If any of these features are possible (with a work-around, etc), please let me know....
I'll probably eventually submit these requests to Lutron SystemSupport unless CraigW or someone grabs them first.
Previously submitted to Lutron Support/Development team:
- Ability to set the brightness of the Dimmer LED's (while the light/load is in the off-state). This feature is available via manual APM programming, but not available in the Essentials/Inclusive Software.
1. Ability to 'bind' one or more load switches together via software programming. AKA ability to activate two loads simultaneously from one dimmer/switch location. (The only way this can be done today is via a keypad scene). Binding is a fairly standard feature on other lighting systems, and Lutron Homeworks (I believe).
2. Ability to have the first press of the raise/lower toggle button on a Dimmer switch (when the light is currently off) to turn the light on to the programmed preset level (or the last/previous level, if this option is selected in programming). How many times have you reached around a dark corner to turn on a light, and your fingers hit the raise/lower button by mistake? As a result, the lights come one to 1-2% instead of the desired preset (or last/previous) level desired. With this new option, the raise/lower button would function normally after the light is on.
3. A new 'Scene' programming option - It would be nice to have a standard scene where 'ON' runs the Programmed Scene & 'OFF' un-does the Programmed Scene (reverts back to lighting levels prior to the Scene ON command). The OFF command would only work assuming no light levels had been adjusted since the ON command was initiated. How many times has a guest accidentally pressed an 'ALL ON' or 'ALL OFF' scene by mistake? With today's programming, pressing the 'All ON' button a second time does nothing (assuming it's a regular scene program and not a toggle scene/room monitor, etc). With this new option, the startled guest could simply push the button again, and 'undo' the All On or All Off command. I suppose the complexity of this request lies in the ability to keep a constant monitor of all light levels in memory, so they could be restored at any moment.
