Alliance Pairs Vantage’s Customizable Lighting Controls With AiSPiRE’s Human-Centric Luminaires to Deliver End-to-End Dynamic Lighting Solution
CARLSBAD, Calif. — May 5, 2021 — Legrand’s Building Control Systems division today announced that its Vantage brand has formed a strategic alliance with WAC’s AiSPiRE brand. The alliance pairs Vantage’s industry-leading, customizable lighting controls with AiSPiRE’s human-centric luminaires to create a comprehensive low and high voltage solution.
AiSPiRE’s lighting fixtures are tuned to create vibrancy using light from the full visible color spectrum. When combined with the ease of programming provided by Vantage’s Design Center software suite, integrators can create customized lighting scenes that provide seamless pairing to AiSPiRE luminaires. With Vantage’s InFusion Controller, the end-to-end solution enables control of saturation, hue, intensity, and color temperature via standard DMX protocols. This allows for the rendering of near-perfect natural light tones capable of tracking the sun’s light throughout the day — all from the simple button press of a Vantage keypad or an astronomical event timer.
“With human-centric lighting programming readily available, and stunning keypad designs, Vantage provides best-in-class lighting control solutions,” said Dave Keller, Vice President of Sales, Vantage. “Paired with AiSPiRE integration-only lighting products, which combine elegant aesthetics with advanced functionality, this alliance makes it easier than ever for integrators to bring dynamic lighting to their clients.”
“We are proud to collaborate with Vantage Controls for this strategic alliance, the goal of which is to provide integrators with an end-to-end solution for elevating the human experience through lighting design and interactivity,” said Patrick Laidlaw, Director of Business Development -Integration for AiSPiRE Lighting. “Together, our lighting and control tools allow them to paint with light and effortlessly customize a scene — whether it’s accenting works of art with downlights or programming garden lights to follow the sun — to bring any space to life.”
As part of the Alliance, Vantage and AiSPiRE have also introduced the Brighter Together Dealer Profit Promotion (DPP). Through the DPP, projects featuring both Vantage and AiSPiRE products will receive a 5% discount from both brands when the order is placed. To qualify for the promotion — which runs through July 30 — projects must be registered by dealers or their sales representatives here.
