    Caseta Non Dimmer Options

    I am interested in adding a non dimmer switch to control two single bulb fixtures (one switch controls both). Both will be equipped with ~9w LED. I do NOT have neutral available in the switch junction box. I understand that I will need PD-5WS-DV along with LUT-MLC, and since there is no neutral in the switch junction box LUT-MLC will need to be installed in the load junction box - my question is do I need LUT-MLC for each load on the circuit or just one? I am almost certain its just one and really anywhere on the circuit.

    Alternatively I guess I could just put in a dimmer and set the min to be like 99% - this would actually be cheaper too since the dimmer is cheaper than the plain switch...... hmmm........

    In a related question, does anyone know how the dimmer does it magic without neutral or add on capacitor but the plain switch's cant?

    The LUT-MLC gets connected in parallel with the lights. Usually in the switch box but because it's a parallel connection it could be at the light.

    I believe the minimum dimming level can only be raised to 40%.

    That sucks the minimum can only be 40%, though that would still give me what I need for two the two outside lights I want to control.
