Hello, new to community.
I need help with troubleshooting a WT00Z-1 used with a WS15Z-1
and also JDRoberts “Method 1: virtual three way with smartlights”
Device A is One Nortek WS15Z-1: Z-Wave Wall Switch wired to a stairwell light fixture and located at bottom of stairs
Device B is One Nortek WT00Z-1: Z-Wave 3-Way Wall Accessory Switch located at top of stairs
Both Z-Wave devices were included in the setup of a GoControl GC2 hub.
Device B was associated to device A. This permits device B to control the lights also. I.e. a 3-way setup without any need for traveler wires.
So, I get my new SmartThings hub setup and add a bunch of new GE Wave switches without issue. Next step is to move the Norteks from the GC2 hub to ST
Next, I Exclude both device A and device B from the GoControl GC2 hub.
Next, I add device A to ST hub via add new device. ST hub finds device A and adds it perfectly. I confirm I can control device A from the app! All good so far.
Next, I add device B to ST hub via add new device. ST hub finds device B and adds it. I now see both device A and device B in the Devices list.
Next, I setup the virtual 3-way via Smart Lighting automation.
Here is the issue. I can control the WT00Z-1(Device B) from the app. I can toggle it “on” and “off” from the app. When I toggle from the app, the SmartLighting automation works as expected and also the green light on the switch changes from lit to unlit as expected (lit = “off”, unlit = “on”)
So, ST can “talk” to the switch". However, manually pressing the rocker to change from off to on and vice versa does not talk to ST. The status on the ST app stays the same regardless of manual rocker switching. I.e. one cannot manually press the rocker to initiate the Smart Lighting automation.
Any suggestions? I don’t have access to a Minimote to associate these two devices and I noticed it is a discontinued product on Aeon Labs site.
