    Have just been informed by Lutron EU, that there are no plans to bring this to the UK. What is the point of only having it available in the US? I was planning on adding a Lutron Serena window blind, but if I can't control it via HomeKit , then I probably won't bother. It's just infuriating to see a mature product available, but I can't get it in the UK.

    The UK market is tiny vs the US market - the cost to have wireless kit 'certified/approved/adapted' for the UK market is likely way too high vs. the potential returns.

    Imagine the UK as one of the states in the US and it's easy to imagine why it often just doesn't happen. Control4 took several years to bring a square form factor dimmer to the market and that product also serves a few other markets including China.

    Couldn't wait for Lutron to get its act together, so installed a Serena blind anyway...
