Connecting Lutron Smart Bridge to Eero Pro 6 using a switch

Is it possible to connect a Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge not directly to the primary Eero Pro 6, but to a multi-port switch that is connected to the primary Eero? Or alternatively, to connect the Lutron Smart Bridge to a secondary Eero that plugs into a switch, where the switch plugs into the primary Eero?  (And of course the primary Eero is plugged into the modem...)

Since Eero only has 2 Ethernet ports, one will be used for a switch to my structured wire setup, and the other is dedicated to another use.  So I can't plug the Lutron bridge directly into the primary Eero and would need to do one of the above options. 

I asked Lutron support and got the reply below. But not sure Eero even allows the network configuration Lutron says is necessary.

Anyone have experience with this setup?

From Lutron:

Thank you for contacting Lutron Technical Support. We appreciate your inquiry.  We do not recommend plugging into a switch, because ports need to be set correctly and if set wrong they could create communication paths that feed back or do not work at all. 

If you would like to try I am including our network configuration requirements. 

Listed below are some of the settings that you should verify with your ISP to ensure full communication between your network and the Caseta Smart Bridge:
-- Multicasting is enabled 
-- Access Point Isolation is disabled 
-- The following ports need to be open/accessible: 
80 (TCP), 123 (UDP), 443 (TCP), 8883 (TCP), 7443 (TCP) 
No port forwarding required. 
Local Network: 
22 (SFTP), 23 (TCP), 1900 (UDP multicast), 4548 (TCP), 5353 (UDP multicast), 8081 (TCP), 8083 (TCP)
