Inovelli Red Series Status LED Script Update

This is a follow up to my previous article Inovelli Z-Wave Dimmer Status LED in Home Assistant. If you are interested in the basics of how to use this script to send notification light animations to your Inovelli (Red Series) Z-Wave Dimmer start there. In this article I will explain the improvements made to support all three Red Series in wall switches.

Added compatibility

Here is an example call to script.inovelli_led with the new model parameter set to dimmer (valid options are switch, dimmer, combo_light, or combo_fan). This information allows one script to support the Red Series Dimmer, the Red Series Switch, as well as the Red Series Light & Fan controller. (Note: the OZW integration does not add zwave objects, so I am passing the light object instead.)

Variables can also be defined or redefined in the sequence section as well. Here I am assigning the final values, and using those values to preform the Inovelli Math.

choose between the Z-Wave or OZW Integration

Finally, the service calls. If the entity_id begins with zwave then use the zwave.set_config_parameter service. Otherwise use the ozw.set_config_parameter service.

          parameter: '{{ parameter }}'
          value: '{{ inovelli_math }}'

Fixing reliability

I found that sending an “off” command to the service ensures the new effect is applied reliably. I did not discover this issue until I was testing these new changes and I could not figure out why nothing would happen sometimes and other times it would work just fine. As it turns out a new effect has to be assigned to the switch before it can show the previous effect again. This must have begun occuring after my switch to the OZW integration. I suppose that makes sense, OZW is storing the parameters in MQTT. Anyway, this simple change has made new effects reliable every time!
