I have a small church lighting renovation project. The church has old 2 wire electrical. The client is cost conscious asking for minimal rewiring / destruction / downtime so I proposed RAdioRA2 using scenes and time clock. We only need one main repeater and one auxiliary repeater to cover the entire church. Less than 30 devices total.

The project is in the bidding phase and one electrical contractor shared the following comment :

“The control system specified is Lutron Radio RA. I am very familiar with this product and for your project I would highly recommend using Lutron Homeworks QS. The QS processor is a bit more robust than RA2 and has several additional features that will make programs better suited and adaptable to your current and future needs. You will be making a substantial investment here and the additional cost of using QS will be negligible.”

I’d appreciate very much of your experience on the pros and cons of using RadioRA2 vs Homework QS for a retrofit renovation project.
