  • WD200+ from dimmed to 100% on

    If my WD200+ switches are dimmed then turned off, I'd like a single tap up to turn it to 100% and not to the last dimmed setting.

    Is there a way to do this with settings on the switch?

    If not, I'm using HomeSeer 3. Can I do it from there?

    I use an event to do this. If central scene 1 is pressed, then the event sets the device to on.

      I use two scenes on my WD100+ . Single tap for the stairway light to 25% and double tap to 100%. Anyone visiting is happy enough with the chandelier light at 25% for going up the stairs at night - more than ample lighting.

        Oh boy, this is a good question. Was used to Insteon where they always went back to the "programmed" setting. Just starting with these z-wave switches and hope that this sort of a thing can be programmed. I'll play around with this in the coming days and report back.

          I have an event for each of my HS dimmers. I use 'had its value set to Scene 001 Key Pressed' which calls a script passing the device's id; the script either sets the light to a dimmed value or fully on depending on the time of day. If a light is already dimmed it sets it to 100%. Since I have my lights ramp up and down the script has no detectable delay.

          As Calligoo said; an event can accomplish what you're looking for.

            Take a look at the post Randy made about dimmer default levels, I’ve been using these for awhile and they work great!

              Okay, with of the suggestions here I can get pretty close if I use just one switch. Now let me throw a wrinkle in the mix.

              I have two WD200+ switches updated with the .13 firmware. They are in Association Group 2 with each other, and linked with each other.

              This results in things getting pretty wonky. Here is an example log. The last dim level was 5%, and I tap on from the off position. Local and remote ramp rate are both 1 on both switches.

              Code:

              Nov-06 21:14:42         Z-Wave         Device: Upstairs Bedroom Lights Slave Set to 99
              Nov-06 21:14:42         Z-Wave         Device: Upstairs Bedroom Lights Set to 5

              Nov-06 21:14:42         Device Control Device: Upstairs Bedroom Lights to On (99)
              Nov-06 21:14:42         Event          Event Trigger "Light Control Bedroom Lights Full On"
              Nov-06 21:14:42         Z-Wave         Device: Upstairs Bedroom Lights Scene Set to 1000
              Any suggestions?

                As others have said, you can use a Central Scene Trigger. I use default values for different times of day/night for all of my dimmers.

                For your specific requirement, the Easy Trigger plug-in will do exactly what you ask.

                  I do have an event trigger on the central scene: "Light Control Bedroom Lights Full On". However, it is different than yours.

                  I'm playing around a little bit with a trigger now that looks more like yours but haven't finished yet.
