Best in Class Connections

Since launching RadioRA in 1998, Lutron has continued to form alliances
with best-in-class brands, integrating new technology, like voice
control that makes it easy for customers to interact with and control
their connected homes. Convenient, connected control enhances peace of
mind and improves quality of life. In addition to voice control with
Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa, Lutron works hard to align with brands
such as Nest, Comcast, AT&T Digital Life, Savant, Honeywell and Logitech.

“Consumers want simple, reliable technology in their homes, and easy
control of their household systems,” said Michael Smith, Vice President
of Residential Sales. “Integration with Lutron Caséta Wireless, RadioRA
2, and HomeWorks QS systems does just that – provides customers with the
ability to say, ‘Alexa, turn on my lights’ or ‘Siri, Good Morning,’
while still preserving their ability to control lights with the Lutron
Pico remote, keypad or Lutron app when voice control is not practical.”

Lutron Quality and User Experience – “it just works”

homes and smart buildings is built into all of Lutron solutions,

hotline that a person always answers.

From watching TV to helping the kids with homework, or enjoying a quiet
dinner, life is more relaxing and comfortable in the right light and
setting. Ask Alexa or Siri to control lights when your arms are full of
groceries. Use convenient remote control capability when the kids are
sleeping or while you’re talking on the phone. Versatile Lutron wireless
solutions also offer tremendous benefits for aging in place or disabled
