Coopersburg, PA (December 17, 2015) – Lutron Electronics, makers of energy-saving, wireless lighting and shade controls, is announcing the Connected Bulb Remote Control, which provides instant and direct control of compatible, connected LED bulbs without the need for a smart phone. The product release comes on the heels of the recent announcement that a quarter billion smart lamps will be shipped to homes annually by 2020.
The Connected Bulb Remote Control uses ZigBee wireless technology and can control up to 30 compatible connected LED bulbs with a single remote, eliminating the need to locate, unlock, and use a phone to control the lights. The Connected Bulb Remote Control can also be paired with select smart home systems, giving users smart phone control of lights while away, and the remote control while at home. For example, use the smart phone to turn lights on before arriving home at night, and the remote control to adjust lights while at home in bed or on the couch.
Its slim design means the remote can fit inside a standard decorator wallplate opening and be easily attached to the wall as a stand-alone control, or seamlessly integrated next to existing dimmers and switches. Options are also available for attaching it to a car visor or tabletop pedestal. The remote is available now at The Home Depot U.S. and Canada, Homedepot.com and Amazon.com with a suggested retail price of $30.
