I have various Fibaro Dimmer 2’s and use them to control dimmable led-lights throughout the house. I used ‘association groups’ with mediocre success (i.e. often not all lights turn of). Now, I added a level of complexity by installing a Ikea Tradfri bulb on the bedside table - and I am stuck.
My goal: use a fibaro dimmer 2 - S1 or S2 switch - to switch off:
- the lamp it’s physically connect to (no issue)
- various other lamps that have fibaro dimmer 2’s (works, but unreliable through ‘association groups’)
- switch of a zigbee device (Ikea tradfri bulb)
I believe, the best solution that allows for freedom and creativty is to use the Smartthings Scenes. Hereby, I don’t mean scenes triggered by the dimmer (i.e. https://i.imgur.com/GjkwXui.png), but scenes like ‘bedtime’ or ‘leaving the house’.
I believe this boils down to the (in essence) simple question:
- How can you activate a scene with a Fibaro Dimmer 2?
Despite this seemingly simple question the answer (to me at least) didn’t seem so straight-forward. Been searching tirelessly for the last the last 1.5 days, so I’d love to hear your ideas and help keep my (and my wife’s) sanity
Many thanks for your help and ideas!
