Can you connect the ground wire into the neutral when using one of these switches along with a standard switch in a 3-way configuration?

I have no ground in my switch boxes. I have used these just by themselves and wired the ground into the neutral and it works perfectly. Tried one of the 5 amp switches for a 3 way config and couldnt get it to work.

Unfortunately Lutron cannot recommend tying in the ground connection into the neutral in any application. The dimming sensor, model MSCL-OP153M-WH, can be used without a ground connection, however you will want to ensure the load you are using is dimmable.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great sensor, skimped on parts The sensor works great - it's actually sensitive enough to detect your presence unlike many other types of sensors I've tried. Installation was easy, even for a first-timer trying to install as a 3-pole configuration into a complex/crammed 3 switch box. The problem is that this kit doesn't come with enough of the large (yellow) wire nuts to safely install the whole system in a 3 pole configuration. You need all four of the large wire nuts to connect the sensor switch in its 3 pole configuration, leaving only the tiny blue nut to twist together three heavy gauge wires for the modified physical switch on the other end. Swapping the blue one for a yellow one is still not good because the blue one is too small to adequately protect the wires on the sensor switch from accidentally touching another wire in the box and shorting. It would have been nice if they hadn't skimped and just supplied you with five full sized wire nuts. Now I have to make another trip (considerably out of the way) to the nearest hardware store just to pick up the right sized wire nut. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly As Described Another excellent Lutron product!! After one of my employees hooked 4 of these up in a client's home, he informed me one was not working and that it was "bad out of the box". I have installed over 300 of their products and have never come across a bad unit. After double checking everything, I thought the perfect streak was over, but low and behold, the ground wire was disconnected in another switch box, so this unit technically did not have an earth ground (even though the ground wire was connected to this sensor). Once this was fixed, it worked perfectly. KEY POINT: These units MUST have a proper ground connected to function properly. If it appears it is not working properly, check the ground! If you EVER think you have a bad Lutron product out of the box, I would highly suggest double checking the installation. Lastly another reviewer complained that there was not enough large wire nuts included for their installation, but no manufacturer can supply everything you may need. We have all been in this situation and it stinks, but we must take responsibility to be informed and prepared for project that we are about to do. Not to mention, the packaging on this product is clear plastic (so you can see what is included and what is not :) Cheers October 13, 2014
