@Bry I think you’re misunderstanding the request a little. (Or maybe I’m misunderstanding your reply?) I don’t want to lose “press up to turn on”. And indeed, I still want the ability to make “ON” mean a scene, not just the load on the switch. What I want to change is “press up when light is already on”. If the light is off, it should come on at the specified level (or last level, depending on your settings). If the light is already on and at less than 100% brightness, tapping up should raise it to 100%.
Also, I don’t think I fully described why I was doing the trick with the default levels and changing the behavior on tap. I have my lights change their default levels all day (and night) long. I’m already using the two default level settings of the Inovelli switches to make it so turning the light on in the morning comes on brightly; turning it in the middle of the night comes on dimly (and several levels in between). Since the “default level” is itself variable, if you want more light, it’s nice to have a quick way to get there. The lights won’t blind you when you turn them on in the middle of the night, but if you need more light, you can just tap again to get it.
I’ve used double-tap as a work around for now, but that’s not really a great long-term solution because it requires teaching every family member or visitor how to use them. A second tap is discoverable. If the light isn’t as bright as you want, people are inclined to tap again to make it brighter. And when that works, hey everyone gets what they want.
