Lutron QS Homeworks is probably the best lighting control system available on the market. Lutron are an extremely well known brand in the market. QS Homeworks is highly reliable, highly flexible, highly styled switches, and has an eight year limited warranty.
Having used other brands over the years, we now only sell Lutron Product for the simple reason that IT WORKS and is extremely well supported by the manufacturer. It is a product that you will use on a daily basis and not wonder 'Will it work today?', it just does!
Dimming module types are available to allow almost any types of lighting to be controlled. examples of dimming types are DMX, Phase Dimming, 0-10V, Switching loads and DALI.
With todays energy costs, a large house - even with LED lighting - can give you a considerable electricity bill.
Adding occupancy sensors, good lighting programming, and use of timeclocks to automate daily tasks activating only when required will help reduce your usage and thus your bills. This especially applies to pumps, motors, & electric heating of any kind. Have Air conditioning and/or underfloor heating? we can also integrate it to bring it under Lutron control and minimise use when the property is not occupied.
Any button on any lighting keypad can be programmed to control any lighting circuit, or any group of circuits, on the Lutron System. What happens when you press a button can be made to change, depending on the time of day or on specific days, if required, or can simply set a group of lights to a specific level. Hidden features can be added also, which can be triggered by holding buttons for specific time lengths or quickly double tapping buttons.
Timeclocks can be set up to control functions that happen every day, to happen automatically. For example, your outside lights can be programmed so that they relate to sunset and sunrise times(on at Sunset and off at Sunrise). The system recalculates the sunrise and sunset times every day, based on your location, so that your timer doesn't need to be changed throughout the year - unlike a manual timer.
Items such as Water features can be programmed to start at fixed times and also can be conditional of you being at home if required.
The possibilities, due to the flexibility of the programming environment, are endless.
Our approach is simplicity. We make layouts and functions of the buttons consistent throughout the property. This makes it extremely easy to remember what happens in each room, the button engraving does assist with this. However, being able to walk into a room and just click the right button without thinking is better. Whilst we are engineering based, we understand how to build systems for non technical people.
