Zwave Dimmer event
« on: May 10, 2011, 02:25:34 am »
in my Home theater I have front and rear lights, now i have them both hooked up to GE Zwave dimmers
I have one dimmer at the entrance to the room and would like it if i could touch the switch and have LMCE switch the front and rear lights on dependent on time of day ETC, but for now just the basics.

I have created two events in respond to events

when device = rear lights = 1 then front lights on
when device = rear lights = 0 then front lights off
i then reload and test it out and nothing, I have a Aeon Zstick 2 and a Aeon Labs MiniMote followed the wiki on SIS/SUC

I've been trying to do the same thing for a while now.  I've determined that either that setup won't work with dimmers or triggering an event by meant of a light switch is not yet implemented.  I finally got a non-dimming switch but I havnt had time to revisit this.

either way, if you figure this out please post an update.  I gave it the better part of a weekend but was unsuccessful.

The zwave device sends event_OnOff when it detects a on/off change and event_state_changed for level changes

Code: [Select]
07      05/11/11 14:08:16.544           Received Message from 66 (Rear ceiling lights /  Theater) to -1001 (unknown / ), type 2 id 81 Event:State Changed, retry none, parameters: <0x815cdb90>
07      05/11/11 14:08:16.544             Parameter 66(State): 39 <0x815cdb90>
your device seems to remember the dim level, so you need to respond to state changed and not OnOff events..
