Visit Our Lutron Experience Center for a Firsthand Look

Do you remember phone booths or cell phones that looked like walkie-talkies? Many of you may have to search Wikipedia to remember what these once prevalent technologies provided. In much the same way, there will come a time when we'll have to search the recesses of our memories for the days before motorized shades. 

Why the popularity? Imagine your shades rising before you awake, letting in the first rays of the sun, or automatically closing as darkness descends to allow for total privacy. Think about never having to pull on a cord again to raise or lower your window coverings. Instead, they operate in unison, allowing the filtered light of the sun to shine through while protecting your furnishings from the sun's direct glare. Imagine! 

At First Priority Audio, we partner with industry leaders in customized window coverings, home automation, and audio-visual solutions. In the world of smart window coverings, Lutron shades are our number one pick for our clients in Lighthouse Point, FL, and the surrounding areas. Let’s explore why.

What Is Human-Centric Lighting?

20220125-153442FIPRAU_JanuaryBlog3_LutronInstaller_DelrayBeachFL

Home Lighting That Anticipates the Perfect Mood

We’ve all been in spaces that are lit too brightly. Imagine walking into a hospital or a fluorescent-lit store. Cool-white lighting may feel fine during the day, but it often feels harsh or uncomfortable after dark. On the flipside, dim interiors during the day can feel gloomy and stuffy.  

Many homeowners accidentally use lights that aren’t suited to the right time of day. They might turn on an icy-white lightbulb that looks fine when getting ready in the morning but appears much too bright at night. Incorrect lighting goes far beyond aesthetics—light’s been proven to influence our moods, both positively and negatively.

The solution? Install a smart lighting system that will automate your lights to follow natural sunlight. Lutron’s tunable lighting solution, Ketra, transforms the way you illuminate your home with ‘human-centric lighting.’

As a Lutron installer based in the Delray Beach, FL, area, we’ll shed some light on what human-centric lighting really means and how it can improve your daily moods.

How Smart Lighting Can Regulate Your Circadian Rhythm

What Is Our Circadian Rhythm and Why Is It Important? Find Out Here

Do your days often go something like this?

You wake up feeling groggy, wishing you had more time to sleep. You settle into the office with a cup of coffee, and it’s not long before you feel like you need another. But by nighttime, you lie in bed, unable to sleep, glancing at the clock every ten minutes.  

If so, it sounds like your circadian rhythm is out of sync. The circadian rhythm is the 24-hour cycle that tells our bodies when it’s time to sleep and eat. Many factors influence our inner clocks, a significant one being lighting.

Natural daylight tells our mind that when it’s dark, it’s time to sleep, and when it’s bright, we’re awake. But what if we spend the majority of our time indoors? And now that the winter days are shorter in South Florida, we’re spending even more time under lightbulbs.

Circadian lighting can help. Smart technology is already assisting homeowners across Fort Lauderdale to feel their best and live more productive lives. Read on to learn how circadian lighting works, why it’s beneficial, and how it will enhance your daily life.
