Are you ready to take your home to the next level…in control, convenience, seamless integration, and even energy efficiency? You can customize the control of comfort features throughout your home with the installation of a smart panel. At Rangel Electric, we are a certified dealer and installer for Lutron smart panel systems and our professionals will help you custom design your smart panel to fit your home and lifestyle.
How does it work? A smart panel integrates all of your systems into a single control system. At it’s simplest, it can turn everything on and off from one place, but the sophisticated Lutron system can do so much more.
What systems can be integrated into the smart panel? Almost all of your electrical systems can be integrated into your smart panel, including audiovisual, interior and exterior lighting, thermostat, motorized window coverings, appliances, security, and even your gas fireplace.
What can be controlled?
The possibilities for customization are endless. Every system can be preprogrammed and integrated to create “scenes,” activated by a single button so that all of the systems adjust together for a particular activity or time of day. In the living room, you can preset a button for “evening,” and lights and shades will adjust accordingly and the fireplace will ignite, creating the perfect ambiance for relaxing before dinner. In your bedroom, you can awaken slowly by using the button you’ve set for “morning,” that raises your blinds just a bit, turns on your TV to the morning news, and sets the heater at a warmer temperature before you get out of bed. At night, you can choose “reading” and the lights will change to your preset level. Before you go to sleep, you can choose “all off,” that will turn off the TV, lights, fireplace – whatever you’ve programed.
How is it energy efficient? By controlling the temperature and lighting in your home by need and time and closing shades when the sun is the brightest you can create a more energy efficient home. You won’t need to run the air conditioner when you are not there. You can program all of these systems to turn on at a specified time each day or even turn them on remotely when you are on your way home. You can also program lights to be sensor controlled to automatically go on and off as you come and go. Another option will turn off standby power to appliances when not in use. Ultimately, the “energy” button will integrate all of your energy choices (dim lights, adjust heating/cooling, lower shades, etc.) with one touch. Fifteen different keypad configurations allow for ample choices for customization.
Is it difficult to operate? As certified dealers and installers, the professionals at Rangel will help you to design your Lutron smart panel system and program each area to your preferences. We can even integrate your system with your personal smart technology including smartphones, tablets, etc. to be able to check the status of your systems when you are away from home. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority and we will ensure that you understand and know how to use your system to your comfort level.
Will it match my décor? The smart panel can be a benefit to your decorating by reducing the wall clutter of multiple keypads, switches and outlets. But even more impressive, the Lutron smart panel comes in an array of colors, finishes and styles. In addition to a range of neutrals, you can also choose from colors including teal, terracotta, hot, merlot, and plum. Also available are a selection of metal finishes including brass, chrome, antique bronze and more. Clear and light green glass are even options; rounded or squared edges and keys. Tailoring your smart panel to blend into your style needn’t be a concern.
