It “seems” that if a device does not report its Wattage, the system can use the value in the variable “UserSuppliedWattage” (that you setup) instead. The system automagically is then meant to update the variable “Watts” based on whether the device load is on or off ie UserSuppliedWattage or zero is copied into Watts respectively. Or if a dimmer is in use, then UserSuppliedWattage is scaled and then copied into Watts. This doesn’t appear to work with openLuup and AltUI.
- has this ever worked?
- if so, what does the automagic calculations?
- perhaps the automagic calculations are meant to be part of the browser (seems very unlikely)?
- maybe each device’s handler/plugin manages it?
