(EDGE Driver-Mc): Zigbee Light Multifunction Mc

(NEW RELEASE) Version 5.0 of the Edge Driver Zigbee Light Multifunction Mc

Changes and Improvements:

  • I have merged in this Driver the three existing similar Drivers:
    • Zigbee Light Multifunction Mc
    • Zigbee Light Multifunction and Tr-Time
    • Zigbee Light Multifunction Group Mc
  • Transition Time functions for Off-On-Off, Level, Color temperature and Color changes are adjustable from preferences with times from 0 sec to 10 sec.
    • Not all zigbee light bulbs work with the Transition Time Argument. If it does not work properly or you want to use the default values of the hardware and platform, you just have to put the values = 0 sec all settings or the ones you need.
  • The configuration functions to add and delete Groups, cluster 0x0004, it works like this:
    • When we add one or more devices to a group, we can send commands directly to all the devices in the same group with a remote control, which supports this function , without having to go through the Hub.
    • I’ve added a custom capability, shown at the end, which shows the group numbers that are added to this device. You can also delete all the groups added from this capability.
    • To add new groups:
      • Open settings, preferences and in the Add Group options type the group number to add
      • Inserting Value = 0 reads all Added Groups and displays them in the custom capability and event history.
    • To Delete groups individually:
      • Open settings, preferences and in the Options Remove Group number type the group number to remove.
      • inserting value = 0 remove all groups

Since it has new layouts and features that I can’t test with my devices, if you find something that doesn’t work well, please let me know.

As the driver has a new profile and changes in preferences the update will not be done automatically .

To facilitate the update, I am going to change drivers version 4.5 to the name Zigbee Light Multifunction Mc- (OLD), Zigbee Light Multifunction and Tr-Time-(OLD) and Zigbee Light Multifunction Group Mc-(OLD)

I will publish the new version 5.0 with the original name Zigbee Light Multifunction Mc
