Hello all! I just got some Red Dimmers to use with Hubitat and Lifx smart bulbs and I’m running into problems. Hopefully y’all can help
Switch: LZW31-SN Dimming Switch
Bulbs: 6 Lifx Color 1000 Lumens
My first question is whether I need the Aoetec bypass when disabling the relay and using it with smart bulbs. In theory there’s constant power being applied to the bulbs, right? Why would I need that? There are also 6 bulbs here at 9w per bulb so my total load is 54w. According to the site I don’t need it.
If I don’t need the Aeotec device, here is my issue:
After some initial difficulty, I have the switched paired to my hub. When powered on, obviously the bulbs start blinking and flashing. I went into the Hubitat device and turned off local control, set it to smart bulb, disabled remote control, and saved(I also have questions about the enable child devices for local and remote control and their uses). I still got the blinking. Even when set to full, the bulbs blink. I disabled the relay by tapping 8 times on the configuration button and got a red light. Since I got the red light from there, it indicates the relay wasn’t turned off through the hub, right? I tried to make the switch work again and still get the blinking lights. I also noticed I get an rgb cycle on the switches led panel. I cannot find documentation on what this means. Any help would be appreciated.
