Yeah, it seems Edge for new devices isn’t live yet. Just excluded a Zooz zwave switch from a hub without beta firmware in it. After re-adding it still used a standard Groovy DTH even though the fingerprint is in an Edge driver.
Is the general assumption that when ST said they were beginning with a small number of devices, they actually meant every single driver that was already in beta? I was thinking they might start with just one or two drivers and take it slowly.
Certainly I have devices using beta drivers that are not ready for production with those devices yet, as well as ones that used stock DTHs that are not in the Edge equivalent.
Ok then, not knowing what small number of devices actually include, I just ‘enrolled’ and installed both versions of the Virtual Edge drivers previously mentioned that were created by developers other than Samsung to start this Edge journey. So, where do I find all the current Samsung SmartThings created Edge drivers to enroll in?
Yes, I had noticed that too. That just seemed like rather a lot of devices to drop in one go, and we know that not every driver in that repo can support all the devices it fingerprints to the same standard (e.g. my contact and motion sensors fall offline frequently).
Yes, and the main branch has been reassigned from ‘beta’ to ‘alpha’ in the deployment scripts. There has also been an acceptance branch for a broadly similar timescale.
It was having already been aware of the single driver in production, and a very recent change to it, that motivated me to question the actual pace things were moving. I don’t want to leap to any conclusions, but if only a single driver has actually gone into production so far I’d be delighted (assuming the punters are happy with it).
I added two new Jasco/GE model 43080 ZigBee dimmers today. Both added just fine. However it does not appear that they used Edge drivers. At least when I look at them in the app, there is no Driver item in the “…” list, only Edit and Information.
I think a variety of different conclusions are being drawn about what is actually available.
My assumption is that the Edge drivers in the main branch on GitHub are those pending open beta, those in the beta branch are those that have been deployed to open beta, and those in production have been deployed into production. That to me suggests only the Z-Wave Valve and Z-Wave Range Extender drivers are now stock and the others have to be selected from the beta channel. However other assumptions are available and they are likely to be more accurate than mine, as mine are just what I’d like to be true.
