Hi, I have purchased a Fibaro HC2 with several devices, including Fibaro dimmers (FGD-212) and Fibaro RGBW controllers (FGRGBWM-441) for LED strips. I wish to use these in a home installation, where one of the goals is to try to achieve basic functionality via manual switches, using HC2 mainly for enabling scenes. For each of the dimmers connected to the main lighting, I intend to use two momentary switches, where one switch increases brightness and one decreases it. I understand that this can be achieved by setting parameter 20 (switch type) to 2 ("roller blind switch"). I intend to use RGBW controllers in two cases: 1) One controller driving an RGBW LED strip, with two momentary switch inputs 2) One controller driving two CCT (dual white) LED strips, with two momentary switch inputs For LED control I would like to achieve similar switch control behaviour to the dimmers: One momentary switch increases brightness of all output channels One momentary switch decreases brightness of all output channels HC2 can override current output settings to set RGBW values when a scene is activated. In this case I would like to be able to set each RGBW channel independently. For the CCT case, I would like the same behaviour, as the only difference is what the output channels represent. I am happy for the switches to control the brightness of both CCT strips together, but I would like to be able to use HC2 scenes to set the brightness of each channel independently, thus providing independent control of the white tones and strips in scenes. I have studied the manual for the RGBW controller and it's not clear to me whether it is possible to achieve what I want. The "brightness" setting seems to allow all channels to be controlled together from a momentary switch, but it doesn't look as if I can dedicate separate momentary switches to increase or decrease brightness. It is not obvious to me from the manual how the brightness setting works with a single momentary switch. Can anyone advise me whether this is possible, please? If not, can anyone suggest an similar alternative configuration that is possible? Many thanks, Jim
1182 Hello everyone, I'd like to add a dimmer on lights, that are operated with several momentary wall switches (bushbuttons). I do not really understand the wiring diagram in the user guide on fibaro.com. Do I need to install the dimmer module right at the relay in the fuse panel or is it possible to connect it at a momentary switch? The diagram shows the connection of lines to the S1 and Sx port. But WHAT lines (L, N)? Where do they go on the "other" end? Thanks for your help! Frank
