Lutron has led innovations for almost 50 years, in window shade technology for the control of daylight, as well as wired and wireless systems, to integrate the control of both daylight and electric light.
Lutron holds over 2,700 worldwide patents. In addition to the solid-state dimmer, Lutron innovations also include the first electronic dimming ballast for fluorescent lights and the first self-contained preset lighting control system.
Lutron was also the first to successfully mass-market the dimmer, the first to successfully market systems of linked dimmers, and is still the only company to create systems of dimmers and motorized window shades that control both electric light and daylight.
As world-renowned as they are, Lutron light controls continue to perform the most valuable of personal services – helping to keep people safe and comfortable in their own homes.
On the residential side, light controls are installed everywhere from single-room apartments to palatial homes, including the White House and Windsor Castle.
Individual dimmers create a cozy atmosphere at the touch of a button, or can be operated from the car to turn lights on as you approach the house. Groups of dimmers can be operated remotely from a cell phone, PDA, laptop, iPod, touch screen, or universal remote control.
