Two RGBW controller in sync


Milan Takacs

Question

I have two RGBW controller with no switches on the IN ports.

I need them to work in sync.

 

I have tried to do it with associates, with group 2 but it was not working (from manual: “Association groups 2-10 can be triggered only from buttons connected to IN1-IN4”)

I have tried to create a linked device switch, but there was only an on/off switch and the programs. No color picker and other things.

 

What can I do?

@Milan TakacsWhat you can do is setup multiple block scenes, in order to set colors, brightness etc. for the two RGBW Controllers.

 

I don't know, if this fits your use case?

    Yes, that way it can works, but this is really multiple…

    I hope in a more simple way than creating almost 6-8 scenes per RGBW pair….

    @Milan TakacsMaybe one of the LUA artists in the Fibaro Forum can help you. 

     

    If not, look at yorkshire automation shop

    Please login or register to see this link.

    . He has Quick Apps to control 2, 3, 4, or 6 Fibaro RGBW controllers. There's only a small one time fee to pay.

    Have you tried "Add Device"  > "Other" >  "Linked Devices" and the "Switches" ??

    just tried the linked device myself and it does not have a color picker, just on empty color picker empty presets
    Only brightness and on /off  ... as mentioned in the 1st post
    ... I  believe this is a bug

    Yes.

    Tried, and that’s my problem too…

     

    You can add a QA as color controller. It is very close, but missing the white channel, the programs, and the favorite colors too….
