I have a Link Plus an two L21 switches. Both are exhibiting the same behaviour.
I set three automated actions:
1 turn lights to 50%
2 turn lights to 100%
3 turn off lights.
3 works fine. Neither of 1 nor 2 do anything.
I briefly managed to achieve what I wanted by doing
1 turn on lights
2 turn lights to 100%.
This initially set the lights to 50% at stage 1 ad then to 100% at stage 2. Then it became lights on to 100% at stage 1, and no change at stage 2.
The core issue seems to be an inability to wake the lights from an off state to a set % by dialing a % number in as part of an automation. My guess is that when I got this to work, the “on” command operated to turn the lights to a pre-existing on level, which happened to be 50%.
Is there a reliable way to wake the lights to a specified %?
Try to send lights to X% and after it turn it to on.
So revert what you done with those two stages.
Yes, that has worked (Tech Support) advises the same thing.
To clarify: Step 1 is at 7.10 and Step 2 is at 7.15. The idea is that at wake up time the lights are subdued, then at get up time they brighten to 100%.
To make this work, one sets up two automations, both times at 7.10. One turns the lights on and one sets them to 50%. The result is that they come on to 50%. The use a third automation 5 mins later to bring them up to full power.
