Seamlessly Upgrade Your LiteTouch System with HomeWorks QS

Light touches every aspect of our homes and lives, creating a beautiful, functional environment and setting the mood for our many activities. Thanks to Lutron, the global leader in smart lighting control, how we manage that light has transformed forever.

Today, you can control one or every light in your home with an elegant in-wall keypad. That same keypad allows you to manage daylight, raising and lowering beautiful motorized shades. Daylight sensors automatically adjust lights and window coverings to maintain the perfect illumination. Occupancy sensors ensure the lights are turned off after everyone leaves a room. 

HomeWorks QS is the latest version of Lutron’s flagship smart home control system, and it redefines everyday living with effortless control of lights, shades, temperature, and audio-video equipment. 

Applause Custom Sight & Sound has been providing custom automation and home entertainment solutions in Kansas City, MO, for over 20 years. We integrate the new HomeWorks system and can easily replace LiteTouch systems for clients looking to upgrade their lighting control.
