Aeotec Smart Switch 6 (ZW096)


I’ll start off by apologising for my potentially simple problem however, I am new to home automation and the ST environment. I recently purchased a couple of the Aeotec Smart Switch 6 (ZW096) and am having trouble with the coloured ring.

I am wanting to turn it off, in particular at night. The nightlight is not practical in one of the locations I have the smart switch. I have tried the device handler by @jbisson with no great success. When I try to make changes to the colour or dimmer, it just hangs and then I get an error “A network or server error occurred. Try again later.”

I’m also not able to reset the energy consumption, this is both with the customer device handler and the generic Z-Wave Metering Switch handler. Sorry again, however I have spent the last 2 days trying to find an answer and still am at a loss as to how to fix these two issues.

Were you able to find a solution for this? I am wondering the same

Hi Matt,

I ended up using the Z-Wave Tweaker device handler that is available at
