-=== Creating a dimmer switch device === +
-Next to each dimmer switch name a button ​is available to either create of delete a corresponding dimmer switch device. If the device is created, the plugin will refresh the device status according to the refresh rate setting in the configuration page. Based on this status you can trigger events in Homeseer to perform actions like switching other lights, like Z-Wave or other bridges.\\ +
-When you have enabled a dimmer switch device you will have an extra option in the configuration page of the plugin:+
-**//"​Show '​simple'​ dimmer switch values(on/​off/​dim) instead of extended status"//​** 
-With this option you can enforce limited values to be activated on the device, so you can have a easier control with events based on this device. 
-=== Changing settings === 
-You can select the group to address with the dimmer swtich and adjust the dim steps and transition time on this page. If you do not like the settings, you can use the button on this page to reset the dim steps and transition time to defaults. ​
