Can I Record Unison Presets Using My Light Board?

Situation

My Unison system and my lighting console have control over the same lights. I would like to set up a "look" from my lighting console and record over a preset in Unison. Is this possible? 

Description/Explanation of Issue

Perhaps. 

It is important that the Unison configuration has those zones set to "pile on" rather than "replace." By default, zones are set to "pile on." 

The CMEd, CME, or CMEi will be able to see levels set by the lighting console for these zones. Pressing "record" on a Unison button station and selecting the appropriate preset button will re-record this preset with new levels.
