ZME_WALLC-S: How to start a scene (UI7)?
« on: June 06, 2015, 03:41:17 pm »
After several days trying I give up. I tried  much settings, but it seems I am unable to start a scene with the ZME_WALLC-S.
The default should be to select a scene. But no matter what scene I select (or even a mode), nothing happens.
In fact, I can't manage to start anything. Battery has already gone below 50%, that often I am playing with it.

I asked the shop where I bought it, but they said I should use it with a association. Don't know if that works, but I want it to control a scene.
I need to place it on a central place to start scenes: goto bed, all lights off, etc.

So if someone could help me out, give the correct parameters.....that would be very great. Thank you very much.

Ok tried again..no luck. I really don't understand why I am unable to start a scene.

So far I have set this:
parameter :  value
1 : 0
2 :  0
11 : 5
12 : 5
13 : 5
14 : 5

Made a scene to turn on a light, configured this to button 1. Every points out that indeed it is configured to button 1.
Also synced again, I see that as the battery percentage changes. But ....the scene is NOT started.

If I tail the log file, I even don't see something is coming in.....

Has anybody running the wallc under Vera Edge?

Hi, I have a working solution to have this WallC-S controller work in an acceptable way.

I read a lot and credits go out to some of you (Sorry I don't know whom anymore).

I Use PLEG (what else?) and have it configured as follows:
As everyone also descibees only the "LastSceneID" is changed. And that is what you should use as Property in PLEG. Then you must use 2 conditions per button (one for ON and one for OFF).
Like this:
Properties
Name   Device Name   Device Variable   Value   Last Change   Previous Change
LastScene   Schakelaar WallContr[785]   LastSceneID[urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SceneController1]   21   2016-10-21 22:20:02.641    2016-10-21 20:14:42.970
Comments: LastSceneID

As you can see I pressed button 2 on last time (21 above)

Conditions
Name   Options   Logic Expression   Value   Last True (or Last Change)   Last False (or Previous Change)
Button1On      LastScene == 11   false   2016-10-21 20:14:42.971    2016-10-21 22:20:02.643
Button1Off      LastScene == 12   false   2016-10-14 20:35:07.206    2016-10-14 20:35:07.803
Button2On      LastScene == 21   true   2016-10-21 22:20:02.644    2016-10-21 20:14:10.929
Button2Off      LastScene == 22   false   0   0
Button3On      LastScene == 31   false   2016-10-21 20:14:10.931    2016-10-21 20:14:43.076
Button3Off      LastScene == 32   false   0   0
Button4On      LastScene == 41   false   2016-10-14 20:27:22.289    2016-10-14 20:27:23.150
Button4Off      LastScene == 42   false   0   0

In the required Scene (Via VEra's interface) use 2 triggers per Scene (and button) from the device (the PLEG device) that you created above logics in:
Like:
   
PLEG WallC-Woonkamer has satisfied condition: Button2On
   
PLEG WallC-Woonkamer has satisfied condition: Button2Off

Hello Sender,
I am also struggling with this topic. 4 buttons on my WallC-S controller that I want to have set up with PLEG.

I read your post and it sound more logical than I have it set up now. :) But what I want to achieve is the following:
Button 2 (right top button) > 1 click > run scene 39 (lights on)
Button 2 (right top button) > double click > run scene 40 (lights off)

Can't get it to work with PLEG.
My parameter for button 2 is set to 4 by the way (so 12 = 4 (send scenes)). Not sure if this is correct.

Hope you can help me out?

Thanks.

If someone has successfully got the WallC-S device to trigger scene(s), can you please post some step by step instructions?
I am running Firmware 1.7.3500 and most of the instructions are related to older firmwares.
I am able to include the Switch, it is recognized, it offers the possibility to select 4 scenes but nothing works for me. Neither if I create a Trigger baes on the buttons nor if i use the LUA code snippets.
My Settings are Variable 1/2: = 0 , Variables 11 - 14: 4.

Thanks a lot in advance
Florian
