If you guys have been here for a while, you know how much we love our Caséta by Lutron. We started using their products in our home three years ago and now frequently incorporate them into our client projects.
Our favorite thing about this brand is that you don’t have to be an electrician or any sort of expert to be able to install them, they’re perfect for any homeowner. And that truly is because they believe that every homeowner should have peace of mind. Which is exactly what it has given us over these last few years.
Whether we’re on vacation, and we want to make it look like someone is home, or simply for convenience when the boys forget to shut off all of the lights and we’re already in bed, we can turn them all off with a click of a button, or when entertaining and we want to set the mood…or even during the holidays and we want to put our Christmas lights all on timers….it’s been a game-changer in our home on many levels.
With Caséta smart dimmers and switches, you don’t need to buy smart bulbs to enjoy smart lighting. And since each dimmer switch can control multiple bulbs, you get a lot more control with a lot less investment.
Here are some of the many benefits as to why we recommend investing in Caséta by Lutron.
We love these lights because we’re able to set the lights on a schedule. We can have them all turn on at the same time in the morning as a type of alarm and help get the boys up, and have them go off at the same time every night. Every night our little dudes get some screen time in their rooms before bed and prior to Caséta, we’d have to go in their rooms and tell them it was time for bed and that would always lead to a meltdown. Now, we set a timer for bedtime and when the lights go off, they know the drill. Same for their morning routine, they know they can’t come out of their rooms until the lights turn on.
They also have a feature called the Sunset Tracker which controls the lights without fail — even when the season changes, and you gain or lose an hour.
I can’t get over the clean and sleek look of the Caséta. No screw holes and a nice and clean cover plate. This is such a simple feature but if I’m being honest, one of the biggest reasons I tell our clients to go this route.
With Caséta lights you’re able to control one or multiple lights at the same time by creating a scene — so you can transform a room from “Sport Court Fun” brightness to “Bed Time” mood in no time. And a super nice feature is being able to control all the lights from my phone from any place.
We love this because as I mentioned before, we can set the tone of the night if we’re entertaining friends or if we’re having a movie night.
Full Smart Home
The Caséta lights work with almost all smart home devices. You can have Alexa control the lights, or use it with your Ring doorbell for your lights to turn on in your entryway and patio when someone rings your doorbell. Even your smartwatch can be paired with Caséta lights.
Easy to Install & Affordable
And lastly, it’s super simple to install and affordable. Their starter kit is less than $150 and you can find them online or at any big-box retailer. They have many articles on their site that walk you through how to install. Even I installed a few of ours with no help from Jamie.
We love the ease, reliability, and personalization that comes with Caséta lighting. We knew when building our sport court that we wanted to have Caséta lighting in there as well to make it easy on everyone, and I am so happy we went with them yet again. It’s already made everything more convenient and fun for the entire family! The boys love dimming those lights…
