Replacing every light in your home with smart bulbs can get expensive quickly, which makes smart dimmers and switches an appealing option for multi-bulb light fixtures. For dimmable fixtures, Lutron’s Caséta Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit is the best you can buy right now.
The sleek lighting system sets up in minutes and works with all three major smart home ecosystems: Amazon Echo, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home. Additional integrations with Ring, SmartThings, Logitech, IFTTT, Sonos, and more make this one of the more expansive smart home lighting setups on the market.
It also does not require a neutral wire like most smart dimmer switches. Neutral wires are uncommon in older homes, making this dimmer switch a compatible choice for your home’s electrical wiring no matter the age.
Although there’s no native three-way switch support (where you have multiple switches for the same light), Lutron offers Pico wireless remote kits to mount its remotes over additional switch boxes, which is included in the dimmer starter kit. The kit also includes the required hub. While additional hardware isn’t usually a selling point, Lutron’s system is sleek, smart, and versatile enough for anyone to use.
