2016 Dim with me?


#1

I want to update the “how to group lights” article in the wiki for dimmers.

What’s the simplest method people are now using to have one dimmer follow another? I don’t want to recommend rule machine or CoRE or anything that complicated for this article. Just a really basic A follows B Method.

Thanks! :sunglasses:

@slagle

Is there an officially-recommended replacement for shortcut groups that will set one dimmer to follow another?

Are you referring to “Lights & Switches”?


#4

Yes. But really anything simple where one dimmer can be set to follow another. Smart lighting will turn on at a prespecified dim level, but it won’t change dimmer B to match as Dimmer A changes to a different level.

Nothing “official” right now. :disappointed:

OK, thanks.
