Depending on size of your house and power of your wifi these switches will work great. I have one in an outside barn that is about 60 feet or more from the wifi gateway.

Answer

The Caseta Wireless system is compatible with a variety of Honeywell thermostats. You can see which ones by visiting the Caseta Wireless website here: https://www.casetawireless.com/works-with. The Honeywell thermostats will need to be setup in the Honeywell app initially, and then integrated via the Lutron app.

Asked by Control4Newbie August 7, 2020

Answers

Bridge is the same as a hub. An extender or repeater can expand the distance from bridge but my bridge seems to have a great connection to wifi. I never have issues with disconnections as with other devices I have in my home. When app is not using your home wifi, it can either use other wifi where you are or use cellular connection. The app connects the hub though the internet so as long as you can connect to the internet with your phone app you can turn lights on or off etc.

Why do I need a bridge?

Asked by Ryan May 28, 2020
2
Answers

The Smart Bridge allows you to control your Caséta Wireless controls and Lutron Serena® remote controlled shades from anywhere with your smartphone, using the free Lutron App for Caséta Wireless. The bridge provides multiple benefits over Wi-Fi products: It is ultra-fast and reliable ensuring your lights react instantly every time you adjust them from the app or Pico remote control. The bridge prevents the cluttering of your Wi-Fi network by acting as the single point of connection to the cloud. It is also easier to set-up and enables more local control/integrations with other smart home products.

Currently, Caseta cannot integrate with a garage door opener directly. However, it is quite possible that a third party integration partner may be able to. Please visit www.casetawireless.com/integration for more information.

This systems is fantastic! Our drapes and window shades are also controlled by Lutron Caseta system, as is our house lights, Christmas tree, window candles, outdoor lights, etc. We control the system from our iPhone App as well as controllers. We have the App set to automatically turn on/off lights with sunset/sunrise. The system adjusts automatically daily based on sunrise/set. You do not have to do anything - your lights will come on, and drapes and shades close, at the appropriate time (sunset). I love the setting for when I pull out (or walk out) of the driveway, leaving the area, in the car or on foot (with iPhone) the designated house lights go off and when I pull back in the driveway the designated lights turn back on. This is the geofencing capability and it works perfectly. My husband no longer complains of me burning the lights unneccesarily! When we are out of town we use the App to change things up back home. We have the system connected with our Apple TV and interface using it as well. If we have a wifi or power loss the Castea system reconnects on it's own effortlessly! No hands on from us needed. My husband raves about how reliable Caseta is and how easy it was to set up and modify and use. We are very, very pleased with this system.

Bridge works as advertised. I bought it from Hone Depot for delivery. Would suggest buying it elsewhere, Hone Depot's delivery was excessively delayed.

Lutron dirty little secret!
Today I tried to connect the Caseta Wireless Smart Bridge. It is not so wireless as they lead you to believe. First you must connect it directly to your router with a network cable. This is not my definition of wireless. Second, you must literally connect it directly to your router and not go through a IP switch or hub. If your router does not have available IP outlets it will not work when connected thru an IP switch. No ware on its web site or in the instructions does it tell you this fact. Lutron has no plans to resolve this major problem. I suspect Lutron will need to develop a new device to solve the problem. If you can work around this problem it work fine.Buyer beware, you must have a available IP outlet on your router to use this device!

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your detailed feedback. There are certain network configurations that do require a direct connection to the router, others can be connected elsewhere in the network. The bridge provides multiple benefits over Wi-Fi products: It is ultra-fast and reliable ensuring your lights react instantly every time you adjust them from the app or Pico remote control. The bridge prevents the cluttering of your Wi-Fi network by acting as the single point of connection to the cloud.
