I’ve had a chance to play with the Beta version of RA2 Select, and it really is that simple. With a 2-wire dimmer switch (no neutral needed) I installed three dimmer switches in about 20 minutes, followed by two lamp modules, which took two minutes to plug in, and programming couldn’t have taken more than 5-10 minutes, including a few Pico remotes. So maybe 30-40 minutes total for a two room lighting system from unpacking to first use.

This should open up the doors to lighting control for many new dealers as well as those looking to expand their business into new markets. I’ll be swapping out my Z-Wave lighting for these as soon as they come out officially.
