New here but I’m having the same issues as above. Would like to use Tradfri dimmer to dim lights with increments. Preferably by holding down the button. Now as the Advanced Button Controller doesn’t work anymore I came to this thread. But the whole Edge drivers installation is a little above my experience.
I have the following bulbs:
Data * application: 51
Edge is to replace Device Type Handlers. Not Smartapps. ABC is a custom smartapp. It dies.
Some similar functionality can be added on a device by device basis, and some custom edge drivers are doing that. Things like cycling through multiple dim levels. But there’s no universal solution. The main thing to understand is that while we as customers are allowed to run custom edge drivers on our own hub, we are not allowed to run custom smart apps there. That means you have to use a hosting service or a local server, which is way more work.
Is there something that you’re doing with ABC that SmartLighting can’t do? SmartLighting will handle button events, and it is not going away. It is being re-written, and the presumption at this point is that it will reincarnate with the same capabilities.
Can you explain where to look to get an understanding of how to install or otherwise use such an “Edge driver”? Are the screenshots of the smartthings app? How did you install the “Zooz ZEN32 Scene Controller” and it that an edge driver? So many questions.
Not the update, rather, as they have been saying for over a year, Samsung has finally turned off the hosting in the smartthings cloud for custom Groovy smart apps. So all of those smartapps no longer work. (Basically, any smartapp that you had to install yourself through the old IDE.)
Last I heard, Homeseer said they were going to work on drivers for the devices that are still being made, which would be the 200 series. I’m not sure what’s happening with the 100 series. But as far as hardware alternatives, I believe both Inovelli and Zooz have options for North America. But we should probably start a new thread for that, it would be getting pretty far off topic here to go into details.
I know DTHs are going away, but if you had a “recent” DTH for the Homeseer switches, you should be able to make automations using the 2X, 3X, etc. taps. Someone recently created a WS/WD100 Edge driver…I haven’t tried it, though.
