Legrand Rounds Out Its Home System Offering With the Addition of RF Lighting Controls


Lighting control line offers options for new construction or retrofit, and energy-saving features

Harrisburg , PA , Sept. 10, 2009 – Legrand Home Systems announced today the launch of RF Lighting Controls, a new line of wired and wireless lighting control products that offer safety, security, convenience and energy efficiency.  RF Lighting Controls enable automation and dimming for complete control of permanent lighting as well as lamps, ceiling fans and small appliances.

“Legrand Home Systems is taking a more active role in lighting control with the addition of RF Lighting Controls to the On-Q product line,” said Dave Hanchette, vice president of marketing for Legrand Home Systems.  “This line will add a new dimension to our home systems offerings, and the retrofit capabilities and energy saving benefits truly resonate with today’s homeowners.” 

The RF Lighting Controls line will include controllers, dimmers, plug-in modules, repeaters, and remote controls and key fobs for convenient access.  The system incorporates and saves “scenes,” or pre-set lighting levels, that the homeowner can select to create the ambiance of their choice.  

The system will be available in a clean design to complement other On-Q product lines such as the Classic and Studio Collections.  Available colors include white, light almond, ivory, black, gloss black and titanium.  

Some of the capabilities of RF Lighting Controls include the following:

Safety and Security
Control as many lights in the home as desired from anywhere in the home
Turn lights in the whole house on or off with one touch
Turn on entry lights to the home before entering
Alert neighbors of a problem with the panic feature
Make the home look lived in, even when you are not at home
Easily integrate lighting controls with alarm and fire systems

Convenience
Coordinate control of lamps, ceiling fans and small appliances
Create scenes to fit your activities and lifestyle
Control the system from a chair or bedside with handheld remote controls

Energy Savings
Save electricity by providing only the amount of light needed
Reduce energy by using lights only where and when they are needed
Corroborate with Title 24 Energy savings to maximize lighting efficiency in the home

RF Lighting Controls are effortlessly installed by replacing an existing switch or dimmer.  The system uses standard wall box mounting with no control wires, training or software required.  The lighting controls easily integrate with third-party products and scale well, handling up to 127 rooms and 1,023 devices.

The RF Lighting Controls line will begin shipping in October of 2009.  For more information visit www.onqlegrand.com.
