This may have been discussed before but I have no idea what terms to search for to find it so apologies i this is a repeat question!
I have 4 Fibaro Dimmer 2s, 2 in one 4 gang switch and 2 in another 4 gang switch. Configured so that each Dimmer directly controls a set of lights and has S2 set up to trigger a Dimmer in the other switch via Zwave associations.
They’re in 2-way (i.e on/off, not momentary) switches and configured as such (Paramater 20 Switch type is set to toggle switch). The direct control of lights works perfectly.
If I turn off the lights through the app, or via google home for example, they don’t seem to sync up the status. Then, when I use one of the S2 switches to try and turn them back on I have to use the switch twice to get the desired result. It’s like the first press thinks it’s setting it to off but it’s already off, and then the second press set’s it “back” to on.
Combined with the slight delay on activating the remote Dimmers this makes for a frustrating experience, you press the switch and then wait to see if it’s going to come on or not, then potentially have to press it again.
Has anyone experienced the same and am I missing something obvious in the Zwave parameters?
Switch setup in case it makes any difference:
4 Gang 1
Switch 1 - Wired to Dimmer 1 - Controls Load 1
Switch 2 - Wired to Dimmer 2 - Controls Load 2
Switch 3 - Wired to Dimmer 1 S2 - Controls Dimmer 3 (Load 3)
Switch 4 - Wired to Dimmer 2 S2 - Controls Dimmer 4 (Load 4)
4 Gang 2
Switch 1 - Wired to Dimmer 3 - Controls Load 3
Switch 2 - Wired to Dimmer 4 - Controls Load 4
Switch 3 - Wired to Dimmer 3 S2 - Controls Dimmer 1 (Load 1)
Switch 4 - Wired to Dimmer 4 S2 - Controls Dimmer 2 (Load 2)
