modern décor, switches and controls tend to stand out more. The good news is that Lutron, the leader in lighting systems, recognized that form and function are equally important. Let’s take a quick look at some of Lutron’s style-forward choices in wall-mounted keypads.
Expand Beyond Simple Lighting Control
In the past, we’ve written about the many benefits of lighting control systems. We’ve also written about Lutron, the acknowledged leader in lighting control, and some of its many features. But Lutron has also done some exciting things to blend lighting with other home automation features.
In this blog, we’d like to feature a couple of useful integration features that add convenience and a touch of luxury. We’re big fans of Lutron’s flexibility and control options with lighting. We’re also fans of Sonos, whose wireless speakers and Connect system brings a simple approach to whole home audio. And we’re also fans of Amazon’s Alexa, for the power it brings to voice control.
Lutron is a fan of both too, and they have made it easy to control Sonos audio through their simple wireless remotes and keypads, as well as use your voice to control your lights through Alexa. It can also make your home a little safer by working with Google’s Nest camera.
