    Wireless Dimmer and Pico Remote turn on at different rates

    I have a Caseta Wireless dimmer (P-PKG1W-WH) paired with a pico remote. From a completely off state, when I turn on the 3 recessed LED lights from the wireless dimmer, the lights come on just fine. However, from a complete off state, when I use the Pico remote to turn the lights on, they fail to come on. The Pico remote can dim them, turn them off, etc. perfectly. I have noticed that the wireless dimmer ramps up much faster when I use it compared to the Pico Remote. That is, I see the dimming levels 0-6 take just (say) .5 second to go through when activated from the dimmer switch but (say) 1.5 seconds to go through when activated with the Pico switch. Question: is there a way to make the Pico activate the ramp up at the same speed as the dimmer? This way, my Pico remote will be able to turn on my lights from a completely off state.

    Honestly, the Pico isn't that smart. I would try resetting the dimmer to factory defaults and re-pairing the Pico/dimmer.

    Here is our very own SDR-Mike (and future hand model!) demonstrating the reset process.
