Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics has announced that its HomeWorks® whole-home lighting control system can now be accessed and controlled via Apple iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
While planning the Palms of Perdido condominium project on beautiful Perdido Key, Florida, developers and resident owners Dick and Teresa Domurat spent several years researching amenities, including lighting controls. They selected Miro wireless RF controls and occupancy sensors from Watt Stopper/Legrand based on ease of installation, simplicity of system expansion and product performance and styling.
When interior designer Katy Mellon, Allied Member ASID, undertook designing the complete remodel of a 1968 tract home in San Diego, California, she embarked on an eye-opening learning experience. The prime goal was to create a safe, efficient, attractive and accessible home for her son, Nathaniel Ladendorf. Ladendorf is disabled from a spinal cord injury and needs wheelchair access to all areas of his residence. Mellon also had to meet California Title 24 requirements, but did not want to compromise her design scheme in order to do so.
Lighting controls, including Watt Stopper/Legrand’s Miro controls and residential occupancy and vacancy sensors, played an important role in the successful completion of the project. Ladendorf moved into his home in December 2007 and Mellon says, “Every time I see Nathaniel come into his house and touch just one switch to light up his safe haven, I experience great peace of mind.”
