Customer Questions & Answers

We have oil rubbed bronze face plates. Can we replace the face plate on this maestro to match what we already have?

Asked by: TR11
Yes, any "decor-style" faceplate will work. The switch itself is what it is and cannot be changed from what is purchased.

Does this kit require a neutral wire?

My current switches only have a white and black wire. Will this kit work as intended without a neutral wire?
Asked by: mtkev504
No, it does not connect to or use the white neutral. It does require a good ground.

Can these switches be used indpendently/separately?

I want to use one switch in one room and the other in another room to control independent LED lighting. I realize that one switch has the level light indicators and the other one does not.
Asked by: Bailey
If you buy the kit that contains a master and slave, they must be used together. They cannot be used independently.

Maestro 150-Watt Multi-Location Digital CFL-LED Dimmer Kit - White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should own these dimmers I replace every light that goes out with a dimmable LED bulb. I have skipped CFLs, since they have to warm up, and then are hard to dispose when done. I installed these dimmers all over the first floor of my home; on LED canlights, LED bulbs in ceiling fixtures, and in incandescent chandeliers that are still left in my new house. I will switch them to LED when they go out, but this dimmer still dims them for now, too. I love the dimmers and they work great. I love the features of this switch, as it comes on to a favorite level, and the fade off is great when leaving a room. Everyone should get these dimmers and install LED lights. The only negative is that my family and friends can't figure out how to operate them, since they don't move like a normal rocker of flip switch. Just push the button! I also wanted to note that I have several brands of LED bulbs around the house. Check the Lutron website for a list of compatible bulbs. For me, I found Sylvania bulbs that have a great dimming range, including down very low like a nightlight. I have some Utilitech bulbs that work well in the higher ranges, but won't go very low. I also have some Ecosmart can lights, and they work great too. Overall, I love these switches and LED lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installed as expected Three way switch can be a bit tricky... As a novice I take a photo of the switch that I am replacing to help in installing the new one. After I have preserved what it looks like before I try to "fix it" I replace one wire at a time. The only difficulty is trying to fit the new dimmer switch into the existing box. The new switch is a bit bulky and it is a good idea to compress the wires in the box first. I use a wooden carpenter's pencil to do the trick. Then I finish off the job by screwing in the new dimmer switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit This kit works great. I did have a few issues installing, but one call to Lutron (24/7) set me straight. I am using this kit with the Ecosmart Eco-575L LED lights. They are a perfectly compatible. I tried the Lithonia LED's 6BPMW M4 and they are incompatible. The Lithonia's will not dim completely or even shut off, which is why I called he support line. There was always a faint glow no matter what. With the Ecosmart 575L, I have no issues at all. I really like how you can set the time it takes to turn off and on. They will gradually dim off and on depending on the time you set. I also enjoy that the companion dimmer acts exactly like the main dimmer when you push off and on. Two wishes, (1) if the companion had the indicator lights as well, but not a deal breaker.(2) clearer instructions on the programming (get the pdf from online) and installation. Go online and download the advanced programming instructions, This will help you get into the setting for: - high end trim - how high your lights can go without flicker (mine set full) - low end trim - how low your lights can go without flicker, (ecosmart 575L have no issues and turn all the way off, i set mine to have a faint glow at the end) - fade on time - how long it takes the lights to get to desired brightness( mine set at 3 sec) - fade off time - how long it takes the lights to turn off (mine set at 3 sec) -preset light level - you can preset the brightness to a certain level, not all the way on ( mine set at 80%) Double tapping the switch causes the lights to go 100% -glowing indicator night lights - on or off ( mine set at on) Wiring install on 3 way switches: -Red wire -> Blue screw -Black wire -> Brass screw -Common -> Black screw -Ground -> Green screw Companion switch is wired exactly the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Reduces Maximum Brightness I replaced a standard 3-way set of switches with this Lutron product, but found maximum brightness 25% less than the standard switch. It only operated a pair of CFL lights (23 watts each, 46 watts total), using bulbs that were on the Lutron compatible bulb list. I immediately noticed that when the Lutron dimmer was set to maximum, the CFLs were noticeably less bright than before. I used a light meter to measure output, then switched back to the old 3-way switch. The light meter confirmed what my eyes saw; the CFLs were 25% brighter with the standard switch. I plan on returning the Lutrons to Home Depot for a different brand, as I would still like to have multi-location dimming. The Lutron dimmers worked as promised otherwise, with nice gradual on, dimming set-point memory, and programmable dimming range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Switching to LED Lights This dimmer set works well with LEDs and other incandescent and halogen lights. Non-dimmable CFLs work with it too, but they don't come on until the dimmer reaches full output. The instructions are not complete and you need to go on line to see how to find the wiring diagrams for a three way or four way circuit. Don't mis-wire or short the main dimmer or any of the companions because it will blow a component in the main dimmer that can't be reset or repaired, and the dimmer isn't returnable if that happens. These dimmer sets are quite expensive and for that reason I rate the value as average. I found Home Depot to be competitive relative to others selling the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Product I have dimmer and companion control (looks and acts just like the dimmer it controls) installed to dim 4 Cree 9.5w BR30 floods (also purchased from HD) in my home office. Dimmer provides full range of dimming, IF you read the directions thoroughly and adjust the low range of the dimmer. No hum, no heat, excellent product. Photo shows companion control. I will install more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works as it says Have a couple of these and they work flawlessly. No hums with led lights (Sylvania lights) and i added a 3rd companion to make every entrance light capable. One is the brain cant remember model number and the others are lighter. Only 1 brain can be on the circuit. Found that in fine print after having some non working issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have installed it for my chandelier on my stairs, installation took me an hour removing old dimmer and installing new one, there is no issue with brightness ( it could be adjusted to max. By holding center button and top dimmer button) the good thing about this system is that we have dimmer function at both ends. I have to do one more of these for my kitchen recessed lights also which will be connected to all LED lights, In all I have two set of these and two separate dimmers same style for other location in the house. A little tap will turn lights on and off, the led indicator for the dimmer level will be lit in dark to locate the switch and looks very elegant in dark, lights turns on and off gradually (theater dimming) the price is good considering these are two separate dimmers, the face plate has hidden screw design and very easy to install, it is easy to remove also, I hope it won't be needed, I recommend to get some extra face covers for future if they need to replace for worn out reasons, I got one for mine. Over all I am very happy with it,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Energy Efficiency Enthuiasts Dimmer switches that work with LED and CFL bulbs--at last! We were so excited to find this PAIR of dimmer switches for our family room. Since the room has 2 entrances, dual dimmer switches are perfect for us. The light fixture in the room has LEDs, so it was important for us to find a product that was compatible with energy efficient bulbs. The white color is clean and the design is simple. A perfect addition to any room. The instructions are simple to follow and the switches are a snap to install!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works very nicely, but, within a year or so failed and needed replacement. Worked very well for about a year, but, TBD if there were spikes on the power lines, but, just failed in the on dim position. This then required that I have to buy another set to replace it. Very disappointed that the item failed. Very pleased with the item functionality. Quality parts use is questionable.
