How a Lutron Lighting System Plays Well with Others

Explore Lutron’s Many Home Technology Integration Options

How a Lutron Lighting System Plays Well with Others

We are living in a world awash with smart devices. Every day, something new comes out that adds intelligence and connectivity to an everyday device or appliance. Would you like a coffeemaker that can be turned on via Amazon Alexa voice control?

We Rhode Islanders are sometimes skeptical. Perhaps we don’t need a connected coffee maker, or maybe we think it’s a great idea. Regardless, what we do want in smart devices and home automation is the ability to make that automated functionality work well with other features in our home in the Westerly area. There are quite a few “connected” light bulbs and electrical plugs out there, but they only connect to one app on your phone. 

When it comes to lighting systems and control, there is one undisputed leader in the field – Lutron.  Lutron originated the first solid-state lighting dimmer way back in 1959, and has not stopped since, creating sophisticated lighting control systems for both residential and commercial use. 

Lutron has invested heavily in integration with other systems. If you are looking for a lighting control system, you want to be able to integrate it with other home control solutions, either now or in the future. 

Let’s take a look at some of the ways Lutron lighting systems play well with others.

Elan Smart Home System Upgrade Wows Jackson Hole Family

How a Hartford Integrator Successfully Renovated an ELAN Smart Home

Elan Smart Home System Upgrade Wows Jackson Hole Family

 

About four years ago, the Hartford-based integrator C&T Systems installed an ELAN smart home automation system at a large home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The smart home, complete with Lutron lighting and shading, home entertainment controls, and surveillance, won awards from Lutron for its amazing installation and performance. But when the tides of technology changed, it was time for an upgrade. The client was interested in an upgrade and wanted new controls since the old ELAN interface was somewhat limited.
