The Lutron Caséta Smart Lighting Control is a mini wireless system for controlling the lights in a smaller space, like a single room. The system is compatible with both older and newer homes and integrates with the broadest variety of home technology.

Lutron Ra2 Select
Lutron RadioRA lighting and control systems like the Lutron RA2 Select offer support for up to 100 devices. That’s perfect for large homes that need smart lighting and shade control. The RA2 Select grants you the ability to select personalized lights and shades to give your home a unique and stylish look. You can also control the system with the Lutron App on your smartphone from anywhere around the world or simply mount the Pico remote for additional control.

The RA2 Select also allows you to set customized scenes to suit your mood with the Pico remote. Whether you want to relax with some soft lighting or set the mood with some energetic blue hues, the RA2 Select has you covered.
Homeowners are increasingly demanding energy-efficient homes. As part of this push, Lutron RadioRA lighting systems are becoming essential for keeping interiors cool and comfortable. The need for automated home shading is growing on account of the concern over the high energy consumption of air-conditioners, especially in the tropical climates of South Florida.
Direct sunlight also harms internal temperature, which can be managed with automated shade control. The RA2 Select can increase UV protection with automatically controlled home shades.
Smart homes are nothing new, but they’ve become much more accessible recently. Smart home systems like the Lutron RadioRA 2 can make your home safer and more energy efficient, as well as give you a whole host of new features and abilities. Here’s what you should know about Lutron’s Radio RA2.

The RadioRA 3 is powered by Lutron’s Clear Connect RF technology, which provides more efficient communication with other devices on a whole new level.
The Lutron HomeWorks system is the most powerful home automated lighting control system that takes your lighting and temperature to the next level. It’s fully customizable to your needs, so you can control internal electrical lighting, natural lighting, blinds, and temperature all from one place.
