I just finally moved to Smartthings this last week from my previous solution. All has gone pretty well so far.
I need to be able to make a change to Command Class Parameter 11 in the MIMOlite. This controls how many milliseconds the momentary relay stays closed. Yes I have tried to do some research here on this forum and elsewhere, I see many others are trying to get the input terminals working and changing other Parameters also. I don’t need any of that, just want to be able to adjust Parameter 11.
I see that one can code their own device handler, it is great that this flexibility exists but it is a bit overwhelming at this point.
Any help is appreciated.
Fortunately, a community member has created the “Z wave tweaker.” This is a device type handler which will expose all the parameters of any zwave device.
You just install the tweaker on your account, temporarily assign the Mimolite to it, set the parameters however you want, and then assign the Mimolite back to its every day DTH.

This is a device handler to assist with interrogating and tweaking Z-Wave devices. It’s designed for end-users who want to tweak their devices and for developers who want to quickly discover and report the functionality of new devices. It is intended to temporarily replace a device’s normal device handler.
Key features in v0.08:
Discover association groups, multi-channel endpoints, and configuration parameters.
Configure association group members from the SmartThings GUI.
Configure parameter values from the SmartThings GUI.
Configure Protection and Switch_All modes from the SmartThings GUI.
Discover supported meter/alarm/notification/sensor report types.
Just in case you haven’t used a custom DTH before, here’s the FAQ for that. Basically you’re just going to copy the author’s code, in this case the tweaker DTH, and paste it into your own account.
So you’re new to SmartThings, you asked a question, and someone suggested “custom code” as an answer.
Or you were browsing the forums, and you found something that sounded like it would be perfect for what you wanted, but again, “uses custom code.”
What does that mean, how hard is it to do, and what’s the difference between a “SmartApp” and a “Device Type Handler”?
(Note: the official terminology has changed a couple of times. “device type handler,” “device handler,” “DTH,” and “device type” all mean the same thing, and you will find all these terms used in the forums.)

Thank you ! That did exactly what I needed it to do. I was able to change the default of .5 second to 2.6 seconds.
Thank you for the quick reply.
Yeah, the tweaker is awesome.
@zcapr17 deserves a lot of kudos for that one!
