Legrand’s Vantage Lighting Fixture Alliance Notes Continued Growth
Legrand’s lighting control brand Vantage announced that its lighting fixture alliance has been a marked success with continued growth. Introduced in 2021, the alliance enables partnerships with leading light fixture manufacturers to provide AV installers, interior designers, architects and other home design professionals with color-tunable fixtures to fit any project need and seamlessly integrate with Vantage’s LHUMAN human-centric lighting (HCL) solution.
Vantage’s lighting alliance was developed to “provide numerous benefits: freedom of design, fixture testing and calibrated CCT alignment.” Vantage says it tests every fixture and creates tunable profiles to take the guesswork out of control. During testing, the company also analyzes each fixture and creates color mapping tables. This allows the dealer to program the fixtures to go to a specific Correlated Color Temperature value and to have multiple fixture models in the same room or the entire home that are aligned to a shared CCT value. The growing alliance includes Circa Lighting, Colorbeam Lighting, DMF Lighting, ELEMENT fixtures from Tech Lighting, Environmental Lights, LF Illumination, Lucifer Lighting, No. 8 Lighting, Proluxe by American Lighting, PureEdge Lighting, Soraa Lighting and WAC’s AiSPiRE.
For projects requiring human-centric lighting, LHUMAN claims to “make it easier than ever for integrators to deliver the benefits to their customers with seamless integration of Vantage lighting controls, Legrand Shading, and color-tunable light fixtures into one solution.” LHUMAN automatically adjusts a home’s light throughout the day, synchronized to the natural daylight from the sun — while making changes on the fly with preset scenes that deliver the “appropriate color temperature and intensity to meet their current activity, need or mood.” LHUMAN also integrates Legrand Shading with Vantage lighting control.
LHUMAN can be programmed with the latest version of Vantage’s programming software, Design Center. The software’s key features consist of new color load types, including warm/cool and warm/white/cool; new tunable profiles for fixture color loads; single-digit CCT value input; and enhanced security improvements.
