Hi all, I’m relatively new to the world of Vera and Z-Wave and was plugging away with very limited success until I gave Reactor a go. Ironically I had initially avoided it wanting to progress first from the basic, and now I realise its the key to elegant simplicity.
I’m wondering whether anyone has used Reactor to set lighting dimming levels across their house based on time (and/or zone lux levels once I’d mastered basic schedule based dimming).
I had always anticipated achieving a lower energy usage by, for example, having lights set to 50% in the evening and 15% in the midnight hours.
The problem I have encountered is that using
SetLoadLevelTarget I don’t seem to be able to set dimming levels on a schedule for my various dimmers (GOAP/Qubino, Aeotec Nano) without the lights coming on. I’ve searched high and low for a solution and tried
SetOnEffectLevel (also in combination with
SetOnEffect) as well as a few other things.
(I think I get 400 errors on the above with the dimmers I have.)
Surely this is possible, particularly with Reactor? Or is the required functionality device dependent and I’m stuck dimming lights after they turn on, etc?
