At the 2013 Dallas International Lighting Market, Connecticut Lighting Centers won the 2012 HomeWorks Job of the Year Award from Lutron. This prestigious annual award is chosen from entries all across North America.
Jim Meltzer, Outside Sales Manager, was responsible for designing a whole-home lighting control system for an exclusive 18,000 square foot home using the Lutron HomeWorks QS system. HomeWorks QS is a sophisticated system that offers peace of mind with state of the art whole-home controls that are easy to use, have energy saving benefits and easily integrates with third party systems.
The Award-Winning HomeWorks QS Project Included:
- 233 zones that are controlled by Remote Power Modules, Hybrid Keypads, wireless switches, wireless dimmers and even a control for holiday decorations.
- 43 keypads, three table top controls and a garage entry system.
- 29 countdown timers in the closets and mechanical rooms.
- A variety of motorized shades including roller shades and venetian blinds for windows and entries for privacy and sun remediation.
The HomeWorks QS system in this home is still growing with requests for added controls. The latest request is to integrate a Pentair pool system that can be controlled by the Lutron HomeWorks QS system.
“The monumental task of programming 288 buttons, the garage entry, and all of the time clock programs ended up being great fun. Seeing the homeowners reaction to how this system works reminds me of taking a kid to Disney for the first time,” said Jim.
Jim has over 40 years of experience in the lighting industry and his specialties include Whole-Home Lighting Controls, Landscape Lighting and Custom Lighting Design.
“We are very proud of Jim. His efforts have earned Connecticut Lighting Centers two prestigious awards including the 2011 Five-Star Showroom of the Year by Lutron. His passion and knowledge for Lighting Controls is an extremely valuable asset,” said David Director, President and Owner of Connecticut Lighting Centers.
