I recently returned one of these to HD because I couldn’t get it to reset/pair - and largely due to the this thread determined I had a faulty unit. What is up with the production quality of these units that so many are faulty?
Also, is there one zigbee repeater people are favoring?
I use the Lowes Iris 3210-L outlet, as it repeats both Zigbee and Z-Wave. It is a Centralite OEM device, which I have found to be very reliable over the years. Note: The on/off functionality is Zigbee. Z-Wave is just a repeater.
Hello everyone, has anyone ran into issues getting this into pairing mode? Have tried to reset it over 15 time now with no luck. I leave it off then after some time (one min +) I turn it on for 3 and off for 3, five times but the lights never blink and it never shows up in the smartthings app. The fan is closer then the other one I have so I hope is not a distance issue.
There is also a wifi one made by Sonoff…the iFan02. But it requires some modification to work with some US fans. Up side…it only costs $15. Until I finally figured out why mine kept disconnecting I was considering it.
Are there updates to the DTH for this fan controller that would work with the non-classic smartthings? I recently started having problems with my Google home mini being able to control the fan light and speed. The device shows up in the Google home app on my phone and will turn on and off via those commands, but every command from the Google home mini says there was was an error. I also get the same error message when trying to control the fans from the smartthings modern app.
Unfortunately @dalec has been AWOL for quite some time now and I have moved over to Hubitat. Ironically one of the main reasons I jumped ship was because I had no plans to learn the new samsung/smartthings api. I’m not a programmer and it took me a long time to learn how to navigate groovy. I wouldn’t have had the time to learn a new language.
If anyone would like to port this dth over, please feel free to do so. I’ll be happy to answer basic functionality questions but will be unable to assist with direct coding. Feel free to PM me…but please be patient if I dont respond quickly. I rarely check the ST forums anymore.
Anyone looking for a fix when the hub and the fan stop responding. I went in the app, deleted the light and only left the main fan. Then i went to the settings page of the fan and checked the box that says delete and recreate all child devices. a few seconds later the light flashed like 10 times and started working again.
Just picked two of these up. Works great. Just curious what bulbs people are using and if they can do below 20%? I had a GE zwave dimmer on this light previously and was able to get them to go dimmer than they can go with this. Have feit bulbs wondering if different ones would work better
