Rako Lighting

This driver works with both the Bridge or the Hub.

Release History:

1.0: Initial Release of the driver.

1.01: Fixed Light/Room On/Off/Toggle commands.

AutoConfig:

This Driver pulls the configuration from the Rako Hub or Bridge and automatically configures all the commands and variables.

Once you have entered the IP Address in the driver config and selected Bridge or Hub, Select the Get Config from Rako Device option.

This will get the configuration from the Rako device.

After you have done this, you will need to load the corresponding drivers instance for each of the Room Scenes and Channels that you wish to use in the System.

These are under the Add to Existing Drivers/Rako Lighting in the Drivers tab of Add Workspace Item.

NOTE – The Bridge doesn’t offer any channel level feedback, so this is estimated within the driver and may not be 100% accurate.

Configuration:

IP Address: This is the assigned IP address which can be found on the controller under “Setup > LAN”.

Model Type: Select either Bridge or Hub

Driver Notes:

• When using the Fade Up/Fade Down commands for Blinds, issuing a stop is required to get the blind to stop.

• For Fade Up/Down on Lights, No stop is required as the driver automatically issues a stop when you release the button.
