A dim/brighten enhancement with Alex10 (22.214.171.124)
With HA-Bridge 4.3.0 it allows Alex10 to more accurately handle Softstart type lights which will turn on to previous Bright levels. This should also allow Alex10 to more accurately calculate what dim/bright command to send x10 Softstart modules based on the values the bridge is reporting.
In order to use this, a new option will appear in Alex10 beside the "is dimmable"
check box when you add devices.
This new option is a check box called "is Softstart"
if this is checked when you turn off a device that has been dimmed the dim value will remain.
If you leave it unchecked when you turn off a device the dim value will be set to zero.
If your devices are all softstart you don't need to edit them or redo them
How ever if they're not you will have to change them in Alex10 or the bridge
This can be changed for non softstart devices in the bridge the following way:
To do this open the bridge in the device screen click on edit for the device you wish to modify
in the edit window scroll down to "Off State Resets Bri" and check the box that says false (that will change to true)
Scroll back to the top of the page and click Update Bridge Device
To change in Alex10 you'll need to delete the device then re-add it so I believe it to be easier the bridge method. Remember there is no need to do anything for existing configured devices which are Softstart!
Note: With any changes you need to have Alexa rediscover devices to ensure nothing is lost.
