HiI am running the latest version of the Andriod app as well as UCM CBUS2 firmware.
The control menu functions as expected for all light dimmers but I cannot get the On/Off counters to fire without an appropriate response driving it.
The documentation suggests that I don't need to specify a response for each of the On or Off functions and it would save on a lot of program responses if I did not have to create these.As the dimmer controls work, I have to assume that these are updating the comfort counters appropriately and, as these are mapped to the CBUS groups, appropriate changes are made to the lighting levels.
This is obviously not happening with the On/Off app controls until I assign a Response to set the counter value 0 or 255 as necessary.
Am I missing something?Thanks

You will always need some kind if response to turn off , or using timers, flags or toggle to turn off any application

Thanks Toni

As the counters are mapped, I would have expected that this functionality would operate without a response as it does with dimmer control.
I will set up the relay controls with the dimmer arrangement to see if this functions as hoped.

Correct. If you mapped the Cbus On/Off devices to flags, then you would need a Response to turn on and off the flag

If you mapped to Counters then you need a Response to set the counter to 255 or 0 to turn on and off the Cbus device

mapping to flags and counters makes it easier because you can contrl teh devices by manipulating these Comfort registers instead of sending a Cbus command
