  • Lutron RA2 Switch Control

    I am thinking about purchasing Lutron RA2 for use in my home but it doesn't support some advanced conditional programming that I would like to be able to use. I ran across HomeSeer and respectively this plugin and am curious if it can do what I want.

    I would like to be able to use the Lutron Dimmers such as (RRD-PRO-WH) to control the lights in the house. But I also want the ability to do things similar to what this post talks about.

    The part that I am confused on is what can I use for the switches. Am I able to use a RA2 dimmer as a trigger for a IFTTT Trigger and still control that same dimmer. My concern is that I would press the dimmer switch to active the lights. The lights would come on the the previously set dimmer value and then the IFTTT would trigger changing the light value after the lights were already on or is this plugin fast enough that it can activate the dimmer to the desired value of the IFTTT Trigger.

    Why do you want to use the IFTTT, HS event triggers if very fast.

    Is this the same light or other light: IFTTT would trigger changing the light value after the lights were already on

      It would be the same light/dimmer that needed to be updated.

      I want to use the If Then logic probably using the plug that was mentioned in the other thread (Spud's Easy Trigger).

      What I want to be able to do is 2 things.

      1. For Dimmer 1
      1. Between 8am and 9pm the dimmer works normally turning the light on at the last known dimmer value
      2. between 9pm and 8am the dimmer should turn the light on to a default value of 20%
      2. For Dimmer 2 (a different circuit), with a remote dimmer, (for three way control of the light) I want to add a motion sensor to the logic of the circuit/dimmer. So the logic would be as follows.
      • If the motion sensor triggers then turn on the dimmer to 100%, after the motion even clears then turn the dimmer back off
      • If either the dimmer or remote dimmer is used to turn the light on, disable the motion sensor so that it doesn't turn the lights off. When the dimmer or remote dimmer is used to turn the lights off then enable the motion sensor again for control of the lights/dimmer
      From my reading I think the second objective should be pretty doable. My concern is the first objective.
