    Getting Lux Instead of Percentage

    Is there a way to get the lux number instead of percentage? The lux level is very large, which is good, but that means the percentage resolution is very crude. If you are dealing with lower light levels 1% difference makes a big difference. I just purchased a bunch of those HSM200 sensors but they are kind of useless with the low resolution they provide. Either they should report lux level or they should report 1 decimal point for the percentage number.

    If I remember correctly, I had to set a polling interval in zwave settings in order to get them to show as lux.

      Right, it seems when the device itself reports the value, it is in %, but if you poll for the value, it is lux. Kinda ridiculous. I would suggest disabling automatic reporting, and using this script to poll for lux:

      If you have the newer HSM200s with the screw tab, you will need to update to the latest firmware in order to disable automatic reporting.
