    Seeking 3-way design assistance - newbie question

    I'm looking to transition off my SmartHome/Insteon system to something more modern and reliable.

    I find navigating the Lutron site for info a bit difficult, so I'm posting here in the hope some with working knowledge of this arrangement will reply.

    My first design goal is to automate an existing 3-way setup in a hallway. Current installation is a pair of non-RF Maestro switches.
    I want to be able to have the lights come based on (1) manual operation, (2) time of day, and (3) some form of remote, preferably like a car garage-open type remote.

    If I understand this Lutron document (http://www.casetawireless.com/Docume...ced%20Inst.pdf) correctly,
    all I should need are:
    (1) In-wall switch (PD-5WS-DV) for the physical connection
    (2) the Smart Bridge Pro plus Lutron App for the scheduling
    (3) A Pico remote control (plus the car visor clip)

    Is this correct or am I missing something?

    Thanks very much.

    Yes, this looks correct. The Lutron site is pretty awkward until you get the hang of it.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    As I thought about my current setup, I realized I have an in-line relay module to control an exterior light from a switch that does not have access to the wire controlling the light.
    Is there a similar component for the SBP?
    I can't find one and I'm wondering if I need to go to the RadioRA system to get this functionality.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing in the Caseta line that would be able to do this.

    You would need to use the Radio Ra2 line of products, with either a Pico remote, or a keypad controlling an RF relay module.
