Indoor Lighting: Ditch the switches and go remote with Lutron's HomeWorks. HomeWorks is a residential all-lights control system, making every light of a house - interior and exterior - operable by remote control. It also controls draperies and shades.The system controls lights room by room or simultaneously. HomeWorks can be activated from remote locations, such as the car, the office, the mall, or even while vacationing. It links seamlessly to most home-security systems and various smart-home setups.

Along with remote controls, there are both tabletop and wall-mounted controls available. HomeWorks is offered in three variants, the 4 Series, the 8 Series, and the Wireless Series. The 4 Series is the most economical, and the 8 Series is la crème de la crème, featuring the widest selection of control styles. The 8 Series is compatible as-is with the Wireless Series. These systems are customizable to fit homeowners' exacting specifications. No two are exactly identical in configuration.

This truly is a smart system, as it adapts automatically to sunrise changes. The brightness of the lighting can be synchronized to match a daily routine. Lights in rooms can be programmed to go from dim to midlevel to intense brightness automatically. Shades and draperies operate autonomously too. HomeWorks also can be set to work upon returning home, leaving home and turning off all lights at night with the push of a button. Reprogramming or revising preset commands is simple too.

Lutron makes systems for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. Wouldn't it be great if we all could go from dim to midlevel to intense brightness?
