Although both the Fan/Light and the Red Dimmer were at S2, I thought that the problem might have been that the child device for the fan’s light was no security. So I went back and did an exclude on the Front Hall switch and then an include with no security. BTW, when it did the include it already knew the DSK. Also, this time I did have the Inovelli driver for the Front Hall switch. I then tried to do an Association on Group 2 and 4 (one at a time, not both at the same time). I tried both of those with Disabling the Physical Switch both on and off. Neither one worked.
So then I thought that it wasn’t the security level but the fact I wasn’t using the Inovelli driver the first time. I then did another exclude/include round. (And BTW, this time the include did ask for the DSK). ( then tried doing an association on Group 2 and Group 4 one at a time as set forth above, but neither or those worked either.
So I still can’t figure out how to associate a Red Dimmer, LZW31-SN with just the light for an LZW36 fan/light.
I had one other thought: Maybe the issue is that I’m using the Inovelli Driver for the RD but a generic dimmer for the fan’s light. (I am using the Inovelli LZW-36 driver for the parent device). Can I change that to an Inovelli driver? If so, which one would I pick?
One final note: The reason I’m trying so hard to get the associations working is that I tried setting up Rule Machine rules like I did a number of other times where I have the Button 1 Push turn the light on to 100%, Button 1 Held just turn the light off and a Button 7 Push turn the light to 35%. While most of those rules control lights physically attached to their switch, that is not always the case. It is this one, and only this one, that is giving me strange results that sometimes turning the light off from this switch just doesn’t work. I have to turn it off from the LZW36 button then turn it on/off from that or the Red Dimmer until it starts working again. This is the only switch giving me this kind of problem.
