Any SmartLEDs that will work with C-BUS dimmers?

    In reality, this would be any LE dimmer, but I have CBUS everyone. so.

    I was looking for a 'smart' LED that would allow remote colour, but being able to handle the C-Bus dimming. I'm not looking for a smart led that has its own dimming. Of course, the colour control would do nothing unless it was powered on.

    Any thoughts from the collective on this?

    Many thanks

    I would be surprised if such a thing existed.

    It is not recommended to connect smart bulbs to a dimmer output even if it is always set to 100%.
    At least consider changing the dimmers to relay outputs.
    Myself and at least one other have had some working setups with Philips Hue bulbs and Homebridge/Homekit by creating a dummy group address in CBus and grouping that to the Hue Bulbs in Homekit.

    I haven't heard any mention but perhaps someone has a smartbulb setup for the SHAC/NAC?
