Enjoy a Life of Luxury with Lutron’s Lighting Controls
Effortlessly Manage Your Home’s Lighting with Lutron HomeWorks QS
Imagine waking to sunlight filtering through your bedroom windows as the shades rise with the dawn. The lights settle into the color of sunrise and transition throughout the day, simulating the changing color of natural outdoor light.
In the evening, before friends and family arrive for dinner, you tap the “Entertain” button on an elegant in-wall keypad. The lights in your dining area transform to the color of golden candlelight, while the living room lights illuminate the space in splashes of amber, teal, and tangerine. The shades open to reveal beautiful landscape lighting, and your “Dining” playlist streams through your home as you prepare dinner in a perfectly lit kitchen.
A life of luxury.
At Ratio AV, we partner with Lutron, a global leader in lighting and shade automation. In 2019, they came out with Lutron HomeWorks QS, their next-generation lighting and shading control solution for luxury homes. Let’s explore what this means to homeowners in Layton, UT, and the surrounding areas.
What Is HomeWorks QS?
HomeWorks QS enables seamless control of natural and electric light while also integrating audio-visual and HVAC systems. You can set the perfect lighting for any occasion and mood, raise and lower your shades, adjust the temperature, and control your AV equipment with one touch.
And in place of light switches are architectural keypads with designer finishes. Select from matte, metals, and glass in numerous colors that complement any décor. The Palladiom keypad is a popular solution, offering subtle elegance and intuitive control. When you’re away, pull up the Lutron app on your smartphone to turn on the entryway and landscape lights and set the temperature, ensuring you return to a welcoming, well-lit, and warm home.
How Do I Control Natural Light?
From these same controls, manage your daylight effortlessly by raising or lowering shades in one or every room, or let your home do it for you. We can program your automated window coverings to preset schedules and install sensors that open and close them throughout the day based on the level of direct daylight. This brings in the beauty and health benefits of diffuse sunlight while reducing interior damage from direct UV rays.
Lutron shading solutions offer quiet, precise control of daylight and come in numerous styles and hundreds of different fabrics. Some options include Sivoia QS roller shades, wood blinds, roman shades, and elegant drapery systems. These come in varying opacities, from sheer to dim-out and blackout. Their Palladiom line is a popular window shade, offering sleek elegance that blends seamlessly with today's modern, minimalistic aesthetics.
How Can I Upgrade?
As a certified Lutron installer, we can walk you through the entire process, answering any questions, recommending solutions, and ensuring the system aligns with your needs and lifestyle. We’ll review your current equipment to determine what you’d like to carry over to your new system and what devices you’d like to replace.
At Ratio AV, we’ve been creating easy-to-use home automation and lighting solutions for 20 years. To learn more about Lutron HomeWorks QS or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Ratio AV today.
