History

Lutron's story begins in the late 50s in the small laboratory in New York City. Mr. Spira, a physicist fascinated by the aesthetic manipulation of light, used an apartment room he shared with his wife Ruth to invent the first solid-state device that would allow people to regulate the intensity of the lights in their homes.
The result: The first solid-state attenuator

Since then, Lutron has become the world leader in the manufacture of lighting controls. Lutron control solutions vary from an individual dimmer to total lighting systems that handle entire buildings.

Lutron's solutions are installed everywhere, from small one-bedroom apartments to famous buildings such as the White House in the United States and Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom.

Lutron designs solutions that save energy in both commercial and residential applications. Its controls for lighting, temperature, blinds and for plug-in devices, can operate independently or together to provide maximum energy savings, be it a room, multiple rooms, an entire house or a complete building.

In most offices, lighting uses more electricity than any other system. Using electrical and natural lighting controls, energy consumption in lighting can be reduced up to 65%.
