Zwave universal remote

Anyone tried something like this to add on to their existing universal remote?

Or something like this? Looks like they discontinued the line

Just seems logical to have a physical remote that can sync with smartthings (like the aeon minimote but with more functionality).

I have this:

I use this to control my z-wave lights (dimmer and on/off switches).

I bought that but couldn’t get it to set up as a secondary controller. Seems like the new minimote will work as it integrates into smartthings. I returned that GE one, did you have to do anything special to get it to connect to the lights? I assume you also have the lights controlled by ST?

It is kind of a pain to get it paired and do not recall exactly what I did to get it working. I try not to make any changes with it just because of how touchy it was.
