I know Lutron is a great company with great products but I also know they are very expensive. Unlike Eaton, Lutron also uses proprietary frequencies (I believe Clear Connect works in the 400s), which from a wireless coexistence perspective is excellent, but it comes with the higher price tag.

Same here. I was also curious as to why it would be limited to cloud based solutions. I would drill down a layer into the perceived benefits of cloud based, and define it that way. Easier management requiring less staff time and thus lower TCO and more ability to accomplish other activities?

Those are good words to put in my mouth. In addition to these operational benefits, there is a strong philosophical commitment at the C-level to cloud-based services whenever it is feasible, so we don't go with on-prem unless there is no feasible way to do it with cloud. I am very appreciative
