Habitech says it's "delighted to be adding it's energises to the Lutron wireless RA2 Select platform at the EI Live trade show.

The whole-house lighting and window treatment system is intended for mainstream residential use, “to meet the needs of any home and to introduce the luxury and convenience of sophisticated ambient light control to a much wider audience.”

To be seen on the Habitech stand 48, RA2 Select offers homeowners the ability to personalise lighting and window shade scenarios via an app. It also gives installers the opportunity to efficiently deliver whole-house wireless integration of lighting control and Lutron window treatments.

The RA2 Select platform of wireless keypads and sensors, in-line dimmers and switches uses Lutron’s patented ‘Clear Connect’ wireless technology, generated by small Repeater modules. The only wiring required is for in-line dimmers and switches.

The main repeater is plugged into a wall socket for power and connected to the home network for integration. Up to four auxiliary repeaters can be added to extend the system for large properties. Each repeater has a 9m range.

The wireless ecosystem is ideal for retrofit applications. RA2 Select integrates with existing smart home technologies, including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats, Nest and Sonos. Naturally, it also works with home control platforms from Crestron and Control 4.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be working with the biggest star in the lighting control universe,” says Habitech MD Jonathan Pengilley. “There’s vast untapped demand in the smart home and developer market for a system with the proven simplicity and reliability of RA2 Select. Key to the experience for both installers and their customers is the keypads, which come preconfigured with lighting scenes. Dealers and Developers want it to be easy but flexible and I think Lutron have got it spot on with RA2 Select.”

Lutron RA2 Select will appear on Habitech stand 48 at EI Live 19, at the Farnborough Exhibition centre. For more news on Habitech products and services, visit our resource page here.
