    Capture dimming level when press and hold is used to cycle dimming

    I'd like a button to learn or remember the last chosen dimming level. When a user press/holds a button for a dim cycle ... off/dim/high/dim/off ... and lets go, the system would remember that dimming level. The next time the button is pressed, it would turn off the light. Subsequently, if the lights are off, when the button is pressed, the lights are turned on to the remembered dimming level. This would often eliminate the need to create scenes or for a user to change those settings via an app.Since there is no built-in feature for this function, can it be simulated by programming?

    You are looking for a Scene Saver type feature that they used to have in HWI and for some reason they left out and QS and even QSX. I have asked for it repeatedly and its just not gonna happen. Lutron has said it would require updated keypad firmware which I think is BS- all the logic should be on the processor side. It should be able to recognize a button hold and then capture the lighting levels. No way that logic would be internal to a keypad. Most other control systems have this feature and its a big omission. But Lutron doesnt seem to understand.

    Yeah, I wish it were a supported feature, but I understand it is not. Is there any way to accomplish the same thing via programming, perhaps by having a sequence for dimming as multiple steps, and record the last step executed before the button is released?
