  • With just basic project details, contractors provide clients with on-the-spot lighting control system estimates.

    Coopersburg, PA – Lutron Electronics, the leader in lighting controls and automated shading solutions, is helping contractors save time and secure more jobs with quick lighting control estimates for today’s smart buildings. QuEst-D Quick Estimating and Design software is an intuitive, web-based tool that walks you through basic project information to instantly provide a code-compliant, Lutron wireless lighting control solution, project estimate, and bill of materials. 

    “Contractors are increasingly dealing with labor shortages and compressed project schedules,” said Rick Walsh, Lutron Product Manager. “Lutron Vive wireless solutions simplify installation and setup and now QuEst-D software makes design, bid, and project estimates easier too. With QuEst-D, contractors can help their customers make an informed choice and deliver project estimates with higher confidence.”

    Start with just basic project information 

    With QuEst-D, contractors start byanswering basic questions about their project – such as square footage, building location, and project type. The software automatically accounts for regional codes and labor costs then generates, in real time, a suggested bill of material, pricing, and project estimate ready to present to the customer. 

    Along with one recommended solution, QuEst-D provides alternatives and highlights the benefits and cost of each option. For more in-depth reports and estimates the contractor can add details about situations, schedules, and code needs. More information results in more accurateestimates. 

    QuEst-D can also be used as a complimentary tool with Lutron Designer+ software to layout project specifics on a floorplan and create full submittal reports as the project progresses. 

    Enhanced wireless opportunities

    Lutron Vive wireless solutions offer simple and scalable lighting control for new and existing commercial buildings and help reduce laborcost while significantly increasing system flexibility. QuEst-D further minimizes risk and simplifies the project process with easy solution comparisons, accurate labor estimates, instant cost comparisons, and code-compliant solutions. 

    QuEst-D is available in the U.S. and Canada at no cost. This is a new, web-based tool that helps contractors be more competitive and more efficient in today’s fast-paced construction cycles. 

    Visit Lutron at NECA 2020, Booth 610 for a preview of the QuEst-D software, or learn more about QuEst-D at www.lutron.com/questd.

  • Lutron brings immersive lighting experience to heart of Manhattan

    COOPERSBURG, PA – For almost six decades, Lutron Electronics has been a leader in the lighting control industry. Now, as Lutron celebrates its new Commercial Experience Center in Manhattan, the company is once again bringing bold ideas and a fresh vitality to lighting and design.

    “Experience” is the operative word at the flagship center, located just off Fifth Avenue at 3 E. 28thStreet in New York’s lively NoMad neighborhood. At the core of the center is the Lutron HXL approach, a broad philosophy of human centric lighting that deftly employs four elements of lighting design – natural light, quality light, connection to the outdoors, and adaptive and personalized control -- to help people be, work, and feel their best. 

    The new center, which opens for business today, offers architects, designers, contractors, developers, and building owners an inclusive vision of Lutron lighting and control capabilities. 

    It is “designed with the customer journey in mind,” says Scott Hanna, Executive Vice-President.

    “The new center provides an immersive experience that reveals how lighting and controls can impact different space types and people’s sense of well-being,” says Hanna. “It gives them opportunities to enhance and foster the human experience.”

    The center is designed to inspire and encourage clients and customers to expand the ways they think about lighting design – not just as illumination, but as an amenity for acquiring and retaining talent, attracting guests, and stimulating students and educators.

    Customers are invited to experience Lutron’s recent acquisitions: Ketra – dynamic smart lighting that mimics daylight indoors – and Limelight smart exterior lighting control. 

    In addition, the center showcases the company’s best-in-class solutions, including a Quantum system with integrated Sivoia QS, as well as contract roller shades, Palladiom keypads, and the myRoom guestroom solution.

    Lutron Co-President Ramin Mehrganpour observes that the center puts more of Lutron’s growing portfolio of solutions on display. “We can now highlight more of our comprehensive, innovative product offering,” he says.

    The center’s footprint is appropriately spacious: at 5,500 square feet, it’s almost twice the size of Lutron’s original Penn Plaza location. Moreover, being in NoMad, just south of Midtown, puts the company squarely in the middle of New York’s most important tech and design-oriented neighborhood, convenient to a number of architecture, design, and Silicon Alley firms.

    Other notable aspects of the center include:

    • Solutions for a wide variety of building types.Lutron controls offer distinct benefits to workplace environments, hotels, and educational institutions – all of which are specifically addressed at the new center. Indeed, the space incorporates a complete model hotel suite employing Lutron’s myRoom hospitality guestroom control system.

    • Dedicated meeting and training spacesfor Lutron clients and customers. With New York being a destination city and a hub for international specifiers, Hanna expects a high percentage of visitors to come from outside the United States.

    • A broad landscape of Lutron products.Lutron solutions on display include Ketra, Limelight, myRoom, T-Series tunable white, the Quantum lighting control and energy management system, EcoSystem technology, and Vive wireless controls.

    • WELL certification.The center is designed to meet the WELL Building Standard supporting occupant health and wellness in the built environment. WELL dovetails with Lutron’s approach to human centric lighting, Lutron HXL, which promotes comfort, enables enhanced well-being, and fosters engagement.

    Mehrganpour believes Lutron customers will gain a fresh view of lighting control. 

    “I hope our customers see how the benefits of lighting technology and lighting control, as demonstrated in this new center, improve their lives,” he says. “Once you experience an industry-defining innovation like Ketra, as well as true lighting control, you’ll never want to be without it.”

    The New York Commercial Experience Center is available to visit by appointment. Other Lutron Experience Centers are located in Coopersburg, Pa.; Plantation, Fla.; Irvine, Calif.; Washington, D.C.; Toronto, Canada; and London, UK. A Residential Experience Center is located in Midtown Manhattan.

  • Combination of creative strategies, innovative products raise the standard of lighting excellence by illuminating the human experience in workplaces, hotels, educational institutions

     

    Coopersburg, PA – In recent years, human centric lighting – a philosophy describing lighting that creates more comfortable, welcoming, and engaging environments for people – has become a widely discussed talking point in the building industry. But differences of opinion regarding its impact and scope have generated discussion among industry specifiers and end users.

    Lutron Electronics, the leader in lighting controls and automated shading solutions, believes human centric lighting should promote comfort, enable enhanced well-being, and foster engagement. As Scott Hanna, Lutron senior vice president, says, “High-quality lighting has become an essential amenity in the construction and design industry. It helps attract and retain talent, and creates extraordinary experiences.” 

    To further those goals, Lutron has created a holistic approach to human centric lighting: Lutron HXL

    The Lutron HXL approach combines four elements of lighting design to allow people to be, work, and feel their best: Quality Light, Natural Light, Connection to the Outdoors, and Adaptive and Personalized control. 

    The approach recognizes the importance of biophilia, a human connection to nature; incorporates the Internet of Things with smart technology; and allows people to manage their environment with a variety of personalized control. Indeed, the four elements of lighting design focus on different aspects of the human experience:

    • Quality light.The impact of quality light can’t be understated. For designers, it can mean the difference between delivering their design intent – such as preserving color or highlighting architectural features – or not. For occupants, it may make the difference between feeling engaged or detached. With tunable white control and high-performance dimming, Lutron quality light technology helps create unforgettable experiences. 
    • Natural light.Sunlight, of course, is the standard by which light is measured. The HXL approach maximizes daylight with dynamic shading solutions, which let light in while mitigating glare, and brings it indoors with solutions from Ketra, whose technology provides light that seamlessly emulates daylight in interior spaces. Together, the seamless combination of daylight and interior light feels balanced at any time of day.
       
    • Connection to the outdoors. The concept of biophilia, which suggests that humans have an inherent desire to connect with nature, has become a central component of architectural design. The Lutron HXL strategy emphasizes window views and uses shades that mitigate glare to promote this relationship.
    • Adaptive and personalized control.The Internet of Things, through automation and connection, is helping to create flexible, dynamic environments that interact with people, support efficiency, and help save energy. Lutron’s approach also leverages smart technology to change spaces for the benefit of the occupants and allows people to shape those spaces with personalized control.

    The HXL approach also supports sustainability by helping reduce energy costs and embracing elements of the natural world, and it contributes to design supporting WELL and LEED standards.

    Lutron HXL specifics reinforce the innovative design choices that are being made in commercial spaces such as offices, hotels, and college campuses. Hanna explains that a broad-based strategy is key to meeting the needs of the people in these settings.

    “The Lutron HXL approach illuminates the human experience,” he says. “The concept of human centric lighting is about creating more comfortable and engaging environments for people. With this approach, Lutron puts the benefits of human centric lighting at the core of any discussion about lighting control and technology.”  

    The Lutron HXL approach is being presented at Booth #1724 at Lightfair. Visit lutron.com/HXL for more information.
