Hi there,


I've been going through the archives (great info!) but I still need some help with this. I'm in the process of wiring-thinking for my new house and HT, I'm leaning (at the moment) towards Lutron's RadioRA for lighting. I understand I need at least one repeater, but what about the master controller(s)? (wall-mounted RAMC-5L etc)


1. Do I still need them if I go also with a Grafik Eye 3xxx?


2. If yes, would the Grafik Eye in this case simply "centralize" the localized scene control of the 2-3 master controllers or does it buy me more?


3. if yes, what's the best way to interface multiple master controllers to a Grafik eye?




thanks a lot!

1. Yes. You need at least one master controller somewhere in the system.

2. The Grafik Eye has it's own scenes. These scenes can be activitate from the GE or from a Master Controller somewhere in the house.

3. The master controller is a key pad...you press a button on the key pad and those lights (and/or GE scenes) that you have assigned to that button are then activated. (Master Controller might have: All On, All Off, Entertain, Landscape, Good Night, Pathway, Movie, Intermission, etc.). The master controller will allow you to activate scenes, turn off/on, and/or dim lights through out the house.


Look at it this way. Dimmers are dimmers. They work just like any other dimmer. The Grafik Eye is a Grafik Eye and works just like any other Grafik Eye. RadioRA Master Controllers allow you to program multiple scenes and multiple lights to go on/off/dim by pressing a single button.

Dennis,

thanks for the info, greatly apreciated. Ok, since I need at least one RadioRA master controller, does it make sense to buy the Grafik Eye then?


Let's say, its either 3 master controllers, or one master controller and a Grafik Eye? Does the Grafik Eye buy me anything else other than scene control (in an RA system)?


thanks
