The Lutron Caseta PD-6ANS In-Wall Neutral Smart Switch is a super reliable smart lighting device. The in-wall smart lighting switch will provide support for up to a 720 watt load for incandescent, halogen, ELV or MLV bulbs, 6 amps for LED or CFL bulbs, and 3.6 amps for a ceiling fan.
The in-wall switch should be mounted on the wall in place of the existing light switch. A neutral wire is required to complete the installation process. Therefore, it will require line voltage (110VAC), neutral, load and ground connections. The switch will provide easy access for controlling the lights or the ceiling fan when the user in the room. But the real exciting feature of the Lutron In-Wall Switch is to integrate the lights or ceiling fans with the rest of the smart home setup. There are Pico remotes that offer wireless "3-way" control, which can mean huge cost savings in terms of electrical work. For ultimate functionality, we also recommend adding a Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge.
By using a Lutron Smart Bridge, a user can control their Lutron In-Wall Smart Switch from a remote location using the Lutron Mobile App or Apple HomeKit. This will allow the user to control their lights or ceiling fan from essentially anywhere in the world. And since the smart bridge integrates with HomeKit, Google Home and Amazon Alexa, a user can also control their lights using voice commands. A smart bridge will also allow the user to integrate the smart switch with a Honeywell Lyric Controller. Since the Lyric support Apple HomeKit on MR7 firmware or higher, security actions such arming or opening a door can be utilized as triggers for automated rules within the Apple Home App.
