Lutron's story began in 1950, when Joel Spria, a physicist, started working on a solid-state device that enabled the manipulation of light-intensity in residential buildings. At that time such technologies were bulky and primarily used to dim stage lights.
His innovative transistor, the thyristor, dimmed the light by interrupting the power flow to the lamp, created less energy and was small enough to replace a regular light switch.
This simple rotary dimmer is still used in many homes and marked the beginning of the lighting control industry.
Lutron was the first to successfully mass-market the dimmer and expanded their line to over 15,000 products in the past 50 years.
Lutron is a technology-centered and people-driven company based on the founder's five principles:
Energy Savings: Whole-home systems make it easy to dim the lights throughout your home to create ambiance and save energy with wireless controls. Install discreet occupancy/vacancy sensors to ensure lights are turned off when rooms are unoccupied.
Safety & Security: Enjoy the safety and security of advanced wireless lighting control. Create a safe path of light to, through, and around your home. Connect your security system to your lighting system for an added level of assurance. Add automated shades to create privacy or protect valuable furnishings.
Pathway Lighting: Create safe navigation through your home. No need to walk from room to room to control each light. Press a button to illuminate a pathway from your bedroom to move easily and safely throughout your home at night.
Control Lights from the Car: Let your lights welcome you home. With a lighting system, you can press a button and your interior/exterior lights turn on as you arrive home. Illuminate a pathway of light from your car and into your home. Ensure lights are turned off when you leave with a single touch of a button.
"Away" and "Vacation" Mode: When you leave for the day, simply press “Away” and conveniently leave your home exactly as you like it – all lights off, all lights on, or anywhere in between. Program a “Vacation” scene to replay your daily routine – turning the lights on and off, raising and lowering the shades – as if you were still home.
Any of Lutron's home systems are managed by the "main repeater" or "connect bridge" depending on the system. It lets you control all of your devices from your smartphone via a Luton app, anywhere in the world at any time. It additionally enables system integration with other brands.
If you need to expand the wireless range of your system, you can add a wireless repeater to enjoy control throughout your home.
