Description

We've a wall light in our hall whose main lightswitch is poorly placed. So, I put a smart bulb in and put a Zigbee button in a more convenient place.

However, the light is brighter than a thousand suns, so I wanted a it to come on at just under half brightness by default, with an option to turn it up to full (in case someone loses a contact, or is bored of having retinas)

The following script in HomeAssistant/Hass.io achieves that.

One of the things that an trip you up, is checking the current brightness state - it's not reported as a percentage, but as a (I assume) byte value.
