The Home+ iOS software was officially updated to provide support for the Apple Watch. Moving from version 8.3.0 to 9.0.

And . . . It's pretty basic. The way you need to set the app up for watch control is very counter intuitive. To setup the lights you want to control from the watch, you need to first add them in Settings on the iPhone, back where you can select multiple systems. I can't add Keypad buttons for scenes, presumably due to a bug in the software. It's there, I just can't select it. Only individual loads are working. Glances are supported on the watch, but it only lisst a summary of active loads. It would have been great if a single button could be assigned to, say, turn those loads off.

Notably, Lutron missed a great feature for the iPhone, notification center button support to activate lights are scenes, like the HUE software or HomeSense for Lutron.

Is there a list of compatible ceiling fans? Is there any lighting load (within the load rating) that will not work with a phase adaptive dimmer?

From the instructions the 2ANF fan speed control should only be used with PSC type motors (Permanent Split Capacitor) Most traditional fans are PSC, but you'll have to get with the fan mnf. to determine this. ~ Some of the newer fans have been using a D.C. motor, typically with a proprietary control. These should be avoided if for use with the 2ANF or you can switch only on the 8ANS~

I haven't seen a case where something didn't work with an 6NA. You do still have some special circumstances where you may need a fluorescent dimmer for certain 3 wire dimming ballasts, and/or 0-10v dimming on some fluorescent and/or LED drivers. It may not always be the best dimmer for every application, but if we don't know the final load type we specify this dimmer.

I asked Casablanca which of their fans would be compatible with a Lutron fan speed switch and received this answer:
None are, you have to use our controls only, that applies to both Casablanca and Hunter.

Thank you.
Casablanca also doesn't list if their AC fans have PSC motors. What brand ceiling fan has anyone used?

i suggest you search the Hansen fan distributor website. Search for fans with pull chains (search filter, IIRC). If you can't find one you like, call Hansen by phone and ask about models with PSC motors.

Paul, thanks for the tip on the PSC motors.
