(UK, US) Nodon Octan Remote. Zwave battery-operated multi-button wallmount or table top button controller. Tap, hold and double tap on 4 buttons. ( also sends the hold release indication, which could be used with core.)
I have these fitted in 3 applications.
As has been said, they are z-wave and integrate nicely with ST.
So using the switch you can just turn them on and off as required or use rules to do the job for you.
Great little device.
I’m slowly getting my smart home up and working. Installed a SmartThings Hub, Replaced a couple switches and outlets with Zwave compatible ones and added a door and motion sensors. My problem is that my family isn’t nearly as excited by the technology as I am. They don’t want to fish their smartphone out of their pockets every time they want to turn a lamp on. I love the Swiid cord switch above, but it’s not available in the US yet. In the meantime I was thinking of making one of my smart switches do double duty; act as a current switch to control the overhead light and as a button for the lamps in the room. Reading this thread it looks like the Leviton VRCS4 would work for my needs…but the price is a bit steep. Are there other solutions that offer a switch to control the current and a button or two I can use for the lamps.
(US and U.K.) Xiaomi Mi Magic Cube. Very small, inexpensive zigbee device that works the same way as the mood cube, but comes pre-built and is very inexpensive. Some community members have it working fine, some say they can’t get it working which may mean a defective product. So far gearbest and bang good are carrying it. Some people report getting a pink one instead of a white one.
In regards to the Nodon Octan Remote – You mentioned UK and US the UK for this product. The UK version works at a different frequency than US Z-wave, which means I am a bit disappointed. I guess the US distribution will come soon. Hopefully nobody in the US tried to order the UK version. I expect they would be even more disappointed once it arrives.
I ended up throwing one a way too b/c it fell off a table and the battery “drawer” wouldn’t stay in after that. I assume some plastic piece broke off. Thankfully they are only $10 at a couple of the Lowes by me.
Ya it was cheap and worked. We’ll see about the longevity. I keep it on a wall and never move it much. I like the size though. Looking for a central button style remote for guest to push for easy functions so they don’t need a tablet or phone interface.
Anyone know of a single zwave button that is available in the US market?
I have been using the IRIS SmartButton (zigbee), but having a problem with it not staying connected to the hub. I’m using it currently to trigger a zwave wall plugin switch that has a lamp connected to it.
Half the time the smart button requires you to push it multiple times, which then seems to queue up the presses once it wakes up and the light goes crazy for a couple seconds… Other times, it will do nothing. I have had to re-pair it when this happens.
I feel like zwave is more stable in my house… being that I have plenty of repeaters in place.
