I have been reading some posts for connecting my gas fireplace to smartthings. I like the Remotec Z-Wave ZFM-80 but it is out of stock. Not sure if this is just temporary.
I have come up with a configuration using a Aeon Labs DSC26103-ZWUS - Z-Wave In-Wall Micro Controller and an ALLEN BRADLEY 700-HLT1U1. This would solve any problem with the switch being out of sync due to the Micro Controller. Any input is greatly appreciated. Also if this is a possibility i would need some help with a Smartapp for the micro controller.
Yes, it will work in ST like a regular light.
That relay you’re electrician recommended is a bit over the top for your application.
This relay will do the job just fine and is quite a bit smaller, and a whole lot cheaper.
@Mike_Maxwell is right, it will work like a normal light. You could use SmartLights to do the automation and that should fill most of your needs. The only reason for a custom smartapp would be a really specific trigger that Smart Lights doesn’t cover.
