Lutron’s HomeWorks Wireless platform has the power to transform residential and commercial CI projects, says value-added distributor Habitech.

Unlocking over six decades of design sophistication from the World’s foremost lighting control specialist, yet retaining the convenience of RF installation and smart App-based control, Lutron’s HomeWorks Wireless offering allows integrators to deliver creative control over light and shade, even in the largest homes.

Similar to Lutron’s entry-level RA2 Select system, HomeWorks Wireless uses a system of main processor and RF repeaters to extend the operational range of wireless dimmers, keypads, shades and sensors through Clear Connect technology.

Like RA2 Select, it deploys a Clear Connect Bridge linked to the home’s router to enable smartphone App control of lighting, window treatments and designed scene combinations of artificial and natural light around the home. Unlike the entry-level RA2 Select system, which has a capacity of 100 devices, HomeWorks Wireless can work with up to 600 devices on a single system.

In addition to the ability to handle greater loads, Homeworks Wireless also provides integrators with the opportunity to use different load types and control DALI or DMX fixtures as well as a wider range of keypads such as the seeTouch tabletop, complete with a broader choice of finishes, button arrangements and engraving possibilities.

Powerful configurability provides HomeWorks Wireless with a number of advantages. Its design software enables Conditional (if this, then that) Control scenarios, allowing the ability to precisely customise the user experience. Configurable keypad buttons can be programmed for multi-layered functions, governed by single taps, double-taps, or longer button pushes. Scenes are manually or automatically activated via astronomical time clocks or triggered from a third-party system controlling entertainment or security for instance.

There is also a Vacation Mode, which allows the user to trigger a randomised sequence of operations designed to give the impression of occupancy while the owners are away.

Habitech’s new lighting specialist Jorge Pereira said: “Lutron’s HomeWorks Wireless places almost limitless creative potential in the hands of integrators, supported by the convenience of wireless connections and over sixty years of proven design innovation and reliability. It offers seamless and scalable control over lights and window treatments from the same décor-matching keypad, even from the same button.”
To qualify for HomeWorks Wireless, integrators should complete a single day of virtual training.
