New Lutron Caseta dimmer

Looks like a ripoff of Inovelli’s paddle designs. Different radio/protocol underneath, of course…

Only so many designs you can put on a light switch and have it still be intuitive to use for the masses. I dont think Inovelli was even the first to use the design style.

Personally I am excited about the Diva’s as they don’t require a neutral and work with the casseta hub, so I may finally have a highly reliable and stable way to tie the physical switches in my home into the collective.

It looks like the old Diva switch with an indicator light added to it so I would say it’s a ripoff. Either way, the more options the better especially coming from Lutron Caseta line.

To my eyes that indicator light seems to be a dimmer slider on the side and the paddles just on/off switching, like analog Levitons or something? I love Inovelli, but seriously wish they had gone this route with the physical design. Much more luddite friendly.

Thanks for posting, I was not aware of the Diva products at all. I had abandoned Caseta years ago after the household rebellion against the old school 4-button dimmers. This seems like it has a lot of potential for folks who “just want to turn the lights on” but live with a smart-home addict.


There were so many complaints about the look of the Caseta dimmers/switches since their introduction you would have thought that they would have done this sooner!

What I did not realize was that not only did they release the Diva dimmer, but they also released a Claro switch and will soon be releasing a Claro accessory switch -
