I could use some help from people smarter than I am. My basement has recessed lighting and I’d like to add a smart dimmer. There’s a 3 way setup:
Switch 1: On/Off switch, 3 wires and neutral wires capped in the back
Switch 2: Dimmer switch, 3 wires, no neutral
Is my only option a Lutron Caseta? I don’t really love the idea of having to buy a separate hub just to control one switch. But even if I put a different brand of smart dimmer on switch 1 with the neutrals, from what I’ve read, I’d still need a neutral wire on switch 2 for a compatible remote switch; or does one exist? In lieu of a remote switch on #2, could I just keep a “dumb” on/off switch there and never use it (I appreciate that it’s not the most elegant solution)?
Any help would be appreciated.
