Purchased 2 Aeotec KeyFob remote control ZW088. Within 5-6 days of no use the battery is already at 30%
The manufacturer has sent a file and the following…
“If using the original device handler of Key Fob, it is set to have Wakeup which will deplete battery life, we always suggest that Wakeup should be disabled with this controller so that Key Fob does not automatically drain its battery power.
Please install the attached custom device handler.”
A device handler will not show in the ST app, only SmartApps will. When you install a device handler, you will need to assign it to the device if you already have it paired to ST. To do this, in IDE, the same place you added the handler, you can go to my devices, find the device you want to assign it to and edit that device. When you click on Edit, look for the type field, it is a pull-down menu, any device handlers you have added will be at the very bottom of the list. Select the device handler you added and then click update on the bottom of the screen.
How to pair the device? I wasn’t able to pair it, I was only able to create the custom handler in the IDE and them from the IDE I could create a new device but it seems that my physical device never gets paired.
A little help please!
What device are you trying to add? Which app are you using… SmartThings Classic or SmartThings (Samsung Connect)?
But assuming you published the device handler in IDE, you should use the Classic app and just click on Add a Device in most cases and it should find it. Using create a new device in IDE will not do it.
I was working with the devices in 24VDC. Although the user manual says it support that voltage there were no way to exclude or include the device.
I switched to 220VAC and i have succeeded using the instructions of @wgmcg in the following post.
Best advice is to contact the developer of any device handlers you are using. But there may be a modification you can make to the code to get it working in the STSC app. Read the following thread for info on how to do it.
