Lutron Casèta’s Smart Bridge v2 works well with Siri out-of-the-box, and has been integrated into Amazon’s Alexa . With Google’s push to get Google Assistant up and running on more Android devices (those smartphones running Marshmallow and Nougat), it looks like Lutron has finally added support for their Casèta line of home automation products! This gives Android users a direct link to the Lutron Smart Bridge without having to go through a 3rd party like a Samsung SmartThings or an Amazon Alexa to voice-control lights. This should help consumers that want to voice-activate their lights alleviate some of the extra cost for an otherwise expensive line of products. Google Assistant doesn’t stop at just lighting, it also works with Serena shades. This makes Lutron Casèta home automation so much more useful.
One downside to Google Assistant is that it doesn’t support scenes at the moment, so you’ll still need to use workarounds for that.
Update 8/1/17. Scenes are now supported in Google Assistant!. You will have to de-authorize Lutron in the “Home control” section of Google Assistant settings. When you reauthorize it, you will be able to choose any of your scenes and add them to Google Assistant!
