“Lutron is a leader in providing sleek designs and aesthetic enhancements to every one of its product lines,” Rich Black, director of residential business development, said in a statement announcing the launch. “A focus on fashion is the future of lighting control, and the HomeWorks QS and RadioRA 2 systems just got styled.”
The two lines now offer the design community more architectural accessories, allowing them to create a more coordinated, high-end look throughout the home. Among the changes, Lutron has modified its Grafik T touch dimmer and switch to integrate with the HomeWorks QS and RadioRA 2 systems. Both will feature a new GRAFIK T phase selectable dimmer that works with incandescent halogen lights as well as almost any load type, including LEDs.
The seeTouch C.L. Hybrid Keypad will now have the ability to control LED loads while maintaining dimming, flexible button configurations, and custom engraved buttons with backlighting.
Finally, the Palladiom keypad ties into the HomeWorks QS system. Lutron says it's the first of its kind to feature buttons and faceplates made of the same material—plastic, glass or metal—for a coordinated aesthetic. Its customizable button layout and programming accommodate virtually any function. Additionally, it has large, tactile buttons with backlit, engraved text that are simple to operate and easy to find in a darkened room. Its variable backlight intensity controlled through Lutron’s Dynamic Backlight Management™ provides the right brightness for any ambient lighting conditions.
The new products will be available early this year, with prices ranging from $299 to $549.
