Caséta by Lutron gets mentioned a lot on MPU and I wholeheartedly agree it provides a much better HomeKit light control experience since it is controllable at the switch or via HomeKit - and, critically, everything stays in sync.
Of course, any in-wall switch solution requires some electrical work which requires an electrician or some DIY spirit and possible willingness to violate local ordinances…oh and, yes, it is more expensive. But the setup and daily use is so nice, reliable, responsive and simple.
(I’ve been meaning to write up my HomeKit setup like a desk setup post! Someday.)
At any rate, exciting new announcements CES announcements today, including Caséta. (And unlike some companies, in the past Lutron’s announcements actually make it to the product line - and even fairly soon after CES. Last year’s new product was fan control switches. I installed one and it is awesome. I want to do the other fans soon.)
The following is a screencap of the email Lutron just sent. Personally excited about the motion sensor. Right now I have a cheap HomeKit motion sensor that works pretty well considering it was $20 but I bet the reliability of the Caseta motion sensor will be .
If I had a bigger place I’d probably be excited about the repeater (although the Caséta lamp switch can serve as a repeater already, with limits.)
