    RA2 vs Homeworks QS

    I was told that RA2 is good for homes up to 5,000 sq ft or so. Is this a good rule of thumb to decide when to use RA2 vs Homeworks QS? Homeworks QS is about 2x to 3x the cost than RA2?

    Thanks in advance

    It depends on the size of the system not the size of the house. RRA2 is good for up to 200 devices (2 main repeaters). And I believe 4 aux repeaters per main repeater. Depending on the size and shape of course but that could be a pretty huge house. We have a system we are installing in a 8,000 square ft house. Only in common areas and master suite. 1 main and 2 aux repeaters. It's only something like 50 devices. HW would be total over kill.

    Thanks a lot Lukeetal.

    Is each seeTouch/seeTemp keypad, fan control, dimmer, occupancy sensor considered a device? How about the individual switches per circuit hidden in the closet? Would like to be able to estimate the number of devices needed. Sorry for the fundamental questions. I will take the RRA2 training soon.

    Yes, you don't have to include rd-rd or rd-rs so I am not sure if they count if included. Everything else with a part number rd- counts to ward count.
