Hold Button to Increment Value (LUA Script) - Universal Binary Sensor

Hi, 

 

Specific Lua question I'm hoping a more experienced member can help with. 

 

I have a 3-way momentary switch connected to a universal binary sensor which controls my Hue lights via Logic/Lua. I would like to increment the brightness of the Hue lights when the button is held down, I'm comfortable with the Hue control I just don't know how to increment the value for brightness when the button is held. I've attached a screenshot of the scene that I need to add the functionality to, the brightness value is represented by question marks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ryan

 

PS. If anyone would like to know how to trigger a Hue Scene or change the state of a Hue Group I'll post something up.

Multilevel devices, like Fibaro Dimmer 2 has folowing:

Maybe Hue lights have something similar. Unfortunately, i do not have them, so i cannot test it properly.

@ryanpenny_1, I have made some code but could not fully test it as I'm not at home. Could you test and give your feedback?

 

Thx, Rene

    @ReneNL Thanks for the code. I've tried it out but not managed to get it to function.

     

    There was an error flagged in the brackets of the last statement. I think I have corrected below.

    Please login or register to see this code.

     

    Also the log seems to lock up when running the script and I don't get any debug read-out. Reading through your code along with the Fibaro reference I noticed that Fibaro say that the Json.encode function can't be used in a scene. I wonder if this points to a potential issue?

    I'm going to spend some more time trying troubleshoot and will post back if I can pin anything down.

     

    Lua is still new to me so the help is appreciated

  • Actually, just read some more of the Fibaro reference and my comment about specific functions only working within a virtual device seems to be quite common. 

     

    Perhaps I have started on the wrong path by trying to do this as a scene rather than a virtual device?

    @ryanpenny_1, no, this should work in a scene without issues. Can you set debug = true in the beginning of the scene and post the debug messages? I'm skiing  this week so can't test code myself and have a delayed response to your posts.

     

    Rene.

    hi just found this, Im looking for a way to control my hue's with a dimmer switch. does this work so they act like a normal light with a dimmer behind them ( on/off dim up/down) .
