Lutron Introduces RadioRA® 2, a New, Wireless Lighting Control System Capable of Controlling Lights, Shades, Temperature and More

Coopersburg, PA (Sept. 9, 2009) – Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics Co., Inc., introduces RadioRA 2 – a state-of-the-art lighting control system that provides convenient and intuitive control of lights, shades, audio-visual devices and temperature all at the touch of a button.

This new product takes the original Lutron RadioRA concept to a whole new level incorporating more than 10 years of RF experience, customer feedback, and new innovations. The result is a completely redesigned lighting control solution tailored to customers’ needs.

The new RadioRA 2 features include:

• New System Components

o Lutron’s new seeTouch® hybrid keypad-dimmer for retrofit applications
o Wireless PicoTM Control

o Native system support of GRAFIK Eye® QS lighting control and Sivoia® QS shading solutions – no interfaces required

• PC setup tool
o Intuitive system programming application makes RadioRA 2 easy to design and program using a PC.
o This feature allows the programmer to define zones and locations, light and shade levels, occupancy/vacancy sensing, etc. in every room in the home from one convenient location – saving time.

• Open Integration
o Public integration protocol allows devices capable of sending and/or receiving RS232 or IP commands to control lights and shades.
o Two-way communication provides the ability to monitor the status of lights in the home from popular remote controls, home automation systems and PCs.

• Scalable
o RadioRA 2 is scalable from two to 200 devices (includes dimmers, shades, keypads, etc,)
o Components can be added at any time to grow the system from a single-room to an entire home solution.

RadioRA 2 uses Clear Connect Radio Frequency (RF) Technology, Lutron’s reliable, wireless, communication technology built on over a decade of experience designing RF products. Created specifically for operationally essential systems like light control, this technology ensures optimal performance in retrofit or new construction applications.

As with all Lutron products, RadioRA2 will provide end-users with enhanced ambiance in their homes as well as reduced energy consumption. Each year, Lutron customers save 9.2 billion kWh of energy. That’s equal to the amount of energy to light 4.5 million homes for one year.1
