I’ve been dreaming of something like this, easily integrated into solar banks. I think this might be it. Several projects have been waiting on this.
Will have to see what the power consumption is, but it will probably be manageable.
Coming up on vacation, and needed a way to let the cat in occasionally, through a sliding glass door. The acuator will do it. Those Smartthings cams are finally gonna be put to good use too. Have to make sure kitty is clear of the door… ehh. I’ll have to put in a anti-squish limit switch too…
I’ve been looking at this too, but I wish it didn’t require a separate supply for logic power. Some of the zigbee wall warts do this, but require nema plugs in/out instead of screw terminals which is more flexible.
I’m not a fan of the screw terminals on this device, mainly because the metal is so soft.
I think as long as you are powering your end devices with 7-32v, you can use the same power for the device as for the relays as long as you make jumpers to relay side. That’s probably obvious, but I was a little nervous about doing that with the 12v acuator, not knowing what to expect with the current reversing on the relay side.
I would have like to have seen terminals for external momentary switches, but I suppose having the ability to use RF remotes is a good consolation.
There are a few variants of this style of multi relay, so maybe more options are in the works.
You may be the first person to try the 4 channel version with Smartthings.
I would have thought the Zigbee Multi Switch DTH would have worked, but I do not have the 4-channel version yet to try. So, I won’t be of much help in getting it working.
Considering that many our Smartthings community members/developers are actively creating new drivers to replace the current DTHs, hopefully some will take interest in this device, or it will “just work” with the Edge replacement for the Zigbee Multi DTH.
I did see that some indication that it is working with Hubitat, and that is usually a good sign for device compatibility with Smartthings.
Wish I could be more help, at the moment, but this is of interest to me as well. I think the chances of it eventually working with the new Edge drivers are good, for what that is worth.
Thank you for your reply.
Hope that there will be way to succes:-) I would like use this module for connect to exist home automation Jablotron. Zigbee switch will be as trigere connected to input of Jablotron and after that I would like control Jablotron via voice through Google assistant:-)
