Two days into Hubitat. Came over from Wink.
First, want to tell you how awesome this community is. I've been reading through a ton of threads and it feels really good to know there are so many of you that are happy to help us nubes out.
My question is around the use of Pico's. I know this has been beaten to death, sort of, so please bare with with me.
I own several Caséta dimmers and Pico's, which were previously used to control dumb LED lights through Wink.
I now own a Lutron Pro bridge and have moved over my Caséta's and Pico's, but I'm intrigued by how much you guys love the Pico's. I feel like I'm missing out on something incredible! One thing I'd like clarification on is to know more about the actual devices you are controlling with Pico's. I read about lights, fans, locks, garage doors, etc..., but would be curious to know more about the make/model of the devices.
For Pico's to control dumb light bulbs, you still need a smart switch, smart dimmer, or some sort of other smart module, correct?
The Pico's can't dim a light unless connected to a smart dimmer, correct? They cant make lights dim if they are connected to a standard on/off smart switch, correct?
What I have been a bit puzzled with is that some of you own Pico's but not Casétas. I'm just wondering why you would purchase a different brand's smart-dimmer? Is it because of cost, functionality, or something I haven't thought of yet?
Thanks guys!!! I just haven't had by "ah ha!" moment yet.
(by the way, I'm also using TP-Link Kasa (wifi) switches, Wemo (wifi) switches, and Hue bulbs and remotes.)
