My front door outside lights are 2 ceiling can lights each with a dimmable LED light bulb installed. These lights are controlled by an INSTEON dimmer light switch. The lights are programmed to come at 50% power. When motion is detected at the front door, the lights power up to 100%. After 5 minutes, they go back down to 50%.
My Sense unit recognized the lights when they come on (50%) as “Device 5”. I can turn them on and off and watch Device 5 come and go from the Sense app. But, if Device 5 is on and the lights go up to 100% and then I turn them completely off, Device 5 still shows it’s on in the app. Or if I go from an off state to 100% power, it doesn’t recognize that as Device 5 either.
Is this expected behavior? If it is, then Sense is not useful for dimmable lights.
