How can you make every office, school, or university campus an efficient, comfortable, and productive place to work or learn?

Vive Is The Answer

Vive by Lutron is a simple, scalable, wireless control that can be installed in a single space or throughout an entire campus. It’s designed to meet today’s energy codes, be used in new construction or retrofit situations, and meet your budgetary needs.

And with a wide family of products – including sensors, remotes, load controls, and an available software management suite — Vive provides the flexibility to select the products you want and handle any on-site challenges with ease.

Why Choose Vive

Scalable Solutions

Vive wireless solutions offer a multi-strategy approach that accommodates your budget and performance needs now and for the future of your building. Start from a single space and easily expand to the whole floor, multiple floors to the entire building without requiring redesign or manufacturer start-up. 

Maximize Productivity and Building Performance

Vive wireless solutions allow you to easily monitor, adjust, and manage your system from any smart device. Easily adjust the lighting control to accommodate building churn, improve occupant comfort, and enhance energy efficiency.  Lutron solutions alone can save 60% or more lighting energy. 

Easy Installation and Integration

Vive is a simple, modular wireless lighting control solution for new and existing commercial buildings. With Vive wireless products, you can install a switch and sensor in as little as 15 minutes. And since no new wiring is required, you won’t disrupt occupants in the space.

Reduce Risk

Simple, intuitive programming allows flexible programming, minimizing risk during the project life cycle. With wireless communication at each fixture the electrical contractor or facility team can easily modify zoning and sensing options for an individual fixture or group/area of fixtures with a few clicks from any mobile device.

Power Packs

Lutron PowPaks offer unparallel versatility as lighting control modules. They work for both retrofit and new construction, allowing for easy upgrade of any building into a smart building. They can be wired into a junction box or into a marshalling box for maximum flexibility.

Add a Vive wireless hub to enable simple setup and rezoning, system monitoring, timeclock functionality, and advanced integration.

  • General purpose switch (all lighting loads; receptacles)
  • Receives input from up to 9 Pico wireless controls, 6 Radio Powr Savr occupancy/vacancy sensors, and 1 Radio Powr Savr daylight sensor

In-Wall Switches and Dimmers

Maestro Wireless load controls, wireless sensors, and wireless remote controls provide a system that delivers energy savings, convenience, and ease of installation. Maestro Wireless dimmers and switches use Lutron patented Clear Connect RF Technology, which enables wireless communication with Radio Powr Savr sensors and Pico remote controls for light control and general switched loads. These products are also compatible with the Vive hub which enables a simple setup process using a standard web browser on any Wi-Fi enabled phone, tablet or computer. It also enables control and monitoring of all Vive devices. The Vive hub can be added at any time.

Pico Wireless Remotes

Adjust lights, shades, or audio from anywhere in a space with a Pico wireless control. This versatile and easy-to-use control requires no wires and is compatible with a wide variety of Lutron lighting, automated window treatment solutions, and audio systems.

  • Configure for use as a wall-mount control, table‐top control, car visor control, or handheld control.
  • Easily add a new or additional point of control without the need for new wires.
  • Fits inside a standard decorator opening faceplate.

Ceiling Occupancy/Vacancy Sensors

 Wasted lighting can account for a majority of a building’s total energy usage. And with many building spaces remaining unoccupied between 40% and 70% of the day, lights left on are a real energy drain. Lutron wireless occupancy/vacancy sensors automate the switching and dimming of those lights, saving energy and money.

Going wireless eliminates the need for costly new wiring. Radio Powr Savr sensors by Lutron install in as little as 15 minutes and communicate with compatible Lutron dimmers, switches and light control systems using reliable Clear Connect RF Technology, which ensures smooth, consistent performance.

Lutron wireless sensors reduce installation time by over 70%* over wired options.
