I really like this Caseta system. Setup was easy and the switches install easily (just like the old X-10 and Insteon switches). I've subsequently purchased other switches including the On/Off dimmer that can handle a transformer load. I've installed a switch and Pico remote in a 3 way switch application, and it works great. I really like these and they work with Apple HomeKit so you can enable Siri to work your lights. The free app is pretty intuitive and easy to use and you can set up widgets for your phone for quick access.
Criticisms and why I don't give it 5 stars: I find the button layout for the dimmer switch to be too cluttered and the actual switch buttons to be too small - I much prefer the simple ON/OFF buttons on their other dimmer. The dimmer function could be handled by a long press on a two key switch (like Insteon) and I don't see the usefulness of having a "favourites" button - a waste of switch real estate, imo. The Pico remotes should have a plastic back (vs a peel and stick) and Lutron should make a way to combine the various Pico remotes (if you have multiple switches) into a control pad (e.g.: 2 gang, 3 gang, etc).
Biggest criticism is the lack of low temp performance. I read reviews saying that the switch will not function below freezing, which is a shame since I wanted to replace my oldest switch (a Radio Shack X-10) which is in my unheated, detached garage. That switch continues to work flawlessly so I don't understand why Lutron can't make a Caseta wall switch for protected outdoor usage. Hopefully, this will be coming in the future?
The only real improvements I could suggest for the product would be:
- The bridge would benefit from a screw mounting hole so that I could just attach it to the wall near my router
- The buttons on the wall switch itself feel like they might wear out over time, but so far I've had no issues
The first challenge is that the dimmer has a fairly large container that must fit into the switch box in the wall. Mine unfortunately had a tab with a hole for a bolt sticking out in the corner so I had to bend it out of the way with pliers and an allen key which took considerable effort. I believe Lutron tried to accommodate this because one corner of the dimmer box has a "cutout" allowing for some clearance on one corner; unfortunately it was a) in the wrong corner and b) not quite deep enough to have made a difference as the box would have still eventually hit the metal tab too early.
The wiring was also a bit tricky. I have a two-switch box and the hot wire was daisy-chained to the other switch. Not realizing this immediately, I blindly followed the instructions which resulted in the dimmer being part of the daisy chain so both switches were controlling the second device and neither was controlling my light. I replicated the daisy chain by connecting the lead hot wire and the wire leading to the second switch to one of the black leads, and what I believe is the load to the other black lead (note: the daisy chain live wires were brown and the other wire was yellow; I live in a new condo).
After much sweat and tears, both switches worked and the pairing part was very easy. My only two suggestions to Lutron are to a) continue to strive to miniaturize the electronics further to maximize compatibility and b) consider visual wizards to help with non-trivial installations; this is something that made installing my Nest fairly easy by comparison. However, their customer service did try very hard to help, and I am very happy with the final result.
As a bonus, the light (Artemide Pirce Mini LED) does not buzz when dimmed; it does flicker very slightly.
I also use the Philips Hue system and the TP-Link smart plugs and switches. Each have their purpose and value. Lutron excels in that it is a regular switch that is dimmable. And the Pico switch will give you the ability to give it a 3-way switch feature (2 switches in opposite ends of the room to control the same light) where where is no physical one.
This has more capabilities than I'm using with it today. For example using it with Amazon Echo or Google Home.
