Even Smarter Lighting

Lighting, Americas, Supplier News

Lutron Electronics has integrated Vive Wireless with its Extron touchpanel solution following a collaboration to provide web-based API access for its smart lighting control solution.

 

The development allows facility managers to combine advanced lighting control with features such as room booking, A/V control of displays, plus other equipment from the convenience of their Extron touchpanel.

 

During project design, the new Extron and Lutron integration helps to eliminate risk for engineers and designers who are reassured by the long-standing, trusted reputations of two industry icons. They can specify with confidence, knowing the integration will be seamless, and work as expected.

 

Contractors and integrators will benefit from simple installation and setup which operates the same way as any previous Vive hub installations and requires no additional components or complexities.

 

Combine all essential room functions in a single touchpanel interface

With the integration of Vive and Extron touchpanels, you can access even more smart features. A single press on the Extron touchscreen allows you to adjust your light level along with other A/V equipment in the room – enhancing the experience and flexibility of high value rooms like lecture halls, conference rooms, and restaurants.  In addition, the Vive Wireless system can provide data such as occupancy status to the Extron control system to indicate real-time meeting space availability and status. Designing the touchpanel control is simple. The Extron processor sends commands to the Vive Wireless hub via web-based API. The hub then communicates to Vive Wireless load controls to ensure a responsive lighting control experience as part of the smart-building solution.

 

Matt Ochs, Senior Director of Mid-Market Business for Lutron Electronics, says: "We are committed to simplifying smart-building control and elevating the lighting experience for specifiers and installers, as well as for the people in the space.

 

"We are excited to work with Extron – a leader in A/V Technology – to bring Vive wireless lighting control together with touchpanel and A/V integration through the simplicity of a web-based API."

 

Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron, adds: "We are very excited to offer our customers all the advantages of the Lutron Vive Wireless solution right from the simplicity of our touchpanel controls.

 

We know that our customers are getting an enhanced experience and a reliable, robust integration." 

 

The Vive Wireless/Extron integration will be available for project specifications from August 31, 2020.
