For the few people like me that do not yet have the hub. The Lutron Caseta Smart Start Kit is currently $99.95 but was showing 30% off for me so I jumped on that deal instead.

This kit includes (1) Smart Bridge (1) Caseta In-Wall Dimmer (1) Pico Remote Control and (1) Pico Wall plate Bracket.

The Lutron Caseta Smart Start Kit is normally $100 but was 30% off for me so I jumped on that deal instead. I already had a few dimmers at home that my wife found for cheap at some liquidation stores.

This kit includes (1) Smart Bridge (1) Caseta In-Wall Dimmer (1) Pico Remote Control and (1) Pico Wall plate Bracket.

Dumb question, but I want to use a smart dimmer for our living room lights which currently have two way switches. Can I replace one of the switches with this?

I have 40+ of these in my house and they are rock solid but they aren't perfect.
- for the ones that control a small load (1 or 2 led can lights) I have a problem where the lights flash when they first are turned on, then operate normally. I tried using the LUT-MLC capacitor to fix this as many have suggested online, and that works but there now is a constant buzzing from that switch from the MLC device. Adjusting the lower and upper trims also didn't help.
- as others have mentioned they do not remember their dimming setting
- there is a 75 device limit for the hub (Lutron's way of artificially limiting the system to upsell to their more expensive lines), there are ways to get around this by using two pro hubs and another home automation system such as homeseer over the top but it's a pain. Also both dimmers and pico switches are counted so if you have a big house you might want to look into this more.

I've also used Wemo, Kasa, etc, and even though there are the issues above, I still think Lutron is the most reliable in the market.

By the way if anyone has other ideas for the flashing issue I'd love to hear about it.

Yes you can replace one switch with the caseta dimmer, then you can add caseta picos anywhere else in the room. Picos act like remote controls for the main dimmer so you can put them anywhere - on a table, stick them to the wall, or replace the other switches with them

I installed two in my house and they worked like charm! I put the hub on the first floor and have one switch on the same floor and another one on the second floor. No problem on the connectivity at all. It has been very reliable.

What really makes this product worth the price tag is that it does not need a neutral wire and is very easy to install.

The Lutron Caseta has the best looking and functioning battery-powered wireless button, by far. Even years after its release. However, their closed system requiring dedicated bridge for Smart Home integration is a deal breaker. Not only it is VERY expensive, it is another piece that could break.

Here is a question on an issue I encountered this weekend. I have Lutron caseta dimmer with the hub. Before, I used to be able to activate the lights from anywhere I was at. This weekend I was at a family members house and it was getting late so I tried to activate the lights but it does not connect to the hub. Once I got home, it connected fine. Not sure why this happened now because it previously worked fine.

do you have a suggestion for different brand that has an open system?

Check settings you have to enable control from outside of home

Any chance your Internet connection was down, even temporarily? I had that happen to me and I was puzzled until I got home and rebooted my router. Now, if you're using something like HomeKit instead of the Lutron app to control your devices, then you also to make sure your HomeKit hub device (iPad, Apple TV, or HomePod) is functioning. That could be an outage source as well.

Coupon details says "Save 15% on your Smart Home purchase"

I'm not sure what else the coupon works on, but it does work on the Lutron smart plug that I wanted to order, so thank you Smilie
I just bought a bunch of these switches through Amazon and installed them over the last few weeks...unfortunately (as far as price goes). They're great. I did however use this coupon clipping for an iDevices Smart Outlet for our gazebo lights!

If you are just looking for a dimmer switch that can be controlled via Alexa, you can get a Zigbee switch which can communicate directly with newer Echo. If you don't want to invest in a Hub but want to control via Google Home or Alexa, a Wi-Fi based switch like WeMo is fine too.

I went with SmartThings so I can choose Z-wave switch which are more common. Zooz make low cost switch with good reviews.

And if you don't care about smart switch but just wanted to turn a regular switch into a 3-way, check out Skylink.

I had same issue then tried different bulbs Then it was fine.

Not sure if this would work but can give it a try
