Lutron Grafik RA2: Affordable single-room lighting control!!

Lutron have a great little product on their hands called Lutron GrafikRA2. GrafikRA2 is a single area, comprehensive wireless lighting and shading solution that's ideal for new construction or renovation/retro fitting. The system comprises of keypads, light controls, sensors and window/blind controls.

We are currently in the midst of converting a basement area into a den/media room. The room has 6 zones of lighting aswell as a skylight that needs blind control. The area was too small for a complex system such as Lutron Homeworks or Crestron and the costs of these systems wouldn't have been economical on such a small scale. A smaller, but still full-featured system was needed and GrafikRA fitted the bill perfectly.

GrafikRA gave us full dimming control over our circuits and also gave us control over 2 sets of blinds but really importantly to the client, it gave iPad/iPhone control of the whole system using a beautifully designed app.

Now, usually a system with these features from the market leader in lighting control, you would expect to pay thousands and thousands of pounds, but the great thing about GrafikRA is the price point. For single room solutions it just can't be beaten. The system cost under £1500, programming is minimal and the iPad app literally configures itself. 

We will post images during the project so you can keep track of our progress, but if you are looking for something similar please contact us today. We offer a free visit and no obligation quotation service.

PS. And we've heard a whisper that the Lutron GrafikRA2 system is going to be one of the first systems to be supported by Lutron's Home+ Apple Watch app.
