Lutron's Smart Bridge and related app work great, but the price is much too high for basic automated dimmer capabilities. If you plan to add other connected devices, its value will improve considerably.
The Lutron Smart Bridge offers DIY connected home builders the tools to command lights, shades, and thermostats via a mobile app.
As the first retail-ready HomeKit product, Lutron's kit is just the beginning of Siri-integrated smart home control, but it works so well that I can easily recommend it today for any iOS users interested in plug-in lighting and dimmer products.
The $230 Lutron kit, complete with Smart Bridge hub, two plug-in dimmer modules and two remote controls works like a charm.
Part of the Caseta Wireless system, the $149 Lutron Smart Bridge lets DIY smart home builders control lights, window shades, and Wi-Fi thermostats all through Android and iOS mobile apps.
