Lutron's Caséta Wireless is an easy DIY lighting system that supports up to 50 devices. The system replaces regular outlets and light switches with smart dimmer switches and wireless remote controls, all connected via the wireless smart bridge and controlled via a free smartphone app.

Caséta integrates with all major voice assistants, various DIY automation systems, and other smart products. Between those integrations and the other smart features, it's one of the most versatile smart home lighting solutions out there.

Features of Caséta by Lutron


Considering what the system can do, installation is impressively quick and easy. The Smart Bridge requires that you only plug it into your router and a wall outlet; The rest of the configuration happens in the application. Installing a switch is as simple as turning off the switch you're replacing, removing it, putting in the new switch, and adding the motherboard. Turn the device back on and it is ready to go.

Remote access and control

Through the app (for iOS and Android), you can name individual lights, group lights by room, and create automation events. The app itself is easy to navigate and well organized.


Caséta comes with a georeferencing feature, which means that when it detects your smartphone within a certain range of the house, it will turn on the lights to bring you into a bright home. Once you leave that range, Caséta turns off the lights.

Security Mode

If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time or away from home at night, you can turn on Safe Mode. This will run your lights on a schedule that makes it look like you're home, adding a layer of security.

Three way switches

One advantage Caséta has over competing systems is that it works with three-way switches. If your home has two light switches that control the same light (for example, a light switch at the top and bottom of the stairs), a Lutron switch and Pico remote will allow you to control the light from any location.


Caséta can not only integrate with other home automation systems, but also connects directly with all major voice assistance platforms and protocols:

  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Home
  • Apple HomePod
  • Sonos One
  • Samsung SmartThings
  • Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats
  • wink
  • Nest
  • ecobee Wi-Fi thermostats

With so many integrations, your options for creating home security and automation “scenes” or events are almost limitless. You can ask your voice assistant to turn the lights on or off; You can set a schedule to turn on the lights automatically when you get home or at a specific time of day; You can even activate security mode to schedule the lights to come on at regular intervals.

Caséta Wireless products: where to start and how to expand

Caséta's wireless system sounds amazing, but where to start? We recommend starting with a kit to bundle multiple products, but you can also build your system piece by piece.


Lutron Caseta Wireless Smart BridgeASL Tip
The Smart Bridge is the center of the Caséta wireless system and is essential for everything to work together. The Smart Bridge plugs directly into your router and a wall outlet (the rest of the setup is done in the Lutron app) and controls up to 50 Caséta wireless devices. You can purchase the bridge separately or as part of a starter kit.


The Smart Bridge and all Caséta products use Lutron's Clear Connect RF technology to connect to each other. This is a silent radio frequency that does not interfere with Wi-Fi enabled devices.

Basic Kit: Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit

Smart Lighting Switch Starter KitASL Tip
We definitely recommend using a starter kit to begin your smart lighting transformation. The Caséta Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit includes a switch and remote control, as well as the Smart Bridge needed to get started.

The dimmer dimmer regulates up to 17 bulbs, including LED, incandescent, and halogen bulbs, which should be more than enough for the main rooms in an average-sized home. The kit gives you the option to control the lights from the switch itself, from the remote control, from your smartphone, or even from your home voice assistant speaker.


Why should I use a dimmer? 

If you don't need to replace regular light switches with dimmers, consider this: If you dim a bulb by 10%, you're using 10% less energy, which extends the life of the bulb. You save money on both energy costs and light bulb replacements.

Plug & play: Smart Lighting Lamp Dimmer Basic Kit

Dimmer Smart Lighting Lamp Starter Kit
If you have a room that relies primarily on lamps for lighting, the Smart Lighting Lighting Starter Kit is for you. This kit comes with two dimmers that plug directly into wall outlets, two remote controls with tabletop pedestals, and the smart bridge.

Each dimmer can control up to two lamps, giving you access to four lamps with one kit. With this kit, you can control the lamps as easily as a ceiling light from your smartphone, and the remote pedestals make it easy to locate the remote controls.

Once you have a Smart Bridge, you can add dimmer switches throughout your home. This kit comes with a single dimmer and a remote control, allowing you to expand your control to another part of your home. Even without the Smart Bridge, the dimmer works manually and the remote control allows you to control the lights from anywhere. If you want to access a smartphone you will need the Bridge.

Smart Lighting Lamp Dimmer and Remote Control Kit

Like the Dimmer Switch and Remote Kit, the Smart Lighting Lamp Dimmer and Remote Kit can expand your Caséta wireless system with the separate purchase of a Smart Bridge, or can be used as a standalone lamp dimmer. One dimmer controls up to two lamps and the remote works anywhere in the house.

Smart lighting switch for all types of bulbs and fans

Lutron PD-6ANS-WH Caseta 6A
Unlike the other switches, this one only turns lights and ceiling fans on or off and does not have any dimming capabilities. However, it is a great solution for light bulbs, light fixtures, or ceiling fans that need a more basic switch.

If you add the Smart Bridge, you can turn those lights on or off from your smartphone. You can also purchase a two-button remote control separately for on/off control. Head Up: This is a switch that requires a neutral wire during installation.

Lutron Professional Smart Lighting System

If you prefer to go big with a professional whole-home smart lighting system instead of a DIY approach, choose RadioRa2 or RadioRa salect . This professionally installed system supports up to 100 devices in your home, including dimmers, switches, shades, and fans.

Like Caséta Wireless, RA2 Select integrates with other home automation systems and voice assistants, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Apple HomeKit, Sonos One, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT. It is also compatible with several professional home automation systems, including Control 4, Crestron and Savant, CommandFusion, among others.

Lutron Caséta Wireless vs. Philips Hue

When you think of smart lighting, you probably think of smart bulbs, and one of the best smart bulb brands is Philips Hue.

The difference between Philips Hue and the Caséta Wireless system is that Hue focuses on LED bulbs that you can control directly from your smartphone, while Caséta Wireless is all about dimmers and not the bulbs.

Both systems have advantages, but if you want to add some smart lighting to your home, we recommend starting with Phillips Hue smart bulbs . You can do a lot with them, they last a long time and fit perfectly into larger smart home systems. If you're looking for a lighting system, not just smart bulbs, Lutron's Caséta Wireless may be exactly what you need.
