Lutron offers a family of "C•L" model dimmers (for use with dimmable CFL/LEDs) which includes the Maestro product line: http://www.lutron.com/EDUCATION-TRAINING/LCE/Pages/DimmingCFLsandLEDs.aspx#credenza

According to the Maestro product line page the applicable model numbers are MACL-153M, MACL-153MH.

Does this product actually exist? I have been unable to find any trace of it anywhere except the Lutron site. You can't even buy it direct from the Lutron store.

  • The Lutron website was just recently updated to preface references to the Maestro C.L dimmer with "COMING SOON."

Give it about a month and it will be out. Our company just had a meeting with our Lutron representative and it should be out real soon. He did not give a date but I think they were waiting for Lightfair to make it official.

EDIT I talked with the factory rep today and he said orders (on distributors level) are being accepted now and the C•L should be available for consumers in July.

  • I used to be a factory rep for Lutron many years ago. They are a great company and always on cutting edge of lighting controls. Expensive stuff, but an engineer's dream. May 11, 2012 at 9:23
  • Fantastic, I'll keep watch for it. I have a number of other Maestro components and would like to keep everything coordinated.

  • @sherlock homes I did factory training in 89 & 04. I thought the first trip was great but the second blew me away. They are a great company. Now they are concentrating on energy savings more than just summing.

It looks like they are available. I ordered some from this site: http://www.dimmers.net/maestro-cfl-led-dimmers.asp

I've been waiting for these to come out since my whole house is Meastro.


I just spoke with Lutron technical support this afternoon. I can confirm what lqlarry wrote. The person I spoke with told me that this switch will be available in 2-3 weeks and that it will be at Lowe's and Home Depot first, then at other stores a few weeks later. I plan to watch their websites and order it when it becomes available. If anyone is looking for a Lutron Maestro IR (remote controlled) switch that is compatible with dimmable CFL/LEDs, the representative told me that they don't have a product coming out yet and that he did not know when/if it is coming out.
