“OK Google, turn on the family room lights.”
Lutron Electronics has announced new integration with Google Home that allows homeowners to voice control their Lutron Caséta Wireless, RadioRA 2, and HomeWorks QS lighting systems using the Google Home, a voice-enabled speaker powered by the Google Assistant.
“Lutron continues to work with best-in-class companies to enhance our customers’ connected home experience. This latest integration with the Google Assistant reinforces Lutron’s leadership in the connected home space,” said Ed Blair, senior vice president at Lutron Electronics. “With Google Home’s voice-powered Google Assistant, customers can interact with and direct their connected homes easier than ever, and for today’s busy families, this service is invaluable.”
In addition to Google Home, the Google Assistant is accessible on Pixel (a phone by Google, and the first with the Google Assistant built in), select Android phones, and Android Wear.
The Google Assistant will work with Lutron’s Caseta Wireless system (available now) via the Smart Bridge, and the RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS (available in June) via the Lutron Connect Bridge.
Priced from $99, Caséta Wireless kits are available on Amazon.com, The Apple Store, and Apple.com, BestBuy.com, and Best Buy stores, HomeDepot.com, and The Home Depot stores, Lowes.com and Lowe’s Home Improvement centers, Magnolia Design Centers, select Magnolia Home Theater stores, and from local electricians, lighting showrooms, electrical distributors, and home technology professionals. The free Lutron App for Caséta Wireless is available on Google Play and iTunes. Visit www.casetawireless.com for more information.

In September 2016, Lutron began integrating
its HomeWorks QS and RadioRA 2 lighting control systems with Amazon Alexa, after enabling voice control via its Caséta Wireless system earlier in the year.
