I just installed two Jasco 3-way switches. Then I setup two ‘The Big Switch’ apps so that when I turn on one light circuit, it turns on the other as well, and vice versa.
This works great, except that when I flip the auxiliary switches, the installed apps don’t seem to run, so the other lights don’t seem to switch together.
I know the auxiliary’s aren’t z-wave enabled themselves, but I thought that by switching the primary switch the primary would notify the SmartThings hub. Am I mistaken? Is there a workaround?
I did notice that by going to the SmartThings app on my phone and viewing the switch that changed state, if I tap ‘refresh’ the app then runs correctly.
Is there a work around for this? The auxiliary switch is located at our main entrance, so it would be really handy to get multiple lights to come on when we come in.
