Hi

I have found various guides to extended X10 codes through web searching. Can anyone tell me how to achieve a response which sets X10 light B8 in Comfort to say 10%?

Still a confused Newbie learning fast... (Comfort working well otherwise - just getting further into response programming).

Thanks

Henley

There is a Default Response 25 in the Comfort II Ultra Default Template def34.cct

X10 Extended Cmd Dim Level 32 to A1
X10 Extended 32 49
X10 A1 Extended1

The 1st action (X10 Extended 32 49) sets level 32 (approx 50%) where full brightness corresponds to 63, and the X10 entended command is 49 for Preset DIM (There is an error in the default template where this value is 48. It should be 49)

The 2nd action (X10 A1 Extended1) sets this level to A1

Note that the extended commands only work only on some advanced X10 dimmers like LD11

The full details of the extended X10 commands are in the Action Codes Reference manual http://www.cytech.biz/action_codes_reference.html

Is it possible to use a counter to hold the dim value?

I would like to use a KT03 slider to adjust the dim value.

If not .. can this be added to your enhancements backlog!?

thanks

You can use a counter response to check the value eg If counter value < 32 then do X10 dim to X%, if counyer value < 64 then etc..
That means you  can do dim commands based on the value of the counter

KT03 slider can change counter values and dtrigger counter response in Comfort
