Lutron Offers Smart Lighting Solution with Aurora
Lutron is ready to solve the main problem in smart lighting with the new Aurora smart bulb dimmer. Instead of working with the light switch, the battery-powered dimmer will essentially become the light switch. The Aurora dimmer is mounted directly on top of a toggle switch in an “on” position making Philips Hue smart bulbs and fixtures ready to use at any time.
“The Lutron Aurora dimmer is the perfect complement to the Philips Hue system – it offers yet another convenient and familiar way for you to control and enjoy what our smart lighting can do. It also blends in well with any interior design style,” said Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader, Home Systems and Luminaires at Signify. “With Lutron as our new ‘Friend of Hue’, we’re continuing to deliver on our promise of making smart lighting even more accessible to anyone in the home.”
The Aurora has a classic design that won’t intimidate guests who may be unfamiliar with smart lighting. Locally, Aurora works like a regular dimmer switch (knob and all) and since it locks into place, it’s virtually impossible to accidentally turn it off. Since it runs on Zigbee technology, the Lutron Aurora smart bulb dimmer will also continue to work if they Wi-Fi conks outs.
