How Lutron Can Make Your Technology Smarter

Expand Beyond Simple Lighting Control

How Lutron Can Make Your Technology Smarter

In the past, we’ve written about the many benefits of lighting control systems.  We’ve also written about Lutron, the acknowledged leader in lighting control, and some of its many features.  But Lutron has also done some exciting things to blend lighting with other home automation features. 

In this blog, we’d like to feature a couple of useful integration features that add convenience and a touch of luxury.  We’re big fans of Lutron’s flexibility and control options with lighting.  We’re also fans of Sonos, whose wireless speakers and Connect system brings a simple approach to whole home audio.  And we’re also fans of Amazon’s Alexa, for the power it brings to voice control.

Lutron is a fan of both too, and they have made it easy to control Sonos audio through their simple wireless remotes and keypads, as well as use your voice to control your lights through Alexa.  It can also make your home a little safer by working with Google’s Nest camera.

Read on to read more about some of Lutron’s many integration options.
