Home + Control API – Consumptions of lights

The consumption of one of my Light is 8 W (manuallly introduce in your app).
When I dimmed it in 50% for exemple the consumption is always of 8 W.
Is it possible to get the right consumption ?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hello Roland,

I did the test on my side and you seem to be right.
I forwarded your question to the developement team and I’ll tell you when I have some news.

Here is the answer from the developers :

It is impossible to know the real charge power of a light bulb directly linked to a light switch (we simulate it). An electrical outlet is able to know the charge power (watts) of a light bulb. That's why we gave the possibility for users to write manually a charge power for their bulbs in the Home + Control application. So : we calculate the consommation only if the light switch in ON or OFF, no matter if it is in dimmer mode.

So, unfortunately it is not possible to obtain 4W in order of 8W if you are at 50%. It will only be 0W (OFF) or 8W (ON).
