So I'm getting the hang of this HE environment, and I like what I have learned so far. RULE machine is pretty COOL ! Being an Insteon refugee, I see sooooo much potential for cool things here!
My system is still newly growing, the first devices added were four Shelly Dimmer-2 modules. I have them fitted into the bases of table lamps, with SPDT tiny toggle switch on each for local control and full automation available - good so far!
Recently set up a couple of slow dimming/brightening rules based on time, the trouble is, when these are supposed to dim to ZERO (off completely) they stop at 1% glowing, and never go off.
The rule is: When time is sunset -40 minutes, Fade Living Room up to 50% over 15 minutes with 1% interval.
Wait for event: Time is 2200
Fade Living Room down to 0 (ZERO) over 10 minutes with 1.0 seconds interval.
...but the dimmers never reach zero.
I also have a similar wake-up routine: fade 'Living Room' up over 10 minutes to 100%, wait till sunrise+90 minutes, then fade to 0 over 5 minutes. They still wont hit zero.
Looking at the Logs, I find this:
ERROR "Exception when sending: status code: 400, reason phrase: Bad Request. Please check your device settings."
Preceding that is:
Today I am trying something different, I have changed the device which I am calling to action in Rule Machine from "Living Room" (shows up as a 'group dimmer' in devices as a member of 'living room') to the two individual Shelly devices in the lamps themselves. All other elements of the rule remain the same. We will see what it does this time!
