PSA: Lutron Box NON-Dimmable Switches are hot trash!

PSA: Lutron Box NON-Dimmable Switches are hot trash!

After I completely changed my house into cassettes, I felt the need to warn anyone to jump into them to stay away from their indivisible option, if possible. NDs have 5 (!) Potential wires to connect and cannot be easily connected to any circuit that has the switch at the end of a run or has no neutral available (at least from the research I’ve done, including calling Lutron ). Adjustable switches only need to break the charging wire and not require neutral. Probably some of the easiest switching installations I’ve done, including stupid switches, once you consider 3 peak modes. Only the 2 loads and ground. With similar prices on the auction sites and what else, I would have reached all the degree of diminution if I had known. That being said, I now have a few NDs left to get rid of.
