Frequently asked question
This is for applications with heavier load requirements (bathroom fans for example). The switch is rated for more amps than the dimmer. A dimmer isn’t always suitable either, like with exterior lights or in a garage.
Yes it does but you need the hub
For installing this switch, users will need a neutral connection in the wallbox. Please see the specification sheet for more information: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369987_ENG.pdf. Also, please feel free to contact Lutron Support at [email protected] or by phone at 1 (844) 588-7661 for assistance.
I just added this to my Wink Hub 2 by going through the process of adding a Lutron Caseta 'Dimmer'. Works fine!

Works Perfectly with Homekit - Black color looks very nice, imo
Super easy to install once you’ve identified which wires are which in the wall cavity (sometimes outlets/switches are junction boxes too, so an extra cable or 2 might be present)
allows for traditional manual operation of the switch via physical buttons for on/off, and smart operation too. both methods are available with this smart switch. you can manually turn the switch on, then use the voice assistant to turn it off, and vis-versa. I find myself using both the voice commands, and the physical switches
Compared to smart outlets that are connected to a dumb switch, which would interrupt the smart connection of the outlet if the switch is off on the wall. i have outlets controlled by wall switches for example
These communicate via a hub, meaning the wireless connection doesn’t go through the wifi, meaning the 4 Switches I use, do not slow down the wifi speeds/traffic. They use a different wireless signal that the hub uses, and the hub is the only device directly connected to the internet, via ethernet cable
(more things on the wifi = slower speeds)
There’s also a ‘kill switch’ – a little tab you pull out at the bottom, which cuts the power to whatever outlet/light fixture etc the switch is connected to. not sure what the use is, but im sure its helpful in some cases08/08/2022Verified Purchase
Read installation instructions and you should not have any issues. I sincerely do not know how I lived without my Lutron switches. Every light and fan switches in my house I’ve converted to Lutron.07/15/2022Verified Purchase

2nd Gereration, Upgraded Switch
I power washed the house several weeks ago and forgot to pull the little mini slider turn off on my switch, anyways the yellow Feit Florescent bulb blew, I tried to replace it with an LED bulb however, it would not work. I knew why, there was no common (white) wire on my existing switch. I bought mine many years ago when they came out. As everyone knows the light bulb industry switched from florescent energy saving in favor of LED bulbs. The old tech without the common (white) wire on the switch will not work with the new LED bulbs, so keep that in mind if your in a similar situation like me. The good news was all three Pico remotes I had programmed to this outdoor switch I was able to re-program and they worked beautifully, thank God. Being able to turn on your outdoor lighting when you drive up to a dark driveway at night is a major safety convenience as well as turning on your lighting from your easy chair without getting up is another nice feature.07/09/2022Verified Purchase
Great For Retrofitting Smart Features Into 1985 Era Home
I own a 1985 home that I’ve recently been trying to add some smart functions. I got hooked into smart home tech after solving a few basic quality of life issues through automation. My next project was lighting. I debated between adding smart bulbs or smart switches and after trialing these Lutron’s – the smart switches clearly won.
These basic on/off switches are great for locations where you don’t want dimming functions. Locations such as fans, fluorescent ballasts, outdoor security lights and the like. They provide simple push on-off capabilities, ‘smart’ on/off through the Lutron app and in my case, advanced control using an integration with Home Assistant. It’s really cool to see and control the status of my lighting/fans, regardless of where I’m at.
Pairing the switches with your Lutron hub was quite intuitive and easy to do. Just press a button while you add the switch in the app. Integration into Home Assistant was equally easy, the native Lutron integration is quite slick. For examples of how I use these switches for advanced automation? If I take a shower, I use humidity values to turn on or off my exhaust fans. I also have motion detection triggering the lighting in my bathrooms, entry way and closets. (No more ‘turn the lights off’ from me anymore!) For outdoor lighting, I can now control it based on AI-analyzed security cameras. No more security lights turning on because of snowfall, heavy rain or animals – it’s for people only!
Install of these is generally fairly easy in most cases. If you understand electrical basics, such as the load wire, the neutral wire and the hot wire(s), they are pretty straight forward to install. 3-way applications get a bit more tricky where you have to use a Pico remote, which seems to make sense so you don’t have smart things fighting with each other. Installation requires a few very basic hand tools.
For the most part, these are fairly slim and fit into their boxes quite well. I did have some challenges in a couple boxes that had a lot going on, but made it work. I definitely recommend using Wago connectors for your retrofit, they make connections a breeze compared to wire nuts. If you’re concerned about electricity or think it’s beyond your ability, an electrician should be able to install these without any troubles.
I think with smart technology, it’s very important to define ‘rules’ by which the stuff will operate. These are mine. First, everything has to operate intuitively, like a light switch would. Second, it has to operate without any ‘fancy’ server side smarts or network capabilities. Three, it has to integrate with my home automation system of choice as I don’t want to be beholden to any particular vendor or app. Generally speaking, these Lutron’s satisfy my requirements.
If you’re in the market for smart switches, these are about as good as they get. I’ve been really happy with the advanced capabilities it offers the home owner. While they are expensive, a full ‘smart’ retrofit with a single platform is going to add value to your home, should you go to sell it. I’m glad to be partnered up with Lutron in my home, they are definitely on the ‘recommend’ list.06/10/2022Verified Purchase
