Crestron has announced new LED Light Fixtures created to meet the design, intelligence, elegance, and customization that homeowners demand. The new fully tunable light fixtures add real-time personalized lighting control into the Crestron Home operating system.
Through the Crestron Home platform, homeowners have full control of the color of their lights, including hue, saturation, color temperature, and intensity of light, or they can opt to synchronize Crestron’s LED Light Fixtures with their natural circadian rhythm or utilize a Crestron SolarSync sensor to match the natural light outside. The SolarSync sensor is an outdoor sensor that communicates the outside color temperature to Crestron Home in real time.
With Crestron Home, it’s easy for both homeowners and integrators to customize and make changes to lighting. Some examples of what can be done include:
- Scene-based control — Set scenes for one-touch control and to suit an individual’s preferences. Scenes can specify white light, colors, or can trigger circadian or SolarSync cycles. “One-touch warm Dim” or “One-touch Wellness” allows users to have favorites to toggle between at any time.
- Whole-home settings can be used for lighting to run on a homeowner’s circadian rhythm, but this can be easily interrupted. For example, a Party scene could be selected to brighten lights, change colors during an event, and be de-selected back to the default after the event has ended. They can then switch to a dinner party scene turning off the circadian lighting but, when switched back on, the setting syncs with where it should be, not with where it was turned off.
- The new LED fixtures are also further customizable to add focal points of light to any space in a home, such as a piece of artwork, fireplace, nook, or kitchen island, and that area will always have the optimal light temperature and color, regardless of other lighting in the home.
The modular design of the Crestron LED Light Fixtures makes them suitable for any room. Fixture options include adjustable, wall wash, fixed frame, pinhole fixtures, multiple enclosure possibilities, and square or round trims.
In tandem with the introduction of LED Light Fixtures, Crestron is also announcing the addition of third-party fixture manufactures to its partner program. Select fixtures from these partners will have native Crestron Home integration and can take advantage of Crestron Home’s user experience for tunable lighting.
The LED market continues to see fragmentation and closed ecosystems that force designers and installers into proprietary solutions, limiting flexibility and choice, often forcing their customers to compromise on design or functionality. Crestron’s fixture partner program addresses this challenge by establishing enabled fixtures across a wide variety of brands to integrate seamlessly into the Crestron Home platform.
Crestron will be offering a variety of training on the topic of lighting, and those interested in seeing Crestron’s new LED Light Fixtures can see a demo at Crestron NEXT Road Trips. The fixtures are set to be available for the United States and Canada in Summer 2022.
