A smarter smart plug for outdoors from Lutron's Caseta

Techstination feature for Friday, April 2, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       A smarter smart plug for the outdoors.     It’s a new addition to Lutron’s Caseta line up….and brings the company’s smart home technology into the outdoor space.   VP Matt Swatsky…

“We found that people are spending time at home and investing in their backyards and their outdoors.  With this plug in module you can plug it in and integrate it with different things.   So we do have sensors that you could use but you could also tie it to your Ring Doorbell as well so that when someone taps the doorbell…it can turn on lights outside foyer or anything like that.”

The Caseta Outdoor Smart Plug can be controlled by a Pico remote…or through the Caseta app…and Lutron is known for delivering reliability.    It can be very frustrating when smart home gear doesn’t work as promised.   Find more info at
