Hi all, glad I found this forum, new member.
Trying to put together a HomeKit system and therefore also adding Caseta wireless into the mix. I have a new smart bridge pack (the 1 with the 1 in wall dimmer plus remote plus bridge) on the way and also have ordered some of the in wall switches (the on/off, not dimmable ones).
I have some initial questions:
1) For the kitchen I have BR30s in cans, LED's but not dimmable, I'm thinking of retro'ing those with new dimmable BR30's and using the in wall dimmer for that setup. Its a pin to have to replace 10 x BR30s just to gain dimmer but think that the benefit of the dimming, when used for scenes etc will be more beneficial longer term. I have read that even those bulbs that are supported by Lutron are sometimes humming so my question is, are/is there a brand of BR30s that people are finding trouble free with these Caseta dimmers ?
2) For the in-wall switch (the one you can use for on/off, fans etc) being used in a 3 way environment (2 switches controlling 1 set of lights) do I have to use the Caseta in wall switch and a Pico remote for the 2nd switch or can I mix it with 1 x Caseta and 1 x Mechanical ? What is the best way to solve this type of install in your opinion ?
3) Can I use any pico remote with the On/Off Caseta in Wall Switch (even those with the 3 or 4 buttons that have dim functionality, even though I would not be using the dim piece) ?
4) Anyone using it this solution with the Nest Integration ? If so how is that working ?
Sure I will have more questions as I move forward but really appreciate any feedback you can offer.
