Correct designation for 3 way wall switch
« on: April 18, 2022, 09:20:31 AM »

This 3 way switch is definitely an older soft start type. It previously was setup and used in a macro but
somehow that programming was lost and now I am unable to find the correct X10 designation for this
switch. It will respond to unit C4 via a maxi controller command but not any of the designations I tried to use to program it into the CM15A.

Any and all suggestions gratefully accepted !

literally I have tried all the following module designations attempting to get this switch to respond:
WS467  WS4777  WS13 A-L  PLW02  PLW01   LM365   WS12A   XPD3  XPD13

Older? Before 2007 I believe.
The older ones where not Soft Start and Preset Dim.
If they turn On and Off instantly they are not Soft Start.
If they ramp On and Off slowly then they are Soft Start.

If it is a Soft Start and you have AHP.
Use the drop down list 'Lamps'. They are the ones that have Soft Start and Resume Dim.
The 'Older Lamp (Before Soft Start)' are the ones with no soft Start.
