Smartthings as primary zwave controller?
The connected bulb remote directly linked to 6 of my Hue bulbs. Immediate response for on/off/dim, and they maintain their link to the bridge, so CQC and other apps will still get their updated status (just after some seconds due to what I assume is a poll from the bridge).

No sarcasm this time. Works perfectly, but also with the direct link means there is an element of control even if the Hue bridge goes down for whatever reason.

At $30 (only $5 more than the Hue Dimmer), I will probably use these for direct light control considering they fit in a standard wall plate.

and this is a thing - if you hit the brighten button FIRST, they will turn on at their low end dim setting and go up from there. so at night you can just hit the up arrow to turn them on dim instead of blinding yourself out.

im happy with this thing.
