Lutron Radio RA 2 is a great way to add Elegant Lighting Controls to any Project
Link Your House is one of the first companies to control whole house which has LED Lighting throughout with the Radio RA 2 Dimmers.
RadioRA 2 is a wireless total home control system. This energy-saving system
gives you the ability to adjust the amount of daylight and electric light (using
light controls and automated shades) as well as temperature in a single room or
throughout your whole home. The system also turns off standby power to small
appliances when they’re not in use.
Another great option for Lighting is the Legrand RF Solution
Legrand RF Lighting Controls (RFLC) make perfect lighting so intuitive that it seems to read your mind. At the touch of a button, or a tap to your smartphone, you can command any lighting design – whether it’s for an intimate group of lights, multiple lights in a larger area, or a diverse array of lights throughout your home. Thanks to RFLC, setting the perfect lighting scene in a room, a group of rooms, or an entire house has never been this easy and convenient.
The advantage of controls that remember your favorite scenes.
RF Lighting Controls use two-way radio-frequency (RF) transmission to communicate with one another. With simple, effective electronic intelligence built into every device, there’s no need for a costly central control system. And because the controls don’t need to be connected with wiring, installation is just like that of traditional switches and dimmers: quick and economical. This approach makes RF Lighting Controls extremely versatile and easily configurable to match your needs and preferences. An RFLC control can be as simple as dimming a dining room chandelier from two or three locations, or as sophisticated as operating many lights throughout your home from your bedside table. And that’s just the beginning of what RFLC can do!
Make it look like you’re home – even when you’re not.
UPB Lighting Control Solutions-New Construction and Retrofit
With this type of lighting controller, there is no need for an extra wire for control or having a proprietary keypad. Since these switches communicate over the high-voltage, a certified electrician can install them in a new construction job abd have them work right away. These switches look like standard decora switches and come in six colors: white, almond, ivory, brown, black and grey to match practically any décor. Extra locations can be provided in new construction jobs to allow for scene controllers to control multiple lights and/or rooms from one location.
With the addition of other conrtol options, outside lighting, waterfalls, fountains, and almost anything that runs with standard power can be controlled from any location in the house. In addition, with a home automation system, we can have other things such as music and other forms of entertainment can be triggered from a single switch. By adding a security system, such as an HAI unit, we can have lights turn on when you disarm the security system. On the same note, when you arm the system we can turn off all interiors lights and, depending on the time of day, we can turn on the exterior lights when you leave and turn them off at a certain time.
With this technology, you can also have a centralized lighting system that will allow you to have multiple switches located in one location out of the way and only have one switch or scene controller in each room of the house. With this lighting option, as with any controlled lighting, we can control them in areas like a media room or home theater so that the light would be controlled as a part of you turning on the TV or starting a movie.
For those who have vacation homes, you can replace every switch in your home with this controlled lighting option and be able to make sure all the lights and other equipment are off to make sure that your energy consumption is minimal when you are away. Link Your House has had much success with these switches and have had little to no problems with the local control of lighting, so you will have the reliability of standard lighting with the peace of mind that you are saving money.
Dimmable lighting is really popular with green living communities because you can reduce your carbon footprint just by dimming the lights and using less energy, as well as being able to control and make sure lights are off when you are away. When we program the lighting in any house, we set the maximum to 90% of the power consumption which means that you are saving 10% of your energy which can add up quickly in large homes.
