Lutron has launched Lutron PRO, a new programme to assist smart home professionals looking to boost their business with smart lighting and motorised blind solutions.

The UK smart home market is experiencing exponential growth, with revenue projected to reach £4.1 billion by the end of the year, and connected home products, lighting controls, thermostats, blinds, audio controls and more, are driving demand.

As a result, homeowners are turning to electrical professionals to deliver the complete connected-home experience.

The Lutron PRO programme has been designed to help residential contractors grow their business with Lutron, through direct engagement with their local distributors and sales representatives. By participating in the programme, integrators will be better positioned to exceed their customers’ expectations, says the company.

As part of the Lutron PRO programme members will have access to exclusive training resources and marketing materials through a personalised myLutron account.

Lutron PRO members will be eligible for a company listing on Lutron’s Where to Buy website for the products they are qualified to install.
Members can also boost training and development beyond the RA2 Select residential products, with the option to take training courses on other products within the Lutron portfolio including HomeWorks, for luxury residential projects and Vive, for commercial opportunities.
Customers who choose Lutron PRO contractors will also qualify for an additional year of full extended warranty on all eligible, registered projects.

“We live in a connected world, and homeowners expect to control all aspects of their lives, including their smart home technology, from their devices. Today, a contractor’s success will largely depend on being seen as a trusted advisor that is able to meet these expectations,” says Steven Detmer, Residential Product Manager at Lutron. “The Lutron PRO programme offers us the opportunity to provide contractors with the training and support necessary to capitalise on this growing market opportunity.”

Sam Brown, Director at SRB Electrical & Security LTD enjoys using Lutron products in both his own home and educating his clients. He said: “As a small company we were looking for new products to help us bring modern smart lighting controls into the home and the commercial sector. We decided to invest in learning about Lutron’s RA2 Select & Vive solutions, by buying products and installing in our own home and workplace. Having this first-hand experience helps us educate our customers on the benefits of these products, including how reliable, flexible and simple they are to understand and use.”

Andrea Giammaria, Director at RTEQ London Ltd adds: “These systems are a win-win for installers and clients alike. Both easy to install and easy to operate. Using the Lutron Clear Connect Wireless technology, it is possible to install a system for a 3-bedroom apartment in just one day, with minimal disturbance. We also install Lutron for older clients and others with limited mobility, so that they can have full control of lights and blinds without getting up, either through the use of the wireless Pico remote, their phone or even their voice.”
