Welcome to the Lutron Integration Guide for CasaTunes. Your CasaTunes music system includes built-in support for Lutron RadioRa2
and Homeworks lighting systems, allowing customers the option to control their CasaTunes music using their Lutron
wireless pico controllers, keypads, and Lutron timer events.
Simply put, you configure a CasaTunes Action in response to a button press, or a Lutron timer event. The
CasaTunes Actions available include: Powering a room on or off, toggling the power for a room, moving to the
previous or next track, switching to the previous or next source, playing the previous or next playlist, pausing
or playing the music, toggling between pausing and playing the music, turning off all rooms, and turning the
volume up or down.
Each CasaTunes Action can include various settings you can customize. For example, when you select the Power On action, you must select the room to turn on, and optionally the initial room volume, the source to use, and a
Lutron setup is currently only available using the CasaTunes iOS App v8.87 or later
You must be running CasaTunes v5.00.170714 or later
You should configure you main Lutron controller with a static IP address. Your Lutron controller must be network accessible
by your CasaTunes music server. In most cases, this is not an issue because both the Lutron controller and
CasaTunes music server are connected to the same network segment. You will need to provide the IP Address
of your Lutron controller when you configure your Lutron Settings in the CasaTunes App.
We recommend creating a dedicated Telnet login account for CasaTunes. We recommend using “CasaTunes” for the username, making
it clear this account is being used by CasaTunes. You will need to enter the Telnet login username and password
when configuring your Lutron Settings in the CasaTunes App.
We recommend Lutron RadioRa and Homeworks version 11.5 or later

Example: Using a Lutron Audio Pico Wireless Controller
Figure 1: Lutron Audio Pico Wireless
The Lutron audio pico wireless controller is a simple, yet powerful control solution for your customers, especially for those customers
who are less technical. This simple control device has 5 buttons (see Figure 1), including:
Pause/Play, Volume Up, Volume Down, Favorite (center button), and Next Track buttons.
When configuring this device for CasaTunes, we recommend you configure the Play/Pause button to trigger the CasaTunes “Toggle
Power” Action, the volume up/down buttons to trigger the CasaTunes “Volume Up“ and “Volume Down” actions, the
favorite button to trigger the CasaTunes “Next Playlist” action, and the next track button to trigger the CasaTunes
“Next Track” action.
