On the website I see that the VMBDME can be controlled via the PC.
However when I compare the actions in elbuslink I don’t see the same amount of actions as I see for the VMBDMI.
I am looking for the “dim at long press; on or off at short press” action.
How can I set this with the software?
You are correct, the VMBDMI has a lot more possible actions than the VMBDME
This is not stated on your website. I just bought and installed 12 VMBDME modules.
Isn’t the action I need possible with the VMBDME?
If you have the VMBDME modules in front of you you will see four rotary switches. The two on the left are used to set the address of the module, the two on the right set a special function.
You will need to set the two switches on the right to:
When creating an action (linking a button to the dimmer), select the action ‘Execute action set by hardware’.
This should have the same effect as “Dim at long press; on or off at short press”
OK, and how can I achieve this for buttons connected to an input device such as the VMB6PBN? I pressume this is the linking part you are mentioning.
What if I want2 different buttons to perform 2 different actions? Is this possible too?
For buttons connected to a button module?
Sorry I had pressed send too soon. I meant to ask:

No that is not possible, since you set the special function on the hardware itself
But, of course, you can still select the other actions: toggle, on, off, …
Yes this answers part of my question. But what if I want one button to dim to a specific level (as part of an atmosphere) and another button to do the “dim at long press, on/off at short press”
Can this be achieved too?
Yes no problem, the first action will be “Execute action set by hardware”, the second action will be “Dim to n percent”
In that case I will have to contact your sales department.
This is not stated on your website. In that case I will need to exchange my modules for the VMBDMI
The only thing you can’t have is two different types of “Execute action set by hardware”
OK to get it clear.
I can do the actions as seen in the software.
But if i need more than one button to control more advanced functions such as timers etc I will not be able to achieve this with the VMBDME.
