Welcome to Equippd Recommends, where we dissect and analyse tech products that we are genuinely impressed by and know you will love. We are not paid to endorse these products – we are writing about them because we think they will enhance your lives. This time, we sing the praises of Lutron’s Alisse lighting control system.
Sleek, stylish and slick, the latest offering from Lutron is definitely the thinking person’s lighting control solution.
The Alisse wall control range is a super-stylish way to adjust your lights and control your connected blinds and shades. It’s a cut above Lutron’s other offerings, such as the Caseta line of lighting control, which is simple, elegant and easy to operate but more within the budget range of your average household.
And this is what separates Lutron from other lighting control and automation companies: it doesn’t do one size fits all. If you’re after something more refined, bespoke and luxurious that’s still intuitive and easy to use, then look no further than the Alisse.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with the HomeWorks whole-home automation system for a simple and reliable experience, the Alisse wall control is super-skinny at just 3.2 mm thick and available in a range of finishes, styles, shapes, sizes and configurations.
First off, the range looks really beautiful. The exclusive-to-Alisse Signature Metal Collection offers a sophisticated palette of handcrafted metal finishes (aged bronze, aged brass, brushed brass, champagne, satin nickel, graphite, and bright chrome) and painted metal colours (matte black, brilliant white, snow white and architectural white) means there’ll be something to suit your home. A subtle glow around the buttons complements your décor.
And don’t worry about the kids’ sticky fingers besmirching the pretty finish. The range uses a proprietary preservation process that’s resistant to wear, fingerprints and stains but doesn’t compromise the luxurious feeling of the material.
Best of all, you can personalise your touch switches to fit your lifestyle. Custom engrave yours with text or illustrative icons to denote your favourite lighting scenes and choose from one, two or three columns of buttons to suit the needs of your space, whatever its size. If you want to change the label of your buttons, you can – the base unit is installed and programmed independent of the front plate, which simply snaps on and off.
It’s thoughtful technology, integrated by design – and that is why we recommend the Alisse. If you’re up and running with HomeWorks and would like to upgrade, get in touch and we’ll help you with the installation process.
