Lighting Control? No Brainer

Here’s what we don’t understand. We live in a world where we strive to control everything as simply as we can, but most of us are still okay controlling the lights in our homes the “old-school” way. Most of our clients don’t have a real understanding how lighting control can simplify their lives, but now that they have it, they can’t imagine living without.

Here are three reasons why you should consider lighting control.

Two words. Complete Control.

A top of the line home will typically have a lighting package that consist of the original wiring, receptacles, switches, panels, breakers, etc, all in a cost range of $30k to $50k. That’ll buy you the confusing banks of light switches around the house. You know, the six switches that seem to operate nothing. “Oops, left the outdoor sconces on all day!

A Lutron lighting control system, for a system like this, would cost you less than 10% of the total original lighting cost. Okay – so here is the confusion. You spent a pretty penny to have this all installed, but won’t spend the extra 10% to give yourself complete control of it? Take our word for it, we are lighting control experts in Bluffton, Hilton Head, and Palmetto Bluff – you save with lighting control.

Saving Energy Will Save You Money

A Lutron Radio Ra2, or Homeworks lighting control system, can reduce energy use by 40%. So, the 10% we didn’t spend on the lighting control system, is also the only part of the system that pays itself back in energy savings.


It’s just cool! You can set timers using an astronomical clock. You can turn on any lighting configuration you choose to with any of your own portable devices; iPads, Macs, PCs, Android, and so forth. Not being able to control the stuff you already have, for a fraction of the cost of the unit, just doesn’t make sense.

Here at AIC, we want our clients to have the best of the best. If you’re in the area – again that’s Bluffton, Hilton Head, and Palmetto Bluff – come check out our showroom. We’ll show you how easy it is to have complete control over all your home technology.
