So excited to share such an easy way to turn your home, even if it’s as old as ours, into a smart home!

No replacing bulbs, no buying super fancy complicated equipment. All you need is one of the Caséta by Lutron switches and a smart bridge.
The Smart Bridge is a very tiny white box that plugs into your router and operates all of your smart lighting and outlets. It doesn’t actually use WiFi, so you can rely on it running even if your wifi is down. It’s the brains behind the entire operation and allows for features such as voice control and scheduling.
It’s not pictured here but you can bet it was tiny enough to hide behind a picture frame in our living room where our router is located!
We installed one of the Lutron smart switches in our bedroom for our ceiling fan light! You don’t need to replace your bulbs, because the smart is actually in the switch!
It took us less than 15 minutes to swap the switch out, and the wiring is so simple! Connect the switch to the smart bridge using the Lutron app in minutes and it’s ready to go! I have mine interfaced with our Google Home so that we can voice control the ceiling light now, but I also love that we can use the switch if we want to.
We also received one of the Pico Smart Remotes which also works with any of the Lutron smart switches! This allows you or guests to control your lights and it can be mounted anywhere, kind of like a wireless switch itself!
Caséta by Lutron also makes smart plugs so you can turn your nightstand lights and other electronics into smart lights as well!
I’ll tell you what I’m most excited about! My husband can no longer complain about me turning the fan switch off haha! We can just voice activate it from bed! This was seriously the easiest project we’ve ever tackled, and the fact that I can lay in bed and tell my light switch what to do, that just takes the cake!
