Lutron Electronics Acquires Ketra, Smart Lighting and Controls

Lutron Electronics has signed an agreement to acquire Ketra, whose Natural Light solutions provide the highest-quality light — light that seamlessly emulates daylight in interior spaces.

Founded in 2009 in Austin, Texas, Ketra offers lighting and control solutions that deliver beautiful, customizable light in residential and commercial environments. Ketra’s selection of light sources creates high-quality white, pastels and saturated colors, which enhance the look of any space and allow you to precisely tailor the light to meet the needs of the space. For example, enjoy a bright, energizing light in your office – or a warm, comforting light in your living room.

Ed Blair, Lutron senior vice-president, said it was a natural extension for Lutron to expand its product portfolio with Ketra light sources and controls. “This acquisition allows Lutron to take care of its customers with the most comprehensive portfolio of light control solutions in the industry. Moreover, it uniquely positions Lutron for the greatest success in the market’s areas of growth, like simulated natural light, smart homes and buildings and tunable white.”

Ketra light sources are compatible with the Lutron HomeWorks QS total home control system and Lutron Quantum total light management system.

Ketra products are sold through select U.S.-based lighting showrooms and A/V dealers. You can learn more about their entire line here.
