    Consolidated guide to basic caseta setup

    I found it useful to put all the information I use regularly on one sheet. Your comments are welcome.

    CASETA GUIDE

    COLOR CODES:
    RED = LOAD OUT
    BLACK = LINE IN
    BLUE = MECHANICAL 3-WAY (CAP)

    PAIRING
    1. AT WALL OR PLUG-IN DIMMER, PRESS OFF BUTTON UNTIL LIGHTS BLINK (~ 6 SECONDS)
    2. AT PICO(s) PRESS OFF BUTTON UNTIL LIGHTS BLINK 3 TIMES. LIMIT IS 9 PICOS/DIMMER.

    SET FAVORITE ON PICO
    1. AT DIMMER(s) RAISE/LOWER TO DESIRED LEVEL
    2. AT PICO PRESS FAVORITE BUTTON UNTIL LIGHTS ON DIMMER(s) BLINK TWICE
    3. MULTIPLE DIMMERS- STEP #2 WILL SET ALL ASSOCIATED DIMMERS TO CURRENT LEVEL

    SET FAVORITE ON DIMMER, ALL TYPES
    1. AT DIMMER RAISE/LOWER TO DESIRED LEVEL
    2. PRESS FAVORITE BUTTON UNTIL LIGHTS ON DIMMER BLINK TWICE

    CHANGE PHASE OF ELV+ DIMMER
    DIMMER OFTEN COMES REVERSE PHASE(ELV). TO SWITCH BETWEEN FORWARD AND REVERSE PHASE:
    1. CYCLE DIMMER- PULL OUT THEN PUSH IN SERVICE SWITCH AT BOTTOM OF DIMMER
    2. HOLD DOWN ON AND OFF BUTTONS UNTIL A TOP OR BOTTOM STATUS LIGHT BLINKS (~ 6 SECONDS)
    3. TOP BLINK=FORWARD PHASE (MLV, INCAN.) BOTTOM BLINK=REVERSE PHASE (ELV)
    4. PRESS FAVORITE BUTTON TO TOGGLE BETWEEN FORWARD AND REVERSE PHASE
    5. SAVE BY PRESSING BOTTOM/OFF BUTTON UNTIL BLINK STOPS (~ 6 SECONDS)
    6. SOMETIMES DIMMER WILL LOCK ON FULL. USUALLY A REPEAT OF STEP #1 WILL SOLVE THIS

    ADJUSTING LOW END TRIM
    1. PRESS ON AND LOWER UNTIL STATUS LIGHT IS FLASHING(~ 6 SECONDS)
    2. RAISE AND LOWER TO DESIRED LEVEL
    3. PRESS OFF UNTIL STATUS LIGHT STOPS FLASHING

    ADJUSTING HIGH END TRIM
    1. PRESS ON AND RAISE UNTIL STATUS LIGHT IS FLASHING(~ 6 SECONDS)
    2. RAISE AND LOWER TO DESIRED LEVEL
    3. PRESS OFF UNTIL STATUS LIGHT STOPS FLASHING

    Excellent list! I've just done a few installs with the new ELV dimmer, and found the error lights flashing (top and middle led's) for a few reasons:
    1. Phase direction incorrect (as per above)
    2. Line and load connections switched
    3. Too high a load (in my case I tried to install this with a total of 12 50W MLV driven halogens). The ELV+ dimmer has a substantially lower load limit for these compared to the Pro dimmer.

    One more thing. Sometimes, the ELV+ dimmer gets stuck on full with status lights flashing, no matter what phasing you set it to. This can be fixed by resetting the dimmer by doing the following:

    1. TOP THE ON BUTTON THREE TIMES HOLDING THE THIRD TAP ON
    2. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE ON BUTTON UNTIL THE LIGHT AND OR STATUS LIGHTS FLASH QUICKLY
    3.RELEASE THE BUTTON AND THEN IMMEDIATELY TAP THE ON BUTTON THREE MORE TIMES.

    This factory resets the dimmer, removes all pairings, etc. and solves the stuck on issue.
