Snap One will go “Beyond the Bulb” by bringing its latest lighting products and knowledge to Home Technology Specialists of America’s (HTSA) Lightapalooza 2023, the second annual lighting-focused event where leading vendors showcase their technologies and provide educational opportunities to HTSA members. The show takes place in Phoenix, Arizona February 20-23, 2023 at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa.
In addition to demonstrating the powerful new Control4® Vibrant® Linear Lighting series of LED lighting solutions, Snap One will highlight Control4’s wide third-party compatibility and host two training sessions where attendees can expand their lighting sales and design skills. This is Snap One’s first year offering a brand-new “Light Sources” category and attendees will be able to speak with Snap One’s lighting and automation experts at Booth #308 throughout the show.
“After seeing the industry response to the inaugural Lightapalooza in 2022, we are excited to connect with leading integrators and help spread awareness of the new capabilities and integrations offered by the new Control4 linear lighting solutions,” Nick Meloni, Product Marketing Manager at Snap One said. “Attendees can also learn about the expansive compatibility of the Control4 system, which can easily integrate a wide variety of third-party lighting solutions and empower lighting integrators who want to expand into home control and automation.”
Control4’s new Vibrant Linear Lighting provides Snap One Partners with a complete line of controllable LED tape that offers fixed color in a variety of temperatures, warm dim, tunable white, RGBW, and RGB + tunable white options, along with all the accessories needed to create sophisticated lighting experiences. Partners can design complex lighting scenes that are activated by the press of a button, a voice command, a pre-programmed schedule or even based on the position of the sun.
With endless possibilities to create different ambiences, Vibrant Linear Lighting can deliver a more immersive experience and enrich customers’ lifestyles and well-being. The line can also be programmed to support circadian health, a growing wellness pursuit that mimics Earth’s natural cycles with bright, cool light during the day that slowly dims and warms in the evening.
In addition to personalized wellness experiences, the Vibrant Linear Lighting line is designed to ensure a simple and professional-looking installation, which is achieved through aluminum extrusions for mounting, translucent lenses to soften and diffuse light and Zigbee, DMX or DALI modules that provide reliable control of color and lighting temperature settings. Plus, available power supplies range from 30 Watts to 300 Watts to fit the needs of each room and project.
The company is also quick to note that its vision of an interoperable Control4 home is made possible by consistently pursuing broad compatibility with third-party products, including lighting systems.
“If Lightapalooza is like a playground for CI pros and lighting integrators, then Control4 is the friendliest kid around – it plays well with everyone,” Meloni added. “We know that every job has different demands and expectations, and that every integrator has favored products, so we constantly update the Control4 automation system to be compatible with an amazing array of third-party products from lighting to security solutions. In fact, many of the respected lighting brands sharing the Lightapalooza floor with us can be integrated perfectly into a Control4-powered home.”
Attendees can register for the show and Snap One’s two educational sessions here. Session One, titled Effectively Selling Linear Lighting, teaches integrators and technicians to positively communicate the benefits and value of lighting design and optimized lighting control to deliver profitable, client-pleasing installations.
Session Two, titled Integrating Lighting into Today’s Smart Living, discusses how smart home systems and smart lighting solutions combine to offer enhanced capabilities and quality of life for users. It will cover various use cases for integrated lighting and how lighting can form a part of more complex multi-system automations.
Snap One and Control4 experts will be on hand to discuss the new advantages of the Enhanced Lights Page and Daylighting options in Control4 OS 3.3.2. In addition to the Vibrant Linear Lighting and Control4 automation products, visitors to the Snap One booth can experience and learn about the Control4 Halo family of remote controls, wireless Zigbee pucks and new metal faceplate options for contemporary style keypads.
