Lutron Electronics is collaborating with Extron to bring simple, web-based API integration of its Vive Wireless lighting control solution to today’s smart-building projects. Now, facility managers can easily combine advanced lighting control with features, such as room booking, A/V control of displays, plus other equipment from the convenience of their Extron touchpanel.
Contractors and integrators will appreciate the simple installation and setup: They can just use the same Vive hub they have installed for lighting control flexibility and add the Extron processor and touchpanel or vice versa. No extra components or complexities are required. Quick, frictionless integration helps them get on and off the job quickly, and results in a satisfied customer.
Combine all essential room functions in a single touchpanel interface
With the integration of Vive and Extron touchpanels, you can access more smart features. A single press on the Extron touchscreen allows you to adjust your light level along with other A/V equipment in the room, enhancing the experience and flexibility of high value rooms like lecture halls, conference rooms, and restaurants. In addition, the Vive Wireless system can provide data, such as occupancy status, to the Extron control system to indicate real-time meeting space availability and status. Designing the touchpanel control is simple. The Extron processor sends commands to the Vive Wireless hub via web-based API. The hub then communicates to Vive Wireless load controls to ensure a responsive lighting control experience as part of the smart-building solution.
