The Philips lamps are dimmable and get warmer when dimmed more. I like the idea. With Dimmer 2, however, dimming does not work: the light keeps blinking. Using a bypass doesn’t help.
Did anyone get these things to work?
I cannot find tech specs of the lamps.
Fibaro writes that some leds nead ‘leading edge mode’: how do I set that with the Fibaro app in Homey?
I experimente in manual setting the minimal dim% en max dim%.
I tried max dimming % 99 - 80 in single steps and I tried 70%, 60% 50% 40%.
Minimal dimming up to 10%.
The leds kept blinking.
The LED can be turned on/blinking by pulse-switch and by Homey. But (other than Homey) the pulse-switch does not turn the blinking off.
I use the Warmglows (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01KHIMK2U/ right?) in 4 rooms (fixture with 4 lights in it) and the Dimmer2.
Some are connected 1-wire, some 2-wire (don’t know exactly anymore)
No problems with them.
Just click on the text and you should be able to force auto-calibration with or without Dimmer bypass. If this doesnt work you can also try and power off the mains for your Dimmer 2 as it will also auto calibrate then…
Sorry, I see now that this parameter is set to 3 by default, this means that your lights will blink, if they are set as Alarm device and they are switched ON.
Also have a look at your settings for Animation, that also can make the lights Blink
But I use the Fibaro app within the Homey, and under ‘advanced settings’ I cannot find settings for “alarm” or “animation”.
Is there a way in this app to set parameters, besides from the available options?
I suspect that the Fibaro-app in Homey does not use alle possibilities…
Somehow forced calibration does not work here. Calibration by power of and on did not work several times before, but i will try next weekend (when I have some more time to take the switch out of the wall)
See the manual at: Dimmer 2 light controller | FIBARO Manuals
all parameters are described there.
in this forum there are several descriptions on how to set “Advanced parameters” or raw-parameters.
They are settable under Device/Advanced settings/Raw Configuration Parameters.
(N.L. Apparaat/Geavanceerde instellingen/Ruwe Configuratie Parameters).
Example for a parameter setting (not yours)
I understand that I have to use the raw parameters configuration: 15, 1, 4
(parameter 15, byte 1, Setting auto OFF 4)
