the definitive Grafik Eye master thread!!
I went with a Grafik eye QS, just got it a few months back. I looked at all of the systems.
The Caseta are good if you want to install a bunch of individual switches and cobble together scenes using a smart hub. There are a lot of alternatives in this space, Lutron’s is one of the few with HomeKit integration if you care about that.
The RA2 suite is another step up, pretty big suite of hardware controls, sensors, etc. The Grafik Eye QS is actually a part of the RadioRA2 suite and falls under “light controls”. You could possibly put together a nice (even whole home) system with seeTouch keypads instead. I found the RA2 overwhelming because most of the components want to use the Lutron gateway, wireless repeaters, or special wiring. Most of the keypads don’t drop in on their own but are designed to connect to a remote relay unit or a Graphik Eye.
In the end since the Graphik Eye is so capable, integrated into one piece of hardware, *and* a part of the RadioRA2 suite I decided I would just get one and then I would be able to expand with the Lutron Gateway and all of the other components later, if I wanted.
