Our team of product experts works to ensure that everything from system design and integration, to installation works the first time and every time you use our products.
Most buildings today are over-lit because light levels are set higher than appropriate for the space, or spaces are lit even when they are unoccupied. This wastes energy, creates discomfort, and reduces productivity. Make your building work harder for you by adding intelligent, energy-efficient light control. Lutron provides flexible, scalable systems that can fully integrate lighting, shading, and sensors for maximum energy savings. These solutions can be easily designed, installed and reconfigured to meet the changing needs of your building.
Sunlight invigorates the workplace, but can also decrease productivity with glare and over-heating spaces. Regulate daylight in commercial spaces with a shading solution designed to optimize comfort and lower energy costs. Systems can also be automated and integrated with other controls for additional savings and comfort.
As awareness shifts towards the increasing benefits of energy efficiency, many businesses are exploring new methods of conservation. Lutron's intelligent and highly flexible light control systems are easily integrated and capable of generating substantial savings while contributing towards productivity and the overall aesthetic of your building.
In many ways, a retail space is like an interactive advertisement. Factors such as lighting play a vital role in presenting the merchandise and affecting a customer's overall experience. Behind the counter, the right light controls can also make a store and its employees more productive.
Retail stores often have very complicated lighting demands. The size of the store, the location of the windows, the items being featured, and the time of day all combine to influence the lighting strategy at any given moment.
To devise a light management system that can accommodate all of these needs is not only a complex challenge for the engineers, but also the employees that have to operate it. This is where simple yet powerful solutions like the Lutron GRAFIK Eye® 4000 can make an enormous difference.

HAI Will Make Your Dreams of an Automated Home Come to Life.
HAI offers complete integrated home solutions for every lifestyle and budget with a full range of automation products.
HAI products may be installed in new construction or retrofitted into existing homes. Wireless options are available.
HAI products are designed to be integrated with an HAI Omni or Lumina home control system; however, many HAI products will work stand-alone (work without an HAI home control system).
Home Control System
An HAI Omni or Lumina home control system is the brain of your automated home. It controls and monitors systems in your home to maximize your safety, comfort, convenience, and energy savings.
Easy to Use
HAI systems are simple to understand and operate, which is why they are Automation Simplified®. Even young children can learn and understand how to use the basic features of HAI products.
HAI uses embedded controller technology in its home control systems, a technology proven to be reliable with decades of use. HAI controllers have no fans, disk drives, or other moving parts to fail.
All HAI products can work in a stand-alone fashion so they are not dependent on any other products in the house, including computers. There is no single part that can cause an entire system to fail. For example, if a lightning strike disables your HAI controller, light switches still control the lights and thermostats still control your heating and cooling system.
How would you like to keep your home comfortable and save money on your energy bill?
HAI is a leader in promoting energy efficiency within the home environment by providing ways to reduce energy consumption while maximizing comfort.
A Lumina control system provides comprehensive energy management and sophisticated lighting control to both homes and small commercial buildings. It is easy to operate and has unrivaled expandability.
With a Lumina controller, you can minimize the use of electricity across a broad range of categories that contribute to your energy bill.
Heating and Air Conditioning
According to the US Department of Energy approximately 56% of an average home's energy usage is for its heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Using an HAI Omnistat2 thermostat will reduce your home energy costs.
Omnistat2 thermostats let you automatically schedule your heating and air conditioning settings based upon the day of the week and time of day. They allow you to set back temperatures when you are not home and to warm/cool the home to your desired temperature for when you return home.
Omnistat2 thermostats learn the heating and cooling patterns of your home using an advanced process developed by HAI in conjunction with the US Department of Energy. By learning these patterns the Omnistat2 maximizes the efficiency of your HVAC system to keep your home at the comfortable temperature that you have set. When used with a participating utility, Omnistat2 thermostats have the ability to communicate with your electric meter to show the current cost of energy, how much energy you have used, and how much your utility bill will be this month. All Omnistat2 thermostats display real-time energy usage in graph format.
Proper humidity control is another important aspect of remaining comfortable while saving energy. The RC-2000 Omnistat2 thermostat has a built-in humidity sensor and can control humidifiers/dehumidifiers.
HAI offers temperature and humidity sensors for temperature based control of attics, garages, greenhouses, basements, wine cellars, or coolers. Water temperature sensors may be used to supervise and manage pool or spa temperatures.
Use any Omnistat2 thermostat as stand-alone or integrate it with an HAI home control system.
Using an HAI Home Control System you can change Omnistat2 thermostat settings based upon events, time, or sensor readings. Moreover, since HAI home control systems provide remote access via both telephone and over the Internet you may access your home at any time and change your thermostat settings.
Lighting control enhances the enjoyment and value of your home, adds security for peace of mind, and contributes to savings on your energy bill. HAI systems offer elegant lighting control while reducing energy consumption.
Have your lights automatically turn off when you leave the home.
Studies show that dimming a light by just 10% can save 10% of electricity and double the life of the bulb. HAI systems can automatically set lights to 90%, saving you money anytime a light is turned on.
Dim and control your home lighting by schedule, motion detection, door openings, sunrise, sunset alarm activation, and more.
Hot Water Heaters
According to the US Department of Energy an average home spends 14% of its energy costs on heating water. Use HAI's heavy-duty Load Control Modules (LCM) to manage when your hot water heater is turned on and reduce its cost.
When connected to an HAI home control system, lights and an HAI thermostat may be controlled locally, or via a Touchscreen, the Internet, Smartphone, or a telephone.
- Your HAI home control system can turn off lights, water heaters and pumps when the house is unoccupied. Additionally, you can control ceiling and ventilation fans for comfort and energy efficiency.
- Log into your home anytime via the Internet using HAI software to monitor energy usage and change your temperature and light settings.
- If you are leaving early from work, call your system to set temperatures and lights to comfortable levels. Or use Snap-Link Mobile on your Smartphone to graphically view and control your lights and temperature. Great option for vacation homes!
