Eero and Lutron Caseta Hub

I just installed my Eero network, and find that my Lutron Caseta Hub will not work when I have it plugged into my existing modem/router combo.  I get an "offline" message on Lutron devices.  Yet it works perfectly if I plug it directly into the single available ethernet port on the Eero.  I have turned off wireless on the modem/router to avoid network conflicts.  I have also tried putting the router into bridge mode.  Nothing so far has helped.  Will other hubs (Hue) have to be plugged into the Eero to work?  Any suggestions?

  • If you put your eero into Bridge mode, then it would work to leave your Lutron hub connected to your modem/router. You would probably need to powercycle those devices after putting eero into Bridge mode to make sure they get their IP address from the modem/router. Otherwise, if you connect everything to your eero, it will also work fine. If you need more ports, you can get a simple 5 port unmanaged switch and connect that to the eero and then hardwire your other devices (like your hubs) to the switch.

  • thanks.  Very helpful to see both of those options.  The only downside with putting the Eero into Bridge mode, as I understand it, is losing some of the advanced features.  I like the switch idea!  Again, thanks!
