It depends on the exact device type handler that you are using, but typically when you open the devices details page there will be a gear that lets you change the initial parameters, including indicator LED behavior.
A number of people have reported in the last month that their switch behavior mysteriously changed, sometimes just for one or two switches, and it appears that the device type handlers being used were different even though they themselves have not made any changes. Which is weird, but has been reported by multiple people.
So the first thing I would do is review which device type handler is being used and make sure the settings are still the way you want them.
I am using Z-Wave Switch, there are two both the same. I have the settings set as they should be. I haven’t played with Z-Wave delay etc as that shouldn’t have anything to do with LED. I tried both On when switch is On and On when switch is Off, both don’t work. Is there another device handler?
When you first install the generic device handler, light defaults to always OFF. You can modify behavior in IDE.
Smartthings has been having issues lately and changes from mobile app do not always propagate.
I hope this is a good place to ask this, since it is sort of related. I have the ZWave switches and the default is to have the LED on when the load is off. A mistake in my opinion, but it’s programmable, or so I’ve read. Jasco states that parameter 3 can be set to 0, 1, or 2, depending on the characteristic desired. Since I am not a coder, my question is, What combination of controller and application has the capability to modify parameter 3? I have a Wink hub 2 but that doesn’t appear to be sophisticated enough for this task.
THANK YOU!!! I’ve had one out of over two dozen of these switches that the LED NEVER worked! Drove me crazy for the past year. The “press on 3 times real quick then off” trick worked! When nothing else would. Not sure how it got disabled on the first place!
