Lutron Home Automation: Control Your Home’s Temperature, Lighting, Security, and More!
Lutron Home Automation
Your home is supposed to be your safe place, your soothing buffer against the stressful world, and the one place you can be your most comfortable. If your home needs a little push to fulfill its purpose, then a Lutron home automation system can help achieve that goal for you and your family.
Lutron’s RadioRA® 2 is a wireless home control system with the capability to adjust the amount of your home’s daylight and electric light as well as its temperature in a single room or throughout your whole house. In addition, this Lutron home automation system can help manage power to small appliances and even accommodate the security system.
With RadioRA®2 Lutron home automation, you can:
- Save energy and lessen your impact on the environment through a combination of light, window covering, temperature, and appliance control.
- Add convenience to your life with adjustment of lights, window coverings, and temperature to the specific level you want at the touch of a button.
- Create just the right mood or setting for any activity—and do it with stylish products that complement your décor.
- Display cutting-edge technology with wall-mounted, tabletop, or handheld controls in a specific room, or remotely from another room, or even from outside your home.
Because Lutron home automation features cutting edge wireless technology, the system installs just as easily into existing homes as it does in new construction.
Your Lutron home automation includes a comprehensive system of keypads, sensors, and controls for lighting, fans, thermostat, appliances and window coverings. It is highly customizable, so you can select the components that are best suited for your family.
Benefits of Your Lutron Home Automation System
Controlling the amount of electric light in your home through Lutron home automation allows you to enjoy exactly the level of light your activities require, precisely where you need it, with no wasted energy. Dimming a standard light bulb by 25 percent can save 20 percent of your family’s lighting energy. CFLs and LEDs use even less, so dimming these bulbs saves even more energy. Sensors and a time clock also save by turning off lights when they are not needed, even if you forget.
Managing temperatures when heating or cooling your home not only makes each room more comfortable when you are present, it makes your home more efficient all the time. With its wireless sensors, your Lutron home automation system can take advantage of daylight and family activity levels throughout the day and across the seasons of the year. Even when you are away from home, you still have the potential to save 16 percent or more in energy usage!
If you can see a light on an appliance, hear a motor, or detect any warmth, that appliance is using energy even if it is turned off – sometimes as much as 10 percent of your total electricity usage. Your Lutron Home Automation system can shut off this standby unneeded power through its appliance mode.
Window Covering Control
Adding automated window shades, blinds, or draperies allows your family to achieve the greatest additional benefit from your Lutron Home Automation system. Controllable window coverings save on heating and cooling by blocking the sun’s heat in summer or letting it in during winter. Also, they can raise or lower throughout the day to shed light on activities in specific rooms or guard privacy in other areas.
The Lutron home automation system’s RadioRA 2 integrates seamlessly with Alarm.com, DSC, ELK, HAI and Honeywell security panels. Your security keypad will offer one more point of access for saving energy, creating privacy and adding comfort to your home. In addition, pre-programmed lighting and window covering adjustments give the appearance of occupancy even when you and your family are away from home.
The Green button is a cutting edge feature of your Lutron home automation system. With a single touch, you control all the components of your RadioRA 2 technology with pre-programmed settings that reduce energy from lights, window coverings and heating-cooling systems.
