Autonomic, manufacturer of whole-house music systems, can now integrate its Mirage Audio System (Mirage Media Server and matching Mirage digital amplifiers) with the Lutron HomeWorks QS total home control system. Now integrators can provide their clients with control of their home audio environment utilizing user-programmable scene presets on all Lutron HomeWorks QS compatible keypads, including the new Palladiom QS keypad.
Designed for high-end residences, the Lutron HomeWorks QS system controls lights, shades, and temperature and integrates with third-party devices. Autonomic and Lutron have collaborated to provide integrators with a simple, yet powerful interface for the Mirage Audio Systems. Through the single button press of a Lutron keypad, homeowners will be able to adjust the lights, shades, and temperature and play their favorite music.
Clients also will have access to user-reprogrammable Mirage presets now available on the Lutron HomeWorks keypad, with features such as one-button access that will automatically play music in specified rooms at specific volume levels. According to the company, changing the preset is as simple as adjusting the content and volume levels with the Autonomic iOS or Android app, and then pressing and holding the desired button on the Lutron keypad to store the scene.
“Any technology designer will tell you that implementing a simple but powerful user experience is among the most complex of engineering tasks,” said Autonomic CEO Michael de Nigris. “Together with Lutron, our teams have developed a devilishly simple interface that belies the complexity that it took to bring it about. The ability to come home and simply press one button to initiate their favorite streaming station playing throughout the home at just the right volume will increase customer’s utilization and appreciation for what we have accomplished.”
“The blending of music and light creates the perfect home environment,” said Mark Jenner, new business alliances director at Lutron. “This simple, yet powerful, integration with Mirage Audio Systems provides Lutron customers with yet another way to create memorable experiences in their homes.”
The Mirage Audio System is a turnkey home audio solution allowing you to listen to your personal music collection combined with popular streaming music services in as many as 96 rooms throughout the home. Autonomic’s exclusive TuneBridge function makes it easy to explore new music, bridging the gap between all sources such as high-resolution digital music, streaming content from Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, SiriusXM, Slacker, TIDAL, Murfie, and Deezer, plus local and international AM/FM radio stations via TuneIn.
