Toggle increase button?


(Aaron M Fisher) #1

Hey everyone,

Has anyone seen a toggle switch smartapp that allows me to press a button and have the light % increase each time? Press once and it’s 5%, a second time and it jumps to 10%.

I’m also looking at unique switches that work with conductive material.

Thanks for any assistance!

You should be able to do this with the SmartApp CoRE.

If you are talking about the physical switches being able to do this (GE Dimmer) the answer is no.

Basically the switch turns on with a button press. You can monitor in ST and send another command to change it to 10% more, but the behavior in practice is bad. I spent way too much time trying to make something like this work.

I’ll give SmartApp CoRE a shot. I am first trying to get it functioning via virtual switches and then custom build hardware buttons or using something like Flic.

Perfect. I installed the SmartApp and it is like my eyes have been opened to the light. One issue I am experiencing though is tying a virtual or physical button (single state, not on/off) to increase +10% each press.

If you post the question in the topic below someone should be able to help you.
