Geek Grandad

I have updated my LightwaveRF Arduino library to support dimming the lights using the information on the protocol from Benjie Gillam’s blog.

I have also updated my lwid Arduino program which drives my RF 434MHz transceiver and the ORControl Java program that interfaces between OpenRemote and the transceivers.

I can now dim my lights from OpenRemote!

The LightwaveRF library still needs more work on it, particularly on the receive side.

I am not yet decoding dimmer messages from the LightwaveRF remote. I need to do that so that OpenRemote reflects changes to the level caused by using the remote control. As usual for LightwaveRF devices, I have no way of detecting manual use of the light switch on the wall.
