What are the system limitations?

  • A RadioRA 3 system can have a maximum of one (1) Processor and (4) Repeaters for range extension. 
  • The RadioRA 3 processor works with new RadioRA 3 Sunnata Devices (Clear Connect-Type X) AND existing RadioRA 2/RadioRA 2 Select (Clear Connect Type-A) Devices
  • Each processor controls up to 200 devices (including the processor and 4 repeaters) with the following limitations: 
    • RadioRA 3 Sunnata Devices (Clear Connect-Type X):  A maximum of 100 Sunnata dimmers, keypads and switches can be added to a RadioRA3 system.  The Sunnata companion dimmers/switches DO NOT count toward the 100 device limitation.
    • RadioRA 2 / RA2 Select Devices (Clear Connect-Type A):  A maximum of 95 Lutron RF devices can be added to a RadioRA 3 system.  CLICK HERE  for a complete list of compatible RadioRA 2 / RA2 Select devices.

What are the RF Range Specifications of the system?

  • RadioRA 3 Sunnata Devices (Clear Connect-Type X) communicate using a wireless mesh topology.  In order to assure proper communication, the following rules must be adhered to when designing the system.
    • ALL Sunnata RF (Clear Connect-Type X) devices should be located within 75ft of the processor
    • At least 2 Sunnata RF devices (not including companion dimmers/switches) must be located within 25ft of the processor
    • Each Sunnata RF device (not including companion dimmers/switches) must be located within 25ft of two other Sunnata RF Devices
 
  • RadioRA 2 / RA2 Select Devices:  All Lutron Clear Connect-Type A devices must be within 30ft of the RadioRA 3 processor OR Repeater to assure proper communication.
    • Repeaters must be within 60ft of the Processor OR another repeater
