Lutron is an American lighting control company. They have several lines of home automation devices that manage light switches/dimmers, occupancy sensors, HVAC controls, etc. The
lutron_caseta component in Home Assistant is responsible for communicating with the Lutron SmartBridge for these systems.
This component only supports the Caseta line of products. Current only supports Caseta dimmers as Home Assistant lights and caseta wall switches as Home Assistant switches.
When configured, the
lutron_caseta component will automatically discover dimmers and switches as setup in the Lutron SmartBridge.
To use Lutron Caseta devices in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file using the IP of your lutron Smartbridge:
lutron_caseta: host: <ip_address>
- host (Required): The IP address of the Lutron SmartBridge.
It is recommended to assign a static IP address to your Lutron SmartBridge. This ensures that it won’t change IP address, so you won’t have to change the
host if it reboots and comes up with a different IP address.
