Aeon Labs DSC26103-ZWUS - Z-Wave In-Wall Micro Controller not polling

All my lights are controlled by Aeon Labs DSC26103-ZWUS - Z-Wave In-Wall Micro Controller. About eight months ago I switched over from veralite. The controllers have an inherent problem with polling status. With Vera I could go into the parameters and set it so it would poll immediately. I’m having the same issue with SmartThings. Right now I am using Pollster every 15 minutes to poll status.

I’m wondering if someone has made a custom device type that cures this problem?

if you know what the parameter is you can add the parameter and it’s called to the configuration section of the code and then just run the configuration again.

Use @Mike_Maxwell’s device handler, and set them to report. You should not need polling.


Thank you very much. I will give it a shot

Hi I was looking at the posts here about the switch. Did you get it to work with the device handler

@way2fast4u No I couldn’t get it to work. I talked to Mike and he said he updated it and fixed it. But it still didn’t work and the change logs didn’t have any new dates so I just gave up. I was using pollster before and I still am now.

Hi all, 3 years down the road, it seems I stumbled over the same problem.
SOLUTION/TLDR; Update parameter 80 to the byte value 2. Use the z-wave tweaker DTH to configure it.

I have multiple Adsc26103-zwus in the house, and bought one recently which was polling and updating real slow. I wrote Aeotec support and some friendly tech explained the “Instant Report” feature used to be “patented” (Guess that’s what you get when you let Marketing people interfere with product development, groan). Anyway it’s not the case anymore so the solution was straight forward:

  1. Install the Z-wave tweaker DTH (it’ here on the ST forum. Just search for it)
  2. In the ST IDE, edit the device for the Aeotec switch. and change the DTH to z-wave weaker
  3. Open the device in the ST Classic app and hit the gear icon for the settings
  4. Scroll down to where you can enter a parameter and a value to configure: Parameter=80, Value=2. Hit Save.
  5. Go back to the ST-IDE and change the DTH back to what it was before (probably Z-Wave Switch Generic)

Now try flipping the attached manual switch. It should now update immediately (give or take a couple of sec). Before the hack, my switch took around 20-30 seconds to update in ST!
