Lutron RadioRA 3 Is a Game Changer in Lighting Control
Lutron is the world leader in lighting control solutions in both residential and commercial markets. Unlike other companies constantly churning out new products every year, Lutron tends to take more time introducing new technology and products.
Does that mean Lutron isn't innovative? The company that invented the modern solid-state dimmer doesn't rest on its laurels. But it also recognizes that people expect lights to just work. No one needs fancy lighting scenes that don't work consistently or light switches that take a second to turn on a light. Lutron is all about reliable, simple, fast operation. When you invest in a lighting control system for your Woodstock, GA home, you’re going to have it for years, and it has to work all the time.
Indeed, the company’s popular RadioRA 2 system was around for many years. A system that could manage medium to very large homes, it was a popular and rock-solid solution. But now there’s a new, upgraded system, Lutron RadioRA 3. Why is it a big deal to Lutron dealers and technology integrators like GHT Group? Find out more by reading below.

You’ll Never Want to Return to Regular Lighting
Lighting control is one of the most popular smart home accouterments, and for very good reasons. But those reasons will vary greatly depending upon people’s needs and motivations. For some, it’s the convenience of having more than one way to control lights, like from a smartphone or through a voice assistant. For others, a schedule or sensor that turns off lights brings efficiency and energy savings.
Perhaps the best reason for going with a whole-home lighting control system – and not just one room or a few lights – is all of the above. Each reason is justification enough for lighting control for a Milton, GA home, but it becomes so easy to rationalize when putting them all together. See what we mean below!

And while you might think that it sounds more complicated to do your entire house, you might be surprised to learn that lighting control systems – like those from Lutron – are adaptable for retrofit installation as well as for new construction and major remodels.

Maximize Productivity and Comfort with the Right Illumination
Telecommuting is nothing new, as the computer and high-speed internet made it a relatively painless proposition over the past two decades. In the past ten years or so, the maturing of cloud application and communication platforms made it even easier to work from home, and many employers encouraged and supported it on a part-time basis.
Of course, we don't have to mention here how the COVID-19 crisis has pushed working from home into hyper-speed overdrive. After all, before this pandemic, when did you ever see Saturday Night Live skits about Zoom meetings? While working from home is not without its many challenges, many think that companies large and small will be seriously rethinking their workforces, with telecommuting becoming far more prevalent for many information workers.
So, what do you need to work from home effectively? Besides the things you might think about – a distraction-free space, comfortable and ergonomic furniture, and a good equipment setup – have you thought about the lighting? Good lighting makes for a pleasant space to work, while poor lighting can lead to fatigue and a lack of productivity, and you may not even know why. Here are three tips that residential lighting design experts recommend to ensure your Alpharetta, GA home office is a happy and productive workplace.
