Intelligent Lighting – How It Can Reduce Energy Bills

09 May 2022 Intelligent Lighting

The cost of running a home has risen over recent months, making it harder for many households to make ends meet. The information below could be helpful when reducing energy bills is a big concern.

Intelligent lighting control – the way forward


Well-designed, intelligent lighting control could reduce your electricity bill by 10%. Based on the assumption that 15% of your energy bill goes towards lighting, that is. With so many options now available, finding the right solution is more accessible, with companies like Lutron and Creston being at the forefront of intelligent lighting innovation.

Installation is straightforward because there’s no wiring involved. You can also choose how to operate your system, whether hosted on the cloud or Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Smart lighting responds to motion or voice too. Some systems integrate with Siri, Alexa or Hey Google. The choice is yours to make.

What is Lutron intelligent lighting?


Lutron intelligent lighting systems work with natural light that enters a space. It uses dimmers and window shades to create the perfect living environment. Using two light sources saves energy use whilst benefiting from as much natural light as possible.

Today, the combination of blinds, curtains, natural light and intelligent lighting control forms the basis of Lutron systems. In addition, the feelgood factor is making its mark in the domestic home and commercial properties with the energy-saving benefit.

Smart dimmer control


Intelligent dimmer control offers the option to adjust lighting whenever you want or need to. Smart light control solutions let you set the mood in a room and can enhance the overall feel of a space.

Moreover, smart dimmer control can save you money. Dimming lights means you use less energy, up to 50% less energy even when dimmed slightly. Hence, a lower monthly energy bill and Lutron intelligent lighting provide you with the perfect solution. 

Smart shading – best of both worlds


Smart shading is an excellent way of infusing a space with natural light at the best times of the day. Lutron intelligent lighting combines smart blinds and shades with smart lighting. In short, when you don’t need to switch on the lights, you don’t have to!

Not only is it an excellent energy-saving solution, but natural light is known to be better for your happiness and well-being. In addition, smart shading and intelligent lighting control can also improve productivity when working from home or in an office environment.

The range of Lutron blinds and roller blinds includes styling Venetian blinds and wireless roller blinds, to name but two. Whatever style you select can help maximise or minimise the amount of natural light entering a space. The bonus is that many blinds have thermal insulation, which also helps reduce energy usage.

Remotely controlling intelligent lighting solutions

Being able to control intelligent lighting remotely gives you peace of mind. You can turn the lights on when you want and off when you don’t! It is energy-saving, thus reducing your bills whilst adding a level of security to a home or place of business.

Lutron intelligent lighting comes with remote management. You control the system from wherever you are using a smartphone app. It’s that simple.

Security is also a significant factor, and the unit downloads updates automatically. Another feature is that you can connect the unit to third-party integration partners.

Backing up an entire HomeWork system is also taken care of. In short, you can restore it to personal settings and programs should there ever be a failure or accident.
