I have 2 black series switches, 1 red series dimmer and 1 black series dimmer. When I look at the LED level in the “child” device, if the switch is “off”, it is showing the incorrect level vs the state that the LED is actually in. Examples below:
Switch is currently “off” - the LED level should be 10% (physically, the LED is correct). However, the level on the device configuration page for the LED shows it at 100%. I have refreshed the device status a number of times but there is no change. All my other Inovelli switches are showing the same behavior.
Is this expected? It’s almost like the status page is reading the configuration for LED level when “On”. On one of the switches, I have a rule that changes colors and levels based on triggers and there is a different thread on how this rule changes Parameter 14 (for the black dimmer) when setting the LED level. I can see the LED level of the child device change when that happens, but it appears to show the same thing when the switch is “off”.
Thanks - I’m assuming that you have different intensity when on vs off? Can you see if the child LED level changes when you turn the parent switch on/off? It does not change on my switches… I have the latest drivers for all, firmware on dimmers is 1.47 ( for both red and black), 1.11 on the black switches.
@rakeshg - Correct. I have 50% intensity when on, 10% when off. These switches are definitely off. May just be a “feature” that no one looked at before. Perhaps @EricM_Inovelli can chime in to see if this is the norm or maybe a bug.
Thanks for checking this out. I can definitely confirm that the LED level of the child device is following the setting on LED Intensity (ON) and not the actual physical state. My rule to change the LED color and level executed when a door was opened.
After the door was closed, the “Set color” command changed the parameter 14 (intensity when on) to 30 (since the parent switch was off). The LED level showed 30. I have another rule that sets the level of the LED to 50 when the parent switch is turned on and after I turned the switch on, the LED level showed 50.
@EricM_Inovelli - if that is the way it is supposed to work, I’m fine with it and will work my rules around that. Thanks…
The LED child device is intended to control color and level of the RGB bar color/brighness, not having anything to do with the dim level of the child itself. The parent level is the dim level of the physical switch.
Hmm - I think I may be missing something here. I am trying to match the “level” of the LED (child) shown on the device configuration page vs the physical state of the LED. I am not trying to set the level of the Inovelli switch (parent).
Yes - but that should be when the switch is on. When it is off, it should match parameter 15, right? So, if Param 14 = 100, and Param 15 = 10, the LED (child) level should be 100 when the switch is “on” and when “off”, it should be 10.
What is currently happening is that it shows level at 100 (parameter 14) even if the parent switch is off.
Below is an example for a black series switch where I have no rules changing the LED level.
