A: This is only a mounting bracket for the pico remote. It lets you mount it on the wall like a wall switch.
A: This is not a switch but a backplate for a Lutron wireless Pico Remote. For Lutron Switch colors, you can find them on the Lutron website: https://www.lutron.com/en-US/Residential-Commercial-Solutions/Pages/Residential-Solutions/ColorStyleFabrics/Color.aspx Most common colors sold at Home Depot is Almond and White.
A: This is not a switch, just a holder for the pico unit and it is made out of clear plastic.
A: The PICO-WBX-ADAPT is a clear plastic bracket that holds a Pico remote in place. Pico remotes are available in black, however.
A: You can but it won't be flush with the existing switch faceplate. The Pico switch sits on the surface by 1/8" approximately. You'll need to cut the dry wall back this same amount to make it appear to be a 3 gang box.
A: So, to answer my own question. Yes, this can be done. In two locations we added a remote to a previous 2 gang and made them 3 gang and they are both with the other 2 caseta outlets flush. No need to cut into drywall like jchan suggested! Simply remove cover plate off bracket. As you can see from pictures, you can’t tell which switch is just a remote under switch plate.
A: I had the same situation that you do, single light switch was at one end of room and two switches controlling other lights were at other side of room. I wanted to add third switch to those two. Very easy to do. Buy a 3 gang wall plate and add pico unit to third position and cover 2 other switches with rest of wall plate. If screws mounting pico adapter to wall plate are too long then drill shallow holes behind them. Do Not mount pico adapter to wall, only the face plate.

A: What is a Pico adaptor? Can you provide model number please?
A: Yes, this could be mounted directly to the wall. This kit will actually include anchors and screw for mounting to the wall if desired. Please see the following installation guide for more information: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/WallBoxAdapterInstallationInstructions.pdf
A: Yes it can, I have one mounted that way in my home.
A: Yes, this bracket can be installed directly on the wall and then covered with a standard wall switch plate. Easy to install just about anywhere. I have also installed next to an existing wall switch and then covered with a larger wall plate (i.e. place next to an existing single or double wall switch and cover with a new double or triple wall plate). Hope this helps.
A: it has been a while, but I mounted 3 switches (one of them the remote) to a 2 box outlet (these 2 where wired in) I don't remember if I had to get a different plate or not. someone at home depot should be able to help you. I do know they have single mounts that you can mount to almost any wall with out having to cut it out.
A: Mount directly to wall if no box present. No need for anchors, use any small screw into drywall- will hold fine under wall plate. Pico weights practically nothing. That is one of the best features of the pico.
A: I mounted mine directly to the wall. It also has a wall plate that goes over it making it look like a normal installation.
A: You can mount directly to the wall.
A: Yes it can be mounted to the wall without a box.
A: You can. It comes with some blue drywall anchors. Make sure you get the faceplate otherwise it does not look like a wall switch/dimmer.
A: It is recommended to use this bracket when mounting the Pico remote to a wall and covering with a wallplate. The PICO-WBX-ADAPT has screw holes which are used to mount the wallplate to it.
A: Yes, these are the exact circumstances that you need this wall plate. I have done it several times and it works very well.
A: Not really sure you can try it and always add the bracket if it didn't work...I used the bracket with a wall plate single gang cover.
A: I don’t think it would fit inside a junction box.
A: I highly suggest the bracket. There is adhesive tape on the plastic shield on the bottom of the remote. I think you'll find it is not too sticky. Plus the bracket makes sure the remote aligns perfectly in the switchplate. I have one of these in a 3 switch plate config, 2 are real Lutron Caseta switches, but you can't tell the difference. One final note, you have to remove the plastic tab the adhesive is on to mount the remote on the bracket if you do decide to buy it. For what I paid for the rest of my smart home gear, this was by far the cheapest and biggest no brainer (after the remote kept falling off the wall.) ;)
A: You only need the bracket if you are going to install the Pico in a gang box. I installed a few where I either widened the hole and put in a larger box or just added an additional switch in a more convenient location (can’t tell it’s not an actual paddle switch). This was really nice because it would have been a 4 way and running the extra wires through the wall would have been a chore. You may consider using Velcro if you aren’t going to use the box so you can move the Pico around (the only draw back of installing in gang box).
A: It won’t sit flush with the wired switch if you use the 2 gang plate on a 1 gang backbox. You’ll need this bracket for it to land in the correct position depth wise. If the back box is for a single switch I recommend either cutting the wall or just mount the PICO using a separate bracket and wall plate. See attached photo for a commercial PICO remote install into a bare wall with bracket and faceplate.
