The Lutron RA2 Select plugin enables Rithum Switch to be integrated with your RA2. It allows configured scenes to be triggered from Rithum.
Note: You must have scenes configured within your RA2 system. Rithum does not import buttons but scenes. If you receive an error when loading the config or don't see the scenes you want, please check that you have them defined as scenes.
Follow the instructions for adding a plugin to install the Lutron RA2 Select plugin.
Note: Integration Telnet access must be enabled in your RA2 system.
Configuring the integration
When successfully installed, in the settings menu on Rithum Switch select Integrations > Add Integration > Lutron RA2 Select followed by Enter IP Address...
Enter the RA2 IP address. Rithum Switch will then attempt to connect to the RA2. When successfully connected the switch will display the following screen:
As instructed, visit our configuration web page at cloud.rithumhome.com/lutronconfig The device used for this must be on the same local network as the Rithum Switch.
NOTE: An additional step is currently required to work around a browser security error. For the process to work, "Allow Insecure Content" needs to be enabled. It is safe to do this: The connection is purely within your local private network, between the browser device and Rithum Switch. No data is transferred out to the internet.
The instructions to do this on Chrome are as follows:
- Click on the padlock to the left of cloud.rithumhome.com/lutronconfig in the address field
- Select Site settings
- In the new settings window that opens, change the "Allow insecure content" setting to "Allow" (as shown in screen shot below)
- Reload the cloud.rithumhome.com/lutronconfig window
We will add instructions for other browsers in due course. In the meantime, if you require assistance with enabling this on other browsers, please email email@example.com stating which Browser you are using.
Loading config data
You then need the config data from the Ra2. To get this, In the Lutron phone app, press the top-left settings button, then Advanced > Integration > Send Integration Report. You will then need to copy the text from the body of the email that it creates and then paste that text into the text box on the web page as shown in the screenshot below:
Click on “Send Config”. If it is successful then you should see a popup message on the web page indicating so, and there should also be a message shown on the switch saying that it has successfully connected.
After successfully connecting, press Go There to continue configuration in the Screens > Scenes Screen menu. Press on each scene that you want to be present as buttons on the Scenes Screen. Selected scenes are shown with a white tick. Press the gold tick in the top right corner to save the selection.
It is also possible to select a scene to be executed when the screen is held whilst in standby mode.
In settings go to the Gestures settings menu. Select Hold followed by the IP address of your connected RA2. Select the scene to be executed from the list displayed.
