I knew when I picked it up that others have had some troubles with this module, but I thought I could possibly work through the issues. I think I may have been wrong.
I’ve added it to my Vera Edge running 1.7.4969 (7.31). It pulls in a number of devices as expected. I’ve figured out and renamed the main controller, the dimmer device and the RGBW devices plus what I assume is the inputs/sensors that I’m not using. I’ve changed the device_file/device_json to the corresponding DimmableRGBLight2.
It does “work”. I also have an Aeotec RGB LED strip that I had to also change to DimmableRGBLight2 and then it works decently well with the built in UI7 color picker so that is what I am use to. With the Fibaro RGBW 2 I can adjust the RGBW with the individual devices no problem. The “dimmer device” also works. The dimmer on the “main controller” works as well. However the UI7 color picker on the main controller does not work. The color does not change using it. The box showing the current color will however eventually change to the current color based on how I have the individual RGBW devices set.
I know that I can(and am currently using) the old RGB Controller plugin to control it. I also understand that with the old “v1” of the fibaro RGBW controller that the default UI7 color picker also worked. So why is it not working with this “v2” controller?!
I could be fine with using the RGB Controller plugin except that the color wheel from it does not appear on the Vera mobile app… I’m not likely to change the colors that often, but I don’t want to HAVE to use a web browser to get to my Vera to do it.
I’ve tried a few things but I don’t want to rule anything out so if anyone has ANY ideas please let me know.
Not to derail the convo but if anyone has suggestions for other RGBW controllers I’m open to them as well. Qubino? Monoprice? etc…
EDIT* I’ve ordered the zooz controller to try. I have until the 10th of august to return the Fibaro part.
