Looking to maximize the potential of your space?
Lighting control solutions from Lutron can help you improve comfort and productivity, save energy, and contribute to your bottom line.
Manual controls, including wallstations and personal remotes let building occupants control their light, saving energy and reducing electricity demand. Studies also show that when employees are given personal light control they often prefer to dim the lights, increasing energy savings, and enhancing productivity. Many Lutron solutions, such as the GRAFIK Eye® QS, can also control fluorescent lighting, and Lutron digital addressable ballasts can dim reliably to 1% light level.
Lutron provides a wide range of automated controls including occupancy/vacancy sensors, timeclocks, daylight sensors, and automated shades. Occupancy sensors can automatically turn lights on when a space becomes occupied or vacancy sensors can dim or turn off lights when spaces are unoccupied. Reliable automated time clocks can provide a highly desirable scheduling feature that adjusts lights or shades at certain times of the day or in relation to sunrise and sunset. Daylight sensors automatically adjust electric lighting levels based on the amount of daylight in a space. When it comes to automated control of both daylight and electric light, Lutron provides reliable solutions for any space.
Daylight has both aesthetic and energy saving properties, but it must be controlled to take full advantage of these benefits. Whether it's automated shades to control heat gain and glare or daylight sensors to enhance energy savings, Lutron provides flexible solutions that maximize the efficient use of daylight.
Sunlight invigorates the workplace, but can also decrease productivity with glare and over-heating spaces. Regulate daylight in commercial spaces with a shading solution designed to optimize comfort and lower energy costs. Systems can also be automated and integrated with other controls for additional savings and comfort.
NEW! Performance Shading Advisor:
Lutron’s new web-based Performance Shading Advisor transforms the complicated task of choosing fabrics into a simple selection process. This innovative, commercially-focused tool gives architects and designers the ability to optimize the design of their shading system based on building performance and aesthetic preference. Reduce glare, maximize daylight, preserve view, and enhance your design at www.performanceshadingadvisor.com.
Shades block and reflect direct sunlight during the day to reduce the demand on air conditioning systems during the summer. Certain fabrics are dual-sided with a white or silver backing to deflect more sunlight. In colder months, lowered shades can provide an insulating barrier to keep the building warmer. By automatically adjusting electric light levels in response to daylight, electric lighting needs can also be reduced.
Optimize Daylight & Save Energy
Most buildings today are over-lit because lights are on at full intensity while there is already ample daylight in the space. This wastes energy, creates discomfort, and reduces productivity. Couple a Lutron shading system with a sustainable fabric for a complete energy-saving story, and help earn points toward LEED®.
Versatile Design Options
When selecting a Lutron shading system, you have the choice of technology, control, and fabric. With hundreds of fabrics to choose from in different opacity and color, a conference room can have sheer fabrics for a meeting but blackout shades for an A/V presentation. Bottom-up shades can offer privacy on the first floor with a dim-out fabric while higher levels use a dual-sided fabric to create a uniform appearance from the outside while deflecting more daylight for increased energy savings.
Increase Productivity & Comfort
Preferred light levels and automated shade control are conducive to a productive work environment. Automatically set lights and shades to adjust throughout the day based on daylight available or provide employees with individual control so their needs can be met.
Create a More Flexible Space
Shading zones easily re-configure to allow for flexible use of a room without rewiring. Each zone can be altered to meet specific daylight needs.
Mix & Match
Small offices, conference rooms, and whole buildings have different needs and aren’t confined to sharing the same systems if working together. Having all shades work together on one system doesn’t eliminate personalized control if the needs of a space change throughout the day.
Integration & Connectivity
Lutron is committed to providing best-in-class products and solutions that offer superior performance, with world-class service and support. Whether it’s the seamless integration of Lutron light and shade control products, or integration with third-party products and systems, Lutron solutions present the reliability and convenient control required for today’s demanding applications.
With products ranging from dimmers and lighting control systems, to sensors and window systems, Lutron solutions are designed to provide reliable integration across all of our product platforms.
EcoSystem technology is a control method for LEDs that provides addressing of individual fixtures and status feedback from the LED drivers. This makes it easy to digitally assign occupancy sensors, daylight sensors, time clocks, manual controls and other controls to one or many fixtures without complicated wiring. This opens up an entire suite of energy-saving, system-monitoring and system-control schemes where the design, setup and rezoning are all done within software, making the electrical and control design simple.
Commercial Solutions App
Designed for the commercial building professional, the new Lutron Commercial Solutions iPad ®† app provides easy access to the information and resources needed to inspire, specify, and install Lutron light, shade and energy control solutions for commercial spaces.
3rd Party Integration
Just as Lutron has a lighting control solution for every need, whether it’s a single dimmer or a whole building system, integration options are available for practically every application. Whether it’s a touch screen and A/V equipment in a conference room, patient controls in a hospital, or even building management systems, Lutron provides reliable options for many integration needs.
