New Lutron Smart Bridge Pro and App Enables Dealers and Integrators to Expand their Businesses
Coopersburg, PA (September 11, 2014) – Giving clients the ability to adjust their lights and window shades from a smart phone has never been easier, more reliable, or more affordable. Lutron Electronics, maker of energy-saving wireless light and shade controls, recently announced the Lutron Smart Bridge Pro – a wireless bridge that connects Lutron’s Caséta Wireless dimmers, Pico® remote controls, Serena and Sivoia® QS Triathlon® remote-controlled shades, and third-party devices to a new Lutron App, providing convenient home control from iOS and Android™-based smart devices.
The professionally-installed Lutron Smart Bridge Pro, embedded with Lutron’s powerful Clear Connect® Wireless technology, plugs directly into a home’s Wi-Fi router and sends wireless, radio frequency (RF) communication signals to Caséta Wireless dimmers and Lutron shades. The Lutron Smart Bridge Pro is easily paired with the new Lutron app with the press of a button, allowing dealers to install and setup a system in less than 30 minutes. Simply connect the bridge to the Wi-Fi router, install Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena shades in key areas of the home, and pair these products with the Lutron app for intuitive, smart phone control.
The Lutron Smart Bridge Pro lets dealers offer lighting and shade control from anywhere inside or outside the home, enhancing home security and personal safety, and providing home automation at an affordable cost. The app can be used to dim lights just before the start of a movie, to turn lights on from the car when arriving home, to close shades from the office, or close shades and turn off lights from the airport – all from a smart phone.
“This new, affordably-priced solution gives dealers the ability to offer simple and reliable energy-saving products to clients who are new to lighting and shade control,” said David Weinstein, Vice-President of Residential Sales at Lutron. “This solution features the same Lutron quality the industry has come to know and trust and will help dealers think differently about their business models, as they can now give their clients a connected home solution in three easy steps.”
