Lutron Announces Integration of Its Vive Wireless Lighting Control Solution With Extron Touchpanels

Facility Managers Can Now Easily Include Vive Wireless Lighting Control as Part of Their Extron Touchpanel Solution With New, Web-Based Api Integration

USA, Coopersburg, Pennsylvania. September 01, 2020

Lutron Electronics, the leader in lighting controls and automated shading solutions, is proud to announce you can now easily include Vive Wireless as part of an Extron touchpanel solution. This collaboration brings simple, web-based API integration of its Vive Wireless lighting control to today's smart-building projects. Now, facility managers can combine advanced lighting control with features such as room booking, A/V control of displays, plus other equipment from the convenience of their Extron touchpanel.

"At Lutron we are committed to simplifying smart-building control and elevating the lighting experience for specifiers and installers, as well as for the people in the space," said Matt Ochs, Sr. Director Mid-Market Business, Lutron Electronics. "We are excited to work with Extron - a leader in A/V Technology - to bring Vive wireless lighting control together with touchpanel and A/V integration through the simplicity of a web-based API."

During project design, the new Extron and Lutron integration helps to eliminate risk for engineers and designers who are reassured by the long-standing, trusted reputations of two industry icons. They can specify with confidence, knowing the integration will be seamless, and work as expected.

Contractors and integrators will appreciate the simple installation and setup - they can just use the same Vive hub they have installed for lighting control flexibility, and add the Extron processor and touchpanel - or vice versa. No extra components or complexities are required. Quick, frictionless integration helps them get on and off the job quickly, and results in a satisfied customer.

Combine all essential room functions in a single touchpanel interface

With the integration of Vive and Extron touchpanels, you can access even more smart features. A single press on the Extron touchscreen allows you to adjust your light level along with other A/V equipment in the room - enhancing the experience and flexibility of high value rooms like lecture halls, conference rooms, and restaurants. In addition, the Vive Wireless system can provide data such as occupancy status to the Extron control system to indicate real-time meeting space availability and status. Designing the touchpanel control is simple. The Extron processor sends commands to the Vive Wireless hub via web-based API. The hub then communicates to Vive Wireless load controls to ensure a responsive lighting control experience as part of the smart-building solution.

"We are very excited to offer our customers all the advantages of the Lutron Vive Wireless solution right from the simplicity of our touchpanel controls. By working with Lutron - the world leader in smart lighting control - we know that our customers are getting an enhanced experience and a reliable, robust integration," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron.

The Vive Wireless/Extron integration is available for project specifications starting August 31, 2020. To learn more about Vive Wireless solutions, visit lutron.com/vive.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
