Lutron Electronics’ 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. Through the use of Lutron lighting and shade controls, buyers will enjoy such benefits as never entering a dark home and using lights and shades to mimic occupancy when away from home.
Lennar’s recently announced Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 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.
Lutron launched Caséta Wireless in 2014 as a simple and affordable solution for controlling lights, shades and temperature from anywhere in the world, via the Lutron app, the system’s Pico wireless remote controls, or via third-party integration. The system is compatible with most dimmable LEDs, as well as halogen bulbs – making it a simple addition to any new or existing home. Its easy integration with a wide variety of popular smart home products provides users with a great in-home experience.
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.
