Frequently asked question
Your question is clear, but because some folks might not understand what they're asking, I'll cover all the bases. 1) NO third party hub - not even SmartThings - can talk 'directly' to Lutron Switches... you need the Lutron hub first, and then you can have 'something else' (SmartThings, etc) talk to the Lutron hub. 2… see more Your question is clear, but because some folks might not understand what they're asking, I'll cover all the bases. 1) NO third party hub - not even SmartThings - can talk 'directly' to Lutron Switches... you need the Lutron hub first, and then you can have 'something else' (SmartThings, etc) talk to the Lutron hub. 2) Someone else said you need the Lutron hub for 'wireless', but I would clarify that the wireless remotes DO work without any hub at all. 3) The switches and their remotes function perfectly as dumb switches, without any hub at all (while this may seem obvious to some, it is a common question). Because the Caseta switches work so well as dumb switches, you could buy the switches FIRST and get the hub later (if you're considering the 'Lutron Maestro' line because of the Caseta cost, this approach may be for you because at least you will have the OPTION later.... a Caseta switch is only ~$20 more than a Maestro and the Maestro is a dead-end technology-wise).
Yes, the Caseta Wireless system is compatible with Apple HomeKit if you are using the Smart Bridge (model: L-BDG2-WH), which is included. Please visit www.casetawireless.com/integration for more information.

Basically, what you need to do is to check each manufacturer against what devices they are compatible with. You may be able to use Alexa to control them all, but that would still require you to buy hubs that matched your devices.So, my suggestion would be to pick a hub manufacturer that you want to use, then go to their website and see what devices they are compatible with. Most list the devices that will work with their hubs.Garage door openers have really changed in the last year, so a door opener that was not compatible may now be. That will require you to check the manufacturers site for the door opener to ensure it will work.Once you have your list of devices and manufacturers, send a note to the hub manufacturer to ensure they will support them. Go to the pre-sales support site on the hub manufacturer. Most will respond within one day because they want to sell you a device and because they want you to be happy and not write a bad review.Hope that helps! Sorry that it is not yet the one stop shop for everything!!! I am sure that will be here in the next couple of years, but for now it requires extra work.Later, :-)RalphTacoma, WA
Yes you can. A Pico remote has the ability to control as many switches you would like simultaneously as long as they are in range.

Reliable essential smart home tech
My husband installed these throughout our home and synced them with Alexa as a birthday gift to me. I’m the wife that comes home and turns on every light in the house and then walks out. Now, rather than having to run around hitting 17 light switches before leaving again (or uh, just being a terrible person who leaves them on), I just very smugly yell “Alexa turn off all lights!” and saunter on out. It’s been seven months and it still hasn’t gotten old. Alexa will also control the dimming settings and such. The future is now, folks. I feel like a Jetson.
According to the hubby you should get smart switches, not smart bulbs, because they’re more reliable and can’t burn out. I can’t promise you he’s right but we’ve had exactly zero problems with these switches so far.07/14/2022Verified Purchase
Great option for smart dimming on single and 3-way
I got 2 of these kits. They were $119 each and I just went for it.
I put 3 of them on 3-way circuits, 1 on a single pole. They just have you take all the wires on the second location (except neutral and ground) and wire nut them together. Then you install the pico switch over where the second switch used to be. This is nice because smart switches are huge and can be a pain to fit into a box, especially if you have a lot of extra wire or other smart switches installed in the same box.
For the single pole switch, it was nice to have the ability to add the second switch. We wanted another switch for the dining room but it wouldn’t have made sense to have someone come out and wire it (too costly). This pic was simple and cost effective.
The app is good as well. Not perfect, but you can control lights without issues and there are some scenes that are nice.
I use Philips warm dim bulbs with the switch. I had installed Feit LED retrofit prior to installing the switches, but they turned out to not work well and I swapped the light kits back in and got the Philips.
Only complaint is there aren’t Pico mounts included in the kit, so expect to fork out $4-$5 extra per mount.07/08/2022Verified Purchase
Shortcomings overlooked in formal online reviews (CNET, etc): LIMITED BULB COMPATIBILITY, NO DEFAULT DIM SETTING, and more
This review focuses on the Caseta Dimmer PD-6WCL-WH (no neutral wire). I won’t spent too much time going over the issues, just highlighting a couple and making a recommendation to another, improved, Caseta Dimmer.
– Works without white neutral wire. If your older Home has no neutral wire, this is the best LED smart dimmer available.
– Quality product, and in many rooms the cons aren’t an issue
– Controls up to 17 8.5 watt led bulbs
– Has unique ability to modify/set the high and/or low end of the dimming range (i.e. set the dim range so a bulb/fixture will dim lower)
– Lutron certifies bulbs for use in the dimmer and many bulbs, including the top rated BR30 GE Reveals, will not work in this dimmer. We like to use the new ‘vintage look’ LED bulbs, and none of mine work properly in this PD-6WCL-WH Caseta dimmer.
– The problem must people have with this product is it’s inability to set a default dimming level. When turned on at the switch it goes to max brightness.
Many people, like myself, like that when using LEDs with a dimmer, you can buy bulbs brighter than you could for an incandescent, and it only adds 2-5 watts and virtually no heat. This allows you to light a room super bright if needed, but use the dimmer so you can tone it down for everyday use. Here in lies the problem with this dimmer. It starts at max ever time you use the switch. This is terrible for a bathroom in the middle of the night.
The last thing is the layout is complicated. Guests won’t know how to use it, and you have to pause and think before you choose a button (especially in the dark). It not like a GE paddle where you can walk by and quickly tap it up or down.
If you like the layout, I strongly suggest you check out the Caseta PD-5NE-WH dimmer switch. It uses a neutral wire and functions with way more bulbs (I check compatibility myself – if there’s no flicker, hum, or on/off flash they work). It also has a button for a preset default, but it is a little pricey – no more pricy than spending $54 on a dimmer and switching it out!
See my product review on Caseta’s more advanced dimmer (PD-5NE-WH), it resolves almost all of this products issues.06/23/2022Verified Purchase
