Hello, I have a Aeotec by Aeon Labs ZW096 Smart Switch that I use in my garage to ensure my EV charges during the times I get cheaper electric rates and to track my electricity costs for charging my car. The problem I am having is the reset KWh button in ST doesn’t work. I also tried using a webCoRE piston but that won’t reset the KWh back to zero either.
Anyone else having this issue?
Who’s DTH are you using? ST’s stock, or a custom handler?
You probably need a custom DTH:

## Aeon Smart Switch 6 gen 5
Device handler used for the aeron smart switch gen5. Here's a list of features:
- On/off switch mode
- Energy cost (current and cumulative) based on how much you pay in your country/state/province
- Led color configuration
- Report frequency configuration (how often does the different values get updated)
- Secure mode inclusion support
- Disable switch configuration so it always stay on/off, if needed
- Report can either be configured to always be sent on a fixed time or when there is a delta difference in change %

Thanks, but this looks like it is for gen 5 and I have gen 6.

It’s actually the “Switch 6, Gen 5.”
Hmmm…Ok. I must have a different device. I installed the DTH and it didn’t update my switch in ST.

The device you linked to is the Switch 6, Gen 5. There is no Gen 6.
Can you explain a little more on what didn’t update. Are you saying the values are not updating? Not resetting?
After installing the DTH and opening the switch in ST the interface is still the stock interface.

Okay, then the custom handler is not installed properly. Have you gone in to the My Devices in the IDE and edited the device to change to the newly installed handler?
Oh come on. I’ve been installing custom DTH’s for 1.5 years and I completely spaced the fact that I have to change the handler for the device!! Ugh. That’s why I could never get your Minimote DTH to work.

Glad you have it working!
