Irvine, CA, United States, 2010/08/16 - Smarthome announced today that it has expanded its offering of appliance and lighting controls by launching over 100 products from light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics, Co., Inc.
The Lutron product offering includes the Maestro® eco-minder™ dimmer and eco-timer™ light and fan control, plus the Maestro Wireless® system with Radio PowrSavr™ wireless occupancy sensor.
The Maestro line of products includes several innovative light and fan control options that not only offer convenience, but also save energy.
The Maestro eco-minder dimmer features an LED that changes from red to green when at least 15% energy is being saved. The Maestro eco-timer saves energy by automatically turning the fan or lights off after a set period of time.
Maestro Wireless offers impressive lighting control functionality and convenience that will fit almost any commercial or residential application. Radio PowrSavr wireless sensors give the system even greater flexibility, plus the added benefit of improved energy savings. The Maestro Wireless system is incredibly easy to install and operate, allowing customers to control light levels with any combination of up to 10 dimmers, switches, sensors and wireless controls — all with the touch of a button.
“We are certainly excited to partner with Lutron and offer our customers yet another fantastic product base,” said Mike Scharnagl, Director of Marketing at Smarthome. “The addition of Lutron products continues our commitment to our customers as a one-stop source for all their home automation, lighting and appliance control needs.”
“Lutron is delighted to be entering into a relationship with Smarthome,” said Michael Maholick, marketing director at Lutron Electronics. “Our energy-saving, easy to install dimmers and fan controls are a great complement to their existing product line.”
