how to setup RGBW as Sensor with Vera Light

Question

I am trying to use the RGB as a sensor for analog devices.

I have a lightlevel sensor and a wind sensor which provide a output voltage 0-10V acourding to light level or wind speed.

I found this document how to setup the RGBW with non Fibaro controller.

Please login or register to see this link.

My settings:

14 to 34952

43 to 1

Vera light shows the RGBW as a dimmer with dim level acourding to input voltage.

If I set 12V from power supply to input 1 the "dimmer" device in vera shows 100%.

If I short input 1 with GND it shows 2%.

So far so good, input voltage seems to be reported.

With no sensor attached the "dimmer" device in vera shows 100%.

I measured the voltage between GND and Input1 without sensor, it is 10V.

When I attach the sensors the voltage between GND and Input goes to 5V, although the sensor output voltage is 0V (no light or wind speed 0).

I never get voltages below 5V or above 7V.

The sensors work correctly, when not attached to the RGBW their output voltages vary with light level/wind speed between 0-10V.

Any ideas as to how configure the RGBW would be highly appreciated.

Peter

    @A.Socha Sorry for asking this again.

    10V or 100% for open input is OK, but input with light sensor attached goes to 5V!

    light Sensor output voltage is 0V (no light, darkness), when I attach the sensor to input it goes to 5V.

    The RGBW manual shows in Fig3 "IN/OUT mode settings screen" that in HC the start and end voltages can be configured. What are the parameter numbers and value ranges to do so?

    I guess this is the only thing missing in my setup with vera.

    Thank you!
