How to show switch as light
« on: October 13, 2018, 05:24:11 pm »
Hi all,
I Just installed a  Fibaro FGS213. This device is actually a switch, but i'm using it to drive a cieling light. I should like to see it as a light and not as a switch.
Is it possibile to tweak some setting in order to acieve that?

Thx

Yes. Go into  the "Params" tab for the device and  look at "category_num" and "subcategory_num." Please let us know what values are in each field and we'll go from there.

Interesting. On my system, that shows in the interface as a light bulb. Please change the subcatergory to 1 and see what happens.  If you haven't done that before, edit the field then click somewhere else in the interface. You should see a message that the property has been changed.

Changing the subcategory changes the icon in the web gui.
Actually, subcategory = 0 show a bulb icon (but the switch does not show in the "All lights" group in the dashboard, and is listed in the "On/Off Switch" dvice view by type), changing it to 1 shows a plug switch icon.

I found this: http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Device_Categories
It look like there is only a category for Dimmable Light, but event setting category to 2, I do not get it into the right group.
