What you need to know

  • Lutron's Caséta Wireless Outdoor Smart Plug is now available.
  • Latest Lutron accessory sports IP-65 weather and dust-resistance.
  • Outdoor Plug supports HomeKit, Alexa, Google Assistant, and more.

Lutron has announced that the company's first smart solution for the outdoors — the Caséta Wireless Outdoor Smart Plug, is now available. First introduced back in January of this year, the Caséta Wireless Outdoor Smart Plug brings convenient app and voice controls to outdoor lighting, decor, pumps, power tools, and more.

Ideal for smart control of landscape and string lighting, holiday lights and inflatables, and some motors and pumps, the new Caséta Outdoor Smart Plug gives homeowners convenient control of their exterior lights via the free Lutron app. For example, a homeowner can set their patio string lights to come on 15 minutes before sunset, adding a touch of magic to the perfect summer evening with family or friends.

The Caséta Wireless Outdoor Smart Plug sports an IP-65 weather and dust-resistance rating, keeping it protected from the elements year-round. The Outdoor Plug features a single, smart outlet capable of handling 15A lighting loads, 1/2 HP motor loads, and 1,200 VA transformer and ballast loads.

Lutron's plug is compatible with HomeKit, Alexa, the Google Assistant, and Ring, when paired with a Lutron Caséta Wireless Smart Bridge. The plug connects to the Smart Bridge via Lutron's Clear Connect RF Technology which offers fast response times and rock-solid reliability at distances of up to 60-feet.

Clear Connect capabilities also enable control of the Outdoor Plug with Lutron's Pico Remotes, light switches, and motion sensors. Lutron's light switches are currently our top pick for both best HomeKit light switches and best smart light switches, and the Caséta Wireless Motion Sensor offers blazing-fast performance, but lacks HomeKit.

The Lutron Caséta Wireless Outdoor Smart Plug is now available for a suggested retail price of $79.95. The Outdoor Plug can be purchased online through Home Depot and Lowes and is coming soon to Amazon and Best Buy.

  • Disappointed in this review: it was easy not to notice the need for a Lutron bridge to use this plug, so now I need to spend more money. Sure, I will try to read more carefully from now on, but please make more than passing reference to these types of things in the future.
