Lutron Electronics recently announced that its smart dimmers, occupancy sensors and battery-powered shades will become standard offerings in the world’s first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED homes from Lennar, one of the nation’s largest builders. These homes will include Lutron Caséta Wireless dimmers and Maestro occupancy sensors as standard, with the option to add more devices after move-in. Select communities will also include Lutron’s Serena battery-powered shades.
Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena automated shades can both be controlled through the free Lutron App or via voice with Amazon Alexa, which will power all of the smart home devices in Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED communities.
Lennar will begin offering Wi-Fi CERTIFIED home designs in July, rolling out to the entirety of its national footprint by year’s end. In addition to Lutron dimmers and sensors, products from Amazon, Baldwin, Kwikset, Honeywell, Ring, Ruckus, Samsung, and Sonos will also be included.
Lutron has made it easy for builders to integrate smart lighting and shade controls into their homes. Lutron devices are either plugged directly into a wall outlet, easily installed in place of a light switch, or installed on a window as easily as mini blinds, making for a quick and easy installation process. Builders can also turn to Lutron’s LED Center of Excellence to ensure compatibility and superior dimming performance with halogens and LED bulbs.
