Lighting control is becoming more and more popular in today’s society. Elite Sound and Cinema has been integrating lighting control in homes as small as 2000 square feet. Lighting control simplifies your lifestyle and increases security. Picture this: Your wife and kids come home at the end of the day to find the front door kicked-in! Is the intruder still inside? Fortunately, you have a Lutron system installed. Your wife pushes the security button on the Lutron garage-door opener. All the lights flash in your home, the alarm is triggered, and the security company is called — all with the push of a button!
Lighting control also provides other benefits: You can get rid of those unsightly wall switches. You can turn out all the lights in your home with the push of a button. You can even change the mood of your lighting with single button. It’s not just for the rich any longer. You can have a lighting control system installed for as low as $3000.
Joel and Ruth Spira founded Lutron Electronics Company, Inc. in 1961. Lutron’s first product was called a “dimmer switch.” This product represented the world’s first solid-state electronic device used to dim lights in a home, replacing bulky rheostats and autotransformers that were inefficient and unattractive. Although Lutron has grown substantially over the past several decades, the company still maintains the feel and personal closeness of a smaller firm, and to this day still operates under the guidance of the company’s 5 Principles. Today, over 40 years later, Lutron is still devoted to controlling lighting. Their focus on product innovations, technology, quality, and customer service has made them the undisputed worldwide leader in the field of lighting control. They offer more than 10,000 products to satisfy virtually any residential or commercial demands. Lutron products adjust the intensity of virtually every kind of light, and they remain to this day the only company that provides an integrated solution for controlling both natural daylight as well as electrical lighting.
