    Irritating

The trouble is when pairing one of these new switches to the Caseta Smart Bridge, the "Associated Service Type" (for which I was not prompted when adding new) defaulted to "None". And, so, when asking Siri to turn on/off lights associated with a zone that included them, it failed. Zach had me navigate from the Lutron app's Home page to "Lights&Shades More>". Then, on there, tap "Edit" in the top right corner. Now, select the, for example, light fixture associated with the switch that's misbehaving with Siri. Remember, you must have tapped Edit first, else it'll only prompt you to turn on/off the light. While in edit mode and selected the light, you'll get to another page that shows the name, Device Icon, and "Associated Service Type". Tap on "Associated Service Type". That'll take you to a page that gives you three options: Lightbulb, Fan, None. By default, the Lutron app defaulted the type to "None". With that setting, Siri won't recognize this as a light. Changing the type to "Lightbulb", backing up a menu level, and taping on "Save" fixed the problem for me. Hooray! Thanks Zach!
    It appears the 3.3 update broke some things. I deleted and re-added my front hall light to fix a pico pairing issue. Now the device type is listed as None and it won't let me change it and Siri won't see it either probably as a result of the None device type issue. The Lurton app controls the app with no issue.

    There is a free HomeKit based app called Elgato Eve. Can you download this app and see if you are able to control the switches, via Siri, using this app?

    I do have that app and both the Caseta app and Eve had the same problem. However woke up the next day and checked it and Device Type changed autonomously to Lightbulb and Siri works fine for both apps. I have no idea why as I made no changes
