Enocean dimmer with switch

Hi All,

I am a user of OpenRemote for a long time and consider to use OpenHab (V3.0.1).
I have a system from Eltako with the FAM14, FUD14 (dimmer) and FMS14 (relais).

In my openremote configuration i can controle my dimmer with the

  • switch on/off command EEP F6-02-01
  • dimmer control command EEP A5-38-08

Both commands and responses are programmed into my FUD14 on the same id.

So i made a thing for my usb Enocean Gateway (is working)
Then i made a thing switching/dimmer actuator, in the model i can control the dimmer in OpenHab 3 and the dimmer is following my openremote system.

Now i made a switch point to the switching/dimmer actuator it will turn on and of the dimmer but with the dimmer value of 0 and 100%. But when i turn off and on the dimmer i don’t want to chang the dimming value. Value is in the memmory of the FUD14 and is send into the enocean system when i turn on and of the dimmer by a switch.

How can i create a thing switch (classic device) with the same id as the thing switching/dimmer actuator.
OpenHab is not allow to do that.

Or is there an other solution to control the dimmer by slider and by switch.
Sorry if i using the wrong OpenHab terms but i am a starter…

Hi @Arie ,
Try to send the command OFF instead of 0. This will
turn off the light without sending a new dimmer value.

I created a widget which I open in a popover at my floor plans. There you got a slider and a switch.

Hi Dirk,
Thanks for your answer and sorry my late response…
I made a test system with my backup Eltako modules so now i can start with testing.
I missing something, how and where can i send the ON and OFF commands?
Is this by code? For now i am using the graphic skill of Openhab 3.0.1
Can you put me in the right direction… some example?
The widget looks nice and you can see in one time what’s happing within the system.
For me it will be helpfull. I am try this to work in the thing, model and item chapters of OH.

Hi @Arie ,
You can’t send the OFF command via a switch without code behind it because the dimmer channel in openhab doesn’t accept a switch as item.

But you can start with an easy rule created in GUI like:

When Item „YourSwitch“ changed to OFF then send command OFF to item „YourDimmer“.
