CasaTunes music can now be controlled anywhere in the home from Lutron lighting control devices, including RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS system keypads, Pico wireless controls, and timer events. CasaTunes integration is available on CasaTunes music servers.
Using the CasaTunes App, users configure a CasaTunes action to take place when a Lutron keypad button is pressed or a timeclock event occurs. Actions include powering rooms, changing the volume, rotating through sources, songs and playlists, and various transport controls, such as playing and pausing music. To simplify setup, CasaTunes automatically discovers all Lutron keypads and timeclock events, and updates this information whenever the Lutron configuration changes.
“Our business focus at CasaTunes is providing integration and support for connected home technology our dealers are installing,” said David Krinker, president of CasaTunes. “Our integration with Lutron systems makes it really easy for homeowners to use one or more of their Lutron keypads as alternate or complementary control devices, and leverage the timeclock events to automate listening to their music.”
“At Lutron, our first company principle is to take care of customers, which includes a focus on creating an exceptional user experience,” said Rich Black, director of residential systems at Lutron. “The integration of Lutron lighting control systems with CasaTunes music helps homeowners create a more comfortable space with the added convenience of controlling lights, shades, temperature and music with the press of one button.”
CasaTunes Music Servers also integrate with home automation systems from Control4, Compass Control, HDL, RTI, and URC, as well as popular AV receivers.
