Lutron is a technology-centered and people-driven company. As a private corporation guided by our founder’s simple but profound Five Principles, Lutron has a long history of significant growth and smart innovations.
The Lutron story began in the late 1950s in Joel Spira’s makeshift lab in New York City. A young physicist fascinated by the aesthetic manipulation of light, Spira commandeered the spare bedroom in the apartment he shared with his wife, Ruth, and set out to invent a solid-state device that would enable people to vary the intensity of the lights in their homes.
The very idea was radical. That all changed in 1959, when Spira emerged from his lab with a solid-state dimmer that could replace the light switch in a standard residential wallbox.
Dimmers were practical too. They saved energy, and the more you used them, the more energy they saved. With energy costs already going up, the Spiras believed that the energy-saving aspects of the new invention would ensure the long-term appeal of lighting controls.
They were right.
Benefits Of Lighting Control
Energy Savings: Whole-home systems make it easy to dim the lights throughout your home to create ambiance and save energy with wireless controls. Install discreet occupancy/vacancy sensors to ensure lights are turned off when rooms are unoccupied.
Safety & Security: Enjoy the safety and security of advanced wireless lighting control. Create a safe path of light to, through, and around your home. Connect your security system to your lighting system for an added level of assurance. Add automated shades to create privacy or protect valuable furnishings.
Pathway Lighting: Create safe navigation through your home. No need to walk from room to room to control each light. Press a button to illuminate a pathway from your bedroom to move easily and safely throughout your home at night.
Control Lights from the Car: Let your lights welcome you home. With a lighting system, you can press a button and your interior/exterior lights turn on as you arrive home. Illuminate a pathway of light from your car and into your home. Ensure lights are turned off when you leave with a single touch of a button.
“Away” and “Vacation” Mode: When you leave for the day, simply press “Away” and conveniently leave your home exactly as you like it – all lights off, all lights on, or anywhere in between. Program a “Vacation” scene to replay your daily routine – turning the lights on and off, raising and lowering the shades – as if you were still home.
Lighting Control Systems
RadioRA 2 is a wireless total home control system.

The system also integrates with other manufacturers for audio-visual and HVAC control, as well, for broader control of your home environment. And it does all of that while saving energy. So you’re not only choosing a system that will redefine your way of living, you’re also investing in a system which can pay for itself over the life of your home.
Lutron roller shades create the perfect light for any space or activity with an offering of sheer, dim-out, and blackout fabrics. Choose a sheer to maintain view while diffusing UV rays that may damage furnishings. Dim-out fabrics provide privacy while blackout fabrics are 100% opaque to eliminate all daylight.
Horizontal Sheer Blinds
Beautiful fabric meets industry-leading technology in these window treatments, where the soft elegance of a sheer is paired with the precise control of a blind.
Lutron drapery track systems electronically operate a variety of styles, including pinch pleat and ripplefold, in addition to the innovative Kirbé® Vertical Drapery System. Select a fabric from The Avant Collection™ for complete systems.
The angular design of pleated shades adds a crisp, modern look to any space, and the wide array of fabric options ensure a signature look.
Roman shades lend an air of sophistication to any space while managing daylight. With over 100 fabrics and woven woods available in a variety of pleat styles, you are sure to find the perfect aesthetic match. CERUS (Cord-Eliminating Roman Uptake System) provides a safer, more reliable and better performing Roman shade.
Venetian blinds are an attractive and effective way to ensure privacy while still allowing daylight to filter into a space. Independent Control of Lift and Tilt combines smooth, quiet motion with independent control of lift and tilt, maintaining uniform positioning across adjacent blinds. Lutron Venetian blinds feature presets to recall a predetermined position and tilt for the ultimate in performance and style.
Fashion Honeycomb Shades
Fashion honeycomb shades add dimension to a space thanks to their cellular design, and their air pockets trap heat to provide superior insulation.
Tensioned shades provide solutions for skylights, bottom-up, and angled windows. The innovative design keeps fabric panels taut and parallel to windows with minimal sag at a variety of slopes. Lutron tensioned shades reduce light gaps around fabric, and maximize the view when opened by eliminating cable guides that are typical in skylight shades. The frame may be surface mounted, inside mounted, or recessed while still allowing easy access to update the fabric.
