I just bought a v1 minimote from aeon labs and I am trying to get it to turn on and off two lamp modules using my smartthings (v1) hub. I was thinking pressing one button would turn on the two lamp modules and pressing another button would turn them off. and maybe a press and hold to dim.
so I went in the app to the Things tab and went to "connect new device"
I chose Entertainment > Remotes & buttons > Aeon Labs > Aeon Labs Z-wave minimote > Connect Now.
Then I pressed and held the “Join” button on the minimote.
the app said it found it and asked me to name it, and then let me set up options for the Button Controller smart app.
i went through and for button 1, under lights > Pushed I dded the two lamp modules.
then I hit next to get through the next 3 buttons then hit Done"
but when I press button 1 on my minimote, the blue and red buttons light up and then a second later the red light flashes quickly - but nothing happens with the lights.
so two questions
- how do I troubleshoot this?
- when I select the two lamp modules under button 1>lights>press what is the intended behavior. Does that make it so that it turns those lights on with a press? or off? how would I get it to dim them?
I am finding myself very confused by this and would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on the subject - seems like there is something I am missing here.
oh and also - I did go and update the firmware on the minimote to 1.8.
