What is Scene-Setting ?

The term Scene Setting originates in the theatre where lighting is used as a device to vary the emphasis or ambience in different scenes of a production.

The same variations may be created in everyday situations, in the home or restaurant for example, to change the perception and ambience through lighting control to suit different uses or times of day.

To achieve this, seperate lighting circuits are controlled by switching or preferably by dimming, to add or subtract layers of light to vary and balance the overall effect.

Lighting control devices are available that allow the user to create scenes or combinations of lighting circuits that can then be memorised in the dimmer unit and re-called exactly each time the scene button is pushed.

Examples include products by Lutron, Mode, Rako and details can be found in the products section under the sub category Controls
