Section (3):  Adding Scenes and Adding People

In the Home App at the home screen you can select + and the the options in the picture below will appear. In HomeKit you are not able to control the Scenes within the Lutron App so you would need to "Add Scenes" here to control with Siri Voice Control. You would also be able to share the HomeKit functionality with another user in the home by selecting "Add People" and sending them the invite.
