keyfob and dimmer switch

Question

Hi  I have a fibaro keyfob an a Fibaro Dimmer 2 250W FGD-212

I want to make a scene so that when I press the + button, at the keyfob the light will dim up depending on how long I hold the button and then oposite way.

 

Is there anyone who has a for a solution for this issue?

 

Thank you

hi

Pressing and holding the keyfob button cannot dim/brighten the bulb however pressing and letting go can brighten/dim at a set level.

 

 local bright = tonumber(fibaro:getValue(ID,'value'))
  newbright = bright + 5
  fibaro:call(ID,'setValue',newbright)

 

assign the above to the '+' button single press command

so everytime you press the '+' button the brightness of your dimmer increases by 5 in my example.

of course substitute the ID with your device ID

 

you can do the reverse by assigning '-' button and changing the + 5 to -5 for dimming.

 

below is a video to show how to programme in LUA (just in case)

 

(Let me know how it goes i'm not at home to test it)

 

 *** EDIT - it works perfectly fine!  ***

@jgab Is it possible to do it also in your EventRunner scene?

Thanks for asking, found a bug in scripts using table references trying to code it :-) pushed a new version to github for this example to work.

It strikes me as not as "elegant" as the pure Lua version, maybe possible to capture these kind of use cases in a better syntax.

Please login or register to see this code.

However, it is easy to generalize to many keys dimming many different lights, something that one have to solve with multiple version of the Lua script above.

Please login or register to see this code.

or without the scripts and only the Lua event handlers. Then it looks bit more like the original script... but still supporting many keys and many lights.

Thanks for sharing.

It could be perfect to come with special syntax in your framework to solve it. I think it’s a very useful pattern. Thanks!

@jgabCould you please add support for following syntax:

 

define('Switches', {101, 102, 103})
rule("#CentralSceneEvent{data={deviceId=Switches}} => d=env.event.deviceID; log('Switch id=%s',d)")

 

now it's with error in function _match

 

Thanks

 

(btw. sorry - it should be in your topic EventRunner - I will add there)

hi

unfortunately you cannot code a calculation using blocks and therefore you can allocate a button that sets your light to a specific level only.

eg key 1 presss set the light to 50

key 1 2x press set light to 75

etc

Hi, i thik there is a simpler way, there is a command to stop the in or decrease... (once you start the increase, it increses till the max, so you have to stop it.)

here is a piece of the sample code i use for my smart button on the wall to turn on/of and dim my lights.

........
--start of code
if value.keyId == 1 then -- knop 1 rechts onder is aan: 
    print( "Key1: "..value.keyId, "; Attribute: "..value.keyAttribute )
    if trigger.value.keyAttribute == 'Pressed' then
        fibaro.call(lightidw, 'turnOn')
    end
    if trigger.value.keyAttribute== 'HeldDown' then
        fibaro.call(lightidw, 'startLevelIncrease')--start dimmen
    end
    if trigger.value.keyAttribute== 'Released' then --stop dimmen
        fibaro.call(lightidw, 'stopLevelChange')
    end
.......
