Bad news - The errors aren't making much sense and without the Lifx strip to test with, it would be nearly impossible to fix.

Good News - I just ordered a Lifx strip. Hopefully have time this weekend to dig into it. :grin:

Stay turned! lol

:flushed: I wasn't expecting you to buy some strips !

You'll enjoy them, these lights are bright and colorful. I think the problem is when switching from color to whites. There's something that Hubitat is doing different and it might have to do with the way they optimissed them. When controlling groups of strips, there is much less popcorning.

Thanks again for all of your great work, I love EE and would not want to go back to Motion Lighting.

Any chance you can add Shade control as one of the device types. In particular. for the built-in Genric Zigbee Shade device?

You are the man, man. :wink:

Just tested Shade control w/iBlinds and works. Open, Close and Set to Position all good! :slight_smile:

Interestingly, none of my blinds (five iBlinds and one eWand) show up as an option if I select Blinds control. Makes sense w/the eWand as it's using the built-in Generic Zigbee Shade driver. For the iBlinds I'm using Robert's V3 community iBlinds driver.

So the iBlinds driver must be presenting the blinds as shades?

The only difference between the two is that the blinds has a Tilt command. :man_shrugging:
I don't have any to test with so I just added it in.

Thank you for the debounce option. I am testing this now

So it looks like the debounce works when its triggered but when the cog becomes false the humity is less 70 it shuts of the fan. But if it drops again it re runs the off function. Can we get a debouce for the reverse :slight_smile:

Hi Bryan, have you received your Lifx strips ? :slightly_smiling_face:

Yup, Pattern Controller. :wink:

I just went back and looked at your screenshots. I can only support the built-in driver at this point. Also, the error in your log looks like it's for a HS WD200 Dimmer device, using a driver from a developer that's no longer part of this community. :man_shrugging:

You've been busy ! I installed Pattern Controller yesterday and it seems great for controlling the LED zones, good job., will make controlling the LIFX in the kids room way easier.

But I fail to see how this will fix the problem with EE controlling Lifx correctly. I updated EE but same problem is present.

The Homeseer dimmers error using CodaHQ's driver is a known issue. Unfortunately, no one (that I know of) has a complete driver for these dimmers. The Hubitat built-in driver is very basic and does not support controlling the 7 LED's. I use a lot of the annunciation features of these dimmers using the 7 colored LEDS for tasks like:

Washer, Drier, Oven, Microwave Status
Load shedding, Plant watering levels, Pool Backwash needed, Aquarium cleaning needed, Front and backdoor status, Alarm system status, Garbage and Recycling days notifications.

I do see the errors generated in the log but it does not affect the way EE controls the lights, they work fine.

Can you show me a screenshot of the errors between EE and the Lifx Strip?

I don't get an error message from what I'm seeing in the log, but when the MODE changes, the light turns on to the previous mode color (as set in EE) and then instantly changes to the proper color for the present mode. Exemple: Night mode: all LEDs are RED, Morning mode, the LEDs are supposed to be 2700K. So the light turns on RED, followed by 2700K, all at once and (it seems anyway) full power, as I'm getting a flash of light. Cool effect.... but wife is not impressed.. she's the one to gets up at night. It does the same Effect when EE turns off the LifX LED after the delay. (I remember this happening with my regular dimmers but it's been a year or more that this has not happened).

I think the LED going full power as something to do with the way EE works. I use "Dim lights after delay as warning" alot and EE is probably ramping up the lights to the programmed value and turning it off instantly to "remember the setting"

This is what I am getting from the logs:

I don't know if it's normal to see 2 changes in level within 2 seconds. Right now I'm in DAY mode and programmed Level is 35%. The log indicates 15% and then 12% ??
