Is it possible to remote access into the client's network to program a Lutron RadioRA2 main repeater?  If so, is there a document or video that explains how to get my laptop on the client's network?  To save "truck rolls"... having the ability to get my client's networks to program Lutron and RTi, would beneficial... VPN?

Hi @1puttpro it's possible, please just follow these steps:

Lutron Instruction

  1. Select the Lutron Processor 
  2. Go in "Connect" tab
  3. Click on "Create a TCP tunnel"
  4. Insert the Lutron Processor TCP Port. By default "51023"
  5. Wait to have the tunnel setup
  6. You get two informations:
    • Host
    • Port
  7. Open Lutron Designer program on your Laptop and:
    • Activate -> Processors --> Remote Access form 
    • Insert the previously retrieved Host/Port to be inserted here (see attachment as an example)
    • Save & Apply
  8. Now you can use your Lutron tool to  to remotely access to the processor:

He should also have had a previous transfer without the checkbox being selected “Restrict Communications to Local LAN”.

 

Let us know if you any issue.

Thanks... this is a very useful tool for our business.  Can this approach be used for connecting to other processors, like RTi?   Do you know what port RTi uses?

 

Not very sure about RTI. I'll try to get more information there.

 

However, we have in our very short term roadmap a very cool feature which will definitely resolve your issue to remote connect to any device (including ones using UDP instead of TCP ports). Therefore, stay tuned and lookout for new functionalities coming in the next month!
