Sans Switches - Lighting Scenes

One 5-inch wall-mounted Crestron touchpanel does the work of what used to require several individual light switches. The elimination of the switches freed up wall space for the owners to display their art collection and made controlling the lights much simpler. Preset dining scenes were programmed into the system so that the owners can create the perfect mood lighting at the touch of a button. The lighting levels of the fixtures are displays on the screen of the touchpanel, and the owners can adjust each light individually if necessary right from the panel. The Crestron lighting system also helps the homeowners conserve energy by ensuring that no light operates at more than a 90 percent intensity level.
