I understand that the Hubitat hub does not support the now-discontinued 'Lutron Connected Bulb Remote' (LCBR). However, I have a few of these remotes and would like to put them to work if I can.
What I would like to do is:
- pair a Cree Connected (Zigbee) bulb to HE -> control bulb from HE
- pair the LCBR to the same bulb -> control bulb from remote (without intervention from HE)
- I understand the hub itself will not be able to utilize the remote.
Is this possible? A post here led me to believe this should be possible, but I can't get it to work.
I can pair the bulb to HE, and then control the bulb from HE.
But as soon as I pair the LCBR to the bulb, I lose control of the bulb from the hub, it's almost like the remote steals the bulb from the hub.
Is there a trick to getting this to work? The post I linked above seemed to suggest it is possible.
[And yes, I know the 5-button picos are "better" (I have several and am already using them elsewhere, so I am not looking for responses to tell me to switch to the regular pico). I'm interested to know if it's possible to use the LCBRs that I already have.]
