Thumbs down

In another round of ridiculousness, Lutron just confirmed there will be a gen 2 bridge that will enable the support for Siri/HomeKit (and I don't know what else, if anything). It was 10 months ago that the bridge started shipping.

I sure hope they do an upgrade program. This just embarassing product management.

Agreed. They're just ruddlerless in the face of emerging tech.

quick question about Cree bulbs:

I am relamping my HT, replacing first gen LED bulbs that required one regular incandescent bulb to be left in each circuit to dim properly

the new bulbs are CREE Par 30 Long neck 40 degree flood sku 4966500836

I was able to get 5 of them from Home Depot: tested them (on a Lutron Grafik Eye) and they work fine

they are used for down lighting in recessed cathedral ceiling fixtures that vary from 9-15 feet high

now I go back to Home Depot to buy more and all they have are the same thing with 25 degree coverage: and the lighting manager claims they never carried the 40 degree bulbs

question is does it make a big difference if I have a mix of both 25 and 40 degree?

please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it

Thanks for visiting our quaint thread, man, that's an awesome number of posts…

I'm not sure you'd want to mix and match them. Maybe if you can put them on each end of a room that could work, but 25 to 40 degrees is a big swing.

I liked it so much I decided to become an alarm.com dealer and 2GIG installer. Happy to help anyone. Self monitoring is possible cheaply.

BTW 11.0 is out with support for HomeKit on the not available Connect Bridge 2. It also supports loopback protection in this build
