Lutron Electronics Expands Caséta Wireless Capabilities to Control Select Ceiling Fans

Caséta Wireless users can now control HomeKit-enabled Hunter Fan
Company ceiling fans from the Lutron App, providing easy access to fans
from anywhere inside or outside the home

COOPERSBURG, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lutron
Electronics
, a recognized leader in the smart home industry, today
announced the compatibility of its affordably-priced Caséta
Wireless system
with the new Wi-Fi® and Apple® HomeKit™-enabled Symphony
and Signal
ceiling fans from Hunter®
Fan Company
. Available now for $299 and $349, respectively, these
are the first HomeKit-enabled ceiling fans on the market with more
models to follow soon.


Last year, the Caséta Wireless system was hailed as one of the first Apple
HomeKit
-enabled products on the market. Now, using the Lutron App,
homeowners can easily adjust their Hunter Symphony and Signal
ceiling fans (including the light) to a preferred setting, and easily
set the perfect scene with other lights and shades. Caséta Wireless
users can also use convenient voice control – simply tell Siri, “Turn on
the fan,” or “Dim the family room light to 50 percent.”

Lutron launched the Caséta Wireless Smart Bridge and dimmers as a quick
and easy way to control lights, shades, temperature, and now audio, from
anywhere inside or outside the home (even while on vacation), enhancing
home comfort and security.

“Lutron creates great homeowner experiences,” said Matt Swatsky,
director of product management at Lutron Electronics. “It’s all about
making life easier. With our products you can control lights, shades,
temperature and audio with an easy-to-use app on a smart device. Giving
homeowners the ability to control their ceiling fans from the convenient
Lutron app, or from Siri, is just a natural extension of the way Lutron
approaches comfort and convenience within the home.”

“Hunter Fan is excited to work with Lutron to offer this next generation
of control,” said Jeremy Tarr, Director of Business Development at
Hunter Fan Company. “Our fans efficiently enhance comfort and contribute
to the ambiance of the room along with many other devices. Now, with the
Caséta Wireless system, consumers can easily adjust all of those
elements to personalize their environment.”
