Hi Lutron users. There have been some new features added to the Lutron binding recently:
- The discovery representation properties were fixed, so now Lutron things that are manually configured should be automatically ignored in the discovery inbox.
System state variable support has been added for HomeWorks QS systems. This takes the form of a new
sysvarthing, which allows system state variables to be read and set from openHAB. The sysvar thing is currently marked as experimental, because it has not been extensively tested. I would appreciate it if anyone using it could report back on their experience. I would also appreciate examples of configuration XML files from HomeWorks QS systems using state variables, so that I can hopefully update discovery to configure them automatically.
setLevel(level, fadeTime, delayTime)thing action has been added to the dimmer thing. This allows you to send a dimmer output level command with associated fade and delay times from automation rules. The fade time is the amount of time (in seconds) that the dimmer will take to transition to the new level, and the delay time is the time before it will start to transition. This can be used to create complex scene transitions, to slowly ramp lights at dusk, etc. See the README.md file for details.
There has been a change to contact closure output (CCO) configuration. The
ccomaintainedthings are now deprecated. These should be replaced in existing configurations by the
ccothing, with the
outputTypeparameter set to
"Maintained", respectively. Discovery will now do this automatically for new configurations. Functionality will be exactly the same as before. Note these are used only on HomeWorks QS and RadioRA 2 systems.
As usual, please mention here in the forum or in a github issue if you run in to any problems, or if you have devices/features for which you would like to see support added. Also, if you use a feature that is marked as “experimental” in the binding docs, please mention it here. Once I know that enough people have successfully used an experimental feature, I can remove the experimental designation.
