Works just as advertised but Home Depot's picture is misleading
March 04, 2016
I ordered this Diva dimmer because I had installed one previously and it had worked perfectly. I also chose the Diva over the Maestro because it has a simple adjustment dial to set the dimming range, rather than the more complicated "programming" system, where you have to push and hold buttons in a certain order until light blink, etc. The Maestro may handle more varied installation situations because of its programming, but I am a simple guy and this is more intuitive for me.
For my latest install, the switch performed perfectly, although I have not tried dimming different types of bulbs on the same circuit yet (so far just using LED bulbs). Installation was easy with the included hardware, although the instructions are more complicated than they need to be because they cover four different Lutron dimmers. This dimmer comes with pigtails and wire nuts (rather than screw terminals), so installation is a snap, as long as you have room in your box for the extra wire.
The one thing that was a surprise to me (admittedly because I knew what I wanted and, therefore, didn't bother to read all the fine print on the product page) was that this dimmer does not come with the 2-part, screwless wallplate, even though the Home Depot web page pictures it with one and the instructions cover installing it. I had a few spares from a recent kitchen remodel, so it was no big deal, but it might have been annoying if I relied on the product picture and had to suddenly run to the hardware store for a wallplate.
Nice Design, Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Great Dimming
