Takes unlimited customization to the next level at an affordable price. If you factor in the cost of conduit, 3 and 4 way switches, labor. This comes out to less than 1/10th the cost. The finished product is flawless. So many levels of smart house customization can be achieved. 10 years ago if you had a single family smart home you would have to pay 30k+ for this tech. If it's electronic you can figure a way to control it from any where in the world.
So far much better then the wemo switches I have. Works well with Google assistant and responds much faster. Less then 1 second which is crazy. I also like that the 'scenes' you create within the app show up in Google home unlike many programs. Great solution for areas where your lights are wired in the middle of a circuit and there is no neutral present. Another great thing is that the switch itself isn't huge on the back. I struggled to get my wemo switch into my houses old 1950s Conduit, but these fit easily. App is simple and works well. Overall great product.
Can I set a timer on switches not an on-off timer but on off timer 20 minutes after it's manually turned on it turns off. So that when the kids leave the hall lights on they turn off. ...... If not the seems like an easy thing to add to the app no ?
I just installed the dimmer/switch and the bridge and they all work well along with the app. It works with Alexa very well with little issue. One problem I have with the app is that I xan find no way to turn off the light in a given schedule. Right now, I can turn on the lights to 30% at 5.30am, Monday to Friday with no problem. But there is no way to turn it off in the schedule. You have to do that manually. Still playing with my setup, but the app is very good.
New upgrade is horrible. Completely messes with the way it works with Alexa.. have to say the name of room first. Doesn't allow you to reorder lights, for some reason asks multiple questions about purpose of light and then forces you to rename if another light has same purpose. Have thousands of dollars of smart home technology in my house, used to love this, now I want to switch.
I really wish that the app included an easy way to set a gradual sunrise fade in. I have one set up using a number of manually set events and light percentages, but it is cumbersome and a pain if I want to wake up at a different time than usual. It would be very useful to set a start time and duration for a climb to full brightness that could be toggled on and off as easily as an alarm. Edit: Fade in times of 15 and 30 minutes would probably work. Also, I appreciate Lutron being really good about responding to reviews. Hopefully we see corresponding updates to the app.
