    Wall switches for ELV and MLV low voltage

    Hi, New to home automation, just ordered a Pro2 bridge, and have my first outlet units. I would like to install Caseta wall switches, and in a couple instances, the switches may control a combination of ELV low voltage lights and a couple MLV lights. Is there a Caseta wall switch (pro version maybe?) that will be able to work with that combination automatically? I think I may have seen something on Lutron site for a pro version, but not sure. Thanks very much for your help as I begin my home automation journey!

    I am attaching photos of the two transformers I found. ELV are in wall, the MLV are attached to each light unit.

    If you wish to turn them on and off, then I would use the PD-6ANS-xx.

    Under no circumstances are these to be dimmed together on the same switch leg. Very bad things can happen as MLV and ELV do not dim using the same protocol/dimming curve.

    Thanks SanDiegoRep for the reply. So, on/off would be fine with the 6ANS.

    Yes,as long as there is a neutral in your box. Otherwise, use the PD-5WS-DV-WH which does not require a neutral.
