The manual says at the installation section:
IMPORTANT: Once power is restored to your switch, you should see the LED bar pulsing blue – this means it is looking for a hub to pair […] We recommend moving to the Pre-Programming section first to ensure your switch works properly before pairing.
The pre-programming section says if I’m using it as a dimmer I should pre-program it as such.
And again, everything up to this point suggests I should do it before pairing otherwise it won’t work properly.
I follow the instructions and program it as a dimmer using the paddle plus config button.
By the time I’m done the LED is no longer pulsing - switch is no longer in pairing mode so I have to manually start pairing mode.
As per instructions, I should hold the top of the paddle plus config key for 20 seconds or until LED flashes red. I did it and it worked however…
I’m not sure if this is also a factory reset because it did reset the switch to on/off (no longer dimmer) which makes the pre-setup pointless doesn’t it?
Also, I can always change it from dimmer to on/off and vice versa using home assistant UI so do I really need to pair it as a dimmer? If yes, how to enter pairing mode without resetting the mode?
