CARLSBAD, Calif. — Feb. 15, 2024 — Legrand’s Vantage and Legrand Shading Systems today announced their product lineup and learning sessions for Lightapalooza 2024. Held Feb. 26-29 at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel and Spa, it is the third annual lighting conference of Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA). A highlight of the Legrand booth will be the Experience Room, where installers can get a working demonstration of Vantage’s lighting control system integrated with Legrand Shading and many of the light fixture and keypad manufacturing partners within the Vantage Fixture and Keypad Alliances. In addition, Vantage’s Product Manager Aaron Severtson will present two free educational sessions during the show.

“Last year was our first Lightapalooza, and the response was phenomenal,” said Rob Doherty, Director of Business Development, Shading Systems | Vantage, Legrand North America. “As opportunities in residential lighting and shading continue to grow, we are committed to zeroing in on what installers and designers truly need to be successful. In our Experience Room, we will bring to life the kind of lighting experiences luxury homeowners are wanting and show how to attain that with great ease and freedom of design.”

At Lightapalooza 2024, installers won’t want to miss the latest developments in Vantage’s LHUMAN human-centric lighting (HCL) solution, LHUMAN KolorTune™. With LHUMAN KolorTune, intelligent lighting control becomes easier than ever with full color control and dimming of an extensive library of pretested tunable light fixtures from lighting fixture manufacturer partners. KolorTune offers the tunable, controllable profiles needed to create lighting scenes with tested and precise color temperatures. Available within Vantage’s Design Center software, installers simply select the chosen fixture(s), and Design Center will provide the defined fixture control details and color temperature mapping for the light fixture. Not only does this achieve super simple and fast programming, but it also allows Vantage’s control processor to provide the correct color mix, producing accurate color temperature and intensity for the lighting task selected. What’s more, designers can mix and match tunable fixtures in the room with the assurance that values will match from fixture to fixture for cohesive room lighting; and it supports 0-10V, DMX, and DALI control protocols.

Showcasing Vantage’s breadth of control, the Experience Room will contain tunable and static white fixtures from 11 partners in the Vantage Light Fixture Alliance, including AiSPiRE by WAC Lighting, DMF Lighting, Environmental Lights, LF Illumination, Lucetta by Elemental LED, Lucifer Lighting Company, Noº 8 Lighting, Proluxe by American Lighting, PureEdge Lighting, Tech Lighting by Visual Comfort Co., and WAC Lighting. The Light Fixture Alliance continues to grow and also includes Aculux, Colorbeam, Circa Lighting, Q-Tran, Soraa Lighting, and Specialty Lighting Industries. In addition, luxury keypads from Keypad Alliance member Meljac will also be demonstrated as well as the Vantage keypad collections and Vantage Keypad Demo Case for dealers. Other Keypad Alliance members include: Basalte, Black Nova, and Forbes & Lomax.

Legrand Shading Systems’ Dual QIS Shades will also be on display and integrated into the Vantage control system. Legrand’s Dual QIS Shades provide two shading options in one bracket. Legrand’s dual shading system is available in many supported bracket sizes, allowing for systems as narrow as 15.5” or as wide as 156” x 180”; with fascia, side channels, and sill angle options for additional light blockage; and in Legrand diverse fabric lineup. The booth will also highlight Legrand Shading’s Designer Series decorative brackets and hembar endcaps and the available dealer demo case.

Installers will also have the opportunity to further their lighting control knowledge with two manufacturer’s training opportunities from Legrand, led by Severtson, who has 30 years of experience in lighting design and AV integration. On Wednesday, from 10-11 a.m., attendees will learn more about Vantage LHUMAN KolorTune in the session, “Welcome to LHUMAN KolorTune: Building a Better Tunable Lighting Control Solution.” It will explore the intricacies of LHUMAN KolorTune technology, with attendees experiencing live lighting setups and real-time control adjustments. This session will provide the practical skills and insights needed to craft dynamic, responsive lighting environments that cater to the evolving needs of luxury spaces.

On Thursday, from 10-11 a.m., Vantage will hold its session, “Digital Control for Modern Lighting: Dissecting DALI and DMX.” Centered around an enlightening discussion about their respective advantages and limitations, this session offers an insightful comparison and contrast between DALI and DMX — two pivotal digital protocols in modern architectural lighting.
