How Ketra Lighting Makes Color Come Alive
Tunable lighting is one of the newest and best features of lighting control. By varying color and intensity at your will, tunable lighting helps set a mood, energize us, and relax us in subtle yet significant ways. Lutron's Ketra lighting is the best tunable lighting system on the market, in large part due to relentless innovation and refinement.
We last wrote about the Ketra difference in warm dimming, a key feature of tunable lighting that creates the kind of lighting ambiance in your home that you tend to see in the best photography. But there’s more to Ketra. Just like a great photographer, Ketra lighting unlocks the vibrancy of colors in your Brookhaven, GA home.

Tunable Lighting Is Not All the Same
At this point, you may have heard of tunable lighting. We've written a bit about it on these very pages. And if you have looked at LED lighting fixtures and bulbs lately, you might notice that many are incorporating color-changing capabilities that enable the "tuning" of white light.
To review (don't worry, there's no test at the end), tunable lighting is the ability of artificial light to change its intensity and hue to mimic how sunlight varies throughout the day. Why is this important? Light affects us in subtle ways, and our bodies respond to the rhythms of natural light. The ability to change the color temperature of white light is a recent feature of LED lighting technology.
Quite a few competitors have emerged in tunable lighting. But you should know that not all tunable lighting is the same. Let’s explore one of the most highly touted features of tunable lighting – warm dimming, and how Ketra, a pioneer in this space, does it better. Read on to learn about how Ketra lighting is different and what it can do in your Buckhead, GA home.

How Tunable Lighting Creates the Perfect Illumination for Every Activity
Several months ago, we introduced the concept of “human-centric lighting.” Considering lighting was invented by humans for humans, you might think the term is a bit of a misnomer. But if you’ve worked in a large office with cold, bright, fluorescent lights, you would know that those lights were designed to get work done, but not necessarily to please humans. To be fair, fluorescent lighting is highly energy-efficient and inexpensive, which is why it is widely used in commercial environments.
At home, however, we get to control our environment. And thanks to LED lighting technology, we don’t have to use fluorescent lighting for efficiency at home. LED lighting has tremendous advantages over older incandescent and fluorescent technology, being far more energy-efficient and longer-lasting than both.
The latest LED lighting has another feature that no other lighting technology can touch – the ability to change color temperature. Ketra lighting, now part of Lutron, one of the leading companies in lighting, was a pioneer in tunable LED lighting. Read on to see how you could transform the feel of your Atlanta, GA home with Ketra tunable lighting solutions.

How Good Lighting Design Can Cure Lighting Ills
You may not think about lighting until there's something wrong with it. If your kitchen is dimly lit, it doesn't make it a great place for food preparation. If you struggle to read a magazine in your family room because either the nearby lamp isn't right or the overhead lights add too much glare, you'll notice that also. If your light color temperature is "cool" and reminds you of fluorescents, chances are you will be bothered by it.
All of these things are examples of lighting not being up for the task at hand, whether it’s working, relaxing, cooking, reading, or trying to find your way down a dark hallway. Good residential lighting design is part art and part science, and when done correctly, your Atlanta, GA home will shine – pardon the pun.
Keep reading below for four deadly sins of home lighting and how you can correct them.
