Homeseer WD-100+ Association Issue

Z wave association changed significantly with zwave plus.

The lifeline group, which is required of all zwave plus devices, is intended only for messages between that device and the hub, such as battery status. It is not for use where one end device controls another. That would typically be used in Association group two now.

If a zwave plus device only supports Association group one, it’s almost the same as if an older Z wave device didn’t support association at all. That is what is happening with this device.

Homeseer switch uses central scene commands. So they generally don’t feel the need to use association because they can just use a central scene instead. So I think that’s what most people would do in the set up that you’re describing.

You have the Homeseer switch send the command to the hub, and then the hub send the command to the Kichlers. It should work fine, although with perhaps a slight amount of additional lag relative to direct association.
