    $90 US plus? I will stick with my homemade arduino remote. I can put a huge battery in it for that much.

    Not another hub!

    You'll need a hub, yes. A lutron Caseta pro hub will be sufficient.

    There is that up front cost for the hub, but if you plan on buying a couple remotes it will pay itself off. Plus, the reliability you will gain and the 10 year battery life.

    Well worth it!

    I never got that answer, pcgirl65 and no, I have not purchased one to try. Maybe mik3 can tell us?

    Just my 2 cents.
    What is required to make this work? Just the remote or do you need some sort of receiver? Z-Wave, ZigBee, other?

    I've got a couple of these coming that reportedly work with the Con Bee II USB stick and W.Vuyk's JowiHue plugin.

    Yes and yes.

    Not the most cost friendly, but damn reliable with a 10 year battery.

    Here is another z-wave plus remote. It uses AAA bats. I've not used it but it looks good.

    Too bad the Aeon Lans remote s not available anymore. I have one but should have bought a few more back in the day.
