HomeWorks QS is designed to work beautifully with LED

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.

Pre-programmed scenes

In order to vary the focal point and mood in a room you need multiple circuits. With conventional controls you end up with a large grid of knobs and switches that you manipulate each time you want to recreate a scene. Lutron HomeWorks QS does this all for you with programmed scenes that set each individual circuit to a specific light level. A single press brings up your “cooking” scene, your “dining” scene, your “party” scene etc. Mood lighting and scenes bring out the beauty of your lighting at a single button press.

HomeWorks QS integrates with other smart home systems

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 QS blinds are best in class

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.
