Lutron Electronics has added compatibility of its Caséta Wireless system with the new Wi-Fi and Apple HomeKit-enabled Symphony and Signal ceiling fans from Hunter Fan Company. Available now for $299 and $349, respectively, these are the first HomeKit-enabled ceiling fans on the market, according to Lutron.
Using the Lutron App, homeowners can adjust their Hunter Symphony and Signal ceiling fans (including the light) to a preferred setting, and easily set the desired scene with other lights and shades. Caséta Wireless users can also use convenient voice control: tell Siri, “Turn on the fan,” or “Dim the family room light to 50 percent.”
“Lutron creates great homeowner experiences,” said Matt Swatsky, director of product management at Lutron Electronics. “It’s all about making life easier. With our products you can control lights, shades, temperature, and audio with an easy-to-use app on a smart device. Giving homeowners the ability to control their ceiling fans from the convenient Lutron app, or from Siri, is just a natural extension of the way Lutron approaches comfort and convenience within the home.”
“Hunter Fan is excited to work with Lutron to offer this next generation of control,” said Jeremy Tarr, director of business development at Hunter Fan Company. “Our fans efficiently enhance comfort and contribute to the ambiance of the room along with many other devices. Now, with the Caséta Wireless system, consumers can easily adjust all of those elements to personalize their environment.”
