Lutron Caséta is upping the maximum device limit

I just got an email from them, and in a couple weeks they will be updating the limit from 50 to 75. I’m not to the limit yet, but was figuring out which switches I didn’t really need, or which lamps I could use WeMo to keep it under the limit, but with this, I should be able to expand as much as needed (and as my wallet allows).

Update allows for 25 more devices

Caséta by Lutron gives you more control than ever before – including dimmers, switches, Pico smart remotes, Serena automated shades, and (new) fan controls. It’s no surprise, then, that Lutron customers are adding more and more devices to get the most out of their systems.

After extensive testing to ensure that Lutron’s performance standards are maintained, Caséta by Lutron is expanding the device limit from 50 to 75 devices. This upgrade will go into effect on July 8th. All you need to do is update your Lutron app after July 8th. If you have your app set to update automatically, you don’t need to do anything.

This upgrade will provide flexibility to build out your smart home the way you want, while ensuring the same reliability and high-quality performance you’ve come to expect from Caséta by Lutron.

They could invest some cash in bringing their products to Europe :rofl:

Lutron RA2 Select was launched in Europe earlier this year. Unfortunately, they don’t have plans to bring Caseta to Europe, but RA2 Select uses the same software app and has the same integrations (Apple HomeKit, Google Home, & Amazon Alexa) as Caseta.

Not saying they shouldn’t, but with European electrical standards and physical junction boxes different than US/Canada, designing a product line for the European market is a lot more than just importing the same products and making them available.

If you are in the greater London area, I can refer you to several different Lutron systems integrators if you need assistance (they are friends of mine).

Quick tip: Caseta will still have the range/distance limitations even with the higher device limit, but a relatively unknown feature is that you can use one Caseta plug-in lamp module as a ClearConnect (Lutron wireless protocol) repeater to extend the range beyond the reach of just the primary hub/bridge.

Of course, if you have large layout, multi-floor, or challenging physical environment, you might still need to consider RA2 Select or RA2 because (amongst other things) they support up to four repeaters for larger physical installations.
