Start here to learn everything about Lutron Lighting.

At Bravo AV, we believe lighting control should extend far beyond just a manual on/off switch. Your home’s lighting system should be an asset – featuring not only convenient, efficient control but also built-in integration for custom scene creation dedicated toward enhancing your lifestyle. What if, with just the tap of a screen on your iPhone, you could dim every light in your dining room to the perfect level for dinner with the family? Or, as you pull into your driveway at night after work, what if pathway and hallway lights automatically turned on, welcoming you home? With a smart lighting system, that’s entirely possible. And we believe there is no better brand you can achieve this with than Lutron. Below, we explore why Lutron lighting control is the best option for smart lighting in your Somerset County home.

A History of Excellence For decades now, Lutron has been at the forefront of innovation in the lighting control industry. The privately-held company was incorporated in 1961 and to this day has remained a leader in revolutionizing the way homeowners manage their lights. Among the many achievements Lutron has accomplished:

  • Lutron was the first company to establish a rotary dimmer, still found in many homes today, and holds more than 2,700 patents worldwide. Among some of the best Lutron innovations: The first self-contained preset lighting control solution and the first and only system of dimmers and motorized shades that controls both electric light and daylight.

  • Through the brand’s renowned light-dimming features, Lutron products have saved more than 9.2 billion kWh – enough to save more than $1 billion on energy bills per year.

  • Lutron features a 24-hour technical support hotline for its products. When you invest in a Lutron lighting solution through our team at Bravo AV, you will have multiple resources ready to assist you within a moment’s notice.

Since Lutron remains privately owned, the brand is continually committed to you, the customer. It’s that pledge that has led the company through decades of innovation to enhance the way you control your home’s lights. While there are other lighting control brands now on the market, Lutron was the first to emerge and remains the industry leader. When you add a Lutron lighting solution to your home – whether it’s a new build or a retrofit – you can expect only the best performance from your brand-new lighting control technologies.

Top-Notch Performance Lutron technologies have an extensive history of high-end performance – not only due to the brand’s own innovations but also its systems’ abilities to integrate with other devices. Within a Lutron lighting control system, you can have all of your lights connected throughout your sprawling home – integrated into one solution. How does a Lutron installer accomplish this? Our team of installation experts connects your home’s lighting controls – whether they are in-wall dimmers or keypads or remotes or wireless occupancy sensors – through Lutron’s custom repeaters that use radio frequency technology to communicate. This Clear Connect RF technology operates on a quiet frequency band that is virtually free of interference, meaning your Lutron lighting system can work quickly and efficiently without competing for bandwidth on your home network. By simply adding a Lutron Connect Bridge to your setup (connecting to your Lutron system’s main repeater through an Ethernet connection), you even can control your home lighting system from anywhere in the world through the Lutron Connect mobile application. What also distinguishes Lutron is the brand’s integration ability with other smart home technologies. Not only can it integrate with Amazon Alexa for efficient voice control or with expansive home automation systems such as Savant, but it also interoperates with several of the leading LED lighting manufacturers. That way, Lutron ensures you will experience high-level integrated performance from both your control systems and your energy-efficient lights.

Lighting Control Options for Your Lifestyle As we mentioned above, a Lutron lighting system allows you to control your home’s lights any way you might find convenient. You can feature a combination of in-wall keypads and dimmers, for example, that can be manufactured in a custom design, style and finish that fits each room within your home. Or, through the Lutron Connect Bridge, you can use your smartphone or tablet to access a user-friendly interface that allows you to manage your lighting system efficiently. From this application, you can accomplish simple tasks such as dimming a room’s lights to your preferred levels. You also can create custom lighting scenes that you can access with just the tap of your screen. For example, you can create a “Dinner” scene that when activated dims the lights in your dining room, raises your Lutron motorized shades, and begins playing music from your Sonos wireless speaker system. You can create several of these lighting scenes – all that you might find convenient for your lifestyle. You can feature them on in-wall keypads that our team can add to your home, or you can access them through your mobile control application. With Lutron lighting control, the opportunities for how you manage your home’s lights are endless. Lutron goes far beyond just adding convenience to your lifestyle. It can play a crucial factor in making your home more environmentally efficient.
