one thing i noticed is the MRF2-600MHW does not come with a remote. would i be able to program it to my remote (currently accoustic research rf)?
To the best of my knowledge, this is a closed system - meaning that you would have to use the Lutron Pico wireless remote to control the dimmer. Unlike their Ra2 or Homeworks products, this doesn't appear to have a master controller module that would allow some sort of connection to an outside controller (and even then, doubtful that you could use your existing remote to connect to it, but I don't know much about your Acoustic Research model).
Lutron did partner with URC to create a line of RF dimmers that work with the URC RF remote controls. Of course, this would require you to change your remote to a capable URC remote (along with dealer-provided programming), and I'm not certain of the pricing of this line.
