Lights: is setlevel=0 the same as turnOff command?


okidoki

Question

 

Hi,

 

in order to control the lights you can of course use the turnOn and turnOff commands. But setting the value for the lightlevel (to zero) has the same effect: 

 
example: 
 
lightlevel=0
hc.call(light[i], "setValue", lightlevel)
 
has the same effect as:   
 
hc.call(light[i],"turnOff");
 
 
If i use the light level 0 to turnoff the lamp is has the same effect as turnOff.
And off course, setting the level tot 100 has the same effect as turnOn.
 
My Question is: is it really the same for the lamp ? Or is the lamp still on if i set the level to 0?  
Has it effect on the status of the lamp? (zwave-wise?)
 
thks!

    More exactly: precise state: in HC2 (and also HC3) when you use the "Turn Off" command at a moment that the lamp is dimmed 50 %, it will be dimmed 50 % again when you use the command "Turn On" the next time. That is sometimes what you want; sometimes it is not.

    In the last case you need to use the level settings, then you can switch a light on at any level you want, not necessarily the last used level.
