    The Smart Bridge Pro will be shipping in early summer and will allow you to control Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena shades using a new Lutron app. It will also integrate with select security and A/V systems. We're working with these alliances now on drivers and will have more details on supported products and functionality as we get closer to launch.

    The Smart Bridge Pro will be available through electrical, A/V and security installers as well as window treatment dealers.

    You can buy Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena shades today - they are ready to work with the Smart Bridge Pro when it's available

    Unhappy

    Thanks for the information. So no general retail availability and no confirmation of local access through LIP.

    Any launch date for PD-5S-DV Caseta In-Wall Switch?

    The PD-5S-DV is an Energy TriPak Device and not supported in the Caseta Wireless system.

    Currently a switch is being worked on for the Caseta Wireless System and looking to be released later this summer. Look for more details coming later.

    Well that's confusing since the caseta dimmer also carries the PD product prefix.

    The Sivoia QS wireless devices will be compatible with the Smart Bridge with the exception of the Venetian blinds and the Horizontal sheer blinds. The wired Sivoia QS wired device will not be compatible with the Smart Bridge.

    For the integration with Alarm.com we would recommend contacting Alarm.com as they will be able to let you know what needs to occur on their side for this integration. The Smart Bridge will not need any special configuration for this integration.

    Will the smart bridge be compatible with any of the dimmers and keypads that are supported by RadioRa2?

    The Smart Bridge Pro will be compatible with Caseta Wireless dimmers, Pico remote controls, and Serena, Sivoia QS Triathlon, and Sivoia QS Wireless shades (with the exception of Venetian blinds and Horizontal Sheer blinds). RadioRA 2 dimmers and keypads will not be supported by the Smart Bridge Pro.

    Currently have quite a few Z-Wave devices. But since transitioning to LED lights, the Z-Wave dimmers seem to be a bit flakey on the dimming control. I have purchased a couple of Caseta dimmers (which are supposed to be compatible with LED/CFL) to test and I am considering transitioning to Lutron for lighting control. i Have a few of questions regarding the Smart Bridge Pro device that hopefully someone can answer.


    1) Will the Smart Bridge be compatible with the existing line of Meastro Wireless products. See a lot of talk about RA2 but not sure where the Meastro product line falls in the mix. The Caseta line is quite sparse at the moment.


    In the event of Server Problems (Manufacturer Cloud) or Internet outage most of these controllers are useless. This has been frustration in the past with other manufacturers like Nexia/Schlage.


    2) Will the Smart Bridge work in local mode (can it be accessed directly on the local network without the cloud)? I know this question was asked in the first message, but I did not see the answer to this question.


    3) Will automation events still fire during outage?


    TIA
