HomeKit
 
accessories
 
in
 
their
 
home
 
and

What
 
products
 
from
 
Lutron
 
work
 
with
 
HomeKit?
 
Lutron
 
has

The

How
 
do
 
I
 
know
 
if
 
a
 
product
 
is
 
a
 
HomeKit
 
accessory?
 
A
 
product
 
is
 
a
 
HomeKit
 
accessory
 
if
 
it
 
has
 
been
 
licensed
 
by
 
Apple
 
as
 
a
 
HomeKit
 
compatible
 
product.
  
Any
 
product
 
that
 
is
 
compatible
 
with
 
HomeKit
 
will
 
have
 
a
 
“Works
 
with
 
Apple
 
HomeKit”
 
mark
 
on
 
the
 
packaging,
 
and
 
on
 
a
 
label
 
on
 
the
 
product
 
itself
  
 
Example
 
of
 
“Works
 
with
 
Apple
 
HomeKit”
 
logo
 
on
 
packaging:
 
 
 
How
 
does
 
HomeKit
 
work?
 
When
 
you’re
 
at
 
home
 
on
 
your
 
Wi

Fi
 
network,
 
and
 
you
 
tell
 
Siri
 
to
 
do
 
something
 
(ex.
 
“Turn
 
off
 
my
 
lights”),
 
the
 
message
 
is
 
sent
 
over
 
your
 
Wi

Fi
 
network
 
to
 
your
 
HomeKit
 
accessories.
  
If
 
you
 
are
 
away
 
from
 
home
 
and
 
you
 
tell
 
Siri
 
to
 
do
 
something,
 
the
 
message
 
is
 
sent
 
via
 
the
 
Internet
 
to
 
an
 
Apple
 
TV®
 
device
 
in
 
your
 
home,
 
which
 
then
 
sends
 
the
 
message
 
over
 
your
 
Wi

Fi
 
network
 
to
 
your
 
HomeKit
 
accessory.
 
 
If
 
the
 
HomeKit
 
accessory
 
uses
 
Wi

Fi
 
or
 
Bluetooth
 
as
 
their
 
RF
 
communication,
 
the
 
message
 
gets
 
sent
 
directly
 
to
 
the
 
device.
  
If
 
the
 
HomeKit
 
accessory
 
products
 
use
 
something
 
other
 
than
 
Wi

Fi
 
for
 
RF
 
communication,
 
like
 
Lutron
 
Clear
 
Connect,
 
ZigBee,
 
or
 
Z

Wave,
 
the
 
message
 
gets
 
sent
 
to
 
the
 
products
 
gateway
 
(or
 
bridge)
 
device,
 
in
 
our
 
case
 
the
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
or
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
Pro,
 
which
 
then
 
sends
 
the
 
message
 
to
 
the
 
devices
 
(ex.
 
Caséta
 
Wireless
 
dimmers)

What
 
Lutron
 
hardware/software
 
is
 
required
 
for
 
HomeKit?
 
A

generation

(L

WH)
 
or
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
Pro
 
generation
 
2
 
(L

BDGPRO
2

WH)
 
is
 
required,
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
the
 
iOS
 
Lutron
 
App
 
for
 
Caséta
 
Wireless
 
version
 
2.2
 
or
 
later.
   
 
Note:
 
the
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
model
 
number
 
MUST
 
contain
 
a
 
“2”
 
in
 
it.
  
The
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridges
 
without
 
the
 
“2”
 
in
 
the
 
model
 
number
 
do
 
not
 
support
 
HomeKit.
  
With
 
the
 
exception
 
of
 
HomeKit
 
support,
 
all
 
other
 
features
 
remain
 
identical
 
for
 
generation
 
1
 
and
 
generation
 
2).
  
 
Will
 
my
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
work
 
with
 
HomeKit?
 
Check
 
the
 
model
 
number
 
on
 
the
 
bottom
 
of
 
your
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
and
 
check
 
that
 
it
 
starts
 
with
 
L

BDG2,
 
or
 
L

BDGPRO2.
 
These
 
models
 
support
 
HomeKit.
 
Lutron
 
added
 
additional
 
functionality
 
to
 
the
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
in
 
rev
 
2
 
hardware
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
support
 
HomeKit.
  
Otherwise
 
you
 
will
 
need
 
to
 
purchase
 
a
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
version
 
2
 
(L

BDG
2

WH)
 
or
 
Lutron
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
Pro
 
version
 
2
 
(L

BDGPRO
2

WH),
 
then
 
follow
 
the
 
steps
 
to
 
upgrade
 
within
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app.
 
Lutron
 
will
 
release
 
an
 
update
 
that
 
walks
 
through
 
the
 
upgrade.
 
 
Why
 
is
 
a
 
generation
 
2
 
Smart
 
Bridge
 
required
 
for
 
HomeKit?
 
Apple
 
requires
 
that
 
all
 
HomeKit
 
accessories
 
have
 
a
 
special
 
“chip”
 
built
 
into
 
it.
  
The
 
“chip”
 
is
 
called
 
an
 
MFi
 
coprocessor.
  
MFi
 
stands
 
for
 
Made
 
For
 
iPhone/iPod/iPad.
  
The
 
generation
 
2
 
Smart
 
Bridges
 
contain
 
the
 
Apple
 
MFi
 
chip,
 
but
 
the
 
generation
 
1
 
Smart
 
Bridges
 
do
 
not.
 
Other
 
than
 
HomeKit
 
support,
 
are
 
there
 
any
 
other
 
differences
 
between
 
generation
 
1
 
and
 
generation
 
2
 
Smart
 
Bridges?
 
No.
 
The
 
only
 
difference
 
between
 
gen
 
1
 
and
 
gen
 
2
 
Smart
 
Bridges
 
is
 
that
 
the
 
gen
 
2
 
Smart
 
Bridges
 
support
 
HomeKit.
  
All

The
 
Siri
 
Integration
 
menu
 
in
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app
 
is
 
also
 
where
 
you
 
need
 
to
 
go
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
create
 
rooms,
 
zones
 
and
 
add
 
additional
 
users
 
(rooms,
 
zones,
 
and
 
users
 
are
 
covered
 
later
 
in
 
this
 
FAQ).
 
 
Do
 
I
 
always
 
need
 
to
 
press
 
the
 
home
 
button
 
on
 
my
 
iOS
 
device
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
have
 
Siri
 
control
 
my
 
lights?
 
No,
 
there
 
is
 
a
 
feature
 
in
 
iOS
 
called
 
“Hey
 
Siri”,
 
which
 
can
 
be
 
turned
 
on
 
in
 
the
 
iOS
 
settings
 
menu
 
under
 
General
 ‐
>
 
Siri.
 
Enabling
 
this
 
feature
 
allows
 
you
 
to
 
speak
 
to
 
Siri
 
without
 
pressing
 
the
 
home
 
button
 
by
 
saying
 
“Hey
 
Siri”
 
when
 
your
 
device
 
is
 
connected
 
to
 
power.
  
For
 
example,
 
you
 
could
 
have
 
your
 
iPhone
 
charging
 
on
 
your
 
night
 
stand
 
and
 
before
 
going
 
to
 
bed
 
say,
 
“Hey
 
Siri,
 
turn
 
off
 
my
 
lights”
 
without
 
having
 
to
 
press
 
the
 
home
 
button.
 
How
 
does
 
Siri
 
know
 
which
 
rooms
 
my
 
lights
 
are
 
in?
 
Within
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app
 
in
 
the
 
Siri
 
Integration
 
menu,
 
you
 
need
 
to
 
create
 
“rooms”
 
and
 
“zones”
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
group
 
lights
 
into
 
rooms,
 
and
 
group
 
rooms
 
into
 
zones.
   
 
 
  What
 
is
 
a
 
“room”?
 
A
 
room
 
is
 
a
 
group
 
of
 
individual
 
lights
 
that
 
exist
 
in
 
the
 
same
 
area,
 
or
 
room.
  
For
 
example,
 
if
 
you
 
have
 
two
 
table
 
lamps
 
and
 
some
 
overhead
 
can
 
lights
 
in
 
your
 
family
 
room,
 
you
 
can
 
create
 
a
 
“Room”
 
called
 
Family
 
Room
 
in
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app
 
that
 
contains
 
that
 
group
 
of
 
lights.
 
The
 
benefit
 
of
 
creating
 
rooms
 
is
 
that
 
you
 
can
 
say
 
things
 
like,
 
“turn
 
on
 
my
 
family
 
room
 
lights”,
 
and
 
only
 
your
 
lights
 
in
 
the
 
family
 
room
 
will
 
turn
 
on,
 
and
 
no
 
other
 
lights
 
will
 
turn
 
on.

What
 
is
 
a
 
“zone”?
 
A
 
zone
 
is
 
a
 
group
 
of
 
rooms.
  
For
 
example,
 
if
 
you
 
created
 
a
 
few
 
rooms
 
in
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app
 
like
 
Family
 
Room,
 
Kitchen,
 
and
 
Dining
 
Room,
 
you
 
could
 
group
 
those
 
3
 
rooms
 
into
 
a
 
zone
 
called
 
Downstairs.
 
The
 
benefit
 
of
 
creating
 
zones
 
is
 
that
 
you
 
can
 
say
 
things
 
like,
 
“turn
 
off
 
my
 
downstairs
 
lights”,
 
and
 
all
 
the
 
lights
 
downstairs
 
in
 
your
 
family
 
room,
 
kitchen,
 
and
 
dining
 
room
 
will
 
turn
 
off.

Integration
 
option
 
in
 
the
 
Settings
 
within
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app
 
and
 
add
 
multiple
 
users.
  
When
 
inviting
 
other
 
users,
 
enter
 
their
 
iCloud
 
(not
 
iTunes)
 
Apple
 
ID.
 
Once
 
the
 
invitation
 
is
 
accepted,
 
they
 
will
 
also
 
be
 
able
 
to
 
control
 
the
 
lights
 
in
 
the

  Help
 
 
Tips
 
&
 
Limitations
 
1.

Siri
 
cannot
 
control
 
your
 
lights
 
by
 
name.
 
They
 
can
 
be
 
controlled
 
when
 
added
 
to
 
rooms
 
and
 
zones
 
in
 
the
 
Lutron
 
app.
  
2.

Siri
 
on
 
your
 
Apple
 
Watch
 
may
 
not
 
understand
 
commands
 
to
 
control
 
your
 
lights
 
at
 
this
 
time.
 
3.

If
 
Siri
 
misunderstands
 
a
 
command,
 
she
 
may
 
turn
 
on/off
 
ALL
 
lights
 
For
 
example,
 
if
 
you
 
ask
 
Siri
 
to
 
“turn
 
off
 
the
 
Upstairs
 
lights”
 
but
 
have
 
not
 
setup
 
any
 
room
 
or
 
zone
 
named
 
“Upstairs”
 
(or
 
if
 
it
 
was
 
named
 
incorrectly)
 
4.

Siri
 
will
 
turn
 
the
 
lights
 
to
 
100%
 
if
 
you
 
include
 
the
 
word
 
“On”,
 
for
 
example
 
"Turn
 
lights
 
on
 
to
 
50%."
 
5.

If
 
you
 
invite
 
another
 
iCloud
 
account
 
that
 
already
 
has
 
a
 
HomeKit
 
home
 
with
 
the
 
same
 
name
 
as
 
yours,
 
the
 
names
 
will
 
overlap
 
and
 
you
 
may
 
only
 
see
 
one
 
of
 
the
 
homes.
  
Workaround:
 
Change
 
the
 
name
 
of
 
one
 
of
 
the
 
homes
 
6.

It
 
takes
 
about
 
one
 
minute
 
for
 
Siri
 
to
 
understand
 
the
 
names
 
or
 
rooms/zones
 
after
 
they
 
are
 
saved
 
 
Troubleshooting
 
1.

When
 
the
 
app
 
is
 
first
 
launched,
 
it
 
will
 
ask
 
for
 
access
 
to
 
Home
 
Data.
 
If
 
this
 
is
 
denied,
 
it
 
can
 
be
 
re

added
