GE 14291 Z-Wave Smart Switch Support

I was thinking about picking these up, they are on/off only and I wanted to see if anyone can confirm they will work without a custom device handler.


none of the GE z-wave plus switches currently work without a custom handler

That is not true. I have the dimmer version 14295 and it works without a custom handler. It shows as a generic dimmer switch in the ide

ah, nevermind then! I saw handlers floating around here. Maybe they open up more features the default one doesn’t?

you probably saw this post…

The Plus switches will work with the default generic handler just without any of the extra features.

Any certified Z wave devices, including the new GE switches, should work with on/off/dim, using the stock generic device type handlers.

If you want access to the advanced features, such as double tap, then you would need a custom handler at present, although I would expect them to eventually have a stock SmartThings handler.

Ah, but they still don’t. After the level of support you’ve seen from SmartThings, one should be realistic about their apathy.
