    Homeworks keypad update

    Hello, quick question. We love our RA2 system but just purchased a house with an older HW setup. How easy is it to updated the dimmers and keypads, they are very dated style as below. Thanks to anyone who takes time to help!

    That style of keypad was used with HomeWorks Original, HomeWorks Interactive, and HomeWorks Illumination. If you can find a processor you could upgrade as far as Illumination. To upgrade to HomeWorks QS (current) would require replacing most of the components. The only thing you could retain would be the remote power panels, if any. Even then, the RPMs are probably pre-LED and may need to be replaced.

    They were also used with the precursor to HomeWorks (NetWorks, NetLinks or something similar). There is no upgrade option for this. However, I have successfully converted one of these to RadioRA 2 but it was a complete replacement.

    Yikes. Sounds like a big expense. Good to know.
