    iOS 10 - Home app. PICO remotes are missing

    The new Home app in iOS is pretty great. I can now control my Lutron Caseta switches and Philips Hue lights from within the same app.

    One big missing feature is the ability to set PICO remotes as accessories in the Home app, and be able to use the Home app's automation function to add actions to PICO remotes. This would be a hug improvement and would allow PICO to become a physical controller/remote for any HomeKit products. Would make Caseta a must have in any HomeKit setup :)

    I completely agree with you and want this feature added so badly. I'm currently using a discontinued Staples Connect to achieve this which sucks because Eve outlet switches, which are HomeKit compatible, are too new for the Staples Connect and I have to turn of my Hue bulbs using the Pico remote and then using Siri to turn of the Eve switches, I wish I could do it all with the Pico remote.

    HomeKit's Home app is not going to get Picos or Taps any time soon. But you can see it all in one app - Caseta dimmers and switches, Pico remotes, Hue bulbs, as well as Hue taps - if you add them to the HomeSense app.
