Newbie cant get sensor to turn on Dimmer
« on: February 28, 2013, 10:48:18 am »
I have been trying for hours to do what i though would be a simple task but having difficulties.
I have a vista 15P  alarm  panel, vera3, and a GE dimmer switch working with. I have created a scene to turn on a living room light when a sensor (zone 2 Kitchen door) is tripped. Its just not happening.
I can get notifications and i can turn on and off the lights in Vera but the lights does not come on when the door opens. Pls help.

@Swalk30,

Welcome!

Both messages in the status window don't look promising?
