Nest Cam - By leveraging the intelligence of Nest's person alerts, Caséta Wireless dimmers and switches can now turn on when a person is detected by Nest Cam Indoor or Outdoor, conveniently adding additional security and providing peace of mind.
Apple® HomeKit - Lutron's Caséta Wireless system supports Apple HomeKit, enabling homeowners to control their Lutron dimmers and systems using Siri on their iPhone® or iPad®.
Amazon Alexa - Following its integration with Amazon Alexa last year, Alexa can now control lighting, shading and temperature scenes with Caséta Wireless, RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS, making it easy for homeowners to set a scene by simply saying, "Alexa, Good Morning."
Logitech® Pop Home Switch - Everyone in the family can trigger actions and adjust Caséta Wireless dimmers and Serena Shades with the Logitech Pop Home Switch.

Best in Class Connections
Since launching RadioRA in 1998, Lutron has continued to form alliances with best-in-class brands, integrating new technology, like voice control that makes it easy for customers to interact with and control their connected homes. Convenient, connected control enhances peace of mind and improves quality of life. In addition to voice control with Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa, Lutron works hard to align with brands such as Nest, Comcast, AT&T Digital Life, Savant, Honeywell and Logitech.
"Consumers want simple, reliable technology in their homes, and easy control of their household systems," said Michael Smith, Vice President of Residential Sales. "Integration with Lutron Caséta Wireless, RadioRA 2, and HomeWorks QS systems does just that - provides customers with the ability to say, ‘Alexa, turn on my lights' or ‘Siri, Good Morning,' while still preserving their ability to control lights with the Lutron Pico remote, keypad or Lutron app when voice control is not practical."
