  • Major issue - no status match between HS3 devices and real lights

    BLRadioRA does not analyze all of the feedback provided by RadioRA that leads to lack of parity (match) between real lights and corresponding HS3 devices.

    Let's start with what BLRAdioRA does correctly. It does recognize this kind of feedback
    LZC,14,ON,S2
    It indicates that RadioRA switch(or dimmer) was manually activated. In the above example zone 14 of system 2 was turned ON manually (from the wall switch, not by HS3). In this case BLRadioRA does analyze this input and properly turns ON the corresponding HS3 device.


    The problem is that lights are manually activated NOT only by pressing individual wall switches (dimmers) but also by pressing master controls for activating scenes. This is actually more widely used mode than the individual controls (at least this is the case in my home). In this case BLRadioRA completely misses the action. It does receive it but it doesn't analyze the feedback provided by RadioRA. As a result HS3 RadioRA devices show ON when they are actually OFF and vice versa.

    The feedback that BLRAdioRA does NOT analyze is of this format

    ZMP,00000000000001000000000000000X00,S2
    it has 32 characters of information one character for each zone

    where 0 means OFF, 1 means ON and X means zone is unassigned. S1 or S2 at the end mean System1 and System 2 respectively.

    RadioRA does send this feedback each and every time a button is pressed.

    BLRadioRA must analyze the ZMP feedback and adjust HS3 devices accordingly so that there is a parity between real lights and HS3 devices.

    Radio RA does send out ZMP reports for both systems S1 and S2 each and every time any button, switch, dimmer or scene control is pressed. So ZMP is omnipotent and can easily be the only feedback that BLRAdioRA needs to analyze.

    Below is a sample log showing manual operation of individual wall dimmer ( LZC feedback) and manual operation with master control (MBP feedback) In both cases full report ( ZMP) follows giving a feedback of the actual status of all zones.
