    Basic switch question- help!

    I have a radio ra 2 system and want to add a room to it. The light is currently 3 way standard non dimmable basic switch.
    Can i leave one of the 2 switches a standard switch and purchase a lutron radio ra dimmable switch for the other? Which model number(s) would work?

    Same question in another room but do not need dimmable, just standard 3 way on-off.

    RadioRA 2 dimmers and switches do not work with mechanical switches.

    The RRD-PRO gives the most flexibility regarding LED compatibility. It's also the most expensive. The RRD-6ND is also a good option. You will need companion dimmers (RD-RD) for 3-way/4-way locations.

    The non-dim switch is RRD-8ANS. The non-dim companion is RD-RS.

    The only system I know which lets you use a mechanical switch is Caseta. For Ra2 you need either a Remote Dimmer in the other location or less desirable, a Pico if you like.
