I have been slowly changing the switches in my house to the Lutron Caseta dimmers, which work amazingly with HomeKit and I couldn't be happier with...however, what I really want to know is why Lutron appears to not advertise or make widely available the NON-DIMMER switches in the Caseta line (https://www.amazon.com/Lutron-PD-5W...&qid=1468327043&sr=8-4&keywords=caseta+switch). There are some places that I would like to put these that having a dimmer makes NO sense and is just basically confusing...bathroom fans, some outdoor porch lights, and (maybe) the garbage disposal unit. These things seem like they should be LESS expensive than the dimmers, but they appear to be both MORE expensive and far less available. Does anyone have any idea why this is? Do they not work as well? And, as a followup, if they do work, can anyone recommend a place to buy them that is more reasonably priced? Thanks!

I have been doing so as well. No idea why they charge more for the non-dimmable switches. I think I'll try the Lutron shades next. Sorry I couldn't help with your issue.
