Lutron + Ketra: The Future of Lighting Control

Over the past few years, innovations in lighting control have enabled homeowners and business owners to be incredibly creative in designing and lighting their interior spaces. Leading the way in this trend has been Lutron, a lighting control system unlike any other, and one that Smart Touch has been proudly installing for years.

The only thing that could improve on unmatched lighting control is unmatched lighting. For that reason, in 2018, Lutron acquired Ketra, a state-of-the-art lighting system that takes home and business lighting solutions to the next level. Now, Smart Touch is proud to be a certified Ketra dealer, enabling us to combine the power of Lutron with the brilliance of Ketra lighting to provide our clients the ultimate combination of lighting options and control features.

What Is Ketra?

Ketra is a state-of-the-art lighting system that provides unlimited options for dynamic lighting of interior spaces. Ketra’s lighting solutions are based on cutting-edge LED technology. LEDs are not only more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs, they can also provide a wide range of colors and brightness levels which allow users to create the perfect light for any occasion, mood, or activity. Ketra takes this range to the extreme with its High Def Palette, which covers an astounding 16.7 million colors, including pastels, saturated colors and high CRI whites spanning from 1,400K to 10,000K. Whether you’re looking to improve your productivity in the office or want to set the mood for a romantic dinner at home, Ketra offers perfect lighting solutions for each–plus the ability to change colors and brightness to adapt to any mood or use.

Set the “Scene”

Ketra lighting offers a never-before-seen range of lighting versatility where users can emulate natural daylight for maximum productivity during the day, or create mood lighting for a romantic date or a high-energy party–all within the same system. Choose from pre-set “scenes” designed to perfectly match each occasion, or program the lighting to shift undetectably throughout the day, following the Black Body Curve to emulate the ever-changing natural light.

Ketra also offers unique features such as color temperature tuning, which allows users to change the white light output of their fixtures to better match their surroundings. This feature is perfect for those who want to add a touch of warmth to their home or office without having to sacrifice the energy efficiency of LED lighting.

Layered Lighting for Visual Interest

Another key feature of the Ketra system is the ability to design room lighting using multiple layers. This means that you can create different light “zones” within a single space, each with its own color, brightness, and direction. For example, you could have accent lighting to highlight artwork or architectural features, task lighting for perfect clarity while working or cooking, and general ambient lighting to provide a well-rounded sense of light throughout the space.

From the office to the home, Ketra lighting provides an incredible range of possibilities for those who want the perfect light for any occasion. With unmatched color rendering, energy efficiency, and control options, Ketra is the future of lighting. And with Lutron’s industry-leading lighting control systems, you can have total confidence that your space will always look its best.
