With smart home product usage at an all-time high, this new customer-centric homebuilding concept delivers a seamless in-home experience with lights, automated shades, thermostats, and more

Coopersburg, PA (June 21, 2017) – Lighting and shade control leader Lutron Electronics today announced that its smart dimmers, occupancy sensors, and battery-powered shades will become standard offerings in the world’s first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED homes  from Lennar, one of the nation's largest builders. Through the use of Lutron lighting and shade controls, buyers will enjoy such benefits as never entering a dark home and using lights and shades to mimic occupancy when away from home.

Lennar’s recently announced Wi-Fi CERTIFIED homes will include Lutron Caséta Wireless dimmers and Maestro occupancy sensors as standard, with the option to add more devices after move-in. Select communities will also include Lutron’s Serena battery-powered shades. Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena automated shades can both be controlled through the free Lutron App or via voice with Amazon Alexa, which will power all of the smart home devices in Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED communities.



“Thousands of home buyers will now enjoy the daily benefits of living a connected life with simple, reliable controls from Lutron and other leading brands,” said Michael Smith, Vice-President of Sales at Lutron. “Lennar’s vision of delivering an immersive smart home experience as part of their ‘Everything Included’ concept will drive widespread adoption of smart home products, which is exactly what’s needed to move the industry forward. Products from Lutron and other leading brands will truly help these customers live their best lives at home.”



Builders Can Count on Lutron
Lutron launched Caséta Wireless in 2014 as a simple and affordable solution for controlling lights, shades and temperature from anywhere in the world, via the Lutron app, the system’s Pico wireless remote controls, or via third-party integration. The system is compatible with most dimmable LEDs, as well as halogen bulbs – making it a simple addition to any new or existing home. Its easy integration with a wide variety of popular smart home products provides users with a great in-home experience.
 
“We chose Lutron because it’s the gold standard in quality, service and reliability,” said David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures. “Lutron is the undisputed leader in lighting control – with elegant products that look great and complement other smart devices to create a new way of living. We’re excited to bring that experience to Lennar home buyers across the country.”
