3-gang lightswitch child switches not accessible

Hi All,

I couple of days back all of my 3 gang zigbee light switches stopped working.
I then realized that Web UI has been updated and now relies on drivers for handling devices.
I managed to get the invite links for all my switches and proceeded to install them all using the provided drivers.
The problem is that I’m only able to control the “main” switch though the app, the child switches (switch2 and switch3) do not show up in the app at all but I can control them through the advanced Web UI.
There does not seem to be many options to configure anything with these child switches?

With the stock driver the 2nd and 3 gangs only show up on the detail page of the main switch.

If you want seperate child device tiles you will need to switch to a community developed Edge Drive with that has that function.

The “zigbee Multi switch and child mc” Edge Driver might work.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the info.
Unfortunately these switches do not seem to accept community drivers.

However, It seems I may have found a work around as the child switches seem to show up in routines.
I’m going to create a virtual switch that activates a routine to switch the child switch.
Will give it a go once I’m home again and post an update.

That error means that @Mariano_Colmenarejo needs to add the fingerprints to his driver. Post the fingerprints. He is usually very good about helping.

Virtual switches are a good work around, until you get a better solution.

Hello, what does fingerprints mean? I found this thread because i was facing the exact same issue. thanks in advance!

Fingerprints are the Model and Manufacturer’s Code for Z-Wave and ZigBee devices.

You can find it in the Advanced Users section of My.SmartThings.com or the API Browser+.

Thank you for answering. So if i have found the model and manufacturer code for my aqara zigbee device, how do i get @Mariano_Colmenarejo to add the fingerprints to his driver?

This might help. It explains about fingerprints and a lot more information You might need about the new architecture. The discussion of fingerprints is in section 8.

FAQ: I have no idea what Edge is. Is that a new developer tool? (2022)

Post the fingerprints with his tag and ask him if he can add them. Note, they many not work with his driver. He is very helpful.
