The Lutron Caseta In-Wall Light Dimmer Switch (PD-6WCL) supports up to 150 watt dimmable LED or CFL bulbs or 600 watt incandescent or halogen bulbs. The ability for this dimmer to operate without a neutral sets it apart from other "smart" dimmers that require this additional wiring step.
The light dimmer switch mounts to the wall in place of a standard light switch. No neutral switch is required, which makes this dimmer almost universal, even in older homes. The in-wall switch has buttons for toggling the lights on and off (top and bottom) and center buttons with up and down arrows for dimming the lights. The dimming ability will rely on the bulbs being dimmable. A Lutron Pico Remote can be used to control the in-wall switch from up to 60 feet away. This is a purely wireless connection, making it a virtual 3-way without the need of a Traveler Wire. This can mean huge savings when it comes to adding 3-way control, as there is no need for an electrician to snake a wire from switch to switch!
Remote access and voice control through a smart assistant both require that a Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge be added to the setup. The bridge requires a hardwired ethernet connection from the WIFI router. Voice commands can be sent through a smart assistant locally, or the lights can be controlled remotely by using the Luton Mobile App or Apple HomeKit. Lutron is compatible with Apple's Siri, Google Home and Amazon Alexa for voice commands. Since the Honeywell Lyric Security Controller now supports Apple HomeKit on firmware revision 1.07, Lutron Caseta Lights can be integrated in automated rules using Lyric security actions. This means that arming/disarming the system or even opening the front door can be used as trigger points to run a lighting scene or to turn a specific light on or off!
Note: The dimmer can also be integrated with Alarm.com if a Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge PRO is used. Unfortunately, the PRO model is not available for online purchase at this time. But the standard model will work just fine if a user does not intend to use Alarm.com with their Lutron Light Switches.
