Caseta Hub


#1

How can I tell if I have the pro or standard hub?

If I get the "pro" version, then all the lights can execute locally correct? If I have standard hub and have to replace it, is this "pro"? https://www.amazon.com/Lutron-Wireless-pedestals-P-BDG-PKG2W-Assistant/dp/B00XPW6824#

No, that is the standard bridge. You will want this one:

Make sure you get the smartbridge pro v2, I don't believe Lutron is allowing activation of the v1 anymore.


#3

Amazon link? I love my prime shipping :slight_smile:


#4

$55 and 7 available.

I believe, those are the non-Homekit versions, which won't matter for Hubitat.


#5

Only available from 3rd party sellers at absurd pricing. The link I posted is best pricing I've seen and I believe their shipping is very reasonable.


#6

I believe I read that Lutron isn't allowing new registrations of this model. However I've read that Lutron may replace it with a v2 under "warranty"


#7

I thought it was that they weren't allowing upgrades and thus not registering old because of the firmware.


#8

@chad.mccune This is the Kit that I have but I only paid $147 on sale...


#9

Fair enough, I can wait a few days for the shipping anyway, I won't be instantly transported into Hubitat land :slight_smile:


#10

You may be correct, I don't have 1st hand experience because I've had my v1 registered for over a year.


#11

https://www.energyavenue.com/Lutron/L-BDGPRO2-WH has it for $89 bucks without the hassle of trying to update with v2.


#12

It's certainly what I'd choose. :slight_smile:

it is however, an expensive hobby and maybe one can save $ -- enough to also buy 2 Pico's, assuming "hassle" appeals :slight_smile:


#13

That's a good point as well. We now have multiple options to go with. The more the better.


#14

Energy Avenue is REALLY fast on shipping. Plus, use code SHIPFREE18 for free shipping up through the 31st!


#15

Seems Energy Ave raised their price on the SmartBridgePRO to $100

I received an email from Lutron today indicating they will be revealing a new Caseta product in the next few days (CES 2019 no doubt). Should be interesting to see what they have cooked up.


#17

Just received the same email. I got all excited by the title and then disappointed when I opened up the email and it said 'in the next couple of days', lol. Well, just send me an email when you are willing to talk about it then!


#18

Would be awesome if they come out with a fan controller for Caseta. They have one but it’s not compatible


#19

Saw someone post a link to this new FCC filing elsewhere, and it looks like a Caséta fan controller to me: https://fccid.io/JPZ0119/User-Manual/User-Manual-4096105.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1UoPS5G9MJshkUXwRVU7ayAeCzbiO0l2IA06TADNuhtB9dEoGtiE0cwyo

I'm guessing the existing one is the Maestro one that doesn't work with the Lutron Smart Bridge/Smart Bridge Pro for Caséta? This one looks new and like it would!


#20

Correct Maestro. I had a few years ago and like them but disappointed they wouldn’t work with my Caseta Pro hub when I got it.
