Why? The reason is straightforward: The benefits in convenience, luxury, safety, and energy efficiency multiply when you can manage your entire home’s lighting intelligently. 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.
