I have a Blue Series switch connected to a dumb light and I have an automation that sets only the top LEDs to 100% when it’s on, then 5% when it’s off. This works but the switch always goes fully on (all LEDs) for 2 seconds before the bottom LEDs go to 5%.
This is the case for every switch that isn’t in Smart Bulb Mode.
Is there a way to disable this behaviour so that I don’t have to wait 2 seconds each time for the LED states to correct themselves?
For some context, I use the bottom LEDs to indicate if a separate set of smart lights are on/off which is the use case here.
The LEDs eventually do what I want, but are temporarily overridden by the default behaviour for 2 seconds.
So when the lights are all off and the switch is pressed (in my case, up single for the dumb light), all 7 LEDs will light up to 100% and then 2 seconds later the bottom LEDs will go to 5%.
I don’t have any automations that would be telling the bottom LEDs to go to 5% after 2 seconds and this is only an issue with switches that are connected to a dumb light (I have 3 of these and they all do the same thing) so it’s related to that somehow.
I’m not aware of any way to disable that currently, but I definitely get what you’re referring to (the on/off animation for the switch itself overriding for a couple seconds). Might be able to request to see if another parameter can get added as part of a future update that would make that controllable though? You would want to put that in this thread for it to get tracked.
May take a little for Erics to get back to you, I know they’re pretty heads down with shipping out the Reds and working on some of the other projects too.
So this is almost exactly what I’m looking for. I tried it but now instead of it staying on for 2 seconds, it flashes for maybe 50-100ms. This is way better but clearly there’s something else still causing it to go on for a moment.
This unfortunately doesn’t fix the problem although it does have an effect.
The issue is that if I set the default on/off level of the LEDs to 0 (or 5 in my case as I like it having a touch of light at all times), it will again flash for maybe 50-100ms to that level (0 or 5 or whatever). This is a problem when I have the bottom set of LEDs at 100% to indicate a different light is on. When the lights are all off, setting it to 0 gives the illusion that it’s no longer flashing but as soon as there’s a conflict between that (P97/P98) setting and the setting set by an automation, the flash occurs.
