I’m using the NuttyTree DTH for these switches, and the groups (basically treats multiple switches like a single switch) work great as long as you are using the line-powered switch. If you use any of the add-on switches, it doesn’t support Groups or Double-Tap.
Below is a snippet of my IDE log when I ran a simple on/off command from the switch. The red box is the add-on switch and the green box is the line-powered switch, which activated the additional switches set in group 2.
This is where I get stuck / over my head. There is clearly a separate “basic report” sent when the switch behaves the way I want it to. Is this information sent from the dimmer switch? Or is it generated somehow by the DTH? It’s not clear to me what is generating the information in the log.
Lastly, is there anything to be done in a DTH that would take the information in the red box and make it look like the information in the green box? Would that actually make the add-on switches support Groups and double-tap? (again, unclear to me since it’s not obvious who’s talking to who in the log file)
I appreciate any help here.
The problem for me in reality is I have a basement stairs light that, when switched on, should turn on the other lights in the basement. There’s never a time to go down the stairs and not need the other lights on. Of course, the switch at the TOP of the stairs is the add-on, and the line-powered one is at the bottom of the stairs. So my whole reasoning behind buying these switches to support groups and double-tap for this set of lights is dead in the water… by the time you reach the line powered light at the bottom of the stairs, the other lights switches to turn on are in on the same switch plate.
