Solid deal. FYI, this comes with the hub and 1 switch vs. the other starter pack that's occasionally on sale for $120 that comes with teh hub and 2 switches.

I'm showing $114.90 on the two switch starter kit actually lower than amazon, not bad if you need a hub. I have a hub wish the additional single switches would go on sale.

It's also different in that it's the lamp dimmer which is a plug in with a single pico remote - it is not an in wall like the other kit. It's a steal for just the hub.

Good call, I didn't even notice that. I guess it depends on what you want, but the lamp dimmers and switches are worth about the same, and if you're just getting started building this out (reasonably assumption if you're buying a hub), the vast majority of people will need both.

That is an excellent price. If you need switches and lamp dimmers, I'd get that in a heartbeat. $120 is the "once every few months" hot deal price on that.

I got all my switches and dimmers over time from a couple of eBay sellers. Some had slightly damaged packaging, but otherwise brand new, and I paid right around $40-$42 each. Not terrible...

Wish they would discount the Caseta without hub for current customers. They never go on sale.

hi guys I am not very handy, but always wanted to get dimmable switch. so just shut off main power, make sure there is no electricity then change out the switch right? easy to change out the switch?

any idea how much would it cost to have a handyman do like 3 switches.

It's very easy. When in doubt, call! Lutron was VERY helpful to me when I was having difficulty installing a 4-way dimmer. Walked me right through it. Plugs and switches are simple, relatively. You can do it!! Get a headlamp to wear, looks goofy but are priceless when doing outlets and switches!

I replaced all my light switches to these Lutron switches it's very easy to do. Yes for safety I ALWAYS shut off the main power
when replacing any light switches, outlets etc anything electrical.

Agreed. It wouldn't be a ton, but you'd probably pay a handyman as much to show up as to actually do the work. I'm no good at this stuff, and I could redo 3 switches in half an hour.

Another tip for the clueless like myself - always take a picture or 2 of your wiring to refer to before you take the existing switch apart and capture what wires go where and to what color screws.

It's overkill to shut off the main power if you can identify which individual breaker to shut off. Invest in a half-decent multimeter with non-contact voltage detection so that if in doubt you can double-check it's not hot. (You just hold it up to a wire and press a button and if there's voltage present, it'll light up red and/or make a buzzing sound.)

The biggest differences with the Caseta switches from what you might already have installed are that instead of screw terminals that you attach wires to, there are three existing short wires coming off of the Caseta dimmer switch, so you'll need to connect them to the ones in the wall with wire nuts. There is no neutral connection (usually a white wire) on the switch, so you'll need to just tie any neutral you might have in with the others in the box. You'll connect the ground (green or bare copper), and then the other two (usually black wires) go to line and load. As someone mentioned above, the only real issue is with 3 (or n) way switches, when you have multiple switches that control the same fixture. Essentially what you'll do is install the dimmer on the "main" switch location, and then just tie the wires together at the other switches so they're always on. Then, you can get a bracket to mount one of the wireless Pico remotes in their locations so that it looks like a wall switch, although it's not tied into the actual wires at all.

In general, they're quick and easy to install, and rock solid. +1 for Caseta.
