Thread: Lutron Homeworks Series 8 Processor Replacement

    Lutron Homeworks Series 8 Processor Replacement

    My boss and I (IT/security/anything we're told needs getting done) have had to go look at the owner of our company's personal house and he has a Lutron Homeworks Series 8 system installed throughout his house. Well the system seems to be geeking out and the guy who usually works on the house is telling the groundskeeper that you can't buy a replacement processor because it's a legacy and getting it from anyone else would have their programming left on it, blah blah blah. I feel like that's probably malarcky. Is it possible to get a replacement and install it ourselves?

    TL;DR: So how bad of an idea would it be to purchase a replacement processor online and replace it myself?

    How do you know the processor is the issue ? Better to explain whats going on before jumping into new processor.

    Hello thekrazykaveman,
    Thank you for your post.
    The best option would be to contact a Homeworks professional. You can find one here www.lutron.com/wheretobuy
    You may be able to purchase a replacement processor through a 3rd party but that may not be the root cause. The system may have warranty left on it too. Plus you would need a Homeworks professional to load up the programming to the new processor.
    If you would like to tackle this yourself then I can assist going forward. Send an email to hwsupport@lutron.com with a description of the issue and we can take it from there.

    What if I just admitted defeat and got certified myself as the choices of certified technicians in the area is limited? Would I get any training on the legacy systems?

    The current certification wouldn't provide much help in terms of knowing the older system. There may be some other paths we can take to get you where you need to be. Send me an email to hwsupport@lutron.com and we can review what is the best course of action.
