Either it's late and I'm tired, or I'm trying to do something that can't be done.
I read about others using variables to set dimmer levels, so I figured I'd do the same with shade position. I have 5 individual shade/blind devices that, among other attributes, report Position (0-100, where 0=Closed and 100=Fully Open). Since Groups don't work with blinds, I created a virtual shade called Blinds (creative, I know), figuring I'd use its Position to set the Position for the five physical blinds. The oh-so-simple RM4 logic would look something like this:
Trigger: Blinds level changes
- Set BlindLevel variable to level of Blinds
- Adjust 5 shades level to BlindLevel
- Prepare to receive appreciation from wife
Problem is, when I get to step #2, the field won't allow me to enter "%BlindLevel%". It's looking for numerical input only. Is this approach DOA?
