  1. hi TundraSonic, Sorry we did not get an inquiry from you, but are glad to respond to your question. Axxess has several devices that could be used for controlling and dimming Christmas Lights, particularly in the context of a Control4 project. The Axxess Lamp Dimmer (LD) https://www.axxind.com/smarthome/lamp-dimmer/ you mentioned can certainly be used to dim a load that is driven by line voltage (as opposed to low voltage). No pigtails required. In fact you would simply install it inline in the cord that feeds your Christmas lights with a unique crimp connection. See video on the

      Hello, thx for reaching out to me.

      The issue happened twice until yesterday afternoon. Since then it did not happen again. All I did was unplug the dimmer and hard-reboot of the controller - so far that seems to have fixed it.

      If the issue re-appears I will get back to you for an exchange unit.

      thx, kind regards


  3. You could do something similar by making a Property field that holds whatever text you want to pass, and when the Action button is pressed just grab the value in the Property field instead of expecting an argument to be passed in the tParams table. Not as elegant as it would be to have a text box in the Actions tab but there is almost always a workaround to accomplish what you want with C4 drivers.
  4. Thanks for the clarification, Ryan. My bad on that one. I edited my response to avoid confusion.
  5. The "Actions" that are referred to are the actions defined in the XML portion of the driver like so: <actions> <action> <name>Request Radio Version</name> <command>Request Radio Version</command> </action> </actions> That definition will create a button in the 'Actions' tab of your driver: When you click that action button, it will call the ExecuteCommand() function in your driver with the parameters RyanE mentioned, and that's all. Since it is an action button with no other parameters to modify, t
  6. Hello JackPan, When you execute an action that you have defined in the config/actions portion of the XML script, it will call the function ExecuteCommand( strCommand, tParams ) in your lua script. The ExecuteCommand function gives you the Command String and the Table of Parameters as arguments to the function. If your command is named "time", and your parameter is named "second", then the strCommand argument will be given the value "time", and the parameter table will have an entry with the index "second", and the element at that table index will hold the value that the user
  7. How do the Serial settings you're using in Putty compare to the settings you have configured in the Driver?
  8. The method for Dimming LEDs is different than the method used for dimming things like Incandescent light bulbs. First of all, LEDs are powered by DC voltages. Incandescent bulbs are powered by AC voltages. This fundamental difference leads to different methods for dimming. You should ask your lighting dealer what type of dimmer the light source requires, and you should ask your dimmer dealer what type of dimming method your device provides. You can get LED bulbs/light sources that will work with a dimmer designed for Incandescent bulbs, but you must know what you are looking for. Some light
  9. Hello, I am trying to insert a custom gif into the identify window in Composer. I notice that some of C4's products have these images, but instructions on how to implement this in one's own driver are nowhere to be found! Has anyone else been able to implement this? Thanks.
