    Yep, switches now show using the 43 plugin. I had to delete the devices and re-import them. But now they show up with [off][on] buttons and the power button icon tracks the state (gray off; yellow on).

    Great, thanks! One of them is the desk lamp right in front of me, thus the reason I noticed it so quickly. The other two are for Christmas tree lights and a Workshop utility lamp. The latter was spec'd with an incandescent, but the installed LED turns out to be not dimmer-friendly. Thus configuring them as switches avoids problems.

    It's unfortunate the Lutron has never documented the DbXmlInfo.xml format fully.

    The upside to using them as switches is a double-tap to them acts as an On command. Where using an actual switch module doesn't. You get used to double-tapping for 'full brightness' and it's a little annoying that switches don't recognize it.
    It should be fix in ver 43

    I have several RRD-6D table dimmers. Some are setup as a dimmers. Three are setup as switches (because they control a non-dimmable load). I use these because I do need a tabletop control (not an appliance module). This is a supported use by Lutron.

    The DbXmlInfo entries for two of them are:

    Code:
    <Output Name="Chris' Desk Lamp" UUID="42035" IntegrationID="203" OutputType="INC" Wattage="0" SortOrder="1" />
    <Output Name="Bill's Desk Lamp" UUID="42014" IntegrationID="201" OutputType="NON_DIM_INC" Wattage="0" SortOrder="0" />
    When imported into HS3 the NON_DIM_INC one doesn't show up with any [off][on] buttons in the Control column. In the Advanced tab it's listed as a "LutronRA2 Basic" Device Type (string). Where as the one that works shows up as a "Lamp Module".

    I have three in my project. All use the RRD-6D table dimmer as a switch (to avoid problems with anyone accidentally trying to dim them).

    I also note the Advanced tab says these don't support status (they do).

    I'm guessing the import routine doesn't know what to do with a NON_DIM_INC?
