Lutron Electronics recently announced the release of RadioRA 3. Featuring the first-ever line of wall controls with both light bar design and Internet of Things connectivity, a new all-in-one processor powered by PoE, and new simpler PC programming software and app-based editing features, RadioRA 3 is designed to transform how installers – and their customers – experience home lighting control. Installers can now entice their customers with new, beautiful, customizable controls that offer the smart home features homeowners want most, such as coming home to a well-lit house and transforming a room into a comfort zone with the touch of a button or a voice command.
Lutron’s RadioRA 3 system includes new SUNNATA RF keypads, dimmers, and switches that feature the elegant light bar design and come in a new, wider range of contemporary colors to enhance any décor. A soft glow makes the controls easy to find in the dark, and the dimmer’s capacitive touch technology allows clients to set the lighting with a touch or swipe of the light bar. IoT connectivity gives homeowners control of their lighting through the Lutron app, voice assistant, remote or wall control. The new SUNNATA RF dimmer features PRO LED+ technology for superior dimming of LED, halogen, incandescent, MLV and ELV lighting. So, installers need only to remember one dimmer model for virtually any job.
The new, state of the art processor is powered by PoE so pros can simply place it centrally in the home, without need for a nearby power outlet, to optimize the system’s RF network connectivity. It allows clients to connect up to 200 devices featuring Lutron’s proprietary ClearConnect RF technology for reliable, fast performance. It is easy to program via computer and through Lutron’s app, which can be used on the jobsite to efficiently commission the system, refine settings easily, and incorporate real-time client feedback. Also, it’s simple to make system changes remotely, post install, meaning fewer truck rolls for service. RadioRA 3 offers backwards compatibility with most RadioRA 2 and RA2 Select devices, so existing customers can expand their systems with new, beautiful RadioRA 3 wall controls.
RadioRA 3 works with various connected brands (Control4, Creston, Elan, RTI, Savant, URC, and more). And now that Lutron’s new LEAP API is natively embedded in the programming software of the top control systems, installers can save time when integrating RadioRA 3 to work in tandem with other systems. It also works with all the top brands homeowners ask for, including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, Ring, Sonos, and others.
RadioRA 3 will be available in late January 2022 through electrical and audio/visual distributors and from Lutron direct dealers.
