  • Using a zwave dimmer switch with LIFX bulbs

    First off thanks for creating the plugin. Trying to setup some LIFX bulbs in various places. Id like to use the a dimmer like the HS-WD200+ to set the dim level of a bank of 4 LIFX bulbs. How can I read the dim level off that switch and set the bulbs based on it?

    Probably simple but I cant determine how to do it simply.

    Thanks,

    I am using the zrc-90 and would be great to set up dimming while a button is being held and stop at a point when the button is released. Is this possible?
    Thanks

      I asked HS about this...you need a separate event/rule for every level
      4 light levels = 8 events (up and down)
      10 light levels (for smooth operation) 20 events.
      I have 26 groups of lights. 520 rules. lol. so not happening.

      However, when you *link* (not event) a HS-WDx00 dimmer to a NANODIMMER
      HS has the nanodimmer follow the wall dimmer nicely.

      If they'd do that for Lifx, we'd have a winner.
      Ultrajones seems to have disappeared.

        Could you please give an example on how what would look like having separate events? Only have one group of lights to work on so it's fine for me. As a test tried creating 4 events going from 10% to 40%. Each started if device was equal to Holding button X down then ending with run another the next brightness event. Even if I let go of the button at 20% still goes all the way to 40.
        Prob with what I was trying to do, it will always start at 10%....not increasing brightness from current setting.
        Thanks
