If the OP wants turning on the accessory switch to cause the master switch to turn on via Z wave direct association, it doesn’t make any difference if the accessory switch is in the association groups in the firmware of the master switch. That doesn’t cause the master to turn on when the accessory turns on.
The master Has to be added to the association group in the firmware of the accessory switch.
If the accessory switch cannot be added to an edge driver that exposes the association groups then there’s no way to do it with Zwave association right now, because the stock Groovy DTH doesn’t expose those settings and you can no longer add a custom Groovy DTH (like the Z wave Tweaker).
So I am afraid that in the current situation, the only solution for using zwave direct association is to get the accessory switch matched with an edge driver that exposes the association groups.
His accessory dimmer has a fingerprint of 001A-4441-0502 so it’s not matching the model of 0x0000. I think there either needs to be an exact match or the productID needs to be removed like the fingerprint of the master.
Thank you very much! I installed the Z-Wave Switch and Child Mc, but it is not automatically adding to my RF9642 device which is using the DTH standard driver. It will only installs on my other devices that are using edge drivers
I suspect that now that you made this change on your side, when I exclude and re-add RF96402 device it will now install the Z-Wave Switch and Child Mc edge driver. But my understanding is that this is just a configuration tool and that after I am done using it I need to revert back to the standard edge driver. Since standard edge drivers are not installing on my device, how will this work?
Thanks again for this information on routines, while I try to work out the driver and Association issues I am having, I tried setting up routines as a temporary work-around, but I can’t seem to get them to work properly. In the “Smart lighting” routine could I get some help to know what to put in each section so that my accessory dimmer is controlled to my master dimmer?
Devices to control: Accessory Dimmer?
Actions - Control devices: 1. (on/off) 2. Dimmer (set/not set) 3. sync with switch (Yes/No)
Device status: Switch Master Dimmer? 1. (on/off) 2. Turn off when condition is reversed (Yes/No)
Also, do I need to set 1 routine for on and another for off or can I just set the Turn-off when condition is revered to “Yes”
Thanks for the quick reply, I just tried that and it did not work. In a way I am glad it was not that simple, as I would have felt very foolish spending 8 hours on Saturday trying to set up associations for this feature to work…LOL. Oh well, I sent a note to the Aeotec Help Desk. Maybe they have a solution. I think I am calling it quits for tonight.
Got it. I excluded my 9642 and added it back to the network. The device successfully installed the “Zwave Device Config Mc” driver. I created the child and I see it next to my hub. I am so close !! Thanks again everyone for getting me this far.
Here are my questions:
Is there a way to find the DNI of my 9640 Master Dimmer using a web broswer or do I need to install the “Zwave Device Config Mc” driver on the device?
Because the app does not show the labels of the custom capabilities well and shows the creation name of the capability
When you have finished with the association and see that it works, you must delete the child device configurator. You can create it again when you need it
The DNI of the device receiving the command can be seen in the “Device Fingerprint Info” option.
In this case it would be the DNI of the Master dimmer and the association must be done in the Accessory dimmer, which is the one that will send the on-off or level command to the Master dimmer
