Yesterday Customised attended LuxLive, Europe's biggest annual lighting event.

Held at ExCel London, the venue was packed with many fantastic lighting technology stands, brands and visitors. As well as over 100 expert speakers, covering crucial topics including emergency lighting, safer cities, lighting for transport and infrastructure, workplace and wellbeing lighting and much more. One of the stands there was Lutron, a brand that we both provide and love. We at customised were looking forward to seeing all of the latest lighting tech but something was always going to grab our attention a little bit more than the rest and that was the new RA2 Select lighting system by Lutron.

So, just what does this brilliant bit of equipment do? The RA2 Select is a whole-home lighting and shading control system designed to meet the needs of any residential property. The new system is configured by default and easily personalised by the homeowner. Recommended lighting and shading scenes are automatically created as each device is added to the system, improving speed of installation and ease of use. The simple, fast and flexible system provides smart home capabilities, personalised control and added convenience for the homeowner. A free app allows users to monitor and adjust lights and blinds on their smart device wherever they are, offering complete control. 

RA2 Select also seamlessly integrates with other smart home technologies bringing added simplicity to the smart home, including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, The Google Assistant, Honeywell Wi-Fi Thermostats, Nest and Sonos….which is exactly why we love it even more! If you would like to find out more about the RA2 Select then please do get in touch with us.

We had a great time yesterday, meeting lots of interesting people and finding out about all of the latest lighting systems that are developing all of the time, making our lives easier, smarter and cheaper. Thank you to all who made it a top day and be sure to check out our social media channels for videos, pictures and much more from LuxLive 2018.

See you all again at next years!
