I just installed a “GE Z-Wave Wireless Lighting Control On/Off Switch, In-Wall, Z-Wave Plus, 1429” and a “GE Add-On Switch for Z-Wave, ZigBee and GE Bluetooth Wireless Lighting Controls, 12723” for a bedroom light. The switches work manually. (i.e I can turn on/off the light with either switch by touching them physically.) The smart switch is in the bedroom while the add on switch is right at the bedroom door, closer to the hub.
The hub can detect the smart switch in the bedroom. BUT, it does not detect the add on switch. Is it suppose to? The reason being, is that if the bedroom light is turned on or off with the add on switch, smarttings does NOT register the light as being on or off. It only detects the last command from the bedroom switch.
E.g. I walk into the bedroom and turn on the light physically with the add on switch. I check the app and it says the light is still off. I can then turn off the light with the smart switch, and the app still says off. I can switch the light on with the smart switch, and the app says the light is “on”. But, if I then turn it off physically with the add on switch, it still says “on” in the app.
The issue with this is that I have to tap the app smartswitch on and off to make sure it is off.
Does this all make sense? Thanks for any help!!
