After years of poo-pooing home automation, suddenly I find myself getting on board, at least in a small way. My husband got tired of repairing the under-cabinet lights in a dark corner of the our kitchen, local stores no longer sell the bulbs that burn out at sometimes alarming rates. Out of fear I left the house while he rewired the lighting and installed LED strips and a Lutron dimmer switch. Only after it was all working did I ask if the dimmer switch was HomeKit compatible – he ended up ordering a Lutron dimmer switch from the Apple Store which should arrive tomorrow. Now he wants to install LED strips under all the cabinets and control them with HomePod so he can say ‘Hey Siri read my mind and set the ambiance so the kitchen doesn’t look like Times Square on New Years Eve.’
Does anyone have experience with Lutron dimmers? Any advice on using them with a HomePod?
