CE Pro Editors · June 28, 2017

Lutron Electronics has announced the call for entries for its annual Excellence Awards competition. The competition recognizes the best total home control projects using Lutron lighting, shade and temperature controls integrated with third-party products. More than 100 of Lutron’s residential system providers have been honored since the competition was founded in 2003.

“Over the past 15 years, our customers have shared their best implementation of Lutron lighting and shade controls — everything from condos and multi-dwelling units, to palaces, yachts and farms. This competition has given us a view into some of the most impressive projects in the world,” says Michael Smith, vice-president of sales at Lutron.

To enter, submit a description of the project, including unique challenges and homeowner requests, along with a 60-second video (or up to 10 photos). Entrants are encouraged to focus their entries on the following topics:

  • Essence of Pleasance
  • Use of RadioRA 2
  • Use of HomeWorks QS
  • Integration with a security system
  • Energy-saving applications
  • Integration with third-party equipment
  • Use of Sivoia Qs shading and drapery solutions
  • Use of Sivoia QS Triathlon battery powered shades
  • Use of lighting and shading in trophy/specialty rooms
  • Best integration of voice control with Lutron products
  • Use of High Performance LED Fixtures and control of all LED sources

Smith added, “Special consideration will be given to video entries, which allow you to show and tell your story in the best light.”

A panel of independent judges will select the winning projects in mid-August and winners will be announced on Thursday, September 7, 2017 during the CEDIA Expo in San Diego, California. Winners will receive a crystal award, recognition on and in a press release, and a winner’s logo to use on their marketing materials and website.
