Your all set now your Lutron Caseta switches can be automated with your Philips Hue Motion Sensor. NOTE*** If you have your primary accessory turn off with motion as well, you will need to set up another automation controlled by the primary to have the same lights turn off when it turns off. Also this works best when you already have a combination of Philips Hue and other accessories in the same room.
