Fibaro Dimmer2 and s2 Scene Control

Post by daveygravey » Thursday 21 June 2018 12:16

Hi all,

I have a Fibaro Dimmer 2 working well with a 2 gang momentary switch to control on/off/dim for my lights using the s1 input on the dimmer.
I would like to use the other input on the Dimmer 2 (s2) in order to control another light (not physically connected) with the other gang on the switch.

As I understand the way you can achieve this is with the use of a scene?
I have successfully got this partially working so that when I press the switch it can turn on another light switch controlled via domoticz - all good :)
But the problem I have is trying to turn this light off. The scene only appears to detect the 'on' state of the switch via s2 on the dimmer.
I have managed to get the light to turn off with a double click of the switch but I would like it to just be a single click.

Does anyone have the same problems - can you help?

Cheers in advance,
Dave

Hello,

The way I use it at my place is with a dzvents script. The script detect the "on" state of the S2 entry of the dimmer and toggle the light on or off. Depending on the type of light you are controlling, you can either test the state of the light to check if the command to send is a ON or a OFF command. Otherwise you can use the command toggleSwitch.
