RGBW inputs and outputs at the same time

Hi.

 

I have been using the Fibaro RGBW module together with Vera 3 but I never did get the inputs to work. The module has 4 inputs and 4 outputs, and then one would like to be able to use the controller to control the outputs as RGBW leds and the inputs as inputs.

 

After giving up one Vera 3 I bought Home Center 2 (a bit more expensive). Now I can use the outputs and inputs in some sense. Please help me out with the questions below.

 

One can configure the module in 3 ways, as I can understand it, RGBW, RGB, and Input/Output.

 

When I conf. the module in RGBW or RGB, I get a nice controller in HC2 being able to set outputs and also being able to use the small special programs (Storm, Rainbow etc.). But I can't see any inputs.

 

When I conf. the module as Input/Output, I can use the inputs, but now the RGB output control has disappeared.

 

Why is that?

Is it possible to use the fine looking HC2 RGB controller and also use the 4 inputs at the same time?

 

Thank You all

  • Ok, I'll update my question a bit.

     

    As I can see it, it is _not_ possible to get the RGB controller in HC2 in the input/output mode. A bit sad (and strange I should say).

     

    Then I wonder, is it at all possible to use the 4 inputs at the same time as the 4 outputs?

     

    From the module manual, section IX:

     

    "What's more, in IN/OUT mode all inputs and outputs may be configured independently, e.g. I1 may be configured as 0-10V sensor input and I2-I4 may control LED strip or Halogen lamps. "

     

    So according to this, one should be able to use all inputs and outputs at the same time, for example 4 inputs connected to 4 push buttons and 4 outputs connected to 4 led stripes.

    But in HC2, in input/output mode, I can only see 4 slaves (or 5 by which the 5:th is hidden (?)).

     

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
