Lux Smith Designs

LUX-SMITH Lighting & Controls Design

Lighting and controls are synergistic and must be designed as a unified system. New LED luminaires are capable of unbelievable optics with infinite variations in aesthetics, optic distribution, color and intensity. The designer must understand new technologies with precision to meet the requirements of each application. Only detailed 3D simulation can reproduce the hundreds of possible outcomes to arrive at the best solution that meets the design intent and performance criteria – all at the lowest cost. Optecha’s LUX-SMITH designs are highly predictive, accurate and designed to deliver results.
