While Amazon's Alexa-enabled devices get more and more features to play music and order goods from the online retailer, it's IoT that's making it the must-have device for the home. With it, instead of reaching for a smartphone and launching an app, you can simply say, "Alexa" and control an increasing amount of connected devices. Now Lutron's Caseta Wireless lighting system is ready to be told what to do.

Lutron joins Philips Hue, WeMo, Nest, Insteon and Samsung's Smart Things with Alexa support. Users can add Lutron devices via the Alexa app.

Once set up, in addition to turning the lights on and of with their voice, users can adjust the brightness of Lutron bulbs by varying percentages.
