DIM level mappings
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:47:52 pm »
I have a couple ACT Homepro lamp modules and I noticed that the brightness level mappings are not ideal. For example, changing from 90% to 100% there is almost no perceptible difference. The same goes for 70% to 90%. There is a big difference in perceived levels below this however.

How can I re-map these intervals so that I have higher resolution? Is this problem likely specific to this model of controller? Can I create a mapping for each individual device or are the mappings global?

Thanks,

David

Not sure how these can be remapped. But I felt the same using my lights connected to Zwave dimmer pucks.

I made 2 new scenarios DIM+ and DIM- for those lights that I felt needed more precise dimming. then as an action to these buttons I just wrote +8 and -8.

Then again I don't have that many lights that I feel is needed to control other than basically the Livingroom Cinema lights, kitchen and hallway. So I guess if many lights in one room needs dimming then it is going to be messy with alot of buttons.
duct tape.. but well, it helped me  :)
