It is taking HAL at least 5 seconds to dim a light.



NOTE: Some X-10 compatible light receivers use the Preset Dim or Extended Code methods for dimming lights. These methods have a greater range of control and allow for exact dimming of the light and don't need to be reset between dim commands. For instance, if a light is at 30% and it's told to dim to 75%, the light will go directly to the correct level of luminance, without shutting off or turning all the way on. If the light receiver you're using uses either of these methods for dimming, then specify that method in the Device Wizard screen for that device.
