Light transition option not working with Lutron Caseta Integration

Hi. I run Hassio 0.103.5 on Rasbperry Pi 3 with Lutron Caseta integration via Caseta Bridge Pro. I have been very impressed by the ease of integrating with the Lutron add-on and on the responsiveness of light controls.

Out of the box, the Lutron Caseta system gradually decrease the light brightness when turning a light off directly from a Lutron Caseta switch. I have been trying doing the same in my Home Assistant automations using the Transition option, whether when turning light on or off, without success. Other options like the Brightness_pct works as expected.

As anyone experienced the same and knows how to make the transition work?

noticing this same issue, any luck on your end? one hack i’m thinking about is to avoid transition and use a sequence of brightness_pct and delays.

Hi. No I never succeeded in making the Transistion option work. Let us know if you find a workable alternative.

I got an very mediocre version working using a sequence of brightness_pct actions with short delays.

I haven’t tried patching my build yet but I think this approach will probably yield the much better results (and I don’t know if I know why the diff was outright rejected since I don’t think my Lutron Caseta have a sticky brightness setting like is claimed)

Anyways, planning to dive in to the source code at some point.

Looks like it is being added:

looking forward to using this.
