Why Builders, Architects, and Homeowners Are Integrating Smart Lighting Systems


Smart Lighting Creates a Beautiful and Healthy Environment

People were undoubtedly amazed when the first modern light switch was invented in the 1880s. About 75 years later, Lutron, the world leader in lighting control, came out with the first dimmer switch. Today, our lighting transforms throughout the day based on available daylight and all we have to do is sit back and watch.

Smart lighting is one of the up-and-coming markets that is growing exponentially. From 2020 to 2030, the global smart lighting market is expected to quadruple, from about $11 billion to $44 billion.

Let's look at how smart lighting control is transforming homes in Crystal Bay, NV.
