Controlling LED – a HomeWorks QS case study
A modern family house with integrated HomeWorks QS and Control4 systemsView case study
Lutron HomeWorks QS is the latest version of Lutron’s flagship home lighting control system. HomeWorks QS is a whole house lighting control system offering control of internal & external lighting and natural daylight with ultra-quiet electric blinds and curtains. Lutron lighting control is an industry leader. Lutron invented the category in the early 1960s and now offers a range of wired and wireless lighting control solutions.
HomeWorks QS saves energy, integrates with security systems to give you extra peace of mind and complements great lighting beautifully. Best of all it’s wonderfully easy-to-use. If you’ve ever been put off the idea of lighting control by the thought it’s for geeks and tech-fiends only, one look at the simple, backlit and engraved keypads should reassure you. This is great lighting made simple with great control. Brilliant Lighting is an authorised Lutron HomeWorks Diamond dealer.
Simple to use doesn’t mean basic. HomeWorks QS was a total redesign to address the challenges of the LED era. It offers a full range of dimming protocols making dimming LEDs smooth and reliable. We use DALI, 0-10v dimming, mains leading edge, mains trailing edge or DMX as appropriate.
Whilst this sounds complicated, it’s technology that’s hidden from the end user. All you see is smooth, reliable dimming with none of the flicker or odd behaviour you may have encountered trying to dim LED conventionally. Lutron lighting control works beautifully with LED lighting.
Lutron HomeWorks QS integrates with other residential technologies to create a complete smart home. HomeWorks QS can be used to control heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems (HVAC) and can be integrated into wider home systems like Crestron, Control4, AMX and Savant alongside Audo/Video, Heating and Security sytems.
The Lutron Connect app is available for both iOS and Android putting system control on your iPhone, iPad or Android tablet or phone. Lutron Connect is also available for the Apple Watch.
Lutron HomeWorks QS is also now controllable with Alexa, Google Home and Siri which means you can now control your lighting with your voice.
Lutron HomeWorks QS control extends out of lighting. Lutron’s blinds are astonishing: quiet, discreet, flexible. We’ve been working with Lutron’s blinds (and powered curtain tracks) since 2014. They’ve been a major focus area for Lutron and we’ve seen a constant flow of improvements and extensions to the offering since then.
Lutron blinds can be controlled from the same simple keypads that control your lighting; it’s wonderfully discreet.
