Light dimmer commands


I have installed a Shelly dimmer 2 in my system. All of the home automation is managed via home assistant. Can mycroft set the light intensity? All I manged is to turn it on or off, but can’t figure out how to set the light intensity…

Thank you for your thoughts.

The homeassistant-skill has „light brightness“ intent.
Try „set brightness of bedroom to 50 percent“.

I have tried that, but all I get is “I don’t know what that means”.

Are you able to turn the same shelly device on / off via mycroft? I had a (maybe) similar issue where I had two lights that were in a group. Mycroft would turn them on / off but I could not control the diming. After digging into it I realized that they were being controlled by the “group” in HA, and for some reason that “group” did not permit me to dim the entities. I removed the group that I had previously configured in my configuration.yaml file then grouped them directly in HA and now I can control the dimming. Not sure if this is a similar issue but make sure you can turn them on/off via mycroft to ensure the HA skill is working as expected.

I just added it yesterday, so it shouldn’t be in any group. I can turn it on and off with mycroft, it just doesn’t want to set the brightness. I can control the level in HASS though.
