Question about Lutron Electrical Supplies
We have a Lutron lighting system which was installed in 2008, I am not sure which system it is. Last night when we went to turn on the lights, they would not go on (except for the bedroom/bath control), unless we went into the switch in the garage and pressed "Home" in which case certain lights went on. When we press any of the switches the house (again, except for the bedroom/bath), they just blink and the lights will not goon.

At the switch you have a feed wire coming in this brings in power which originates in the electric panel. You also have a feed or feeds goings out to other lts or switches, this you seem to have on the switch. instead of the closet switch loop.undo all the wires. find the only hot this is the one wire you can touch to the others and make different lts come on i reccomend getting a electric tester to do this. FInd the wire that goes to the closet lt. Once your sure put it to the side. wirenut all other wires together with the hot wire. this makes all other switches independantly hot. connect the hot to the switch and the closet lt to switch. I HOPE THIS MAKES SOME SENSE TO YOU . let me know if i can help

why not connevct them up to a movement sensor, that way they come on when you make a movement near them. So they dont fire off when cats or birds fly by make sure you set them to close to your height. Then you can see your way to the shed turn the lighjt on that you can now see where the switch is and then turn it back off when you leave. Most of these sensor lights can be set toa timed on period
cheap and easy to install

I suggest you cut 3 pigtails out of your black wire (about 5-6" each and strip them so you can put a nut to tie them all together on the main wire, then do the same for your grounds using green 5-6" strips of wire and then connect all 3 switches with the pigtails to their proper locations. This WILL fix your problem.

SOURCE: not sure how to wire this switch
Switch will have a commom terminal that the hot wire connects to.
The other three terminals are for the devices -- light, fan and other device.
The white wires should be the grounded wire returns for the circuits unless they are identified by color tape to be hot line side of power.
Be careful of the grounded side of circuit, can shock or kill, treat all wires as being energised. If you are not sure, use a electrical tester,
or get help.

I cannot find a specific troubleshoot manual for Lutron dimmers
So I suggest 4 things:
1) Feel the dimmer switch for heat >>> if it is getting hot (not warm), then that dimmer is dangerous, so remove dimmer immediately, add up your total bulb wattage to make sure you're below the 600 or 1000 watt capacity of you model dimmer
2) Look at the list of manuals shown at link, and make sure your dimmer matches the type of bulb you are using. Your dimmer model number and wattage should be printed on side or back of dimmer.
3) These dimmers use electronics to control the lights. Electronics go bad. The higher the wattage controlled by your dimmer, the more heat, and the shorter the dimmer life.
4) Short in the wires. Replace your dimmer with one from Home Depot and see if the condition persists. If it does, then a short is probably somewhere in that circuit. Troubleshooting a short is another long answer that needs more wiring detail ... please repost if you have a short.
