New user here (coming from insteon world), I’m trying to get an inovelli switch to control an inovelli bulb that is not connected to the load of the switch. Can someone help with the best way to do this including on/off/dim/brighten with minimal delay from pressing the switch?
I got the hubitat up and running with the inovelli drivers and was able to do a simple rule to turn on and off the light. Dimming seems tricky and I’m not sure the best way. The other issue I have with this though is there is substantial delay from pressing the switch to the light turning on (~1.75 seconds), even with setting all diming and ramping speeds to 0. This is really too long of a delay after pressing of the physical button (not passing the wife test)
I see there exists something called associations which I presume could meet my needs by avoiding the hub hop and rule creation?
I installed the Association Tool
and added my switch as the capability and my bulb as the destination device, but this seems to have no effect. I am expecting the bulb to turn on when I turn on the switch and brighten when I hold the on button, but neither happen. This is despite the fact I can see my association group in the “In Use By” section of the device Details for both the switch and the hub. I am also concerned by the fact I only see 5 association groups during the setup. Does this mean I can only make this work with 5 switches?
Thanks for the help, I guess first I’m looking for the best way then help with that method.
