CEDIA Expo Virtual Booth Preview: Lutron Highlights Ring Integration, Connexion 2020

At CEDIA Expo Virtual, Lutron is announcing its Connexion 2020 campaign, a 6-week virtual training initiative aimed at integrators.

 •

Lutron Electronics is using CEDIA Expo Virtual as a jumping-off point for two key initiatives: its integration with Ring and its new Connexion virtual events with dealers.

First, the company recently unveiled its new integration with Ring doorbells. Now, lights controlled by a Lutron system can be set to turn on when a linked Ring device detects motion, or the doorbell is pressed. Adding lighting to these events adds another layer of security and furthers the impression someone is home.

The new integration is supported by the Caséta by Lutron and RA2 Select smart lighting control systems, and compatible Ring devices.

As part of the integration, homeowners can set Lutron-controlled lights to turn on when motion is detected outside, have their front door and entry lights turn on when someone rings the doorbell, or utilize advanced motion settings to welcome guests to their family home with the appropriate level of light as they approach the front door.

Meanwhile, CEDIA Expo Virtual marks the announcement of Lutron Connexion 2020.

“It is going to be a six-week campaign where we virtually connect with our dealers around the globe,” says Michael Smith, vice president of sales/general manager, Residential, for Lutron. “We will be featuring new products, new tools, new trainings, live panel discussions, additional tech chats, and a multitude of ways to re-engage and reimagine how we connect with our dealers, and bring education, training and development so our dealers can be positioned to take these new innovations to the market at the end of this year and into 2021 and beyond.”

Also at the CEDIA Virtual Expo, Lutron will be sponsoring a panel discussion on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 12 noon EDT, moderated by Tom Doherty, director of new technology initiatives at HTSA. The panel will include lighting designers and integrators discussing how they can forge successful partnerships.

Lastly, Lutron will have experts on hand its virtual booth to discuss the new QSX processor for Lutron Homeworks and its ability to boost integration with more devices in the home.
