Vantage Controls teams up with WAC Lighting for end-to-end, human-centric lighting

Vantage Controls, a brand of Legrand | AV Residential Solutions, has announced a new collaboration with LED luminaire and technology manufacturer, WAC Lighting, to provide integrators with end-to-end, human-centric lighting (HCL).

Designed for high-end luxury homes, Vantage’s advanced lighting control capabilities are combined with the Lumenetix araya5 light engine built into WAC’s tuneable, low-voltage LED lighting fixtures. 

To provide HCL, the Vantage controller is programmed to match the sunrise and sunset schedule shift throughout the year that best supports people’s natural circadian rhythm based on the location of each installation. 

Homeowners can press a button to override the programming at any time with scenic presets. The Vantage platform is compatible with DMX or 0V to 10V protocols, providing intuitive single-button control of whichever technology is behind the LED source.

This partnership is Vantage’s latest push to foster relationships with lighting fixture manufacturers that utilise the Lumenetix araya5 light engine. 

These fixtures replicate natural daylight to enhance aesthetics, comfort, wellness and visual perception, giving integrator an end-to-end LED lighting solution that is easily installed and maintained, energy-efficient, and synchronised with the human circadian clock. 

Mark Moody, product manager, Vantage Controls, said: “We’re proud to add WAC Lighting to our growing list of lighting fixture collaboration partners. By combining our advanced lighting control with the power of Lumenetix and WAC in convenient, easy-to-install systems, these partnerships make it simple for integrators to add HCL to their service offering and meet the growing demand for these systems in residential environments.”

“The team at Vantage has fulfilled its due diligence completing the testing of our low-voltage LED luminaires with their controls,” adds Shelley Walk, president of WAC Lighting. “Our Aether Colour Changing line of recessed down lights performed seamlessly, while providing the user with complete control and tunability of beautiful lighting throughout the space.”
