Perfect with Lutron's Smart Bridge
By D. Matheny
I've been playing around with the Lutron Caseta dimmers, together with their Smart Bridge.
The combination works great - and it's even better when combined with the Logitech Home Control remote.
Having said that, I don't really want dimmers on every light; and, a standard switch makes more sense in a lot of cases. That's where this switch comes in!
Here are the things we like about it:
1) It works perfectly with the Lutron Smart Bridge - so it can be run on a schedule, as well as turned on or off remotely.
2) It's intuitive to use.
3) These switches look great.
4) It works well with low-power LEDs - and ships with the Lutron MLC just in case you have issues. The MLC works to keep LEDs from flickering with these switches; but, I've found it isn't really necessary. Interestingly enough, they do help with the Caseta dimmers (which don't ship with the MLC...)
5) When combined with the Smart Bridge, it can also be controlled using the Logitech Home Control remotes.
The biggest downside to these is availability (at least for now). For some reason, the dimmers are far more available; and, as a result, they tend to be less expensive - which is seriously irritating.
Anyway, if you're looking for standard switches to add to a home automation setup with the Lutron Smart Bridge, this is the product you're looking for - and we're very happy with them.

Automation at a good price!!!
By DARC SAINT PAUL
This switch is great, and it work great with the Wink hub and app. Unlike the Lutron dimmers, this switch MAY need a neutral wire. I only had one load that required I use the supplied jumper wire to neutral. If the wire is required, the switch will blink red intermittently to let you know to check the wiring.

Very good home automation light switches for use with Wink
Have been purchasing Lutron switches to replace old mechanical switches and to pair them with the Wink Automation. Previously, I had purchased PD-5WS-DV-WH version which were a little more expensive, but were branded Caseta. After reading a post about the PD-5S-DV-WH version also being compatible with Wink, I tried these which were a little less expensive. After installation, they worked great with Wink and appear to be just as reliable as the PD-5WS-DV-WH version. Very pleased with the purchase and the automation has been working fine with Wink. If you want to automate your home lighting and want a nice modern switch look, Lutron light switches are a great way to do it. Switch does not require any neutral and works will with CFLs and LEDs as I didn't have any loading issues.
