Lutron by Dash is the missing link between two great systems. It offers complete integration between Lutron Homeworks QS or Radio Ra2 and URC’s Total Control. This type of integration with whole-home lighting systems is at the core of what home automation can be.
The ability to use Lutron interfaces to control URC opens up the custom market in a huge way. The need to clutter high end homes with multiple single use keypads goes away. The ability to use Lutron keypads to do things like trigger URC events and even control volume makes things possible that never have been before. Think about retro situations with Ra2 and their RF keypads that can go into any electrical box and double as an AV keypad. Or even putting a Pico and a trim anywhere, no wires necessary. Or in very high-end homes with custom color/engraved Lutron keypads that can also be used for the A/V keypads to keep a clean consistent look through out. Having access to use occupancy sensor status from within URC gives us the ability to do things as simple as trigger music on with occupancy or we can do more complex things like home monitoring. Using CLI or level triggered events, you can have one dimmer that shuts off multiple circuits.
There are so many things that become possible with this module that you start to think differently about how you design systems. They become one system rather than two separate systems. Which in turn allows us, the integrators, the ability to deliver a nicer looking, easier to use product to our clients.
