But, HomeWorks isn’t just about utility. It is about creating the perfect moods and scenes to make every moment of every day perfect. By having your Lutron HomeWorks system integrated with your A/V system, It can dim the lights and open the drapes to accent a beautiful twilight vista, free from the distraction of home lighting; it can create the ideal A/V environment for listening to classical music in the parlor or thriller movie night in the family room; with the push of a button or tap of a screen it can create an environment of light, sound, vision, and security that perfectly suits your needs and any situation.

Just imagine being able to wake up to a breakfast area bathed in the warm glow of the morning sun, comfortable in knowing the shades will adjust before the sun begins to heat the space too much. Or, that if you are working late, you can call up your late arrival “scene” with pathways discretely lit to lead you securely to your front door.

What if you learn an old friend is in town for a surprise visit, but you won’t be home before they arrive? Create a welcoming scene of light and sound, providing them with an access code to enter your home and get comfortable. If you can imagine it, HomeWorks QS can make it happen.

Let's talk about your Home Automation project

Tailor The Natural Light Of Your Home With Shades And Drapes

At Citrom Home Automation (CHA), Eli Citrom, our expert Lutron Designer, has a passion for mixing natural and artificial light to create a beautiful environment inside your home, often in conjunction with your own interior designer. HomeWorks QS supports an expansive range of shade and blind window treatments that allow the creation of this artistic expression while enhancing your design and contributing significantly to your home’s energy efficiency.

HomeWorks QS uses automation of your shades and blinds to make them key contributors to your home’s scenes and moods. It accomplishes this by controlling the timing and amount of natural light that enters your home. This same automation also controls the impact of natural light on your heating and cooling system, minimizing extra run time that uses energy unnecessarily. Simply put, intelligent design of window covering automation can dramatically increase your comfort, enjoyment of your living spaces and your home’s energy efficiency.

Energy conservation and energy efficiency are essential contributors to a healthy environment and a sustainable future. With the control and automation possibilities of Lutron HomeWorks QS, you can program your home to provide maximum energy efficiency by integrating lighting, heating, cooling, and natural lighting.

Using HomeWorks QS, you can capitalize on the benefits of natural lighting and create schedules and routines that squeeze every benefit from each watt of power your home uses. All while maintaining a comfortable, enjoyable and welcoming environment inside your home.

Rather than rely on remembering when to adjust temperatures and close or open shades and blinds, let HomeWorks QS do it for you. Here are a few of the energy conserving features and capabilities HomeWorks QS delivers:

  • Creation of schedules that match HVAC operation to your lifestyle, work schedules and other commitments outside of your home.
  • Use of geofencing to simplify the implementation of your schedules based on the location of your smartphone.
  • Controlling natural light (and heat gain) with shades and blinds to manage heat gain and loss.
  • Integrated occupancy and temperature sensors to only condition those areas of the home that are occupied or that need it, a vast improvement over running HVAC systems to maintain the same temperature throughout the entire house.
  • Controlling lighting with dimming controls to take maximum advantage of natural light, reducing energy use.
  • Control of ceiling fans to enhance the performance of HVAC systems and increase occupant comfort.
  • Good night and good morning buttons that implement your nighttime mood and scene including arming of security systems and your morning mood and scene including opening blinds to allow the breakfast area to get the first rays of the new day.

Extensive Integration With Other Systems

Lutron recognizes that there are many capable and creative companies in the home automation market who are continuously improving and innovating their offerings for specific applications. To enable you to take advantage of these innovations and advancements, Lutron can be integrated with many of the industry leaders so that their products work perfectly with the HomeWorks QS system.

Think of these collaborative efforts as future-proofing your HomeWorks QS investment. As new technology emerges that enhances and expands the control of your home and how it meets your needs, you can be confident it will “play nicely” with your HomeWorks QS system.

Take, for example, one of one of the most exciting enhancements to hit home automation, voice control. HomeWorks QS is compatible with Alexa voice control. With Alexa just a word away, you can control temperatures, lighting, operate scenes and moods and more. Likewise, with Sonos music systems, you can call up music to fit your mood or that of your guests.
