  1. Thanks Dman, will keep that in mind as well.
  2. Thanks so much, Cyknight. One of the culprits is a programmable keypad. Should I just toggle the top button 15x? I was looking at the filament style LED’s for the future, but those in the picture are genuine filaments. Look great but don’t give off the best light, making my above problem more noticeable.
  3. Wow, never knew about the Kill Switch, thanks, BraydonH. Will have to wait till the next instance to test it.
  4. Had some serious power outages last month with the two big northeast storms in March. Noticed something weird after the power comes back on. My dimmers do not ramp up all the way no matter how many times I flip the switch or hold down arrows/buttons (see pics). I was able to resolve using HE but it's super annoying to have to do. First time I thought it was a fluke, but it's happened 3 times. Seems like it happens when we have a power outage of more than a few minutes. Here's how I fixed it: Open switch properties in HE (note, none of the properties appear to have changed, so it took some trial and error) Go to dimmer type (drop down menu with choices: auto-detect; forward phase, reverse phase) Change type and hit set. Change type to auto-detect and hit set again. HE dialog box will say "detecting" for a few seconds Then the lights work as desired. Not sure if other switches are affected because they are all using LED bulbs. Anyone else run into this? I'd say there is a very high probability that it's something stupid I've done to cause this, as most of my C4 problems end up being the result of, but wanted to poll the audience.

    I see. So I can remove the timer and just keep the delay in there. I'll try it out tonight. Thanks!

    Here's the logic for when you press and hold...Mistake I had was having step 1 backwards. Variable should be set to True upon press. This works real well, led changes over to "ff0080", aka hot pink when you hold the button down... Now here's the logic for when you let go... So far this has worked really well. I'll report back with any problems. Sure hope this helps others out. Hit me up with any questions.

    Hey gang, got this working. Thanks again for the help. If anyone wants to see the logic just let me know and I’ll post it.

    Thanks so much. Will play with this tonight and circle back! Can't say enough how generous a group we have here! Really appreciate it.

    Hi, VINCELdUB, thanks for sticking with me on this. You are correct, I'm looking to press and hold the light switch top button for 3 seconds, then begin to ramp volume. Upon release, stop ramping volume. Once I get this programing down, I'll setup the opposite action for lowering volume with the bottom button. I loved your idea of also triggering an LED color change to confirm action. I'll play with that too once I get the basic logic right.

    OK,So far I'm unsuccessful. Here's what I did: 1. Created Boolean variable: "press and hold" 2. Created timer: "3 second press and hold"; interval = 3 seconds. - When timer expires "press and hold" variable switches to "true" 3. Programed press top button to: (i) set variable to false; (ii) start timer; (iii) delay for 3 seconds; (iv) check state of variable: if true begin ramping volume on kitchen sonos. 4. Programed top button release to: (i) check if timer is running: if not: stop ramping volume; if yes: stop timer. Any thoughts? Thanks very much in advance for your input.

    Thanks very much. Wow, more complicated than I imagined. I still have my training wheels on but just might take a crack at this.

    Thanks msgreenf. Wanted to require someone holding for a few seconds before it starts to ramp volume. This way someone can toggle light on or off without impacting volume. This programming tip would also be helpful to me elsewhere, such as programming a press and hold for a few seconds to activate room on / room off.

    Would you please give me an example of how to program a press and hold? For example: press and hold top button for 3 seconds starts volume increase. Thanks!

    Upgrading Roku

    Hi, thinking of upgrading existing Roku 2 to the Roku Ultra and had a question. Is this a simple "swap" of the old for the new, or will a programing change be needed? Existing Roku 2 responds flawlessly with C4 today. Thanks everyone.
