If there's one thing that separates Lutron from other lighting control and automation companies, it's that they don't do one-size-fits-all solutions. For most of us, the Lutron Caseta line of lighting control is a perfect fit: simple, elegant, easy to operate, and within the budget range of your average household. But if you're lucky enough to live the life of a one-percenter, you don't want the same lighting control solution available to the masses. You want something more like Lutron's new Alisse wall control.
Designed to be paired with the HomeWorks automation system, the new offering is available in one, two, and three-button configurations in up to three columns that users can customize to their exact needs. Made with a fingerprint-resistant and stain-proof material, the Alisse wall control is available in a multitude of metal finishes and painted metal colors. The buttons are mounted in a European, single-gang, square backbo with a thin profile that sits almost flush with the wall.

Lutron Electronics, the leader in lighting controls and automated shading solutions, announces the launch of the Alisse wall control for use with its HomeWorks whole-home automation system. Lutron reimagined every detail with the Alisse wall control--starting with its thin profile, broad range of hand-crafted finishes, and subtle illumination around the buttons--allowing it to perfectly complement any décor. With its powerful, game-changing technology and a flexible personalization and ordering process, the Alisse wall control is both delightful to use and simple to specify and install.
Precisely balanced design with meticulous attention to detail
Sam Chambers, Senior Director of Lutron's Residential Business discusses the company's scrupulous attention to detail, "At the heart of the Alisse wall control is Lutron's understanding that every detail matters when designing a home and that technology's role should be to enhance the design vision, not distract from it," he said. "The Alisse wall control's uncompromising approach to aesthetics through its craftsmanship, style, versatility, and harmonious form bring design visions to life in a beautiful way."
Lutron uses a hand finishing process to bring out the dimension and hues of the genuine materials and offers a range of signature metal finishes that stretch across the style continuum. Each finish is thoughtfully matched with crisp engraving filled with carefully coordinated ink as well as a complementary thin, glowing halo around the buttons to complete the look. The Alisse wall control's plate form is perfectly balanced, featuring a sleek, thin profile that protrudes less than 1/8th of an inch from the wall.
Personalization made flexible
The Alisse wall control offers several personalization options--including custom engraving and multiple button configurations--but does so in an incredibly innovative way.
Lutron decoupled the wall plate, button configuration, and finish selection from the installation and programming process to allow the base unit to be ordered, installed, and programmed independent of the Alisse wall control plate, which easily snaps on when the button configuration, finish selection, and engraving details have been finalized. This approach allows homeowners to make both design choices and changes up until the end of the installation.
Lutron also provides a protective cover plate for the base unit to prevent damage from construction debris and created a suite of e-tools to make ordering of products and customizations quick and easy.
Additional features of the Alisse wall control include:
"Lutron considered every detail when designing this product," said Chambers. "We imagined an elegant form, machined from a solid metal plate, and hand finished and grained to perfection with just a hint of powerful technology. But we didn't stop there. Our teams thought about how they could innovate in every aspect of the product and make design, ordering, installation, and programming better for everyone."
