Lutron's Caseta Wireless works with Google Home

Techstination feature for Friday, May 26, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Lutron…which makes Caseta Wireless kits for the smart home…is now working with Google Home along with Amazon’s Echo and Apple’s Siri.   It’s a matter of convenience according to product development manager Neil Orchowski…

“From a voice control perspective, there’s nothing better than really controlling your lights because it’s something that you do every day.  It’s a major convenience factor whether you’re walking in the front door carrying a bunch of groceries and you want to turn on the lights without actually pushing a button.  Or walking down the stairs or sitting on the couch and don’t want to get up to dim the lights while watching a movie.  Or even the aging in place community, there’s a lot of great use cases that customers are finding.”

You can find a starter kit for under 160 dollars.  There more info at CasetaWireless.com.
