Whole-house music system manufacturer Autonomic has introduced an integration between the company’s Mirage Audio System—including the Mirage Media Server and accompanying Mirage digital amplifiers—and the Lutron HomeWorks QS total home control system. The development will allow integrators to provide clients with simple and convenient control of their home audio environment through user-programmable scene presets on all Lutron HomeWorks QS compatible keypads, Autonomic said.
The Lutron QS system gives users control over lights, shades, and temperature, and integrates with third-party devices to offer a “seamless control experience.” And Autonomic and Lutron have collaborated to provide a “simple, yet powerful interface” for the Mirage Audio Systems, the companies explained in a statement. By pushing a single button, homeowners will be able to adjust the lights, shades, temperature, and play their favorite music.
“Any technology designer will tell you that implementing a simple but powerful user experience is among the most complex of engineering tasks,” Autonomic CEO Michael de Nigris, said in the statement. “Together with Lutron, our teams have developed a devilishly simple interface that belies the complexity that it took to bring it about. The ability to come home and simply press one button to initiate their favorite streaming station playing throughout the home at just the right volume will increase customer’s utilization and appreciation for what we have accomplished.”
Added Lutron New Business Alliances Director Mark Jenner: “The blending of music and light creates the perfect home environment. This simple, yet powerful, integration with Mirage Audio Systems provides Lutron customers with yet another way to create memorable experiences in their homes.”
