Voice control with Siri has become even better with the latest updates from Apple. From now on, as with Google Assistant, multiple commands are possible with one voice command.

Unlike the Friends of Hue switches known in Europe, the Lutron Aurora offers a completely different design. Not without reason, because it was developed for American light switches and can be easily plugged onto them.
