Lutron Electronics is helping contractors, distributors, and estimators to streamline their projects from early-stage estimates to final installation with its comprehensive offering of QuEst-D™ Quick Estimating and Design software, Vive Lighting Control solution, and Vive Vue app. This product suite simplifies design and installation, delivers increased system flexibility, and puts greater control in the hands of both contractors and end users.
Start with just basic project information
With QuEst-D software, contractors start by answering basic questions about their project – such as square footage, building location, and project type. QuEst-D software is an intuitive, free web-based tool that automatically accounts for regional codes and estimated labor costs to generate a code-compliant, lighting control solution in real time with a suggested bill of material, pricing, and project estimate ready to present to the customer.
The software can help contractors be more competitive and efficient and is already making an impact in the field. “The faster I can get an estimate to my customer, the more likely I am to secure the project. QuEst-D software provides me a reliable estimate in minutes,” said Stephen Borruso, Project Estimator for BEI Electrical in Pennsylvania.
Deliver a Smart Scalable Solution that Adapts to Shifting Building Needs
The Lutron Vive solution not only offers simple and scalable lighting control for new and existing commercial buildings but continues to offer new products that enhance system capability. Recently, convenient, connected Vive in-wall sensors were introduced for even greater system flexibility.
Paired with the Vive Vue app, facility managers have a solution that provides valuable data to help maximize both space use and energy use – now and for the future of their building. Vive Vue was recently named a finalist for the 2019 CSE Magazine Product of the Year award in the system software category.
Shaun Myers, a Lighting Specialist at Van Meter, Inc, an Iowa-based electrical distributor, uses Vive solutions and the Vive Vue app on a wide variety of projects because they make installation and setup seamless, “The Vive System is super-easy to set up and control. Once you have the Vive app downloaded, the step-by-step directions just walk you through the process. It’s hand-down the easiest commercial system I have ever commissioned,” said Shaun.
