Intertechno ITDM-250 "Dimmer run" starts by itself
#1
Hi,

I'm using a lot of Intertechno Plug Switches without any problems.

Today I want to use the my new build in dimmer ITDM-250.

I have 2 problems

1.

Sometimes the "dimmer run" (LEDs runs to min and max brightness) starts by itself, when I turn on the dimmer in the Webgui or with Homebridge. This can normally only happen when doing this. (Original Manual)

Quote:Dimming with the light switch:
When switched on, the dimmer run is started by quickly switching
off and on.
By switching off and on quickly once more, dimmer run is stopped.
Now the desired brightness is ensured every time it is switched on
again.
Dimming with the transmitter:
The dimmer run is started and stopped with the “EIN” (ON) signal.
When several radio-controlled modules with the same coding are
used, synchronous dimmer run cannot be guaranteed.

This is my Config. I testet with kaku_dimmer and kaku_switch.

Code:
"Wohnzimmer_Dimmer": {
            "protocol": [ "kaku_dimmer" ],
            "id": [{
                "id": xxxxxxxxx,
                "unit": 2
            }],
            "state": "off",
            "dimlevel": 15
        }


Code:
"Wohnzimmer_Dimmer": {
                        "protocol": [ "kaku_switch" ],
                        "id": [{
                                "id": xxxxxxxxx,
                                "unit": 2
                        }],
                        "state": "on"
                },


2.

The
Code:
"dimlevel":15
is not the brightest. I send "15" but I can still go brighter with my Intertechno Remote.
But this is not a big deal. Primary I want simply turn on and off the LED light.


I hope you can help me.
Thx a lot

Greetings

Hello,
I also interested in using the itdm-250 as a switch for my LEDs but have not purchased it yet. It should run with pilight and it seems nobody used it until now. I'm not interested in the dimming function.
Has anyone installed it as an ordinary switch?
Best regards
Jan

Hi,

as I said.
It runs with pilight and the "kaku_switch" protocoll as a "normal" switch.

But sometime, the LEDs start to pulse high and low. But they do this only in 1 of 10 times switching on.
I think its because pilight sends the "on" command twice.

I dont know y this happened.

It may a side effect of the send repeat parameter pilight is using, as that parameter differs from typical values used by remote controls.
