    Hi, does anyone know how to dim the display light on CBUS wall controllers. I have circa 4 of them in a bedroom / dressser and they are shining too brightly of a night. Impacting my sleep! Thanks in advance

    You need to tell us the exact type of device(s) you are talking about. You can control the brightness of most but not all devices. Post a picture if you don't know.

    For my bedroom DLT switches I use a scheduler in a NAC. This sets a lighting group (Bedroom DLT Backlight) to a brightness level at certain times of day. All the bedroom key units/DLTs have the same screen indicator and brightness setting.

    Schedule for the brightness GA:

    Other modern switch units also have a similar setting. The ancients do not.

    In the absense of being able to schedule something I guess a key on a switch could be configured to turn on/off the indicators of several switches using the same brightness GA...

    Another thought on this, if you have no way to schedule anything...

    I've not tried it, but if a PIR multi-sensor exists on your network you could get it to set its detected light level to a GA, then have the switch brightness follow that group. At night the light level would be zero, turning off the indicators/backlight.
