RGBW parameters



I find the descriptions of the parameters for the RGBW Controller to be a little confusing. I need your help to clarify, please. I use the RGBW in input/output mode, to control 3 - 4 individual (monochrome) LED strips, each channel behaving like a dimmer. I need to set the parameters right for this application. 

Parameter 1, All On/All Off: Is this relevant for my i/o-mode application? I assume 0 (inactive) is appropriate, not the default value 255 (active)?

Parameter 8, Output state change mode: Default is 0 = "mode 1", which seems appropriate in my case. Correct?

Parameter 14, Input/output configuration: This is labelled "relevant for controllers other than HC2". I have the HC2, does that mean that the configuration of the input/output settings screen overrides this parameter? Otherwise, the default value of 4369 = "RGBW toggle switch" is clearly not my choice, as i have a momentary switch with dimmer output. 


Any other parameter I should pay attention to?

I use a RGBW device exactly as you do, four monochrome LED strips.
My settings are:
1 = 255
8 = 0
14 (Parameter 14 does not exist, is not configured)

  • Thanks! For #8 and #14 you confirm what I expected. Parameter 1 is confusing; What does "all on/all off" mean? My guess would be that for an RGBW multicolor application, if you switch off one channel you switch off all. This clearly does not apply to input/output applications like ours. Is this parameter simply disabled when the controller is configured to be input/output, not RGBW?
