​Lutron Electronics, Coopersburg, Pa., recently launched the Residential Advantage Contractor (RAC) program for electrical contractors to help them learn more about smart lighting, LED dimming and business opportunities in the connected home. The free two-hour RAC training course will help contractors grow their businesses by teaching them about  the connected home opportunity; how to minimize the risk of callbacks with reliable LED controls; and provide convenience and energy savings with occupancy sensors.

Lutron said with the rapid adoption of smart phones and tablets homeowners are making these devices the new point of control for their home and that this connected home revolution creates a huge opportunity for contractors to position themselves ahead of the competition by providing simple, affordable, and reliable wireless control of lights, shades and temperature. In addition, contractors will learn about how to future-proof their LED installations with reliable dimmers designed to work with dimmable LEDs, CFLs, incandescent and halogen lamps.

After attending RAC training, contractors will automatically become members of the Lutron RAC Program and receive one-year access to exclusive program benefits including: a program logo and certificate; exclusive promotions and specials; business-building tips designed to increase sales; and full access to RAC tools and resources on a customized contractor portal --

“Lutron is bringing the connected home opportunity directly to the contractor,” said Brian Donlon, sales V.P. North America, in the press release. “Homeowners often turn to trusted, preferred professional installers for these types of solutions, and we want to see our contractor network succeed in this growing space.”
