Lutron Maestro Remote Dimmer- Rewiring Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have the Lutron Maestro Remote Dimmer Switch in my HT at the moment and for what I need, I really enjoy it. Currently, it's set up as a Single Pole. I want to wire up another normal on/off switch for a 3 way circuit with this dimmer. My question is: Can this Lutron Maestro Remote Dimmer work as a 3 way switch with another normal ON/Off switch? I don't have the instructions any longer that came with it.

I looked at one online and there is a Package you can buy for multi locations that includes the Remote, the Maestro Dimmer, and then another dimmer switch for the 2nd location. I don't need another dimming function for it. I also don't know if that's a different Maestro Dimmer that's used to wire up as 3 way. Anyway, if anyone knows if I can wire up another On/Off Switch as a 3-way with no problems with this Lutron Maestro, I'm good to go.

Here is the site I was looking at. The top shows multi locations, but underneath, with the prices, it shows a Single Location Dimmer, then the Mutli Location package, so it's confusing me. http://www.dimmers.net/maestro_ir.asp

Ok...found some small print on Lutron's website that said NOT to use Mechanical 3 way switches with these dimmers.

Yes as you found you cannot use mechanical switches with the Maestro. You have to use their accesory switch and you need the 3 way maestro IR. Above is a packaged deal for a good price. You can also find the 3 way IR by itself.

Is there a similar dimmer switch available where I could just replace one three way switch with it and leave the other switches in place?

I really just need the dimmer function at one location.

Edit - I figured it out. Looks like with any kid of digital dimmer switch, each switch that is connected to a set of lights needs to be replaced with a new switch. If you just want to replace one switch, you need to use a regular dimmer switch.
