Indicator capability?


#1

It seems as if the indicator capability is not available or has been renamed. I am porting an app I wrote over from SmartThings and the preference selection shows up as empty.

input name: "switches_on", title: "Turn on indicators on switches...", type: "capability.indicator", multiple: true, required: false

Is this not supported?


#2

it's not used, not in any apps, nor in any drivers as a capability.
You can safely remove it.

Mike, I don’t want to remove it, I need to control the indicators in this app. It’s used to kill them in bedrooms at night time. Can I send the raw commands from an app in Hubitat instead?


#4

you can use custom commands in our apps to run any device method


#5

Perfect. I’ll give that a shot.


#6

Finally got back to looking at this, however there are no device commands available for controlling the indicator LED's. They exist in the preference panel.

How do I make that change, programmatically or through RM? I do not see a way to accomplish either.


#7

It's not implemented in any of our drivers or apps at this time.


#8

I’m really trying to avoid using any more custom drivers than necessary. Any chance you can update driver to add a command for it?


#9

You're the only person that's requested this, so we can look at it. It was dropped over here as there isn't a direct zigbee equal. I'll bring it up in engineering and see what the take is.

Thank you!


#11

There's a number of drivers where this needs to be added, which ones are you currently using?


#12

I would be happy to have the Generic Z-Wave Smart Dimmer (& Switch) and the GE Smart Fan Control drivers updated. Those three represent the devices in use in our bedroom where I change the indicators at night.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

For what it is worth, I add the indicator capability to all of my drivers (where applicable).

It would be handy to have in the base driver, though.
