Lighting + Shade Control

Instantly transform your home with automated shades and lights that adjust hands-free to the perfect glow for every hour and occasion.

Automated Lighting

Gone are the days of long banks of switches taking up valuable wall space and causing visual clutter! Lutron’s automated lighting is designed clean and minimalistic. Controllable dimmers and switches can turn on or off your entire home with one touch, voice command, or smart phone app control. Automated lighting also gives you the ability to program the quality and quantity of light and, combined with occupancy sensors and automated shades, allows you to balance light to naturally heat or cool your rooms, saving energy in your home.
