There are a variety of reasons you may want to upgrade your lighting solutions, whether it’s saving money by installing LED fixtures or opting for more efficient control solutions—whether its simple dimmers on the wall or full centralized control. All retrofit jobs require thorough planning and design on behalf of our technicians.
We take into account your goals, needs and budget to decide the fixtures and wiring that need to be replaced. We use Crestron RF devices to create retrofit solutions to replace or expand existing systems. With versatile products and designs, it’s easy to accommodate changes or additions.
Whether you’re a homeowner, architect, or builder, we work with Creston to design one-of-a-kind lighting control solutions for your space. An integrated lighting control design must take into account your preferred control solutions, static and dynamic elements (windows, drapes, etc.), cabling infrastructure and lighting fixtures.
Your final documentation should show each lighting fixture in your home, how it connects back to your central Crestron control station, and then to each individual control device—including dimmers, switchers and touchpads. The design should also differentiate the wiring being used, for example between AC or Crestron wiring.
Replacing incandescent lights with LED lights can help reduce energy bills and add versatility to your home’s lighting design. This is because LED lights are more durable, require less maintenance, and don’t require as much electricity to function.
With a lighting design that ensures you’re using the right fixture for each area in your home, you could save up to 15% on electricity bills. LED lights are also easier to incorporate into your centralized control systems. We can create a design to manage the lights’ color temperature, rendering and intensity.
For some installations, especially those involving retrofit systems, wireless lighting control solutions may be the best option. This is because they don’t require an extensive wiring installation. Wireless lighting systems can be a part of your centralized design (with wireless components included in the installation plan) or be standalone.
Our expert team can create a design to optimize your Wi-Fi network with gateways and expanders in place to communicate with wireless switches, dimmers, and control devices. We ensure that all wireless components are communicating efficiently to offer reliable control throughout your home.
