Larger Touch Target for Dimmer Slider

Sourced from the following post:

I recognize this isn’t a particularly “sexy” feature suggestion, but I’m bumping it and have added my vote, as I feel it would indeed improve the usability on smaller devices. Dragging the tiny dimmer slider requires pinpoint accuracy… something I don’t always have, haha.



I second this option. I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal to some, but I like the idea of a bigger slider option for dimmer features or even a slider Icon feature, so instead of taping to pull up the dimmer, you can slide you finger on the icon up or down to dim or brighten the lights.

Bumping this again with the hope of attracting some support :slight_smile:

Would love to see this implemented. Perhaps it’s doable through custom CSS…? Anyone know?


Oh Absolutely love to see this changed!!.
For all our dimmers in the house, I have 2 rules and a variable so I can adjust the lights with a variable tile by the up/down arrows or entering the value.
I can’t use that slider at all. I have about a 15% success rate with it.

Mocked-up a quick something in Photoshop, and am wondering if an arrangement like the one below might make for a more practical user experience. Thoughts?
