Crestron has introduced its own line of LED light fixtures, designed for custom home automation systems and design-friendly homes. The fully tunable light fixtures add real-time personalized lighting control to the Crestron Home operating system.
Through the Crestron Home platform, homeowners have full control of the colour of their lights including hue, saturation, colour temperature, and intensity. You can also synchronize Crestron’s LED light fixtures with their natural circadian rhythm or use a Crestron Solar Sync sensor to match the natural light outside. The Solar Sync sensor is an outdoor sensor that communicates the outside colour temperature to Crestron Home in real time.
“Lighting affects everything: mood, concentration, creativity and given the human need for health and wellness within our home, homeowners are looking to designers and technology providers for tunable LED lighting control to support this,” says John Clancy, Executive Vice President, Residential, Crestron. “Increased awareness of topics such as circadian rhythm, biophilia, and wellness are putting a focus on personal health as impacted by our surroundings. Crestron Home technology uniquely supports this market and can help professional designers and installers bring these coveted solutions to their customers.”
With Crestron Home, homeowners and integrators can do things like set scenes for one-touch control, switch among different scenes and sync the settings back to default once done, or use the fixtures to add focal points of light to specific spaces, like a piece of artwork, fireplace, nook, or kitchen island.
The modular design of the Crestron LED Light Fixtures makes them suitable for any room, with options that include adjustable, wall wash, fixed frame, pinhole fixtures, multiple enclosure possibilities, and square or round trims.
In tandem with the introduction of LED light fixtures, Crestron is also announcing the addition of third-party fixture manufacturers to its partner program. Select fixtures from these partners will have native Crestron Home integration and, as a result ,can take advantage of Crestron Home’s user experience for tunable lighting.
“With third party light fixture manufacturers partnering with Crestron for our LED Partner Program, we’ll see a huge step forward in the architecture of intelligent and appealing LED light fixtures in addition to the numerous configurations available with the Crestron LED light fixture,” Clancy adds.
In a Crestron Home system, the Crestron LED light fixtures work in harmony with all Crestron shading options including the newly announced battery powered shades to provide homeowners the ability to manage all aspects of lighting throughout their home.
Crestron will be offering a variety of training on the topic of lighting, and those interested in seeing Crestron’s new LED light fixtures can see a demo at Crestron NEXT Road Trips. The fixtures are set to be available for Canada and the U.S. in summer 2022.
