Lutron Electronics Co. Inc., the world leader in lighting control, has taken this technology into the residential market with the introduction of a new dimming range. Designed to be simply retrofitted, the new range has sleek lines with signature Lutron styling that brings an affordable solution to quality dimming in the home.

There are five products in the dimming range, including Lyneo, Lutron's basic slide dimmer and Solina a discrete floor and table lamp dimmer which can fade lamps on and off with a simple tap - while memorising the last light level set. The range also includes Rania and Rania IR, which are multi -location dimmers that are both operated by the touch of a button and when switched back on, the dimmer memorises the last lighting level chosen. Universal dimming options are also available on the Rania range that auto -sense the load type - both low voltage and incandescent sources.

In addition, Rania features green LEDs to indicate the current light levels in the room and the Rania IR dimmer comes with a remote control. With load capabilities up to 500w, Lutron's new dimming range offers flexibility as well as high performance.

With a range of finishes from white to chrome and nickel, the dimming range has been designed with ease of use and ultimate choice in mind. A comprehensive range of accessories will shortly also be available to co -ordinate the finish and colour of wallplates and jacks with the dimmers.

The product range is being supported by a high -profile consumer media campaign to encourage end -users to think beyond the normal light -switch. In addition, Lutron is offering installers and specifiers the chance to visit their training facilities in London to see how using the new range can increase earning potential as well as offer end -users increased flexibility.

Alongside Lutron's two year warranty on all the products in the range, the company is also offering installers and specifiers a design and layout service. This ensures that not only does the lighting control strategy fulfil the end users' requirements, but that it also meets all the latest environmental design criteria.

Susan Fox, Business Leader, International Wallbox Products comments: "We have developed this new range of products because there has been an ever -growing interest in lighting control technology from the wider consumer market. With the increase in usage of home cinemas and surround sound, consumers are expecting more and more from their homes. Lutron's new dimming range, enables installers and specifiers alike to extend lighting control solutions to users who would traditionally have seen this technology as out of reach".
