I just bought a couple of Zooz dimmers and scene controllers (ZEN72, ZEN32) to play around with. I'm trying to configure the Rule Machine such that holding a button on the controller will dim one of the dimmers. I've got the rule set up and it does work, but there's a problem:
The dimming speed when using the controller buttons seems tied to the ramp rate on the dimmer. When I set the ramp rate in the device's preferences to 5, it gives me a nice, slow, 5 second dim while I'm holding down the button - but then when I just press the power on button on the dimmer, it takes 5 excruciating seconds for the light to turn to full. What I'm trying to do is:
- Press once to toggle the light between 0/100% instantly.
- Hold to slowly dim the light over 5 seconds.
I can achieve #1 by setting ramp rate to 0, but if I do that then #2 instantly jumps from full to 1%. I can achieve #2 by setting ramp rate to 5, but if I do that then #1 takes 5 seconds to toggle fully on/off.
I've pored over forum posts here and I think that the ZEN72 driver is supposed to support separate values for ramp rate vs dim rate - but I've tried both the official driver and the unofficial one and neither provide this functionality.
I should add that when I use the dimmers normally - as in, using the buttons on the ZEN72 dimmers directly - the lights toggle instantly when pressed and dim slowly over ~5 seconds when held. It's only when I try to get the ZEN32 controller to mimic that functionality that this ramp rate thing seems to come into play.
Am I just missing something? Is this not a driver thing but a rule misconfiguration thing? Would appreciate any thoughts/advice/ideas. Thanks!
