Dimming Basics While all Lutron dimmers can save money on energy expenses and maintenance costs, not all dimmers share the same functionality. Before developing a light control strategy, you should understand a few basic facts about dimmers.
Types of DimmersEach type of lighting source (load types) has individual characteristics, which require special types of dimmers. It is important to use a dimmer that is designed, tested, and UL listed for your specific lighting source/load type.
Total Light ControlTrue light control reaches further than shading and dimmers. Lutron light management systems and equipment can make lighting a vibrant and vital part of any space. Daylight sensors, for example, can automatically adjust shades and overhead lights to maintain the perfect look throughout the day, while occupancy sensors can ensure that lights are never left on when a room is not in use.
