Sterling Ranch Partners with Vanderbilt University
Each year, Sterling Ranch partners with Vanderbilt University to assist students in understanding residential developments. This year, one of the students is researching thoughts and feelings toward smart communities like Sterling Ranch. Below is a message from the research student. Please consider assisting in completing the research project bby taking the survey. 

Message from Vanderbilt student: Please take 1 to 2 minutes to answer the following multiple choice survey questions, which will be recorded anonymously. The survey questions were written by Vanderbilt University student Kate Petosa for her senior honors project, and as part of a partnership between Vanderbilt University and Sterling Ranch. Kate’s research aims to better understand the experience and priorities of smart community residents in several key development areas.
Thank you for your participation. All responses are completely anonymous. If you have any questions, you can contact Kate at katherine.g.petosa@vanderbilt.edu.
Illumination Conundrum
Walking around Sterling Ranch is quite a beautiful sight these days. Holiday lights abound as so many residents have gone all out to illuminate their homes to spectacular levels! Light displays like these bring smiles to faces but as the holidays fade away, the desire to light one’s home does not. There lies the illumination conundrum.
 
Have you ever looked up at the night skies and marveled at the beauty of the stars? The Dark Sky Initiative is an international campaign to reduce light pollution and protect the vibrantly starry skies. Sterling Ranch follows Douglas County’s mandated Dark Sky initiative. In addition to Dark Sky initiatives, Sterling Ranch has other rules and regulations regarding exterior lighting. Navigating these rules and regulations can be daunting for anyone. The CAB recognized this and approved the Enforcement Committee to undertake an Exterior Lighting project. This project includes the Enforcement Committee’s review of the exterior light regulations detailed in Governing Documents and the Douglas County Dark Sky initiative and then an education series for residents. During this time, enforcement of exterior light violations is on hold until February in order for all residents to understand what they can and cannot do when it comes to exterior lighting.
 
The Exterior Lighting Resident Education Series
  • January (2nd week) – Presentation of Dark Sky Initiative and Sterling Ranch Exterior Lighting Rules and Regulations. Presented by the Enforcement Committee and CAB Staff.
  • January (3rd week)- Presentation of Ideas for Illuminating the Exterior of your Home. This will be a presentation of how-to ideas and example products that align with current Exterior Lighting regulations and Dark Sky initiative. Presented by a professional Lighting Consultant.
  • January (4th week) – Astronomy Night – An outdoor event celebrating the night sky.
 
Please watch for the dates and times of the above events. It is important, that as the Sterling Ranch Community grows we appreciate our spectacular night sky as much as we appreciate the beautiful architecture and landscaping of our neighborhood.

Technology Service at Sterling Ranch
The Technology Service Included in Your Home Purchase:
Did you know that each Sterling Ranch homeowner receives one year of complimentary smart home technology support when they purchase a home from a builder at Sterling Ranch? This industry leading free support period gives you time to get familiar with the technology that comes with your home. If something goes wrong, we will be there to help you get back up and running.

What we provide:
  • A technology walkthrough, when you move into your home, to help with internet setup and education on all of your Sterling Ranch smart home technology
  • A website with information and troubleshooting steps: https://Lumiere.Technology/help/
  • A ticketing system to quickly contact us about issues and questions with you technology: https://lumiere.technology/open-a-ticket/
  • A team that is available to troubleshoot your Sterling Ranch smart home technology, at no cost to you, within the first year of purchasing directly from the builder

What happens when your free support period expires?
After your free support period expires, you will still have access to all of the Sterling Ranch provided troubleshooting steps at https://Lumiere.Technology/help/. No matter how long you have owned your house, you can reach out to us at: https://Lumiere.technology/open-a-ticket/. Some issues will require in-person troubleshooting from a member of our team. If you are outside of your warranty period and in need of in-person troubleshooting, there may be a fee for service. Our current rates are $75 for a one-time visit or $15/month for an extended service plan. If you would like to receive the same service that you have been receiving from the technology team, we recommend you reach out and see if an extended service plan is right for you!

Holiday Movies with Safety Messages
Emergencies don’t stop during the winter holiday season. In fact, many injuries and incidents, from heart attacks to cooking fires, increase between November and January. Watching Christmas movies is one of my holiday traditions and I’ve realized that several of my favorite movies contain safety messages. I hope these movies and their risk reduction tips resonate with you and your families.
