In my test setup i just changed from a standard toggle switch to a momentary switch.

 

I know you are meant to be able to dim the light from the physical switch with a momentary one, but I can't for the life of me figure out how. My google-fu is failing me.

 

Can anyone assist?

 

Thanks

 

EDIT: I have set it to momentary switch mode. But when I hold the button down nothing happens.

Nevermind. I had forgotten I had disabled the dimming feature when I was testing with some non-dimmable bulbs.

@Paul1977 which exact model momentary switch/modules did you end up going with in the end if you can please mention the model number or link to it?

 

Thanks

It will be this https://www.pdl.co.nz/products/detail?CatNo=PDL381M10PML&tab-document-1=0 for the actual fit-off, as this is the one for the PDL Iconic range that we are getting. It's a rocker style spring loaded switch, but for some reason they photographed the back if it for the website!

 

They didn't have any in stock today though, so for testing I just went with a PDL 600 series one.

 

The sparky has said he will install the Aeotec gear, but won't offer support - so I'm getting them all setup in advanced, which meant I needed a momentary switch ASAP as the fit-off has come around really quickly and is only a week away.

 

I don't know if it's just me, but Home Assistant has a lot of weird bugs and isn't very intuitive... but that's another story (and probably another thread very shortly).

Thanks. That’s the same model momentary switch we have gone with.

 

I have been using Hubitat for HA controller and it’s great. If you want something very simple but reliant on an internet connection, Samsung Smarthings is also very good.

Hi there, I just noticed your thread about this and looking for a dimming and wifi dimming switch. Looking through the iconic range I see these momentary switches and push button switched. Do they have the same effect? I assume holding in the switch causes dimming to occur in some modules (I'm thinking something like the Shelly Dimmer 2 - when it has certification).

I'm not an expert, but as far as I'm aware they need to me momentary switches - at least for the Aeotec stuff I'm using.

 

With the Aeotec holding the switch does the dimming, can't speak for the Shelly.
