Maybe someone can enligthen my mind.
I was following a blog to use the RGBW Controller 2 for controlling water valves.
However, this blog was using RGBW Controller 1.
As far as I can see there is no possibility with Controller 2 to use it in “Input/Output” Mode and independent In/Outputs.
How is it possible with RGBW Controller 2 to turn on the outputs without a physical switch connected? The outputs seem to be related to the inputs.
Until now, I achieved the following “workaround”:
- momentary connect IN1 (using a regular cable) so IN1 has state “ON”
- Control output using dimmer item via UI (0 / 100)
Like this I try to control dimmer item using Rules to set “dimming” to 0 or 100 (On/Off).
But if I try to post 0 or 100 to dimmer item, status is reflected in UI but not “physical”. It only works by changing dimmer manually via UI.
Does someone has a better idea to achieve my goal with the valves or can tell me how to control dimmer in rules?
