Lutron's founder, Joel Spira, invented the first solid-state electronic dimmer in 1961. Today, more than 45 years later, the company is still devoted to controlling lighting, offering more than 15,000 products around the globe, from simple-to-install single light dimmers to sophisticated dimming systems that orchestrate a home's, or building's total lighting environment, inside and out, to automated shade and drapery control systems. Lutron holds over 2,700 worldwide patents. In addition to the solid-state dimmer, Lutron innovations also include the first electronic dimming ballast for fluorescent lights and the first self-contained preset lighting control system.

Product information: Most buildings today are over-lit because light levels are set higher than appropriate for the space, or spaces are lit even when they are unoccupied. This wastes energy, creates discomfort, and reduces productivity. Make your building work harder for you by adding intelligent, energy-efficient light control. Lutron provides flexible, scalable systems that can fully integrate lighting, shading, and sensors for maximum energy savings. These solutions can be easily designed, installed and reconfigured to meet the changing needs of your building.
