Edit: I could be mistaken. Does the behavior I am describing below match everyone else?
14294 dimmer Ge zwave plus; considered instant status?
Not seeing instant status to hub, only instant status to zwave associated directly controlled devices.
I just got one to test, with only a little while to actually play with it; this is what I am seeing.
Instant status when using zwave association, does not send instant status to hub.
When using it with zwave direct association, it does send instant status to the controlled devices.
So as I hold the paddle either up or down, the controlled devices dim with the switch.
However, it seems that status is only received by the hub when the paddle is let go.
Is this considered instant status?
This behavior is the same as previous generation of Ge dimmers.
Old behavior, after pressing and then letting go of the paddle, hub sees that the paddle was pushed, it then polls to get the light status.
In the thread discussion of the custom device handler I see some discussion about tweaking the delay which sounded like the delay for when the hub should poll the light dimmer for light status.
So for example, if using built in handler does not get instant status, but using custom does? If this is the case then I have something mis-configured as I get the same behavior with the custom handler as with the built-in “dimmer” handler.
