Help needed with Sylvania dimming switch to use two buttons

I find it odd that it’s listed as supported… but not really

It’s an odd device. Under the old architecture, there were three different DTHs for it and they worked in very different ways.

[OBSOLETE] FAQ: Sylvania battery-power dimming Switch (model 73743): why there are three different DTHs to choose from

Were you using it before and if so, with which DTH?

Are you tried with the stock driver Zigbee Button.
This device is in the fingerprints, I do no known if is the same as your

I think I tried the stock driver…? I removed and diételes all the button switches and reinstalled them… so I assume it would pick up a stock driver but there isn’t a driver option in settings. I’m a bit confused

The descriptions look the same. How do I make sure that that driver is being used?

The production driver does not have fingerprinting enabled and therefore will not be installed automatically.

You have to install the beta stock driver zibgee Button in your hub and then try to pair it

  #   deviceLabel: OSRAM Button
  #   manufacturer: OSRAM
  #   model: LIGHTIFY Dimming Switch
  #   deviceProfileName: two-buttons-battery-holdTime

I don’t want to sound ignorant, but how do I do that? It looks like I have the zigbee button driver on my hub… but there’s no option in my device to change driver…


I was using it before with a custom DTH. I honestly can’t remember which one though. I just used it as a simple 2-button device with press and hold. I deleted them from my IDE though to make sure it would pick up the edge driver…. Which I’m not sure if it has.

The zigbee Button installed in your hub is the production driver and It has not activated your fingerprints.

Note the driver has not channel download assigned.

You need install it from smartthings beta channel

Another question. I have some virtual switches I made years ago. They still show as “virtual switches” in the ide and haven’t switched over to “placeholders” like most things. Am I going to have to delete those and recreate them some other way manually?… or will they convert automatically still? I have a few older smartthings contact/tilt/vibration sensors that did not automatically switch over too. Has everything that could be automatically migrated already done so and anything left I’m going to have to figure out manually at this point? Thanks

The automatic migration is not yet complete.

The only official mention of virtual devices is that they are looking into it. :thinking: So we don’t yet know if they will be automatically migrated or not.

If you want to manually create your own replacements, here’s the community FAQ on that:
