Cambridge Sound Management and Lutron Electronics have announced a partnership that enables sound masking systems to activate automatically based on room occupancy.
The partnership was created “to help customers keep conversations in their conference rooms, huddle rooms, lobbies, or medical offices private and secure,” according to the joint announcement.
“Customers can now help protect speech privacy automatically by integrating the Qt Conference Room Edition and Qt Patient Privacy System sound masking solutions with the Lutron Radio Powr Savr occupancy sensor and the Lutron PowPak CCO module,” according to the press release.
The Qt Conference Room system is a sound masking solution targeted for meeting rooms, board rooms and huddle rooms and the Qt Patient Privacy system is targeted for reception areas and patient rooms in medical or dental offices, according to Cambridge Sound Management.
“We want to be sure our solutions integrate seamlessly into popular energy and lighting control systems,” says Christopher Calisi, CEO at Cambridge Sound Management, in the joint announcement.
“This partnership enables customers to activate speech protection in private spaces without ever having to think about it.”
Lutron wireless Radio Powr Savr occupancy sensors and PowPak CCO modules “ensure smooth integration and reliable communication with Cambridge Sound Management systems via reliable Lutron Clear Connect RF technology,” according to the joint press release.
When an occupant enters, the occupancy sensor immediately sends a command to the PowPak CCO module, which activates the sound management system. To save energy, the sound management system automatically shuts off when the room is vacant.
“Lutron is delighted to join Cambridge Sound Management in its effort to automatically activate sound masking systems that boost privacy,” said Scott Hanna, VP of commercial systems and communications at Lutron Electronics.
“Lutron products will help seamlessly create the right environment for occupants, making them more comfortable and confident in the security of their private conversations.”
