Yesterday I did a clean up of my HomeGenie disabling things I thought I no longer needed. After this I tested my Panic Alarm and discovered there were a few things required that I had left out. These may have been set by default with the initial install of HomeGenie.
Besides the Demo-Toggle Door having to be enabled the Virtual Modules Demo program must also be enabled.
As well the Automation.Demo 2 "DoorSensor" need to have the options to "Use as security sensor" and "Also trigger when armed Home" checked.
The Automation.Demo 2 "DoorSensor" has to be in the closed condition prior to arming the security widget or you will need to send 2 panic calls
This is actually wrong ^. "deviceType":"light" is not a thing.
If adding that made it work, it's because when you change a command, TRIGGERcmd deletes and re-creates the Alexa smart home device. That needed to happen for the Alexa device associated with your command to have the new brightness feature.
Sorry I didn't tell you that sooner. Any newly created commands will have the new brightness and color features. Old commands just need to be changed so they get re-created. Or you can delete and re-discover them at https://alexa.amazon.com.
Also btw, only Alexa supports brightness and color so far. I'll look into Google Assistant soon.
EDIT 3/21/22: The "TRIGGERcmd Smart Home" action on Google Assistant supports color and brightness now too.
@russ thanks, I removed the deviceType from my json file and had Alexa rediscover and they do still dim. I edited my previous post.
It should be noted that using dim turns the device to that value. So if you turn a light on (100%) then say dim 20% it doesn't set the light level to 80 but instead sets the light level to 20.
At least that's the way it works for HG.
