Does it matter which switch box the companion is placed in? Does the current need to go through the master switch first?

The MA-R can be use in either location when being used with an MACL-153M in a 3 way or multi-location application. For more information on wiring, please visit the spec sheet of the MACL-153M. https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369613a.pdf For additional assistance, please reach out to our Support Team at support@Lutron.com or by phone at 1 (844) 588-7661.

The MA-R and MA-RR are the same companion dimmer. These do not have a rating for a lighting load as their only purpose is to send commands back to the MACL-153M.

The Maestro Companion dimmer isn't made to connect to a phone. It's made to connect to the Maestro multi-location dimmer to provide additional control locations for lighting.

Answer

Since this product is only the companion and does not work on its own, it does not actually effect the load. As long as the master control that you are pairing this device with is rated to control LED lights, then you should have no issues.

Answer

When the master Maestro product, such as the MACL-153M, is in a three way with a mechanical switch, it can work like a standard three way application. In order to accomplish this, you will need to re-wire the mechanical switch as per the MACL-153M's instructions and then program the dimmer to communicate with the mechanical switch.

The feature I like best on this product is the brightness control, it allows you to set up the lights at the mood your in. the thing I don't like is that the on and off function sometimes interfere with the brightness setting and also sometimes you have to press the on and off bottom a couple of times before you can turn the lights off. My electrician installed these dimmers in three different places in my kitchen and I'm still trying to get the on and off function to work consistently. It does not quite meets my expectations.

The dimmer worth recommending
We recently remodeled our kitchen and installed LED lighting. We purchased the Lutron Maestro Multi-Location Dimmer with the Maestro Companion. We wanted to have a dimmer for the LEDs because they offer a considerable amount of light. Until we saw the Lutron Maestro Multi-Location Dimmers, the solution was to only control the dimming from one location. With the Lutron Maestro Multi-Location Dimmers, not only can we control the dimming from two locations, each controller remembers the setting last used. Very cool! The instructions were very comprehensible and allowed me to easily install and configure. We liked these controllers so much, we bought another controller for our dinette lighting.
