Thread: Lutron in-wall dimmer controlling Philips Hue

    Lutron in-wall dimmer controlling Philips Hue

    I live in an 1800s Cape and have a host of lighting issues I'm attempting to address. In my living room, I have 3 sconces; one sconce is hardwired to a switch and the other two require on/off switches on the sconce itself to control. My idea has been to consolidate all 3 sconces onto a single switch using a combination of smart bulbs and a smart switch. The configuration would be as follows: use Lutron in-wall switch to control standard LEDs in the sconce that's wired to the switch. For the other two sconces, use Philips Hue bulbs connected to the Lutron switch remotely. I understand best practices around not using smart bulbs with a smart switch that's hardwired, so this configuration would follow best practices.However, I thought the Lutron switch would also control smart bulbs but I've been unable to do so. Any suggestions as to how to achieve my goal?

    No way to do this using lutron and hue alone - they won't talk to each other directly. You need a hue/caseta compatible automation hub like smartthings, hubitat or home assistant as the link to tie both systems together via an automation rule ala "turn on/off both hue bulbs when caseta switch is tuned on/off"

    Why not leave all 3 switches on and use the Hue app to control them? Otherwise (as Hydro noted) you are going to need a 3rd party device to interface the two.
