    Question Which Caseta Products for Switched Outlet

    I'm new to this, so hopefully there is simple solution. I have a switched half-hot outlet with 2 bedside lamps attached. Which Caseta products should I use to control these lamps from the switch, iPhone and Alexa?

    I'd use the PD-3PCL. The NEC does not allow dimming of general use receptacles. You could use a 6ANS at the switch but I don't think that meets code either and is dangerous because you can have a plug in load with more than 6 amps.

    So 'NEC does not allow dimming of general use receptacles'....means the switch at the wall should not be changed....or do I need to install a Pico In-Wall remote in place of the existing switch to connect with the PD3PCL. You know what I'm thinking.... if someone flips the existing switch it will mess up the PD3PCL function.

    You could make the receptacle hot all the time and use a pico with the PD-3PCL. There is a separate mounting kit to mount the pico to a wallbox.

    The issue is that most dimmers are rated at 600 watts, a few for 1000w. None are rated for motors. Some plug-in devices, like vacuums, are rated at 1,440 amps. Plus there are typically multiple outlets on the switch.
