    Fan Motor and Light Control

    Hi,I currently have two switches in a single gang box (Leviton 5634) and see there is a Lutron Maestro MACL-LFQ type dimmable/speed control switch. Is there anything available in a Caseta that is similar or any other smart switch? Thanks.

    No. Lutron has said for a long time this is an engineering limitation- adding radios to a dual device wouldn’t fit. It seems like they would have figured it out with all the advancements in silicon but apparently not.

    I'm sure "engineering limitation" is the official Lutron response. I would like to point out the hybrid keypad which has a keypad, dimmer and radio. Admittedly the fan controls are typically much bigger than other devices. Most manufacturers have some kind of dual device with a radio. I don't know if any have a fan/light control with a radio.

    Pull-chain fans will soon be obsolete. I'd rather see Lutron improve the communication with other systems (like Hunter or even Zigby/Z-wave).
