Model: HS210
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Does anyone know if the other switch in a 3 way config can be a smart-ish switch like the Lutron MACL-153M-WH.

I'm having trouble making this work, but it would be ideal if it did as the other box also has a Lutron MACL-153M-WH in it.  So 1 box would have all Lutrons, and the other box would have all Kasa switches.

Well I figured this out on my own.  I'll post this answer in case anyone is considering this combination.

 

The Lutron MACL-153M is not a true 3-way switch.  They call it a "Single pole/ Multi-location" switch.  This means it can act like a 3-way but not in the traditional sense (ie:using the travellers and another 3 way switch to complete the circuit).

In the end I bought a mechanical 3 way dimmer to work in this scenario and it works great.  Although I can't control the dimming through the app, at least the light is dimmer and I can control the on-off through the app.

If anyone is interested in this set up; this is the switch I bought:
