  • How to use Scene 002 Key Held Down and not kill the local load?

    Hi All,

    Is there a way to utilize Scene 002 Key Held Down with a HS-WS100+ without the relay turning off the local load?

    As to why...

    I put a couple Philips Hue bulbs into a ceiling fan. The bulbs' on/off status are controlled by a HS-WS100+ switch. To dim/brighten the bulbs I'm attempting to use the JowiHue plug-in to basically mimic what a HS-WD100+ would do since I can't use a traditional dimmer with these bulbs, and I don't like the look of the Hue compatible dimmers.

    I have events setup such that...

    Scene 001 Key Held Down sets the value of a virtual device, which then triggers a recurring event every 1 second to increase bulb brightness by a certain amount.

    Scene 002 Key Held Down sets a different value for the same virtual device, which then triggers a different recurring event every 1 second to decrease bulb brightness by a certain amount.

    Releasing the switch paddle from either direction sets the virtual device to a "neutral" state, which also stops the currently running recurring event as it no longer meets its "AND IF" condition.


    The Scene 001 Key Held Down routine works beautifully. If I dim the Hue bulbs through the phone app as a starting point, then hold the up paddle on the switch it brightens as desired.

    However, the Scene 002 Key Held Down routine doesn't work. Holding the down paddle just turns off the load never allowing the recurring event to dim the bulb.

    Am I overlooking something that should be obvious, or is there no way to utilize Scene 002 Key Held Down without also turning off the local load?

    Thanks in advance for any hints.

    Log, 4th line from the bottom you see where the load is turned off...

    For anyone else looking at this I addressed the issue by connecting the light to the second Line input/output port on the switch. Nothing is connected to the load port and the switch just acts like a wireless remote switch.
