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?

I'm surprised no one does care about this. Maybe people just doesn't noticed that they need this. At this moment there is no way in Domoticz to properly control our RGBW devices (like Yeelight RGBW bulbs).
