So far, I am loving my red series dimmers! I have only scratched the surface on advanced functionality and my brand new smart home powered by Hubitat.
There are several switches I need to make smart that don’t need dimmers. I’m not expecting much from the black series, but does pressing the config button register as a switch in Hubitat? I would love to have that button toggle my rooms lamps, while saving cash to spend on more Inovelli tech…
I came from Wink, and I’m technically minded. So in one regard, I’m LOVING the local processing, and extreme flexibility. But on the other hand, the learning curve is so steep and the UI is mediocre, that it’s been frustrating finding the time to dedicate to learning. Overall no regrets.
As a new customer, the communities & documentation (both Inovelli and Hubitat) are a bit hard to wrap my head around. Which means that they are active and flourishing, but sometimes information I find is old, fragmented, incomplete, or requires reading & digesting months of back-chats.
It’s the biggest reason I haven’t gotten my Red Switches fully configured. I understand the high level concepts of switch to switch communication and LED notification (via child switches), but haven’t worked up the nerve to set aside a couple hours and dive in. PS - if Inovelli made walkthrough videos on how to set up those two features, that would be SUPER useful.
Me too lol. I’ve had it since it pretty much came out, but switched over about a year ago to ST (I love Hubitat and bought one, just too busy to switch everything over and now with ST’s new app working well, who knows maybe I’ll stick it out).
This is good input and we’re actually in the process of trying to make things a bit more user friendly. Heck there’s sometimes I try to find something and can’t haha!
The first step was to clean up the website, which we just did with the launch of the new one late last week.
on the black series switches… is the indicator led addressable… ie… either off when the switch is on and then a custom color when off? I see red color is shown in the marketing photos… but I want an on/off switch only (no scenes needed) where I can set the color when off and then either control the color when on or have the indicator light just turn off when the switch is on.
This is a great deal, but $20 shipping to Canada? Ouch. That puts the price within $4 of buying from Amazon. Plus, depending on who you are shipping it with and what level of service, I could have to pay duty and taxes on top of the price of ordering it from Inovelli. Is there any Canadian retails that will honour the sale?
