    Lightbulb WOW, 1 pico remote controlling 2 hubs.

    I have never seen this posted, and did not expect it to work. I hooked up a pico to hub 1 and set it to control the light. (ultimate goal was Homekit rules to have the front door unlock on a % on. which works perfectly)

    I then decided to use a lamp dimmer on hub 2 to run this set up, after connecting the pico to hub 2 I was very surprised to see both the light from hub 1 and hub 2 both turn on from the pico.

    Not sure if Lutron intended this to work, but if you have lights on different hubs, you can cross them over and control both with 1 pico.

    When say "hub 1" do you mean a wall dimmer and "hub 2" a lamp dimmer both paired to the same pico?

    Yes. I am assuming Sawdust paired the Pico to "hub 1" and he also paired the same Pico to "hub 2". This works!

    Then you set your scene for the Pico in each hub.

    How is a trigger of % on setup in HomeKit (I am using the "Home" app)? I am VERY interested in doing this, and saw it posted elsewhere and inquired (specific to Insteon fan control). Appreciate any information you can provide.

    thanks!

    You have to use a 3rd party app called "eve" its for the eve elgato plugs. In the rules you can set up what to do when a specific device is at a specific %.

    If you use Apple's Homekit, you do not need a third party app to trigger events. Here is an example how to use a Caseta plug-in dimmer to set events:
