Make Your Home Lighting as Smart as You

Lutron’s RadioRA 2 Lighting Control System Does It All

Make Your Home Lighting as Smart as You

When you think of lighting control, do you think of it as a luxury?  It is indeed.  But if you have a larger home, there are benefits to having a system to manage lighting beyond banks of light switches.  Today's smart home lighting control solutions are more intelligent than ever before, and not only do they manage lights, but they integrate well with other smart home automation features too – making the whole greater than the sum of the parts.  

When it comes to smart home lighting, Bravo AV prefers Lutron.  The company has been the innovator and industry leader in lighting control systems for decades, starting with the invention of the first dimmer in the 1950s.  Their systems have gone way beyond the dimmer, as Lutron systems manage lighting in the iconic New York Times building in New York City. 

Lutron makes several lighting control solutions, but we want to focus on one that we think hits the sweet spot for a large variety of properties: RadioRA 2.  The Lutron RadioRa2 system can cover a couple of rooms all the way to a 7500 square foot home with up to 200 controllable devices, so it's flexible enough to retrofit an existing home or fully automate a large house.

Let’s explore some of the features of RadioRa2 and why it’s a great solution to add smart home lighting control to your Chatham, New Jersey property.
