Controlling RGBW via single/double switch association

Question

Hello !

I have Fibaro RGBW controller connected to LED stripe. I can't connect it directly (via wires) to a physical switch so I though about using Fibaro Single/Double switch to proxy physical buttons.

I would like to use:

- double monostable switch (S1, S2):

- Fibaro Single/Double switch

 

I would like to connect S1 and S2 to Fibaro Single/Double switch and achieve following by associating Fibaro Single/Double switch with Firbaro RGBW controller:

  - clicking S1 turns LED on

  - pressing S1 increases light brightness

  - clicking S2 turns LED off

  - pressing S2 decreases light brightness

 

Is this possible ?

How do I do this ?

 

Thanks,

  Rafal

This is very similar to a question I posed in another post (see below). As you will se, I have succeeded in doing something close to what your are suggesting, using a Fibaro Dimmer 2 (a Fibaro Switch would be equivalent) connected to a dual switch. The S2 on this switch was then associated to a (third party) 24 V dimmer for a LED strip. This worked just fine, including on/off and dimming by clicking and holding, like you suggest. I assume the Fibaro RGBW would be the same, using e.g. the W channel as your output.

 

My remaining problem is that I would like to use the RGBW to independently dim 3 or 4 different LED strips, see diagram in my post (for 2 strips). This I have not yet tested, but I think it should work.The dimmer does not "know" that the four RGBW channels are connected to 4 white strips, not to a multicolored strip. The only problem, I think, is that the template assumes that I am controlling colors, not individual lights. If I succeed in verifying this through testing, I will report back.Or maybe somebody else will do it before me?
