Imagine: you walk through the door after a grueling day at work, and upon opening the door, your lights turn on, and music greets your arrival. This is possible when you connect your Sonos sound system to your Lutron Caseta. Upon pairing the two, you can schedule music to play at certain times of the day, wirelessly control your lights, and much more.
Continue reading to learn more about how to connect Sonos to Lutron Caseta. As long as you have all of the necessary materials, the process should only take minutes.
Before going a step further, make sure that you have all of these things on hand:
Contrary to misconceptions online, you do need the Pico Remote to control your devices. While this allows you to wirelessly control your appliances, it is not necessary.
Before pairing your Lutron Caseta to your sound system, first, make sure that it works. Give it a command through the app to test it out. If everything’s good, proceed to the next step. If not, make sure that all of your devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.
Once you’ve opened the app and logged into your account:
You may be asked to enter your login credentials again, as well as make some introductory settings. If it asks you to authorize anything, select “yes.” At this point, all of your systems should be online. Be sure to click “save” before quitting out of the app.

They need to be on the same network so they can “talk” to each other. Make sure your Lutron Caseta smart bridge is also connected to the internet.
Give your Lutron Caseta a try. Did it work? If so, ignore this step and move on. If not, try doing a hard reset. You can reset your Lutron bridge by locating the button on the back and holding it down for 20 seconds. You might need to reenter some information when it comes back online, but this should give your bride a “clean slate.”
Refer to the steps we listed above and give it a second try. Make sure that:

This might go without saying, but you can’t just take your Sonos out of the box and immediately connect to your Lutron Caseta. You’ll need to download the Sonos app, get the device online, and give it a test run before doing anything else. If you have not yet set up your Sonos system, click here to learn more.
