The Maestro line of in-wall dual technology sensor switches now offers both neutral and no-neutral required models. Lutron uses XCT technology to enhance both the passive infrared and ultrasonic sensing for maximized sensitivity to detect even very fine motions, such as typing.
Lutron’s NEW facility management tool empowers you to manage your building from anywhere. Easily monitor, control and optimize a Lutron control system from any tablet, PC or smartphone. Each feature is designed around what is most important to you – how well your building is working.
The Specification Guides provide detailed product information to help you specify the right Lutron solution for your project.
In general terms, the smart grid is the modernization of today’s electricity grid, with improved technology to help save energy, reduce your electricity bills, and decrease brownouts and blackouts. The smart grid features two-way communication—between you and the utility company—so that you can see how much electricity you’re using, when you’re using it, and how much it costs.
One of the major components of the smart grid is demand response, meaning a utility will work to decrease electricity demand during peak hours. Utilities will offer lower prices for using electricity during off-hours when demand for electricity is low.
Commercial building owners can receive financial incentives from demand
response programs while using less energy and saving money. Lutron smart grid
solutions contain load shedding software that can easily reduce lighting loads
either at the touch of a button or via an automatic command. Lighting is an ideal
choice for load shedding in a commercial application because it consumes a
substantial amount of electricity and because power reductions can be implemented
gradually with no interuption to productivity so that they go unnoticed by the occupants
in a building.
