5 Ways to Access & Control Your Lutron Smart Lighting System
Because Automated Lighting & Shading Should Be Convenient to Use
Motorized shades and smart lights are some of the most exciting home innovations in recent years. Across your entire South Florida house, you can modify the appearance of your lights, turn them all off, and lower the shades simultaneously.
But while smart technology should feel magical, it should also be easy and intuitive to use. If you’re preparing the house for visitors, you might not want to run back to the kitchen to grab your phone—just to adjust the lights. And if it’s late at night, you may not want to stare at a bright screen to lower the shades.
Smartphone control is incredibly handy, but it’s not the only way to use your Lutron smart lighting control system. Read on to learn about the five ways you can access Lutron smart lighting and get inspired for your Palm Beach home.

On the Lutron App
Whether you’re using the Lutron app on your phone or tablet, you’ll swipe through each room to quickly see how many lights are on, how many shades are open, and more. Its icons let you easily find the light you’re looking for by tapping the ‘Chandelier’ icon or ‘Table Lamp.’ From there, you can customize the color of your lightbulbs, slide the brightness up or down, and save favorite settings.
Best of all, you don’t have to be home on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to use the Lutron app. You can control your house’s lighting from anywhere in the world!
Custom Wall Keypads
Sometimes a light switch is the most natural way to control lights. Lutron offers an all-new approach to the standard wall switch. Its sleek, elegant keypads activate custom lighting scenes like ‘Morning’ and ‘Night’ that transform your home’s atmosphere instantly.
Imagine pressing a button by the door labeled ‘Away’ that will shut off every light while closing the shades. Luton’s smart keypads can also incorporate temperature control and other smart technologies so that you can ready your house in seconds.
Your Favorite Voice Assistant
Why not let your friendly voice assistant handle the lights and shades? Lutron integrates with popular voice assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Josh.ai, a relative newcomer in the voice control world. Josh.ai was built specifically for smart home control, and Lutron offers Josh.ai Ready Wallplates that merge tactile buttons with a far-reaching microphone.
Touch Screen Control Panel
Many homeowners find it helpful to use a dedicated control panel for Lutron smart lighting. A control screen may be mounted on a wall or tabletop to display only your Lutron home interface and not a clutter of other apps. You’ll always know where the touch screen is and won’t have to go looking for your personal device whenever you want to access the system.
Automated by Schedule
Do you like to open the same drapes and shades every morning? Want your lights to automatically turn on around sunset, and set to a warm appearance? We can program your lights and shades to automatically activate and adjust according to a daily schedule. You won’t have to do a thing—it will happen automatically!
Geofencing can also trigger automated lighting scenes. For instance, your system will know that you like entryway lights to turn off once you’ve left the house. As you close the door, lights will shut off behind you. No action necessary!
