Question

Hi,

 

Im kinda new to the automation world, 

I just purchased 3 Logic Home Control Fuga ZHC5010 Light switches  and they work perfectly fine with associations.

However, I have spent a bit of time trying to get them to function in pairs . The issue is that when i use two or more switches for the same lights (dimmers) they do not trigger each switch state meaning. if the light is ON already and you click on another switch wich state is OFF. you have to click twice to turn OFF the lights "i know small problem"

 

I have tried using the Device Grouping function it works one way however when the slave is triggered it does not affect the state of the master switch.

Then i have tried to include each switch in the association this sometimes result in a feedback loop going insane. (our nightbour knocked asking if something was wrong because the entire house looked like a Christmas three.)

 

Is there any way to resolve this issue i just can't think of?
 

Thanks in advance!

 

Simon

 Hi Simon

 

One way is to make a small lua scene. When a button is pressed the scene should see if the other switch is already on and then turn them both off - and vice versa.

    Thank you, however i was hoping there would be some sort of solution via association so the buttons would work even if the HC is down.
    I would wish there was an option to change the state of a device without doing any action i.e. Turn a switch on without it performing any tasks. that would make associations significantly easier..

     

    The issue with the LUA idea is that if i have associations on two devices and the lua script then the entire house goes ballistic :(
