Lutron Smart Bridge vs. Wink 2

Lutron Smart Bridge vs Wink 2

Let’s take a look at the differences between the Lutron Smart Bridge vs. Wink 2. 

Most of the differences are slight, but Wink’s third-party support is a big one.

While both models are compatible with Caseta Wireless Dimmers & Switches, we feel that Wink 2 with its more improved home integration is the better pick.

However, if you wish to use Apple HomeKit with your smart bridge, then it’s worth looking into the Lutron Smart Bridge.
