I have three of these and they work well. But I want to use one feature that is not supported in the default device type for z-wave switches. I want to reverse the behavior of the LED.
By default the LED is on when the switch is off. Sort of a night light to help you find the switch.
But these switches are inside the front door controlling outdoor lights that are not easily viewable from inside and it would be more intuitive if the LED is on when the outdoor light is on.
You can turn the LED off all together by clicking the switch a certain number of times. But there is no manual click based way to reverse it.
From page 9 of the manual:
About the LED indicator:
By factory default, the LED indicator will be On when the connected appliance is Off, and
vice versa. This setting can be changed by the following methods,
- Configuration change with a controller(if supported)
Parameter 3 Length: 1 byte Valid values: 0, 1 or 2 (default 0)
If value = 0, the LED indicator will be Off when the connected appliance is On, and the LED
indicator will be On when the connected appliance is Off
If value = 1, the LED indicator will be On when the connected appliance is On, and the LED
indicator will be Off when the connected appliance is Off
If value = 2, the LED indicator will be always Off regardless of the load status
I want parameter 3 to have a value of 1
Is there a device type that will give me access to this?
I am not prepared to create my own device type from scratch. But I have implemented some custom device types that I found in the community.
