    Angry Pico Remote + HomeKit

    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 :)

    Currently you can do this by using a lamp dimmer as triggers. There have been a lot of request for lutron to add virtual dimmers to their bridge. Hofully they listen because this would be amazing for homekit automation and probably other types of automation as well.

    Yes! Adding PICO remotes to HomeKit as an accessory is exactly what I am looking for and want, there is nothing in the market place that gives you the flexibility or efficiency of a PICO remote.. I don't know why they are hesitating to do this... especially if more Lutron Hubs will be sold in the process. Hope they add this soon!
