With an extensive history of growth and innovation, Lutron is driven by both people and technology. Currently, the company offers 15,000 products and holds more than 2700 patents worldwide.

Lutron was the first company to mass-market the dimmer successfully and is still the only company to manufacture dimmer systems and motorized window shades that control both electric light and daylight.
Continuing its legacy, Lutron has hundreds of stand-alone dimmers and switches for residential and commercial use. With the phase out of incandescent light bulbs, consumers are turning towards more energy-efficient lighting sources such as LED and CFL. With a compatible dimmer, LEDs and CFLs can be effectively dimmed and saves even more energy. Beyond providing functionality and convenience, dimmers and switches further help to reduce energy consumption. These products have multiple designs, including architectural, designer and traditional styles, as well as lamp dimmers, in order to fit seamlessly within any area.
The company also offers timers to automatically turn lights, fans and other electrical devices off after a preset time. Timers are extremely energy-efficient due to their ability to conserve energy in residential and commercial settings. In addition to timers and dimmers, Lutron occupies a top position on the market for providing light fixtures and ballasts. Among these offerings are EcoSystem ballasts, which are available in NEMA Premium models which follow the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) standards for high-performance lamps and ballasts.
