Lutron introduces the Residential Advantage Contractor Program

Lutron Electronics, the leader in energy-saving, wireless lighting and shade control, today announced its new Residential Advantage Contractor (RAC) Program for electrical contractors looking to take full advantage of the hottest trends in smart lighting and LED dimming. Whether it’s learning about how to stay on top of the connected home opportunity, minimizing the risk of callbacks with reliable LED controls, or providing convenience and energy savings with occupancy sensors – contractors will gain valuable information that will help them grow their businesses.

By attending the free, two-hour RAC Training, contractors will receive all of the information and tools they need to meet the growing demand for energy-saving products and smart home solutions.

With the rapid adoption of smart phones and tablets, homeowners are making these devices the new point of control for their homes. This connected home revolution creates a huge opportunity for contractors to position themselves ahead of the competition by providing simple, affordable, and reliable wireless control of lights, shades and temperature with innovative solutions like Caséta® Wireless from Lutron.

In addition, contractors will learn about how to future-proof their LED installations with reliable dimmers designed to work with dimmable LEDs, CFLs, incandescent and halogen lamps. While LEDs are being adopted at greater rates every day, there is still considerable customer confusion when it comes to LED bulb compatibility and dimming performance.

Saving energy continues to be top-of-mind for many homeowners. RAC training also provides vital information about Lutron Maestro® in-wall sensors - a simple home automation solution that provides customers with convenience and energy savings through elegantly-designed occupancy sensors.

After attending a RAC training, contractors will automatically become members of the Lutron RAC Program and receive one year access to exclusive program benefits including:

1. Program logo and certificate

2. Exclusive promotions and specials

3. Business-building tips designed to increase sales

4. Full access to Residential Advantage tools and resources on a customized contractor portal: www.lutron.com/ResiAdvantage

“With this outstanding training program, Lutron is bringing the connected home opportunity directly to the contractor. Homeowners often turn to trusted, preferred professional installers for these types of solutions and we want to see our contractor network succeed in this growing space,” said Brian Donlon, Sales Vice President North America, at Lutron.

The RAC program is currently available in the U.S. and Canada.
