Hi, everybody, I got some project with installed working  Lutron RadioRa system, Client just bought that  house, he doesn't know who did installation. He wants to install C4 for his house, Does anybody know, if I have a lutron RadioRa composer, can I somehow download information about Lutron devices? before I got it from electrician and did all stuff, no problem. But now there is no electrician and I don't want to damage working system. If there is no way I just won't touch it.

Thanks

If you have a copy of Lutron's software (essentials or inclusive) you can extract the project file from the main repeater.  The RadioRa2 drivers work great with C4 so you wouldn't have to change out any dimmers. If you don't have access to the Ra2 software, you can take Lutron's online course for the essentials version which would allow for upto 100 devices.  Good Luck!

Hi, I opened Lutron RadioRa2 essentials software, but there is no option to download project, I can upload or create new one, but can not (maybe just don't know how ) to connect to existing controller and download installation report. I was able to download HTML with programming, but installation report can not.

You can only extract the project file from the main repeater if you have the inclusive software - requires a L2 dealer/installer. To get access you will need to complete L2 training.

Yes you can get the integration IDs from the essentials software. You don't need the inclusive software for that.

Ok. but how can I log in int controller to see that info? wont it delete all programming was done before? ( I did one same thing with "Speakercraft" controller and needed to redo all stuff from scratch) so if here I will connect to controller will it up load my programming (empty file) or not ? 

Thanks.

You should probably call Lutron. You are going to need the inclusive software to extract the file first from the main repeater.

You do not need the software. All you need is the username/password which is probably the default. lutron/lutron

 

Go to Internet explorer (MUST USE THIS BROWSER) and type int he ip address of the radiora2 main repeater. Type in the user/pass. After that you will get 2 choices. Either deviceip info or get database info as xml 

 

If you click get database info as xml it will open the pure code. After that simple Ctrl F and search for "IntegrationID".

 

It will look something similar to this. 

 

Area Name="Kitchen" IntegrationID="5" OccupancyGroupAssignedToID="342" SortOrder="3">

 

 

You will probably have to play around with the ID's depending on if you want to control a keypad or specific dimmer. Lutron has great support though. 

 

The other option is telnetting into the main repeater. 

 

Also in my experience the control4 tech support will not help you because as they put it "houselogix made the driver so we don't give support" 

 

Really stupid but, hey that's control4. 

 

Also keep in mind you need to make sure all code is exposed but clicking the + sighs. This will make sense when you see the code.
