Questions for beginners Lutron Box

Hey, guys, I just wanted to do a health check before pulling the trigger on a bunch of box switches for my house. I recently bought some meross switches for my house to immerse my toes in switch automation and, in terms of cost, they are homekit compatible switches. However, the switching mechanism is not high quality, so I am thinking of not exempting and going the box for a future renovation project. I’m firmly a homekit household, but there are a few small cases that I hope other Box users can respond to. For dimmable switches, can I: 1. set it so that when it lights up, it has low brightness during evenings / nights? (or is this done by simply pressing the decrease button once it is in the off state)? 2. Are there separate 2 and 3 way control switches or are they the same SKU (except one has the pico remote control)? 3. Do you set a timer to stop automatically after a period of time? (and the standby time is dynamic, as we have seen in other dimmer switches) 4. Does it support smooth fade-in / out? For regular switches, 1. set a timer to stop automatically after a period of time? (and the standby time is dynamic, as we have seen in other dimmer switches) 2. supports smooth fade-in / out And in general, if the hub is in the basement, are there problems with the 2-stage switches? I assume that all these functions are configurable only through the Cassette app and not through the iOS app at home …. Thanks !!!
