Support for WW / RGB / RGBW / RGBWW dimmers

Post by emontnemery » Sunday 14 January 2018 12:49

I think it could be useful to add support for some additional LED dimmer types:
  • WW - (Warm white / cold white for adjustable color temperature)
  • RGB
  • RGBW - RGB + White
  • RGBWW - RGB + Warm white + Cold with (RGB + white with adjustable color temperature)
RGB / RGBW has some support already through the "unlimited lights" type, but with some limitation, mainly that set color is not remembered by Domoticz

I'm proposing to:
  • Add new switch types for GeneralSwitch: Extend _eSwitchType with WW / RGB / RGBW / RGBWW
  • Store color information in DeviceStatus table:
    • Add new column "Color"?
    • Store color information in sValue together with dimlevel?
    • Store color information in LastLevel together with dimlevel?
    • Store color information in some other, already available, column which is not used for dimmer and makes sense?
  • Add WebUI component for setting color temperature
Does this make sense? Is someone already working in this direction?
