Lutron: Athena expansion

Athena, the highly-awarded lighting and shading solution from Lutron that powers next-level lighting experiences is getting even better.

A brand new touchscreen now gives you easy access to customise the environments.

Behind the scene, Athena’s flexible DIN panels make it simple to control any load type under one system.

The system further expands with the new DALI emergency-testing feature built right into the Athena app.

Extended 3rd-party integration now allows Athena to communicate with BACnet for building management, and with audio and video devices via API.

Athena is now available in more than 20 countries worldwide.

Let the story of your space play out with the newly expanded Athena.
