Lutron Electronics’ smart dimmers, occupancy sensors, and battery-powered shades will become standard offerings in ‘Wi-Fi CERTIFIED’ homes from Lennar, one of the nation's largest builders.
Lennar’s recently announced Wi-Fi CERTIFIED homes will include Lutron Caséta Wireless dimmers and Maestro occupancy sensors as standard, with the option to add more devices after move-in. Select communities will also include Lutron’s Serena battery-powered shades. Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena automated shades can both be controlled through the free Lutron App or via voice with Amazon Alexa, which will power all of the smart home devices in Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED communities.
“Thousands of home buyers will now enjoy the daily benefits of living a connected life with simple, reliable controls from Lutron and other leading brands,” said Michael Smith, vice president of sales at Lutron. “Lennar’s vision of delivering an immersive smart home experience as part of their ‘Everything Included’ concept will drive widespread adoption of smart home products, which is exactly what’s needed to move the industry forward. Products from Lutron and other leading brands will truly help these customers live their best lives at home.”
Lutron launched Caséta Wireless in 2014 as a solution for controlling lights, shades, and temperature from anywhere in the world, via the Lutron app, the system’s Pico wireless remote controls, or via third-party integration. The system is compatible with most dimmable LEDs, as well as halogen bulbs, making it a simple addition to any new or existing home. Its integration with a wide variety of popular smart home products enhances users’ in-home experience.
“We chose Lutron because it’s the gold standard in quality, service, and reliability,” said David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures. “Lutron is the undisputed leader in lighting control—with elegant products that look great and complement other smart devices to create a new way of living. We’re excited to bring that experience to Lennar home buyers across the country.”
Lennar will begin offering Wi-Fi CERTIFIED home designs in July, rolling out to the entirety of its national footprint by year's end. In addition to Lutron dimmers and sensors, products from Amazon, Baldwin, Kwikset, Honeywell, Ring, Ruckus, Samsung, and Sonos will also be included.
