View elegant scenes of light control created with Lutron.
Introducing a new era in shade design, this collection is a collaboration between the leader in shade automation and Europe’s premier window fashion brand. View our fabric offerings for roller shades, Venetian blinds, and new XL pleat shades.
This newest addition to the Lutron sensor family allows the control of two circuits from one occupancy sensor, making it ideal for applications that require bi-level switching to meet codes.
The Specification Guides provide detailed product information to help you specify the right Lutron solution for your project.
Before the introduction of electricity, buildings relied on daylight to illuminate interior spaces as a matter of necessity. Today’s updated building codes, new energy regulations, and a renewed emphasis on sustainability, are encouraging us to once again embrace daylight as a practical, aesthetic, and symbolic element of good building design … this is known as designing for Daylight Autonomy.
Daylight Autonomy: designing a space such to maximize the amount of useful daylight, thereby minimizing or eliminating the need for supplemental electric light. In mathematical terms, Daylight Autonomy is the percentage of annual work hours during which all or part of a building’s lighting needs can be met through daylighting alone.
The greatest challenge to using daylight as a primary light source is that it is naturally dynamic. Designing for Daylight Autonomy involves understanding how the entire building is affected by the dynamic nature of daylight, and creating a lighting control strategy to automatically adjust to these changes. Combining Lutron Sivoia QS automated shades, Hyperion solar adaptive technology, and Radio Window™ sensors provides the ideal solution for increasing energy savings while reducing glare and increasing comfort.
