Upgrade Your Old Home with Wireless Smart Lighting Control

Did you know that, according to an S&P survey, more than a third of Americans will have smart home features in their property by the end of 2021? Smart tech is more popular than ever, with many claiming they would pay more for a property with integrated control.

Among the most popular ways to upgrade your Armonk, NY home is with smart lighting control. Not only will it raise your property's value, but it can also enhance the beauty, security, and efficiency of your everyday activities.

But for many homeowners with older properties, wiring for smart control might seem out of the question. Instead, Lutron offers local integration points and wireless control for lighting in any room. Want to find out how Lutron makes wireless control possible and how you can command every light in your home at once? Keep reading to learn more.

Radio Ra 2 - Wireless Lighting Control

Among the most common challenges for homeowners seeking the latest smart technology is the age of their property. Many older homes are not wired for 2020's devices, and due to their construction, it would be much too costly to add a system.

Thankfully, Lutron has developed a reliable, local solution for lighting control. Radio Ra 2, as the name suggests, uses radio waves to connect to each connected fixture. Unlike some DIY solutions, Radio Ra 2 doesn't rely on Wi-Fi or mesh networking and won't diminish bandwidth.

Instead, the system offers low-latency responses that don't require advanced network traffic management solutions. Every time you use your lights, they react quickly and reliably with just one touch.

Radio Ra 2 panels work with the Lutron app and connect with more extensive Lutron solutions like HomeWorks, so you can adjust all your lights from a single, intuitive interface -- no matter where they are in your home.

HomeWorks -- Centralized Light Management

Whether you're off to bed or leaving for work, you don't want to spend a lot of time turning off all the lights in your home. As you upgrade your lighting system, consider centralizing control for every fixture under a single, intuitive interface. Lutron HomeWorks is a comprehensive lighting control solution that combines your hardwired and wireless systems for complete lighting management.

Designed for total home comfort and convenience, HomeWorks completes your lighting control system with motorized shading solutions as well. That way, you can sculpt light and craft scenes that emphasize your property's most beautiful aspects.

HomeWork’s product suite includes keypads, dimmers, sensors, motorized rollers, and smart thermostats that ensure comfort, beauty, and more.
