Thanks for your quick reply. Understandable. Looks like we are half way there! I have never written in groovy before but may give it a try. What are you guys using as your groovy IDE? I have Visual Studio Pro 2017, but don't know enough about groovy to know if VS is a good fit.
The Homeseer 200 driver built into Hubitat. Unfortunately I don't believe Hubitat has any plans to support over double tap. Personally I never used the 4 and 5 tap, but I did use triple tap before moving to HE. I can confirm that double tap now works in rule machine after the last update.
Every homeseer and every inovelli switch in my house support more than double tap. Older tech like the ge ones probably don't. But my point still stands. Why is hubitat limiting their support in such a ridiculous manner? In smartthings I was using rules on up to 4 taps on most of my switches. I want hubitat to be better than Smartthings.
So exactly TWO manufacturers out of many DOZENS...
As far as support / enhancing the driver, you already know the answer to the question, but I'll point it out just for completeness.
The Hubitat team is a small fraction of the size of the SmartThings team, and they have dozens and dozens of devices to support/make sure work. Thus they simply do not have time to put every single feature in every single in-box driver. They go for the best balance of features versus needs.
They very well may add the support to the in-box driver at some point, but I would expect it is about number 950 on the to-do list
You're portraying them as wanting to intentionally limit functionality (at least that is how I read it), when that isn't the case - it is a resourcing issue.
If your needs are different and more advanced, then you can use a user driver. That really isn't that big of a chore/sacrifice.
