Going from Zwave to Lutron, worth it and what to do about the lock?
To me, I think the difference is that the Lutron ones will continue to work, while the Z-Wave switches may or may not. Not that I think they will physically fail, but Z-Wave just isn't as able to deal with changes in the environment, and it's just easy to mess up the Z-Wave network if you aren't really careful about how you manage ids and associations and such. None of that is an issue with Lutron. Once you set it up, it should just work.

Of course another thing is that, if you were to ever sell, you'd have to pull all that Z-Wave stuff out most likely. The next owner probably won't want it or understand how to maintain it or deal with it failing. The Lutron system, OTOH, will work perfectly well as a standard lighting system, and they can probably find plenty of local installers who understand it if they need help.
