  • What is the correct dim statement?

    I have tried to modify this code to dim a light:

    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Office Wall Lamp", "on", 0})

    By doing this:

    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Office Wall Lamp", "dim", 60})

    But this does not seem to work. What am I missing?

    Thanks.

      Are you running HS2 or 3? For HS3, the syntax is different.

          Then the syntax should be something like:

          Code:
           hs.PluginFunction("BLRadar", "", "ControlDevice", new Object(){"Office Wall Lamp", "dim", 60})
          This is untested so you may need to adjust a bit.

            Not getting it

            This looks like a HS2 statement and it does not work.

              Where are you trying to run the script command from?

                Looks like UDMC code
                Is the lamp dimmable in HS3?

                  X10 dimmable

                  Yes it is dimmable and this is a udmc code in blradar. HS3 pro.

                  Some are X10 wall switches and some are X10 modules. And some will become Zwave modules.

                    Try this:

                    1. Turn on debug logging in BLRadar
                    2. Then run the script command in UDMC
                    3. Turn off debug logging

                    Attach the BLRadar-Detailed.log file zipped and I will take a look

                      One thing I remember is you can't dim to 0 or 99 it doesn't error it just does nothing all other dim values cause a hs capi value log entry

                        Tried checking log and got this.

                        Now I am even more confused. I turned logging on and enabled device loging.

                        Ran the test udmc and did motion in the room with and without the dim statement and got this result.

                        Now I have no idea what is going on. I even put the udmc back to just on and there still was no data in the hs log or is there a different log for BLradar?

                          Understanding code

                          This is the original code that is in the sensor for turning a light on after sunset then off after a period of time of no motion.

                          All I am trying to do is get the light to dim instead of just turning on.

                          UDMC code in BLradar:
                          ==========================================
                          blradar.PluginFunction("NewDelayedEventForNoEcho", new Object(){"Office Wall Lamp Control", "Office Wall Lampff", 5, ""})
                          dim ntime as Date = TimeValue(DateTime.Now)
                          if ntime >= TimeValue((hs.SunsetDt.AddHours(-1))) then
                          blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Office Wall Lamp", "on", 0})
                          end if
                          ==========================================

                            That is not the debug log
                            It is called BLRadar-Detailed.log and will be in your HS3 root folder
                            I need you to run the script command when debug is on and then turn it off and attach the log zipped
