Lutron Opens Award for Residential System Providers

Lutron Electronics' annual Excellence Awards competition is now accepting submissions, until August 1.

Lutron Electronics’ annual Excellence Awards competition is now accepting submissions, until August 1. Founded in 2003, the competition recognizes the world’s best total home control projects using Lutron’s lighting, shade, temperature and energy controls. More than 100 of Lutron’s residential system providers have been honored since the competition’s beginnings.

Entrants are being asked to focus 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; and use of Sivoia QS Triathlon battery powered shades.

“Project excellence can be defined in many ways — whether it’s a unique application of Lutron systems and shades, custom integration with a security system, or as a primary energy saver in the home,” said Michael Smith, vice president of sales at Lutron. “Lutron’s residential system providers strive for marketplace excellence every day and we’re delighted to honor them with these prestigious awards.”

Winners will be announced on September 11, in conjunction with the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo in Denver, CO.

“Tell us how you delighted your customers, how you overcame a challenge and how our products helped you solve a problem,” said David Weinstein, Vice-President, Residential Systems Sales. “Get creative with your entries – the more details the better.”
