Dimming Saves Energy.With Lutron systems you can dim all the lights in your home with the touch of a button. Lutron dimmers are also good for the environment. They save energy and extend the life of your halogen and incandescent bulbs. Longer-lasting bulbs mean fewer are going into landfills, significantly reducing our waste stream.
Fluorescent and LED dimmingLutron dimmers can work with almost any type of light—LED, fluorescent, halogen and incandescent. Fluorescent and LED lighting are highly efficient, and Lutron can control and dimthese lighting sources flawlessly down to 1% with Lutron fluorescent dimming ballasts and LED drivers.
Occupancy sensors provide light when needed and save energy when rooms are unoccupied. Occupancy sensors are perfect for interior pathways and exterior lighting areas that require illumination only when someone is present.
Daylight sensors control the lights and shades in the home by taking advantage of the available sunlight. The sensors balance the amount of electric light and daylight, saving energy and maintaining a constant level of light in the room.
Homeworks Fan Speed Control.Complement your system with ceiling fans, which can reduce cooling costs. The HomeWorks Fan-Speed Control provides local quiet speed control of your ceiling fan, and can be controlled as part of the whole-house lighting control system.
Shading solutions. By controlling window shades, drapery tracks, and skylight shades, homeowners can reduce glare and solar heat gain, which reduces cooling costs—all at the touch of a button.
Sustainable fabrics. Lutron roller shades are available in a variety of fabric styles, textures, and colors. Lutron’s sustainable materials are either PVC free or are 100% recycled. This has allowed some fabrics to receive certification from third party organizations such as GREENGUARD and Oeko-Tex.
Green button programmingWith the Green setting, you can program keypad buttons to reduce lighting zones by a specific percentage. For example, a green button that is programmed to trim 15% off the light output will save nearly 15% in energy with only a minimal change in the perceived light level in the room.
