Before You Begin

Pico remotes add additional points of wireless control to a Caséta switch, dimmer, fan control, or shade. All Pico remotes have a 10-year typical battery life and use a replaceable CR2032 battery.

If you are ready to install your Pico remote, review this installation video for assistance.

    • Additional models available: PJ2-4B-GWH-P02 / PJ2-4B-GWH-P03
    • When paired standalone (not in the app) this remote will function like the PJ2-4B-GWH-L31.

In standalone use, all devices paired to a Pico scene remote will respond to any individual button press from the remote (excluding the L21). A device cannot ignore a button press from a 4B Pico scene remote unless all devices (including the remote) are programmed into the Lutron app.

Note: The L31 Pico scene remote does not program through the Lutron app. Any button pressed from this device will send a command to adjust all devices it is paired with.

A Pico remote can be programmed to any number of wireless blinds, curtains or Caséta lighting controls that are within the 30 ft range of the Pico. One Caséta lighting control can be programmed to a maximum of 10 Pico remotes.

Where to use a Pico remote

The Pico remote is commonly used in 3-way or 4-way applications where an additional point of control is needed. Instead of running additional wire, pair a Pico remote to an installed Caséta switch or dimmer, mount the Pico to the wallbox using the adapter and control the lights from both locations. Pictured above are the components of the PJ2-WALL-WH-L01 kit.


 Pico Remote Mounting Options: Wallbox Adapter, Pedestall, Car Clip, Mounting Kit 

Pico remotes can be mounted to a wallbox adapter or pedestal, clipped to a visor, or affixed to locations other than a traditional wallbox using the Pico’s included adhesive or optional mounting kit. From left to right in the picture above are the:

  • PICO-WBX-ADAPT – For mounting a Pico remote into a traditional wallbox or to drywall.
  • L-PED1-WH – A tabletop pedestal which the Pico remote docks into.
    • Also available in 2 and 3 Pico remote docking configurations.
  • PICO-CAR-CLIP – A car visor clip that the Pico remote docks into.
  • PICO-SM-KIT – For mounting a Pico remote to a non-smooth surface.

Do I need a smart hub?

Although it is not required for functionality between a Pico remote and a Caséta device, adding the Caséta Smart Hub to your system unlocks additional programming options for Pico scene remotes P01/P02/P03 and EL2/ES2.

Once programmed into the Lutron app, the individual buttons on these Pico scene remotes can be edited in the app (see below). Additionally, the Lutron app allows you to choose which devices are and are not affected by the Pico scene remote’s button presses. Simply uncheck a device to ensure it is not part of that scene's programming.
