Lutron founder Joel Spira invented the solid state light dimmer so it’s no surprise that Lutron is our preferred supplier here at Synergy Multimedia and Motion Shading for home automation products, whether it be controlling the light that comes from internal sources such as light bulbs or external sources such as the sun. We are one of the Southeast’s largest and most experienced Lutron dealers and we are fully certified for Homeworks, RadioRa2, the new Caseta system, the entire line of shading products and we are even Georgia’s exclusive supplier of the Coulisse European designer fabric collection.
System Overview – Lutron Caseta
Caseta is Lutron’s newest automation system and is aimed squarely at smaller lighting control and hvac deployments (those of 50 devices or less and 30′ radius from the controller). With Caseta, we are able to offer a quality, dependable lighting system for less than half of in the past, yet will full control over dimmers, switched loads, lamps, window shades and thermostats. Imagine all of this, fully programmable by the end user on your choice of iOS or Android devices. Don’t even think about those cheap systems sold by the big box stores – they don’t hold a candle to the reliability or the proven dimming capability of difficult loads such as CFL’s or LED’s. With our significant experience, we can help you design a Caseta system for your small residence that will make you feel like you are living in a fully automated mansion!
System Overview – Lutron RadioRa2
RadioRa2 is a proven whole-home lighting, shading and thermostat control system for mid to larger homes. There are many advantages of this system over the entry level Caseta system, but the main ones have to do with capacity and choice. RadioRa2 is expandable for up to 200 devices and the wireless signals can be repeated for reaching all the devices within larger residences. Plus, not only can you control dimmers, switches, lamps, shades and thermostats as with Caseta, but you can also add fan speed controls, occupancy/vacancy sensors, hidden 6-zone dimming panels, higher capacity dimmers, specialty switches, engraved and backlit custom programmed keypads, and much more. Moreover, the programming is far more sophisticated and allows for whole home scenes, security modes, control via 3rd party automation systems like our own Crestron systems. Lastly, and for some most importantly, we offer devices in over 20 designer friendly colors including metals and glass!
System Overview – Lutron Homeworks QS
Homeworks QS is the premium lighting control system from Lutron and is without peer in the industry. The major advantage of HWQS is the ability to centralize your lighting controls for the most customized, beautiful look completely integrated into your décor. Have you ever wondered how you could get rid of those ugly 5-gang banks of switches? HWQS is the answer. With dimming panels centrally located in utility closets, we can control your lights with single-gang, custom engraved keypads available in 20+ different colors and you’ll never have to wonder what the 4th switch over does again. System capacity is no match for even the largest residence and the programming is over the top as to how we can control your lights, adding variables and conditional logic to the mix, which allows features such as turning on your master bathroom lights to different levels upon the sensing of motion depending if it is daytime, before bedtime or after bedtime (you wouldn’t want your bathroom lights automatically turning on to 100% at 3am would you?). Simply put, if you have a very large residence or you would like all of your devices hidden in a closet or you desire maximum control over your system, HWQS is the perfect system for you.
