Luminaire Smart Homes


Eagle Resident David Foster talks about Smart Homes and AI


David Foster’s journey into the Smart Home Business began as a commercial electrician in Seattle back in the late 90’s. In 2006, he founded Luminaire, initially an electrical contracting company, with a strong focus on lighting design and control. Despite the challenges of the 2008 economic downturn, David’s career took a fortunate turn when he was approached by a major Home Technology company in Seattle. This experience expanded his expertise in technology and integrated systems, including home automation, lighting control, HiFi audio systems, and much more.


As a Systems Integrator, Luminaire specializes in designing and building Smart Homes and Home Theater systems, covering a wide range of services. This includes interior and exterior lighting control systems, home theater systems, HiFi audio, network systems, security and camera systems, and comprehensive whole-home control.  Luminaire boasts a stellar reputation, backed by numerous 5-star Google reviews, and David is happy to provide testimonials from satisfied clients upon request.


David acknowledges AI’s significance and the transformative impact it’s having and will continue to have globally. Luminaire has already integrated AI in various aspects, such as SEO, social media, and design. David sees AI’s potential in streamlining programming tasks and recognizes both the excitement and concerns associated with this technology. They approach new technology with cautious optimism, aiming to harness its benefits while considering potential risks.


In terms of the latest automation trends, Luminaire’s showroom at 4464 W Chinden Blvd showcases a ton of cutting-edge technology. Notable examples include Control4 home automation systems, which give the homeowner the ability to control every system of their home or office. Short-throw projectors are also trending, as they offer large 4K viewing screens without compromising space or quality. Automated shades from Lutron are a quiet and elegant way to control light and ambiance in home or office settings. Luminaire is also Idaho’s exclusive KEF loudspeaker elite dealer, offering revolutionary speaker technology that often leaves visitors amazed.


The company stays updated on evolving trends in the rapidly changing tech market to provide Boise clients with the best options. David’s philosophy centers on integrating timeless tech and AV equipment with the latest network and control systems.
