Lutron Electronics is doing its part to feed the pipeline for integrators. Lutron recently had a two-and-a-half minute interview on Fox & Friends, a TV show on the Fox News Channel.

In the interview, which took place during the EcoFocus press event in New York City, Lutron’s senior residential public relations manager Melissa Andresko runs through Lutron’s energy-saving motion-sensing technology, dimmers for LEDs and CFLs, and its new Sivoia QS battery-powered shades in an interview with host Clayton Morris.

Did anyone else notice Lutron’s booth was strategically placed next to the bar? And there seemed to be quite a few half-empty glasses on the tables. If that’s what it takes to get national mainstream media interested in this technology, so be it. Cool stuff!

The show averages one million viewers daily.
