How Best to Automate Your Motorized Shades

Integrate Lutron’s Smart Shades with Crestron for Unparalleled Home Control & Automation

Lutron: Beauty & Engineering 

There is no name like Lutron in lighting and shading control. To see why, we need only to look at their top-of-the-line motorized window treatment, the Palladiom Shading System. Palladiom shades are designed to be seen, featuring exposed aluminum brackets, dozens of designer fabrics to choose from, and sleek, modern control interfaces. They are also hyper quiet, and like all other Lutron shades, will self align across an entire home down to an eighth of an inch. 

Palladiom shades integrate seamlessly with other systems as well, and may be automated to create a highly efficient climate control system. And speaking of integration, let’s explore the relationship between Lutron and Crestron in more detail. 

Seamless Integration with Crestron 

Lutron and Crestron have formed an alliance to bring the best of both companies to smart homes across the world. Today, it is easier than ever to integrate Lutron control systems, such as HomeWorks, with the Crestron Home OS. How does it work? Crestron Home now automatically detects Lutron products on the home network, allowing all lighting and shading control to take place directly on Crestron touch screens or smart devices. That means one app, and one tap, to control light across your entire home!

Among the advantages of this seamless integration is the ease to recall preprogrammed lighting scenes along with other systems. For example, selecting an entertainment scene on your smartphone’s Crestron Home app will dim the lights and lower the shades in the media room, turn on all AV systems, and even lower the temperature to “freezing” for a realistic theater experience… or to the perfect temperature for you and your family; whichever you prefer!
