Lighting Control & Motorized Shades Lutron Radio Ra2 Lutron HomeworksImagine waking up in the morning to the sound of your favorite song, as your bedroom lights slowly brighten and your motorized window treatments soundlessly raise to showcase your view of the outdoors. There is no better way to start your day.

At Barrett’s Technology Solutions, we strongly believe your Chicagoland home’s smart lighting control and automated shades should enhance your lifestyle – from the moment you begin your day to the moment you fall asleep at night. We reflect that passionate belief through our customized technology solutions for homeowners in Naperville, Hinsdale, and throughout the greater Chicago area.

Showcase Your Home’s Best Features

Achieving aesthetic perfection inside your home should not depend on the time of day or the level of natural light that is or isn’t flowing into a room. A smart Lutron lighting solution can help remove those variables. Throughout your home, you might feature sconces, architectural lights, pendants, and more to highlight some of the house’s best interior characteristics. After all, artwork and stunning architectural features are meant to be on display. The environment should be perfect to appreciate their beauty.

But standard lighting is fixed and rigid. If you leave the shades raised, an increased amount of natural light entering your space can offset your showcased design. On the other hand, a smart Lutron shading and lighting solution is dynamic – it automatically adjusts to ever-changing daytime sunlight levels so that your home always appears its best.

When direct sunlight hits your windows, your automated blinds instantly will lower as your system automatically adjusts brightness to accommodate for the updated sunlight levels. Not only will your valuables remain secure from long-term exposure to harmful UV rays, but you will always be able to enjoy the perfect lighting levels in your home.

Control Customized to Your Lifestyle

As you arrive home from an evening gala or concert, the switch to illuminate the path inside may not be immediately within reach. What if you could tap a button on a smartphone application and watch as pathway lights instantly brighten to guide you from your driveway to your front door? Interior lights will even turn on to lead you to your kitchen for an evening snack.

Or, what if you could simply lay in bed at night and press a button on a customized in-wall keypad that will turn off every light in your house and lower your automated shades to protect from any potential intruder? You’ll never have to find your way back to bed in the dark again.

Tailoring your smart lighting to your lifestyle doesn’t stop at the on/off function. You can customize one-touch lighting scenes for any occasion. Dim the brightness to the perfect conversational level for an elegant dinner party with friends and family, just by selecting your preset scene. Or, ready your custom media room for movie-watching with just the press of a button.

Regardless of how you want to control your lighting system or motorized blinds, our team at Barrett’s can deliver a solution customized to your preferences. Among the many ways you can control your smart lighting and shading system are:

  • In-wall keypads: Conveniently placed throughout your home, activate a custom lighting and shading scene or lower a room’s blinds with just the press of a button. Select a style or finish that perfectly complements each room’s interior design.
  • Touchscreen panels: Seamlessly integrate touchscreen interfaces that can manage your entire home’s lighting and shading systems. Flush-mount them to your walls or add them to a tabletop for easy access. With just the tap of your screen, dim the lights, roll up your automated shades, or even manage other components of your home automation system.
  • Mobile application: Yes, you can manage every component of your home lighting or shading system from anywhere in the world through a downloaded app on your smartphone or tablet. From the app, adjust the bedroom brightness as you lay in bed or activate a “occupancy” setting while you are out of town that simulates your daily typical lighting and shading usage.

Of course, a smart system shouldn’t mean you are limited to one method for managing it. Our customized solutions include a variety of control methods so that you can always manage your technology in a way you find convenient.
