Autonomic Integrates with Lutron for Whole-House Entertainment

Builders have a new way to offer a whole-house entertainment solution to their clients.

Autonomic, maker of whole-house audio systems, can now integrate with the Lutron RadioRA 2 home lighting control system. The Autonomic music systems, already compatible with the Lutron HomeWorks QS home lighting control system, allows builders and integrators to provide new or existing clients with integrated whole-house entertainment.

Lutron’s RadioRA 2 keypads can control up to 96 zones of audio from Autonomic’s Mirage Media Servers (MMS) and Mirage Audio System (MAS).

RadioRA 2 system keypads can be used to trigger presets, control power, volume, play/pause/skip, thumbs up/down and other transport controls of the Mirage Media Server.

Builders and integrators can configure the system’s functionality to meet client demands via the Autonomic web-based tool. The Autonomic MMS will automatically discover a RadioRA 2 system and all related keypads on the network. The integrator can then proceed to select the desired RadioRA 2 device from a drop-down box, which will show all available zones and keypads.

Users will experience 2-way feedback between the MMS and Lutron keypads. Preset buttons can be configured to both recall existing presets and store new ones. This is available without disrupting any existing Lutron lighting-related presets or functionality.

Lutron has showcased this Autonomic integration as part of its Residential Opportunities Tour in 15 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
