Hello,

I have just upgraded MLGW to BLGW and, must admit, was pleasantly surprised. The Lutron Integration Protocol is implemented much better. You finally start to enjoy using the setup :)

However there are two open questions for me (Grafik Eye QS EcoSystem + Sivoia QS shades)

1. I have assigned the control buttons of Grafik Eye as a "Button with light" and BLGW by default adds button+80 to the address parameters to get the LED status, but it does not work - status does not change. It is said that one can adjust the figure from the real log, if needed, however I do not see the LED status from the telnet messages when connected to NWK. Where to look? Or somebody knows the actual number instead of 80 already?

2. I can capture the curtain drives from BLGW, and assign it as a shade. They are displayed on the Beolink2 Shades screen, but controls do not work (nothing happens). I have tried both Serial and IntegrationID as an address, with or without ",0" parameter... What is the correct format? The captured buttons from Grafik Eye work well.

Can anybody help?

After careful examination of the Lutron Integration Protocol LED figures are found :) But the second question is still valid.

BTW. If someone form BLGW programmers is checking this topic. It would really worth to add possibility to place DIMMER device to the SHADES tab. I can assign the shade as a dimmer and control it by slider - this is wonderful experience! Much better than buttons. However now it is possible only from the LIGHTS tab. Could you please consider this add-on?

It looks like it is a BLGW code bug. I have assigned 2 shades and one of them works properly, but second one is not. I have put more details here.

 

And it looks like the SHADE resource does not receive the status of the drive with current setup (while DIMMER does)..

Hello

I am not sure a dimmer should be In the shades tab?

Shades are for curtains blinds and shades not dimmers and lights ?

When you are the end user, not an integrator, you should not know either it is "dimmer or a "shade" resource. You just use the control. What I propose is to add to user the possibility to control blinds not only by pressing buttons but using the slider too to set the desired level... on a corresponding tab. Personally, I think it is a nice feeling. Why not?

On this forum we will know that it might be not totally accurate to name the blinds control as a "dimmer", I agree.

Small bug: In the Lights tab when you turn the tablet to the landscape mode, scroll the list of dimmers and then turn it back to the portrait, the list of dimmers stays "short".

When you choose the other tab and then go to the Lights again - everything is back to normal.
