Once reserved only for new homes, a HomeWorks® whole-home lighting control system, can be installed in older and historic homes as well as additions or renovations.

A HomeWorks® system provides convenient, intelligent, and sophisticated control of your home's interior and exterior lighting.


  • Security
    • Connect HomeWorks to a security system to activate lights in case of a fire or burglar alarm. In the event of an intrusion, the inside lights can be set to full ON and the outside lights can be set to FLASH to draw attention. In the event of a fire, lights along the shortest path of egress can be turned on to a medium level such that the smoke is not blinding and your family knows how to get out quickly. Security Mode may also be activated manually from a keypad. When Security Mode is deactivated, the lighting returns to the original levels set before Security Mode was activated.
  • Vacation Mode
    • HomeWorks constantly monitors and records the state of all lighting in a home. When Vacation Mode is activated, the system plays back your real-life lighting events, providing a realistic appearance of activity while the home is unoccupied. Vacation mode randomization is also an option. Randomization slightly varies the times at which lighting events occur, thus creating a more realistic image of an occupied home. The system can be programmed to record the last day’s, the last week’s, or the last two weeks’ activities.
  • Fail - Safe Operation
    • HomeWorks Local Lighting Controls and GRAFIK Eye® Preset Local Lighting Controls remain fully functional even in the unlikely event communication to the processor is interrupted. Dimming panels also have manual override capabilities, which can be activated from dedicated switches located anywhere in the home.
  • Power Failure Memory
    • All HomeWorks components are designed with power-failure memory. If power is interrupted and restored, lights will automatically return to the levels to which they were set prior to the power outage. HomeWorks system programming is retained in non-volatile memory and is not affected by loss of power.


    • HomeWorks provides the capability to activate events only if specific conditions are met. For example, program driveway sensors to turn on exterior lighting only if it is dark. A single “Dining” button could set different lighting and music for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
    • HomeWorks can automatically trigger events at specific times of the day or at times relative to sunrise or sunset. By knowing your location, HomeWorks knows when the daily sunrise/senset times occur. HomeWorks even adjusts for seasonal changes in daylight savings time. Program multiple schedules allowing for different timeclock events on weekdays, weekends, holidays, etc. For example, you may want to turn your landscape lights on 15 minutes before sunset every night and use the sprinkler system to water the lawn every other day at sunrise.
    • HomeWorks Keypads can be customized to meet your changing needs. Each keypad button may be programmed to activate any of the lights in the system. Keypad buttons may also be programmed to control audio, video, and other integrated subsystems. And keypads can be engraved, letting you know for certain the programming behind the buttons.


    • The days of having six switches line up on the wall are over. One elegant HomeWorks keypad can be used to control the lights. And with engraved buttons, there is no guessing which switch turns on which lights, you know which lights you are turning on.
    • HomeWorks offers a variety of control options depending on your wants and needs. Perhaps you want a subtle dimmer on the wall that does not detract from the other features of the room. Perhaps you want a keypad with large, backlit buttons at the entrance to your media room you use to set up for the movie. Check out the extensive line of HomeWorks controls to determine which ones are right for you.
    • With HomeWorks extensive array of colors and finishes, you choose the look you want for the unique décor of your home. Whether you want a contrasting metal finish keypad in the bedroom or a more subtle dimming control on the kitchen backsplash, HomeWorks extensive colors and finishes allow you to create the look you want.
    • HomeWorks keypads and local lighting controls complement each other with matching colors, styles, and finishes. After all, the receptacle on the backsplash of your kitchen should match the color of the dimmer. A full range of wallplates, receptacles, telephone jacks, and cable jacks are available to match system controls. Architectural-style faceplates can even be customized to match a home’s paint, wallcoverings, or decor.

HomeWorks seeTouch and Signature Series keypads are backlit so that the button labels are easily read in a dark room. No need to turn the lights on to read the buttons that are supposed to turn the lights on.


    • HomeWorks is the only lighting control system able to offer precise integration with shades. With Sivoia QED shades, you not only can open and close a shade, you can send it to precise levels. As you read the morning paper you raise the shades just a crack with the tabletop keypad next to your chair, allowing just enough natural light to read comfortably.
    • HomeWorks® has been designed to integrate with audio, video, and other subsystems in a home. A typical application includes control of an audio system from buttons on a HomeWorks keypad. Interface the system with other equipment using contact closure inputs and outputs, infrared inputs, and RS-232 se rial communication.
    • The telephone interface allows access and control of up to ten different functions or events from any touchtone phone. The telephone interface guides the homeowner through each step with customized voice messages and provides positive verbal response when a function or event has been activated. Utilize this capability from telephones within the house or across the world.
