I’m using a lot of Homeseer HS-WD200+ dimmers in my home. I also have a lot of 3-way wiring (that can dim a light from either dimmer). Now these devices (if you’ll remember my earlier posts) allow me to synch up the two dimmers’ internal states if I add both to association group #2 (aka “Companion Sync”). That meant that within Habmin, I used to add DimmerA to DimmerB’s “Companion Sync” Association Group field and vice versa. This seemed to work well.
Now I’ve moved all the configs to text files (and rebuilt the network with a new controller after a storm)… and I’m not seeing examples of association group stuff… Here’s the relevant .things section…
Thing zwave:homeseer_hswd200511_05_011:controller:node25 “Downstairs Kitchen Dimmer At Hall” (zwave:serial_zstick:controller) [ node_id=25 ]
Thing zwave:homeseer_hswd200511_05_011:controller:node26 “Downstairs Kitchen Dimmer At Stairwell” (zwave:serial_zstick:controller) [ node_id=26 ]
I’m not sure how to config the association group stuff now… I assume that when openhab starts that the values get uploaded to the dimmers and they remember them until over-written (since the dimmers seemed to stay synched even if my controller was off)… I also assume it’s necessary to add these associations to these config files and thus me currently failing to have the associations in the text config could mean that it removes the associations on openhab startup… Anyhow any context / explanations or help with my .thing config would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
