We’ve all seen the T-shirts: “Doesn’t Play Well With Others.” It’s kind of funny if someone wears one to work on casual Friday. It’s no laughing matter, however, when it describes different products that need to work together to create an integrated lighting or energy control system in a commercial setting.
In order to deliver the kind of solution your commercial customers want, all the parts of the system need to play well together. Your clients may be impressed with what the system you’re suggesting promises, but one of the biggest questions you’ll face is, “Will it work with what I’ve already got?”
That’s one of the reasons we recommend Lutron products for so many commercial installations. Lutron is committed to providing best-in-class products and solutions that offer superior performance—along with world-class service and support. Whether it’s the seamless integration of Lutron light and shade control products, or integration with third-party products and systems, Lutron solutions allow you to offer your clients the reliability and convenient control required for today’s demanding applications.
While you can offer a Lutron lighting control solution for almost every need—from a single dimmer to a whole building system—integration options are available for practically every application as well. Whether your client is looking for a touch screen and A/V equipment in a conference room, patient controls in a hospital or even building management systems, Lutron provides reliable options for many integration needs.
And Lutron works with many third-party manufacturers to ensure that their systems integrate reliably with other products. They also provide documentation, product and technical support to many manufacturers to ensure that the system you specify or install will work with a wide variety of third-party systems.
So when your client asks if the system you’re proposing will work with what he already has, you’ll be able to assure him that it will. Contact me if you have questions about integrating a new Lutron system with an existing system or products on an installation. I’ll be happy to help you find a solution that plays well with others.
