I need to be able to control my five ceiling fans individually through my SmartThings HUB. Three are currently controlled solely by remote controls and two have an on/of switch on the wall with light and fan speed controlled by dangle cables.
This topic has a lot of posts in it but look above and you’ll see this was actually addressed here somewhat recently. Take a look at the other topic that’s mentioned for a fan/light control that uses zigbee and is hopefully available from Home Depot soon.
Those should work with ST. The double switch might need a community-developed device handler, I know that in-wall relays from other brands tend to need that to work. But the smart switch should pair as a generic z-wave switch.
Thanks for the advice. Where can I get the device handler for the Double? I
got the handler for the 6 from git hub but I still can’t get it to load a
Smart App. I’m new to this but enjoying learning. I have a tech background.

There are several posts in this forum about dual relays, I don’t remember if any are for the aeotec dual relay specifically. But look at some of the handlers written by @erocm1231 as a starting point to see if any will work for you.
I’m not 100% sure what you mean but there’s a difference between device handlers and smartapps. So that may be the issue you’re describing? This post discusses custom code in ST if you want to learn more.
If you have more questions about your situation feel free to take it to another topic. This one’s supposed to be limited to discussion re: devices that aren’t supported by ST at all.
It works well. I am using them for to read a old alarm system with relay, a yard light with a relay and a heating boiler with a relay. So I have 3 at each of two locations. Set up is under open /closed sensors is this weeks version of Smart things as a Aeotec Dor/Window Sensor (Gen 5) mostly all z wave things work but only one function. Also using 4 Fibaro Door Window sensors which have connections so it can be used a a dry contact sensor and is much smaller FGK 101 -107. I use the Mimolite for a momentary switch on a garage door and a automatic Gate but use a dry contact sensor with a garage door armored door magnetic switch to sensor the gate and on the Garage door I use the positon function on a Smart things door switch and that shows up as a garage door in the APP. Anything not a Samsung part takes some messing around and when setting thing up you do it and walk away wait a few hours and the server will figure it out. The Z wave things are funny about getting them to join. I am up to 87 Devices on 2 hubs in 2 countries
edit: @JDRoberts correctly pointed out that Aeon doesn’t recommend using the Gen5 MultiSensor as an outdoor motion sensor. Due to the way that PIR sensors work they’re inherently poor at detecting motion in outdoor environments. If you were to use it you might see lots of false positives. If you have an outdoor area that’s sectioned off you may find some use in it, but otherwise we can’t recommend any outdoor motion sensors at this time.
Hi @Tyler, do you anticipate any updates on whether we’ll have official support for the centralite keypad (or any other) in the near future? It’s been about a year since you mentioned this was in progress (in another thread). Thanks.
I’ve seen that smartapp, thanks. I can use the keypad to arm/disarm SHM, it has a functioning device handler. But ST staff have said in the past they won’t roll out delayed arming of SHM until there’s an officially supported keypad.
