Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJohnson Does what other dimmers can't
I have four light circuits in my home with three or more switches. Before the Maestro dimmer it was not possible to have all switches function properly after adding a conventional dimmer. These dimmers were easy to install, work flawlessly and allow the circuit to be fully controlled from any switch. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stan Works great controlling LEDs and halogen bulbs from both locations
I've used this dimmer in several locations. It works great controlling my LED and halogen lamps. I don't have any CFLs so I can't comment on how it controls those. It provides full control from both locations, which is very convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jer Excellent 3-Way dimmer switch
Clever design allows user to dim lights from either switch location. Switches are easy to use. Appearance is attractive. I have installed these in all 3-way locations in my house. Be sure to turn off circuit breaker when installing to avoid damage to device. (I ruined one by not doing this...)

Love the 3-way dimables from Lutron. I have installed them in every room in my home. Some single pole in the bedrooms and three way in the living room, dining room, foyer, kitchen, man cave and hallway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulN Lutron Maestro Dimmer Kit
What a great dimmer switch kit! Took all of 30 minutes to install both switches. Super easy for me as I already had a dual (two location) switch set-up and all I had to do is swap the old switches to the new dimmers. All wire connections on the old switches had the same set up / layout as these new ones. I didn’t even need the instructions. They are however provided and are fairly good and easy to understand. The instructions are printed on a large sheet that’s folded many times to fit the packaging. Much clearer instructions could be found on the HomeDepot website in the product Overview section.
Took me a minute to figure out how to remove the face-plate off the switch. All you have to do is pull it off from the top or bottom with your nails. It’s much harder to pull it off from the sides and may break the tiny holding clamps. The clip-on face-plate is a nice touch as it hides the mounting screws and provides a very clean and sleek look.
The features and operation are well designed. Single press / tap anywhere on the switch (button) to turn ON and the lights go on full brightness. Press the button again to turn OFF and the lights will dim and shut off. The button reacts well regardless of where it’s pressed. The rocker switch on the side works well too. Press up to increase the light level and down to dim the lights. The Master switch has an LED light-strip on the left side to indicate the light level and switch operation. It consists of 7 pin-holes that are backlit by green LEDs. When the main lights are OFF, the entire light-strip is dimly backlit. When the lights are ON, only one of the light-strip LEDs is light corresponding to the main light level / setting.
Additional features: You can program the master switch to only turn on to a certain light level instead of full brightness (see instructions). Double tap the switch to bring the light level from dimmed to full brightness. The switches also remember the light level that was on when the lights were turned off. When turned back on it will resume that light level. There is also a pullout switch on the bottom of the main on/off button called FASS. It stands for Front Accessible Service Switch. If you need to replace a light bulb or the light fixture itself, there’s no need to go to the main breaker box to shut off the switch. Simply pull out the FASS tab to completely disable the switch and electricity flow. Great job LUTRON!
Small down sides:
No instructions on how to remove the face plate from the switch. I figured it out, but others may not and could break it while trying to detach. Also, would have been nice if it came packaged in a box instead of a clam-shell. Would be easier to open, store spare parts inside and some of the printed material (warranty info, part number, etc.) could be printed on the box for future reference.
Nonetheless, a great 5-star product!

Maestro CFL-LED Dimmer Kit was really easy to install. We would buy it again and could recommend it to friends and neighbors.

These dimmers are very modern and control compact fluorescent (CFLs) and LED bulbs equally well. In my studio I switched to CFLs some years back and actually couldn't use the dimmers I had because they would either turn the lights on or off, but couldn't dim them. I got used to no dimmers, but always wanted the dimming capabilities. Now I've switched to LEDs to save even more electricity but installed these high tech dimmers and man what a difference. They work great, easy to install and I love the soft turn on and off feature. They remember what light level you last used when switched on again, and make no noise. Oh yea, the clip on cover plate is real nice, too, as you don't see any screws. They're a little expensive, but you get what you pay for.
