Device type? No dimmer only on/off

Okay, accidentally fried a hard drive so starting from scratch.

Using a bunch of insteon dimmers with homekit. Before my config/hard drive crashed everything worked great.

Now, I can't get insteon dimmers to be recognized as dimmers. Thought it had to do with lightbulb/switch issue but either way on the homekit side, I'm only getting on/off.

Also, only able to control through home app - not via siri.

HELP!! Miss my stable config!

Thanks,

Anthony

Re: Device type? No dimmer only on/off

So weird ...tried everything. Both light bulb and switch only gave me on/off - no dimmer control via homekit/siri or iphone.

Finally gave up. Deleted plugin. Reinstalled.

Now, as if by magic - lightbulb device type allows full dimming.

Who knows how I screwed it up but it's fixed now.

This might actually be a bug in the most recent version of Indigo. Investigating currently...

Okay, so you have it working now? If so then this isn't the same bug I just fixed. The bug was in Indigo Server (not the HK Bridge plugin) but can effect how plugins see relay/dimmer devices. If it is working now then it must have been a different issue.
