Basic lua programming


Question

Hello

 

I'm new at lua programming and trying to use a variable to change light on or off, from a second button. But i can't get the variable to work. What is wrong here.

Declaration

{
  conditions = { {
      id = 187,
      isTrigger = true,
      operator = "==",
      property = "state",
      type = "device",
      value = false
    } },
  operator = "all"
}

 

Actions

local Status_186 = fibaro.getValue(186"value")
 
if Status_186 == 'ON' then
fibaro.call(186'turnOff')
else
fibaro.call(186'turnOn')
end

if you dont know  what device value is, values type is, then use print and check it.

ex)

local x = fibaro.getvalue

print(x, type(x))

 

-- if  type of x is string then

if x == "abc" then  do something end

 

-- if type of x is number or boolean then

if x == 1 or x == true then  do something end

 

 

For more information,  search on google

I only get nil in return. Looks like ID186 don't return any value. It is a Dimmer 2 i'm trying to control.

end

 

If 186 is a dimmer then fibaro.getValue returns a number 0-99

And at triggers property = "value"

Super. I got it to work now. Thanks a lot! Reason i use "state" in property is becase this switch only is used to turn on and off several lights.

One new problem is a RGBW Controller 2 who's not return any value?
