New update to MLLighting family released today.

A new variable is now created that identifies whether a light or ceiling fan is on in any given room - see MLLighting Wiki for more details

ie: mllighting_room_kitchen_status = On

This will allow users to quickly jump to any room with a light on at a glance.

Hey Mario; Works great. Also as I noted prior - links are also working with the exception of a Super Toggler, which always shows 54% when turned on. All standard links are working fine.
Thanks!

New Updates just posted to the UPB controller that should finally put to rest some of the importing issues of the UPE files.

Also another small bug fix. See release notes at the top of this thread.

Re: UPB Release Notes

Postby DaveB » Sat Nov 07, 2009 10:32 am

Guys;
There is a ton of stuff that could be added to MLLighting, but here are a few notes of the items that are at the top of my list;

1. Straighten out the forum - make a MLLighting area and move the individual plugin threads under this area (insteon, Upb..). Actually, I would re-arrange more than that like making an energy header and include climate, lighting and energy modules under that header.
2. Expand the group commands to include group dimming and brighten. On /Off works great currently
3. Allow group numbers to be set rather than some random number like current. I still can not figure out the logic of how the numbers are currently generated.
4. Fix the editor so that ramp and pre-set dim settings stick to the group. Currently you set them and they go away.

That is all for now. There are many more items, but this would be a great start.
Thanks!
