Hey all! I’ve created an improved device handler for the Aeon Labs Aeotec Smart Dimmer 6 (based on previous work by @Robert_Vandervoort and James Pansarasa) and I figured it’s time to share it with the world. Though this happens to be my first project using SmartThings (and my first post on the forums), I’ve been developing software for nearly 10 years.
Some improvements include the ability to blink the device (with configurable duration and cycle rate), immediate on/off (instead of dimming to on or off), an improved color picker integration, and better configuration management.
On the roadmap:
- Ramp rates (a previous implementation was buggy, so the feature was redacted)
- Expose “Current Overload Protection” configuration option
This is a screenshot of the details view on Android:

Feedback on ways to improve this handler (whether it’s adding new features or fixing bugs) is always welcome.
