Commercial Applications


Lutron light control is a powerful way to support the design goals important to healthcare facilities. It improves the patient experience and enhances staff performance. Additionally, light control dramatically reduces electricity usage, which contributes to an environmentally conscious facility.

Patient Rooms

Lutron can help patients with the healing process by giving them personal control of electric lights and daylight. Access to personal control of electric light and daylight reduces a patient’s stress and anxiety, and can positively affect the patient’s health and well-being.

Nurseries & NICUs

Nurseries and neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) require lighting that helps infants adjust to their new surroundings. For example, prolonged exposure to bright lights can damage a premature baby's retinas. Due to such risks, these spaces demand highly regulated and versatile lighting. Nurseries and NICUs must also be constantly monitored. Lutron solutions can meet the varied needs of these spaces while providing nurses and doctors the best light for the task at hand.

Surgical Suites & Special Treatment Areas

The lighting requirements in surgical suites vary with the procedure, so the lighting should be adjustable to accommodate the changing needs of the space. Many medical procedures require high light levels during room and equipment prep. During surgery or exploratory procedures, physicians and technicians need lower light levels for a clear view of video images. Surgeons also require lower perimeter light levels to reduce eye fatigue and remain focused during long procedures. In procedures where the patient is awake, lower light levels help the patient relax. In these types of environments, convenient controls and adjustable light levels are essential—and Lutron offers solutions to meet all of these needs.

Imaging & Radiology

Imaging and radiology technology is highly sensitive, and the "noise" from electrical lights can easily interfere with readings. Like surgical rooms, bright lights are needed for set up, and low lights to view video imagery. Lights should also be adjustable to alleviate a patient's anxieties. Lutron offers a system specifically designed for these spaces, providing controlled and versatile lighting for patients and staff.

Stairwells & Corridors

Stairwells and corridors are sometimes left unoccupied for hours at a time, but need to be well-lit when someone enters the space. The Lutron PowPak stairwell fixture keeps the lights on at a dim level to meet local codes, and brightens the lights when the stairwell is occupied, providing a safe path of light. Using these strategies, the fixture can save over 80% of lighting energy usage and meet building codes and standards.

Administrative Offices

Modern office spaces must be designed to increase both energy efficiency and employee productivity. Lutron offers systems that automatically and comfortably adjust lighting and shading to efficiently balance electric light and available daylight. These systems also provide personal control, allowing individuals to set lighting for any work-related activity. Occupancy and vacancy sensors can also be integrated to turn lights off when a space is unoccupied.
