newbie question - multiple dimmer control

James R


This is all very new to me so I hope this isn't an unreasonable question.


I have an HC3 and three dimmers set up. I want to make S1 on a dimmer turn on the light it is attached to and I would like S2 to turn on and dim  all three. I have tried a few approaches but it leaves me with questions.


From one dimmer I can set up associations to the other two dimmers for S2 but when I push S2 the other two lights will come on and I can dim them but the light the switch is attached to does not come on. I can't see how to set the dimmer so all three come on and can be controlled. Is this possible with associations?


Alternatively I can set up a scene (enable Param 28) and get all three lights to toggle from S2 using the hub.call "toggle" command but I don't see an easy way to set up a scene to react to all button presses/holds. Is it LUA code for all possible options and how would dimming increments / decrements work? Would that be efficient?


Or am I missing something else?

  • Thanks. That is an option. I have tried it and have two observations.

    1. Sometimes Groups are slow to respond. If I have there three lights in a groups there can be quite noticeable delays between lights being turned on.

    2. If I make one of the devices a Master Device then it always controls all three lights and that switch/module lose the ability to control just that single module.


    If the Group could be defined with a Master Device using S2 to trigger then that would be good but that isn't an option.
