Lutron System Remotely Controls Home Lighting
Visitors to Lutron Electronics' Booth W4243 at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando on Feb. 13-16 will find the AuroRa wireless lighting control system, which enables home owners to create a safe path of light from their car or bedside throughout the home.
A switch package for the AuroRa system contains both dimmers and switches, allowing users to remotely control their incandescent light bulbs with dimmers and their energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs with switches.
AuroRa was designed as a low-cost, simplified, radio frequency-based and pre-programmed lighting control system that enables users to enjoy the safety, simplicity and comfort of lighting control without any installation hassles, setup or programming.
Selling for a suggested list price of $850, the switch package contains:
- Three dimmers sized like a traditional toggle switch
- Two switches that turn lights on and off
- Five wallplate inserts that can be used with large-opening, designer-style wallplates
- One tabletop master control for controlling lights from inside the home
- One wireless controller for controlling lights from inside the car
- One central antenna that ensures reliable radio frequency communication among the system’s devices
Installing the AuroRa system simply entails replacing five existing light switches with five AuroRa dimmers and switches. Then, for remote access to lights, the five-button master control is plugged in and the wireless controller is clipped to a car’s visor.
The system’s compact plug-in central antenna and security interface ensure reliable radio frequency communication among all the devices and can be placed in a closet or under a bed.
Each of the five master control buttons controls a single dimmer or switch, while the master control’s “All On” and “All Off” buttons control all five dimmers or switches at once. Each dimmer or switch corresponds with a specific master control button, taking the guesswork out of programming the system.
The original AuroRa package contains five dimmers, one master control, one wireless controller and one central antenna for a suggested list price of $750.
AuroRa packages are available in white, ivory, almond and light almond. For increased capability, two systems can be linked together in the same home for a total of 10 dimmers or six dimmers and four switches.
