    Caseta 3 Way Switch POWER FROM LIGHT FIXTURE

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and have a question that perhaps can be answered here or a suggestion where to redirect would be helpful.

    I have 2, 3 way switches I'd like to install. One Switch is a typical 3 way rocker, the other is a Caseta Switch.
    The issue is I cannot seem to find a wiring diagram that installs this switch with a power source from the ceiling light fixture.
    Hook up would be from light Fixture to typical 3 way rocker switch, then to the Casteta 3Way switch.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    tks

    Unless you are using a Switch (non dimmer) or the new Diva Dimmer you will need to use a Pico remote as the second switch. Lutron has some good videos on Youtube on how to do this.

    Good morning Silverton, yes I am using a Caseta wireless switch model PD-5ANS. I have checked Lutrons website but they do not seem to have a wiring
    Schematic where the power source is from the ceiling light box, then to the switch box?

    This is a stairway installation where there is existing 14/3 wiring to the other box.

    The new Diva and Clara switches also wire the same way.

    You have two choices in this case. Either you buy a dimmer style Caseta switch with no neutral and install a dimmable bulb or you pull a 3-wire from the light fixture down to the switch to replace the 2-wire.
