I should be more specific. There are four topologies I can get with a Grafik Eye QS Wireless that Lutron support told me about
-All Wired (QS Link) - wired keypads, Sivoia shades, etc. In this case I need the RS232/Ethernet controller for QS links to do computer control.
-All Wireless (QS Link) - all wireless devices, hooked to Grafik Eye QS Wireless. No RadioRA2 allowed as this is a QS link wireless system.
-Wired/Wireless together (QS Link) - some wired and wireless devices. As long as the Grafik Eye QS wireless is the master device, this works fine. No RadioRA2 allowed.
-All Wireless (RadioRA2) - all wireless devices, hooked to RadioRA2 repeater. Controls on the Grafik Eye QS Wireless go through the RadioRA2 main repeater to control shades or anything else, it isn't the main controller anymore. And the wired link on the Grafik Eye QS is disabled if is is made part of a RadioRA2 system.
So-- if I ever might go with RadioRA2, and I bought some wired-only devices, they will stop working when I link the GE with the main repeater. So I have to choose to get all wireless components if I want to keep the upgrade path open with no waste. That was the impetus behind my question - wired or wireless?
The Hybrid Repeater is for Homeworks QS I think. My guess is I could combine wired/wireless on Homeworks QS, but wired stuff would have to be re-routed to the homeworks processor link, and the Grafik Eye would again become a slave only device - but I don't know for sure because I didn't research Homeworks - it was out of my price range and scope. But at least the wired stuff could still be used I guess - provided I could connect the Homeworks processor to the same wired link all the stuff was on.
