1) Give a description of the problem
Setup: I have KukuHarmony running in a Docker container and it’s communicating with my Harmony Hub. I also have KukuHarmony as both a SmartApp and Device Handler in SmartThings with my AV Receiver added as a device. Lastly, I have a physical 4 button zigbee remote and I would like one of the buttons to trigger Volume Down multiple times (ie Vol Down, Vol Down, Vol Down, Vol Down). I am using Advanced Button Controller and it’s limited to toggling a device, turning something on/off, setting brightness level for lights. The way I was able to tie the button to Volume down is I defined the on/off behavior for the AV Receiver as Volume Down. Then I used ABC to program the button to “toggle” the AV Receiver device on and off. Each press actually sends a Volume Down command
2) What is the expected behaviour?
What I would like it to do is have a single button press translate to multiple button presses. I’d like it to act as a macro or series of commands. The use case is my wife is in an adjacent room and I am watching the TV too loudly. I do not want her to have to use Alexa or voice commands to lower it. We already use the remote for setting scenes and turning on and of flights. A physical button to drop the volume 4-6 steps would be ideal.
3) What is happening/not happening?
Right now I can only get it to send a Volume Down command per button press. The receiver has a number of buttons that are not really used so I am happy to reallocate one of them to act as this custom macro button. I am not sure how to approach this either - would the piston be tied to the remote button or the KukuHarmony AVR button?
4) Post a Green Snapshot of the piston
Sorry, I don’t even know how to get started on the piston.
5) Attach logs after turning logging level to Full

Sorry, I don’t even know how to get started on the piston. I don’t have any logs!
