I got an idea - I am planning to use Home Seer HS-WS100+ switch as a scene controller, action activation - or simply a switch. I picked it because of it’s double tap, triple tap, and hold functions. I do wonder 2 things:
Will the hold up/down be able to control another Z-Wave dimmer
Will the switch work ok without any load connected to it? This is probably a question for the manufacturer so I emailed them for their input.
HomeSeer support confirmed there is no issues running it without load.
My usage and set up:
Primary dimmer is Lutron 1000w, low voltage magnetic.
Slave HS-WS100+ turns on and off the dimmer; with single taps
It dims is up and down with holding up or down paddle (buttons 5 and 6 per DTH); slight delay (it’s more sensible vs directly attached auxiliary). It’s set up through CoRE - you can hold down till desired dim is reached (probably release one idea earlier due to delay). I’ve set it up so it dims +5 or -5 and it’s smooth enough.
The biggest challenge was to sync Lutron main and the HS virtual auxiliary, mainly because it was my first interaction with CoRE. What I’ve done is: If Lutron turns on, turns on auxiliary (to sync). But when I set up the opposite, it double triggered (HS triggered Lutron on which triggered sync and HS on again and vice versa). So I added a condition, HS - turns on Lutron only if Lutron is off and vice versa.
Additionally, I use double tap and triple tap to toggle 4 more lights. That was the main reason I went with the HomeSeer HS-WS100+ in the 1 gang space I had. The Lutron was a must due to LVM transformer.
Overall, for $50, the HS-WS100+ is a great scene./action controller with 8 button combinations. The dimmer version, HS-WD100+ can be even used as a virtual roller shades or fan with visual indication low (LED dim level lights).
This thread is just intended as a list of the buttons and switches that work with SmartThings, not for individual discussion or recommendations. ( otherwise it becomes too hard to read.) You will notice that the individual posts generally have a link to a thread where you can ask follow on questions about a specific device.
Otherwise, start a new thread under projects and people will be glad to give you advice About your particular set up .
This is an FAQ thread for devices which have been confirmed to work with SmartThings. Please start a new thread under “devices” for pre-release products such as the nanomote. (Aeotec in particular is famous for announcing devices about three years before they actually release them to market.)
Posts in this topic should generally be limited to one per device with a link to the discussion thread about it. Or you can start a post under projects if you have a particular use case you were trying to meet and want to brainstorm device possibilities. Thanks!
You can use any of the following X-10 remotes and probably dozens others with my Smartapp and Device handlers - both on/off and dimming functions are supported. You will need to purchase a CM15A or CM19A device and also need a raspberry pi or another computer run the bridging software.
I must say this was the best option. With @enis help this took me a day to get everything up and running. Now I have devices that have an extended range. Don’t have to worry about them falling off the network and no I can put in action the 40 or so x10 devices that I was about to put on ebay. So if there is any of you out there that have a ton of x10 devices just sitting there let me know. Looking for some more remotes.
Third Reality No Wiring Battery Operated Smart Switch (Zigbee)
This is a skinny smart switch cover which physically moves the switch underneath. Will work with US style toggle or rocker switches, And unlike the switchmate, it will fit a double or triple gang format. Screws on over the existing switch. See the company’s FAQ for the necessary DTH. Looks like it identifies as a ZHA bulb, But without the dimming option, just on/off.
