Can this be used with any other non-dimmer 3-way switch or 4-way switch)?

Answer

For 3-way applications, the MACL-153M can be used with a standard 3-way mechanical on/off switch. For 4-way applications, the companion MA-R dimmers must be used. You can find out more about this dimmer and the wiring options by viewing the spec sheet here: MACL-153M SPEC (369613) (lutron.com).

The full width of the dimmer is 2-1/4", however, if you are using the dimmer with an LED or CFL load under 150W (not incandescent or halogen), you can break off the side fins on one side (the side next to the other device you are installing) and the dimmer will be 1-15/16" wide. If you cannot fit the two devices side by side on this configuration and IF you are dimming an incandescent or halogen light source 300w or below and your exhaust fan is rated at 2.5A or below, you may want to consider the Lutron MA-L3S25 which combines a Maestro dimmer and a switch in a stacked configuration that only takes up one gang.

Answer

If the MACL-153M is programed to turn on at 'Last Level', the light should return to the last level when turned on from the standard toggle switch as well. If the MACL-153M is set to a 'Locked Preset' light level, the Maestro and toggle would also turn them on to the specified preset light level. For advanced programming of the MACL-153M, please visit https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/048459.pdf

Just what I needed for my new FEIT Electric LED GU5.3 bi-pin 50Watt Dimmable Daylight LED Flood Lights to work properly! The only down side is instead of a slow up to full bright it’s much quicker than the older model of Lutron Dimmer switch that could only control halogen or incandescent bulbs but not LED, so for that reason I was forced to upgrade to this model just to be able to properly control the LED Light Bulbs.

I love these switches and have used them on numerous projects but you have to make sure your fixtures and lighting match the switches you are installing. If not the result will be flickering lights. do your research online before you purchase your products.

"​Hi Lutronman, ​Thank you so much for your great review! We are happy to hear how much you are enjoying your Maestro dimmer and switch. Have a great day! "
Background: I had been looking for a set of dimmers that I could use in my formal dinning room an...
Background: I had been looking for a set of dimmers that I could use in my formal dinning room and fireplace room that did not require a natural to function. I was looking for something that had a little more sophistication to it in the hopes of remaining consistent with theme of the two rooms. Function: My wife (for some reason) was distinctly opposed to the idea of a paddle style dimmer. This dimmer seemed to do the trick and was a happy middle ground for everyone ("happy wife, happy life", right?). This dimmer is not a paddle style dimmer, rather the large middle button functions as an instant on/instant off function where you can tap it once to turn the light fixture on and tap it again to turn it off. The small vertical button on the right side allows you to a) adjust the various minimum/maximum light levels for your specific light fixture to prevent flickering (LED, incandescent, etc.) and b) to gradually choose a the satisfactory level of light for your mood/setting. My phone made the status indicator lights on the dimmer pop way more then they actually do. In reality, the lights are no brighter then a GFIC outlet status light (barely noticeable). Installation: The installation of went smoothly. As mentioned above, this dimmer does not require a neutral so it is good to go for most in-home applications where you may not have a neutral wire running through your home. If your wiring is clearly labeled and/or if you have an understanding of the wiring in your house then it should only take 15-20 minutes to install. Issues: This is a three pole rated dimmer but I had a couple problems with getting it to work with my recessed LED light fixture and remaining compatible with a traditional switch on the other pole. I won't get too into it but, essentially, because the dimmer is designed with the little glowing bar on the left hand side, it might not work with your LED light fixture. LED lights are SO energy efficient that even when the dimmer is "off" it still has enough power running through it to make your LED light pulsate in the "off" setting. Because of this, I had to move this dimmer from my fire room to my dining room where it would be controlling a traditional incandescent chandelier. It works perfectly in that room. Last but not least, if installing this in a three pole environment, I would recommend getting the matching dimmer (can be purchased as a set) to update both switches that will be feeding the light fixture. The reason for this is because, when you flip the traditional light switch that is in the other room to "off", it will shut down the power running to this dimmer thereby disabling it entirely. In that arrangement the dimmer will not respond at all to your touch until you flip back on the traditional light switch. Now, this could probably be resolved by hooking up a jumper wire (included in the package) or you could just go for it and change both switches in one sweep but I’m no rocket scientist/electrician. Overall: Overall, I am very satisfied with the dimmer once I moved it to the appropriate lighting fixture/spot. It takes only a short time to install and it met my expectations. You can get a significant amount of functionality from your lights this simple $29 upgrade.
