rough wiring for maestro dimmer and 2 companions what wire do I need 14/3 or 14/2 will be running 12 halo 6" LEDs ( hlbsl )

Asked by cory February 17, 2021
2
Answers

The wiring description indicates a four-way (three switches and a load). Assuming a 15 amp circuit, use 14/3(w/ ground) between switches and 14/2(w/ground) from the source and to the load (in this case the lights). With your use of one master and two companions, the companions communicate with the master via the "third" wire hence the use of 14/3 between the switches.

It works fine with just a normal switch. You do have to rewire it though.

Answer

For a 4-way application, the MACL-153M and two MA-R will be required. You can see an illustration of the wiring here: https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/368-4493_Page_15.pdf.

Any way to add WiFi? I have the Maestro setup in a 4 Way configuration. Is there a wifi switch that can replace one of the companion switches?

Asked by Mike March 2, 2020

Answer

The MACL-153M and companion MA-R dimmers do not have any radio frequency capability. If one of the companions were replaced by an RF capable device, such as a Caseta Wireless PD-6WCL, the other devices would need to be replaced, as well.

Can I use these switches on a 20 amp circuit?

These can only be the first and last on such a circuit, and the middle two switches will only turn everything off (not on).

Very nice quality. Used for front foyer chandelier controlled by first level switch and upstairs also on a three way switch. Works great and love the dimmer function. You can now turn on downstairs in the dark and off at the top without funky switch settings.

It is working well with the Halo 7.5" ceiling lights we put in our den. They are easy to install and have good installation directions. I would have rated them a five, but the operation instructions are somewhat vague about all the functions. Otherwise, these are a great system with the lights they say they work with. Be sure to check the website for compatibility before buying!

Lutron Maestro Dimmer Kit
What a great dimmer switch kit! Took all of 30 minutes to install both switches. Super easy for me as I already had a dual (two location) switch set-up and all I had to do is swap the old switches to the new dimmers. All wire connections on the old switches had the same set up / layout as these new ones. I didn’t even need the instructions. They are however provided and are fairly good and easy to understand. The instructions are printed on a large sheet that’s folded many times to fit the packaging. Much clearer instructions could be found on the HomeDepot website in the product Overview section. Took me a minute to figure out how to remove the face-plate off the switch. All you have to do is pull it off from the top or bottom with your nails. It’s much harder to pull it off from the sides and may break the tiny holding clamps. The clip-on face-plate is a nice touch as it hides the mounting screws and provides a very clean and sleek look. The features and operation are well designed. Single press / tap anywhere on the switch (button) to turn ON and the lights go on full brightness. Press the button again to turn OFF and the lights will dim and shut off. The button reacts well regardless of where it’s pressed. The rocker switch on the side works well too. Press up to increase the light level and down to dim the lights. The Master switch has an LED light-strip on the left side to indicate the light level and switch operation. It consists of 7 pin-holes that are backlit by green LEDs. When the main lights are OFF, the entire light-strip is dimly backlit. When the lights are ON, only one of the light-strip LEDs is light corresponding to the main light level / setting. Additional features: You can program the master switch to only turn on to a certain light level instead of full brightness (see instructions). Double tap the switch to bring the light level from dimmed to full brightness. The switches also remember the light level that was on when the lights were turned off. When turned back on it will resume that light level. There is also a pullout switch on the bottom of the main on/off button called FASS. It stands for Front Accessible Service Switch. If you need to replace a light bulb or the light fixture itself, there’s no need to go to the main breaker box to shut off the switch. Simply pull out the FASS tab to completely disable the switch and electricity flow. Great job LUTRON! Small down sides: No instructions on how to remove the face plate from the switch. I figured it out, but others may not and could break it while trying to detach. Also, would have been nice if it came packaged in a box instead of a clam-shell. Would be easier to open, store spare parts inside and some of the printed material (warranty info, part number, etc.) could be printed on the box for future reference. Nonetheless, a great 5-star product!

Works great , great control of led lighting from two locations. Very smooth and quiet operation of any dimming with no noise or flicker . Go online to read the wiring diagrams BEFORE you arrive at the job site I found was best for me. Make sure you understand to pull out the mini circuit breaker tab on the master dimmer BEFORE you wire. Unless you plan on turning off the breaker.

This is my second set. Though they changed the functioning between my first set and this one and I prefer the old way it worked, I still recommend it. What changed? The "delay" off, use to delay for an amount of time relative to how long you held the button when the lights were on and illustrated by the LEDs climbing from bottom to top. Now, no matter how long you hold the button, the delay is 30 seconds regardless, only the second LED blinks, although the default delay time can be reprogrammed to a different default off delay.
