LiteTouch Repair – A Simple Switch To Lutron

LiteTouch Repair - Simple Switch To Lutron

FROM LITETOUCH TO LUTRON

At Bekins, we provide solutions. For example, we offered a simple fix for customers who are left without support from LiteTouch.

Savant bought the company in 2012, then stopped selling all products related to hardwired lighting.

Our technicians recently visited a West Michigan home built in the mid 1990s, which was still using LiteTouch. Several keypads stopped working in the home.

Our technicians provided solutions with the help of Lutron. They did not need to open up any walls, instead our technicians used the wiring already in the home.

Lutron provides keypads, processors and dimi modules specifically designed to upgrade LiteTouch homes.

In conclusion, the homeowners loved the system repair. They upgraded their 20-year old home lighting control system to include more functions plus the option to control it from an iPad.

Integrated Home By Bekins Gets CEDIA Spotlight

Integrated Home

CEDIA recently featured one of our internationally-acclaimed Electronics Integration projects. Our CEDIA-Certified Electronics Systems Designer, Dustin Deal, gave them a closer look at an integrated home along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

The article details what our team installed into this integrated home.

“Making the controls intuitive for a variety of users across a range of ages was key. ‘The home’s got audio in every room, automated shades, lighting control, total-coverage wireless networking, RF remote controls in every room with a television, and touchpads and keypads all around — we had to ensure that setting every scene in this home is just a touch away,’ says Deal.”

Our team also installed a Panamax BlueBolt PWM, which allows our technicians to power cycle products remotely as needed.

Smart Lights – Local Homes Use Automated Lighting Installed By Bekins

If you think about your daily life, you likely pay for convenience. You have a smart phone, a smart TV, but what about smart lights?

It especially helps when you have multiple stories to your home. When you want to go to bed but can’t remember if you turned off all the lights? Hit the “Goodnight” button. That not only saves you time, it saves you energy and can even reduce your electricity bill.

The pictures below offer recent examples of West Michigan homes with Lutron lighting control installed by Bekins.

The homeowners chose to automate their home with Crestron so they can control their entire home, including the Lutron lights and shades, through their iPad. However, they also have the option to turn lights on or off and even set “scenes” with a discreet control panel on the wall. As you can see with the pictures below, the panel blends in well with the home.
