Questions & Answers

Could I use 2 Maestro MACL-153M IV in stead of using the Maestro companion in a 3 way setup?

Asked by: Matt
No, that will not work. I just tried to use two MACL-153's in a three way and it didn't work. I called Lutron and they said if you use two MACL-153's they will "fight with eachother". You must use the companion.

Does my second dimmer have to be a "companion" or can it be any other lutron dimmer?

I have read the manual it states that I need a companion but prefer to use a different dimmer for my secondary dimmer.
Asked by: THEkine
The Maestro Multi-location dimmer is designed to work with the companion dimmers, and any mechanical switch in a <= 3 way application. While I have used a Leviton slide dimmer inline with the Maestro, I had humming and finicky operations. I could not tell if the issue was the Leviton, Maestro or my lamps. So, I just replaced the slaves with a compatible companion dimmer and all was well. I have not tried a regular Lutron dimmer, so YMMV.

This doesn't work with LED/CFL? The Maestro master switch works for both Incandescent and LED but this only lists incandescent. Is there one specifically for LED?
Asked by: Mikeypoo
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.

When using the master with a standard on/off switch, will up always be the on position for both the master and standard switch?
Asked by: Peter
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.

Maestro Companion Multi-Location Dimmer - White is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This companion dimmer is necessary in order to dim the... This companion dimmer is necessary in order to dim the lights from two or more locations. It is not available in stores, and the instructions for the Maestro master dimmer are so voluminous it is easy to not realize the companion is needed. We first used a regular dimmer with the master and it only worked "independently" when the master was turned on. Nearly useless. While the companion is worth the cost and time to have it shipped, it would have been great to have it available in the store. Note, the store does carry a set of master and companion as well as master switches, though it was not on the shelves when we shopped. Not being master electricians, we bought the master and the regular dimmer as the box the master came in made no mention of a dedicated companion.

I spent an extra 90 minutes troubleshooting my 3-way switch circuit due to an undocumented programming mode setting configured on the dimmer.

Over time, I have replaced over thirty canned incandescent light bulbs with replacement LED canned lights in my house. All lights were installed with Lutron dimmers so I needed to replace the respective dimmers with Lutron LED compatible dimmers. I have a multi-location dimmer (two–way switch) in my hallway and upon installation, I realized the two MACL-153MH dimmers weren’t working. I called Lutron Technical Support and in less than two-minutes of waiting, the Technical Specialist stated I needed the MACL-153MH Dimmer paired with the MA-R Dimmer. I checked the online store inventory and realized the MA-R Dimmer was a “special order” item so placed the order online. I had the order shipped to my local store and the dimmer arrived within four business days. I have since installed one (1) MACL-153MH Dimmer along with one (1) MA-R Dimmer and both dimmers work perfectly. Thank you Lutron Technical Support! I understand that the MA-R (SKU # 1000520038) may not sell as often, but I would recommend that every Home Depot store keep a minimum inventory of MA-R Dimmers in stock.

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.
