3 Ways You Can Save Energy with Lutron Lighting Control

Go Green, and Save Money Too

3 Ways You Can Save Energy with Lutron Lighting Control

One of the greatest benefits of smart technology is the capabilities it gives us to do things easily that were once both hard and expensive. Lighting control is one smart technology that can benefit any home. And while we’ve talked extensively about the many aesthetic, safety, and other benefits of lighting control, we want to swing back to a core one – efficiency.

Lighting control is one of the simplest, most straightforward ways to save energy. And Lutron lighting control is one of the easiest ways to corral, command, control, and cajole your Atlanta home's lighting into doing your bidding. Read on for three simple (did we already say simple?) ways that Lutron helps you save the environment and pad your wallet, too.

Using Sensors

Lutron offers a range of sensors for managing interior lighting. If you might think this sounds like something from a commercial setting, you'd be right. Lutron makes sensors that can be separately installed or integrated into light switches to help commercial environments manage lighting and energy. In your home, Lutron motion sensors can detect when people are in a room. You can have lights turn on when it's occupied and turn off after a specified time when there is no activity. These sensors are perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, and other high-use areas where people may forget to turn off the light. We already know that your kids never think about turning lights off.

Using Schedules

Maybe you want lights on in a given room or area for a specified time. Lutron lighting control makes schedules simple. Do you want your outside lights on at dusk and off at dawn? Just schedule it once via the Lutron app on your smart device. You can also add offsets to that, such as turning lights on 10 minutes after dusk. That same type of schedule can work for any lighting that is controlled by a Lutron system.

Dim, Dim, Dim and Sum Up the Savings

Most homes tend to have bright lighting in the main areas. Most of the time, you don't need the full brightness of the light for the activity at hand. Installing dimmers is an easy way to save energy by having more precise control over your lighting output. Plus, dimmers help set a better ambiance for relaxing, dining, watching TV, and reading. Your lighting fixtures will last longer, too, when dimmed often. Just dimming your lights by 25% can save most of that in energy. And with Lutron's wireless ClearConnect technology, a wide variety of keypad and dimmer controls can be installed where you want them. You might be surprised how easy it is to retrofit Lutron lighting control into an existing home with minimal wiring.
