I my ST Hub V2 over this past weekend. I had been using Vera Lite successfully for the last year. I have three VRCS4-M0Z controllers that I was able to program with the Vera Lite. I have installed the new device type and the Smart App by @bdahlem available in the Smartthings Community forum under the “Leviton VRCS4” post. They seem to be working only, somewhat. I created four “routines” in the mobile app, and assigned those to the four buttons on the controller. They show up under “Activate these phrases” as “Hello Home Actions.”
My issue is that this controller worked a little differently with Vera Lite. Each button over there was designed to do two things. If you pressed it, it would send send a scene command and light up green (it would stay lit), but when you pressed it again, it would send a different scene command (and no longer be lit). That second scene command was set up in my system as “turn the lights off”. So first press would turn the lights on (with green light turining on), and the second would turn the lights off (with green light going off). Programming this was accomplished with simple drop down menus in Vera Lite: choose the “on scene,” and then choose the “off scene.” Can we do anything similar over here? Also, The dimmer switch at the bottom of the controller worked naturally over there. It would control the light levels for the last button that you pushed. Has anyone gotten something like that to work?
This functionality is a very important part of my home. My wife would never use the app. Those buttons on the wall are the only way that she can turn lights on and off. This really needs to be addressed, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason why ST can’t do it just like Vera.
