On April 26th 30 dealers in Los Angeles gathered to learn about Lutron HomeworksQS product updates.Homeworks QS is Lutron's most powerful residential system that enables users to integrate interior and exterior lighting, audio-visual equipment, HVAC, and other broader control of the home environment.
"This particular training event was very interactive," said Kevin Berg Residential Specialist for Western Lighting & Energy Controls. "Integrators brought live plans to the class so we were able to walk out of the class working solutions that could immediately be applied to the job in question."
"We encourage all of our clients and prospective clients to reach out to us with project challenges." continued Berg, "Western Lighting & Energy Controls has a highly trained team of people who can help apply their expertise and experience to individual project challenges."

Additionally, to see "what's New" - we've highlighted some interesting updates below:
Google Assistant Integration
Lutron just announced a new integration with Google Home that allows homeowners to easily control their HomeWorks QS lighting systems using the Google Assistant, offering a greater flexibility and peace of mind. Now – with a few words – you can have hands-free assistance controlling lights in your connected home, whether you’re in your living room relaxing on the couch, or out of town on vacation.
Apple HomeKit Integration.
Now, thanks to the integration of Apple’s HomeKit with Lutron Connect Bridge and App – the essential links between a HomeWorks QS system and the Lutron cloud – homeowners can select up to 99 lutron devices (lights and shades) to be controlled through the Apple Home app, Siri and third-party HomeKit apps on iPhones and iPads. An Apple TV is required to control accessories remotely.
Note: Requires CONNECT-BDG2-X
Directly control a HomeWorks QS system using voice. No need to press a button to adjust light, shade, or temperature control scenes. Simply tell Alexa to do it for you: Alexa, turn on Dining.

Sonos Endorsed Integration
Directly control any Sonos Home Sound System alongside Lutron lights, shades, and temperature using HomeWorks QS keypads, the Lutron Connect app, or the New! Pico remote for audio. Even incorporate audio into scenes to create the perfect Welcome – turn lights on to 50%, raise shades, set temperature to a comfortable 75 degrees, and play your favorite music station.
