Can I used fibaro:call(id, "turnOn") command to turnOn or turnOff a list of the devices without use a loop for?



                 Hi Everybody,


                 I have seen in the forum that sometime the fibaro:call(ids, "turnOn") is used to command the more than a device (with local ids = { } used how table variable). I have done a LUA scene that used this command when a list devices (previously i declared a table how list of devices) but the debugger show an error. Could you tell me if it´s possible or i must be used the loop for?

Either you use a loop like this

Or in case of switches, you can create a QA device called "switches", (see on the pic.)

In that device you can specify one master device and limitless linked devices, that will follow the master's behaviour. So if you define ex one lamp as a master, and you put 10 other lamps into the group, then when you turn ON or OFF the lamp, all the other devices in the group will be doing the same action.
