The outdoor smart plug is IP-65 rated, with best-in-class, solid core construction to protect the device’s inner electronics against the finest dust and heaviest rainfall. The outdoor smart plug is built to last and can withstand severe weather season after season.
Matt Swatsky, Lutron’s Vice-President of the Residential Mid-market Business, said, “It’s essentially weatherproof, dirtproof, and sunproof. A homeowner can now enjoy all the benefits of a Caséta system for their outside spaces.”
The smart plug can be used to control landscape and string lighting, holiday lights and inflatables, and some motors and pumps. For example, a homeowner can set their patio string lights to come on 15 minutes before sunset.
You can control the smart plug via the Lutron app or the Pico remote control. It also integrates with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Ring video doorbells and cameras. Additionally, it has a built-in smart timer, which means, unlike traditional timers, the outdoor smart plug stays on the right time year-round, even with Daylight Savings.
Pricing and Availability:
The Caséta Outdoor Smart Plug will be available late March online at major retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowe’s, as well as at electrical and A/V distributors. The suggested retail price is $79.95.
