I’m slowly building up my control and I’m now adding lighting control.
I have a dimmable light managed via VeraLite and I have bound a slider and a label to
When I start the simulator, HR seems unable to read the current settings. But if I move the slider, the lights actually change and the values shown on the U/I controls change.
But “after a while” – sometimes a few seconds, sometimes almost a minute – the slider returns to 0 and the label is cleared.
This sounds to me like a polling thing.
When I connect to the VeraLite control panel, VeraLite is set to poll the light at most once every 60 seconds.
In the scheme of things, being able to set the level from HR is good; displaying the correct value would be nice but not essential. But it is a bit odd.
Is there anywhere else I should look or anything I should change to help with this?
P.S. The U/I of the VeraLite control panel shows the level (as a %) constantly, without the problem I described I’m seeing with my HR project. I don’t know how it polls the light switch itself and if/how that’s different from what HR does.
