Solution E – Lutron Caseta with Pico Remote – Neutral NOT Required

Uses a Lutron Caseta no-neutral dimmer as the main switch and a Pico Remote as the add-on switch. This requires a hub that supports the Lutron Caseta switches or a Hub that can integrate with the Smart Bridge Pro (SmartThings, Hubitat Elevation).

Pros: Simple to install, great option for non-neutral situations, can turn a normal switch into a three-way, picos can also be programmed to run scenes

Cons: Switch will not match style of other smart switches, more costly than dumb add-on, requires a hub that supports Lutron Caseta OR integration with the Lutron Smart Bridge Pro
