Andrew Dickinson of Bernard Dickinson talks us through the many benefits of Lutron lighting and shade solutions to enhance your home

One of the most exciting areas of my work is providing intelligent lighting and shade solutions that make your life easier and your home work harder. From opening the blinds and softly lighting the bedroom when you wake to lighting your way to the kitchen when you arrive home, integrated lighting and shade technology can enhance your home life in so many ways. No more arriving back to a dark house or drawing all the curtains every evening.

The right lighting and shade gives you the perfect ambience in your home day or night, and for this we turn to the world-leaders in this technology, Lutron. Bernard Dickinson have been working with Lutron (www.lutron.com) for almost two decades. Instead of developing their technology and trying to shape our homes to suit, Lutron starts with user experience first and foremost. Today’s clients demand technology that make these operations easier, more efficient and more effective, and that is exactly what we provide.

Whether it’s just a single room, multiple spaces or a whole home, you can control the light, its intensity and shade levels using your choice of keypads, remote controls, smart phones, tablets and voice commands, not to mention setting an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment of shades.

We pre-programme your system so you can set the scene for whatever you are doing with ease. Transform your room with the perfect lighting for a party by pressing a single button engraved ‘entertaining’ or dim the lights and close out the world for a warm and cosy night in. Save energy and time by ensuring every light is put out with one touch.

Utilise a whole-home shading system for simultaneous control of all shades. By setting a predetermined scene for ‘away’, simply select this option when leaving to close all shades and restrict the view inside your home. A ‘mockupancy’ system adjusts lights, blinds and plays music at intervals to create the illusion of occupancy.

As we become more conscious of our footprint on this planet, making the most of daylight in our homes simply makes sense. Shading systems provide precision control of daylight, and utilising daylight to its fullest reduces our need for electric light and saves energy. We can deflect or harness solar heat to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Shading systems are key to protecting furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces from the sun’s damaging UV rays. They also diffuse light and prevent glare from distorting computers or television screens. Enjoy your entertainment and your whole home in its best light all year round.
