Lutron Redefines the Boundaries of its HomeWorks QS System with the Introduction of New, Flexible Solutions

Delivers new configurations and small project solutions with all the features of HomeWorks QS

Coopersburg, PA (September 7th, 2017) – Lighting and shade control leader Lutron Electronics today announced the availability of new Lutron Connect packages as well as a family of DIN rail panels and modules, opening the door to more project opportunities for its HomeWorks QS system integrators. These new products deliver increased flexibility that gives integrators the ability to complete a project of lighting controls and shades on a single QS wired link.

The new Lutron Connect packages include a 1-link processor and the Lutron Connect Bridge. These packages reduce the starting price of a HomeWorks QS system and bring the Lutron Connect app with remote access and expanded cloud based integration to every project. Additionally, HomeWorks QS integrators can now utilize the new DIN power panels and modules to provide flexible dimming and switching solutions on the QS link. DIN power modules (DPMs) are specifically designed for the best LED dimming performance available.

“By redefining the boundaries of its HomeWorks QS system, Lutron is helping integrators differentiate themselves in the marketplace,” said Rich Black, Director of Residential Business Development at Lutron. “These new solutions allow dealers to take on smaller projects while staying within the HomeWorks QS family of products.”

These new HomeWorks QS connect packages and DIN offering provide:

1. Simplicity: New 1-link processor is ideal for smaller projects. This is a cost saving solution when only one link type is required (RF or QS). For multi-processor projects, the 1-link processor can be configured to any link type including: QS Wired, RF, RPM Panel or H48/Q96. DIN power modules support any lighting load type so integrators can easily adjust for last minute changes to the lighting fixtures. The 1-link HomeWorks QS processor and the DIN solutions are supported in version 12.0 of the HomeWorks QS Designer Software.

2. Space-savings: New DIN rail panels for installation in smaller spaces. Lutron's DIN rail family includes various DPMs: Phase Adaptive Dimmers, Switches, 0-10V Dimmers and EcoSystem digital controllers as well as multiple enclosures of different sizes to hold the DPMs. These new panels provide more dimming zones per panel minimizing the equipment footprint, ideal for apartments, condominiums and yachts.

3. Cost-effectiveness: Fewer panels are needed for budget-conscious projects. This solution provides price sensitive options for smaller projects by using the 1-link processor and reducing the number of interfaces.

4. Complete compatibility: Works with all existing HomeWorks QS components with access to all HomeWorks QS luxury control options. DPMs also provide the best LED dimming performance available, including options for phase control, 0-10V, and digital.


Available this October, Sivoia QS configurable power panels will further maximize flexibility for wired shading products. The panels are available in 10 output and 30 output versions and provide a prewire landing point during construction. When shades are installed, power supply modules with five outputs are easily snapped into place.

The Connect Packages and DIN power modules and power panels are available now.
