Here Are The Best Features of a Lutron Lighting System
Explore How You Can Enjoy Custom Home Lighting Control
You’ve likely heard of the concept of smart lighting before: revolutionizing standard home lighting control and bringing it into the 21st century.
But what exactly does that mean? What does a lighting control system entail?
More importantly, you might be wondering how you even can have a smart lighting system in your own home.
We at Lelch Audio | Video are here to answer your questions.
Below, we’ll explore the basics of a Lutron lighting system – from the leading manufacturer in smart lighting control – and help you find the best solution for your Eden Prairie, Minnesota home.

Integrated Lighting Control
The common thread between all Lutron lighting systems is that they integrate the separate controls for your lights into a single system.
Regardless of whether it’s for a single area of your home or throughout your sprawling house, a Lutron system will allow you to control your home’s lighting easily.
Instead of needing to rely on manual on/off switches to power your lights, a professionally installed solution allows you to control all of your lights from a smartphone, tablet or even desktop computer.
Want to turn your kitchen-area lights off while you’re watching TV in your open-concept great room? Just tap a button on your smartphone instead of getting up from the couch and finding the light switch.
You’ll have remote access to every light you connect to your Lutron system. With Lutron, light control means so much more than just an on/off switch.
Custom Lighting Levels and Scenes
Of course, a Lutron lighting system can allow you to do much more than just remotely turn lights on and off.
In place of standard light switches, you can include Lutron-designed dimmers throughout your connected system. This, ultimately, comes down to your preferences.
You can include an on/off switch featuring a dimmer, opt for a rotary dimmer or feature the sleek new architectural style of a GRAFIK T dimmer and switch.
From these new in-wall technologies or your mobile device, you can customize the lighting levels for every connected space in your home.
But that’s not all a Lutron lighting solution can feature.
Create custom lighting scenes that you can access from your mobile application or a specialized keypad that allows you to turn multiple rooms’ lights on through a single command.
For example, you can set a “Dinner” command that brightens your kitchen lights to 100 percent and dims the dining room lights to your family’s preferred levels for socializing and eating. Or set a “Good night” command that turns every light in your home off before bedtime.
With Lutron, the options for managing your home’s lighting are endless.
Choosing the Right System for Your Home
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all system when it comes to Lutron solutions. Each system can be custom-designed to your preferences.
Lutron, however, does feature four solutions you can choose from for your lighting control infrastructure. Here’s a quick guide to learning about each:
- Caseta: This is Lutron’s gateway system for lighting control. It supports up to 50 devices, allowing you to start in one room and expand later into other areas of your home.
- RA2 Select: RA2 Select features support for up to 100 devices – allowing for whole-home lighting control for smaller residences. The downfall: You don’t get many customization opportunities with this solution.
- RadioRA 2: With the infrastructure for up to 200 devices, RadioRA 2 is the second-most advanced Lutron home lighting solution. It can support backlit and custom-engraved keypads for scene control, unlike Caseta and RA2 Select (from which you only can access custom scenes remotely).
- HomeWorks QS: This is Lutron’s most advanced and luxury residential lighting control platform, with support for up to 10,000 devices. It allows you to create customized keypads and offers the most keypad style and color options to choose from – perfect for enhancing the aesthetics of your space.
