Group addresses (GA)

On a trivum TouchPad, the dimmer object can use the following group addresses (GA):

1) GA to set on/off 1 Bit
2) GA to read status 1 Bit
3) GA to control brightness 4 Bit
4) GA to set brightness value 1 Byte
5) GA to read brightness 1 Byte

Note: You should NOT combine 3) and 4) as this is unlogic. If 3) is set then 4) will not send any brightness values.

If 4) is defined then:

  • whenever the dimmer is switched OFF it will send 1-bit 0 on address 1), but nothing on address 4)
  • if the dimmer is switched ON and the recent brightness was >= 2 then it will send the recent 8-bit brightness to 4) but nothing to 1),
i.e. no 1-bit 1 is sent in parallel, to avoid confusion by redundant data at the target dimmer actuator.
  • if the dimmer is switched ON and the recent brightness was < 2 then it will just send 1-bit 1 to 1) but nothing to 4) to avoid confusion by redundant data at the target dimmer actuator
