Lutron Caseta suddenly stopped working

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7c5cc11d50>

All of a sudden when i try to control my lights via HASS i get an error that says:

Failed to call service light/turn_off. 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'write'

There’s nothing in the log about it failing to initialize or the Lutron component or anything like that. I’m not sure what changed or even what steps to follow next. I can still control the lights via the Lutron app itself.

Same here

Forgot to post but a power cycle of both my pi, Lutron hub l, and router fixed it. Even though the lutron app still worked and the pi seemed ok to.

I searched for a thread that was most recent with my error while I was out. Got home after seeing your fix, did the same thing and it works haha. Thank you!

I have this same problem on version 0.103.5, but unfortunately, the Lutron Caseta integration fails within a day or two of each HASS restart.

It’s been flaky for a while but I’m not sure exactly which version introduced the problem.

I will reboot the Lutron hub and report if that is a more durable fix.

I’m seeing the same flaky stuff happening- must’ve been a regression at some point recently.

I’ve noticed the same for past 2 days.
