Learning remote switch type - maplin/energenie/coco transmitter remote

Post by nickdiacre » Saturday 17 March 2018 21:29

Hi guys...

Apologies in advance, I am very new to Domoticz, but making good progress.

I am currently using the following

Domoticz 3.9048 [raspberry pi is running stretch] - it was just updated today.
Raspberry Pi [running Raspbian Stretch]

I have just started adding my switches etc. I found that while I could control my socket relays fine, the remote would not work when trying to "learn" the switches. [as expected by the documentation]

I was fiddling a bit, and I found the 4th button on each channel would actually trigger the learn function. So I activated some more modes in the RFXcomm settings, and I can learn all the buttons on the switch no problem!! Amazing... but... [they are mostly X10 switches, or ARC]

The learned switches have very specific types [e.g. "chime", or "alarm"] and when I go to edit the switch I am unable to change the type at all. So they stay as alarm, when I'd like them to be a light switch.

Can anyone offer me any insight as to why this might be? I am attaching some screenshots to illustrate...

Thanks in advance....
