Music lovers can now control their home’s sights and sounds in a simple and personalized way, as lighting control leader Lutron Electronics ushers in the future of light and music with Sonos-endorsed integration and a new Pico Remote Control for Audio.
The collaboration with Sonos, the sound platform for the connected home, gives consumers direct, one-touch control of any Sonos speaker alongside lights, shades and temperature, when used with Lutron’s Caséta Wireless, RadioRA 2, and HomeWorks QS smart home systems.
Play, pause, skip tracks, and adjust volume, in exactly the same way that you control lights and shades from your nightstand or from the wall.
“Lutron works with best-in-class brands like Sonos to enhance the user experience,” said Michael Smith, Lutron vice-president of sales. “The alignment of these two powerful brands, whose products both deliver sensory experiences, means creating a better atmosphere for every occasion – not just for family dinners, but for your everyday music enjoyment. With the Pico Remote for Audio, consumers can have quick, convenient, hard-button control of audio alongside lights and shades, helping to create the perfect mood.”
“Our collaboration with Lutron makes it even easier to control Sonos in the connected home,” says Andrew Vloyanetes, Sonos global business development manager. “We believe the home is better with sound, and now with Lutron, music lovers have even more control of Sonos alongside their home lighting, shades, and temperature to easily personalize their home experience.”
The Sonos integration is built directly into all Lutron smart home systems, making it easy to incorporate the control into each solution. In addition to the new Pico remote, consumers can use any Lutron keypad and app to incorporate Sonos audio control into customized lighting scenes.
Priced from $49, the Pico Remote for Audio is available at local lighting showrooms and Amazon.com, plus home systems professionals.
Caséta Wireless kits are available on Amazon.com, Apple Stores and Apple.com, BestBuy.com and Best Buy stores, Home Depot.com and The Home Depot stores, Lowes.com and Lowe’s Home Improvement centers, Magnolia Design Centers, select Magnolia Home Theater stores, and from local electricians, lighting showrooms and electrical distributors.
