20220510 [STABLE]

This is a major update. An summary of major improvements are below.

Please note, this release does not include the major updates which target the new Control4 OS (Dealers with beta access should contact us directly).

New Features:

  • Support for Lighting Load Groups to allow grouping of lights. Lights can now be used in combination with Control4's Dimmer Load Group Driver to control groups of multiple lights, including drivers from other brands (All Lights)

  • Fix Crash when Authentication is incorrect (ShellyNG) - Thanks H. Schwieren

  • Do not override all actions. Only update module actions which are required for driver operation. Allows unhandled events to be set by installers. As a side effect, this improves performance of the driver and reduces some traffic (Module). This is required for some TRV operations -- Thanks Keith Harrison

  • TRV requires special actions URL to apply actions (Module) -- Thanks Keith Harrison

  • External Temperatures on Shelly cause Lua error.. Fixed (Module) -- Thanks David Hancock And Raphael Eggenberger

  • Disable Effects when switching Levels (All Lights,Module)

  • Fix Incorrect renaming of Thermostat driver if auto-rename is disabled to unbound (Thermostat)

  • Fix Incorrect naming of Temperature Display Drivers if Auto-rename disabled (Module)

  • Fix issues affecting future Control4 OS Versions (All)

  • Fix Missing stopped state On Blinds driver (Blinds)

  • Modify Shelly Cloud Web link to updated portal address (Cloud)

  • Fix Button click not cancelling timers in some cases - Thanks Jessica @ Tekmodo (Lights)

  • Authentication must be Disabled On Shelly NG (Gen 2) Modules currently. Shelly (Gen 1) Modules however support authentication correctly.

20220224 [STABLE]

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A Project Backup is recommended before installing. Downgrading from this version may not operate correctly with existing Lighting Scenes.
  • Auto-Rename is turned off by default on existing driver installations due to changes in the auto-renaming mechanism which may impact driver naming differently to previous versions (channel names are now utilised).
  • Ensure all updates from the package are installed and updated.

This is a MAJOR new Release which adds some huge new improvements including:

  1. New Thermostat Driver (TRV Radiator Valve support).
    • This Driver adds support for Shelly's new TRV Radiator Valves
    • Support for Position/Level Control, and Automatic Temperature holds (please note, Shelly's native Web interface may require a refresh to show the switch between levels and temperature control. In Control4 however, our driver will display this switch accurately and automatically)
    • Calibration support (if required)
    • Schedule / Preset Support.
  2. Fine grained control over Auto-Renaming.
    • Channel names are now utilised where possible
    • Customise whether (selected) 3rd party drivers are also renamed (Temperature Displays primarily)
    • Customise driver name source: Module Only, Cloud, or both.
    • Greater level of naming control in connected shelly submodules
    • Auto-naming works more predictably. However, all name changes should now be reflected instantly (Shelly NG, module only), or within 1 minute (others)
  3. Scene Ramping support
    • Control Dimming via connection for multiple lights via Advanced Lighting simultaneously
  4. Performance should be improved when using Cloud driver (mainly affects large systems)
    • Communications have been improved between modules to prevent more redundant communications
  5. Ability to set Poll Rate on Module driver
    • By default, Module normally polls every 250ms. The default is now 500ms to enhance compatibility with smaller overloaded systems. CA-10's or systems with more grunt (or small systems with less modules) can ramp this up to higher speeds for greater responsiveness
    • Please note, this does NOT affect Shelly NG Drivers (Shelly NG utilises communication mechanism which is instantaneous)
  6. Preparation of the Lighting drivers for potential future hardware
  7. Updated Documentation
  8. Improved Blind/Curtain Performance

A full list of enhancements can be seen in the Beta's changelogs below.
