The iPad is cool because of applications such as Lutron‘s new RadioRA 2 control system.
With the app, now available on iTunes for $19.99, owners of the RadioRA 2 can control their system from afar (say, on vacation) and put their home into “green” mode by turning off unneeded appliances.
The Lutron Home Control+ application allows you to control your RadioRA 2 or Homeworks QS lighting control system over a Wi-Fi network with the convenience of the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
- Quickly access multiple system features in one place with the HomeGlance screen. Available features include: a favorite keypad, a list of favorite lighting and shade zones, timeclock mode (requires RadioRA 2 version 4.0 or higher), and temperature overview (coming soon)
- Easily edit the light and shade levels programmed to keypad buttons and timeclock events in real time using the Level Editor (RadioRA 2 only, HWQS support coming soon)
- Save energy without comprimising performance using “Green” buttons (RadioRA 2 only)
- View and edit timeclock events on the Schedules screen (requires RadioRA 2 version 4.0 and higher)
iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch:
The RadioRA control application (and others like it) is certainly the future in home automation.
