Wondering if there’ve been any changes to the other dth that apply to this one? I noticed it doesn’t seem as if the motion sensor is responding in the tile section, other than that everything seems OK!
I have been updating them both at the same time until today. I did quite a bit of work on the dimmer that will also need to be done on the switch. I did order one of the switches though, so I’ll probably wait until that is here to release any more for the switch. That way I can test it a little before posting.
@mlebaugh - Thanks for taking on the development of the DTH for this gem. I want to add a few around the house once it is working fine but for now I am having a few issues…
I can’t get it to pair in secure mode. I do not have many plugged in Zwave Plus devices at this time so I wonder whether it needs a direct connection to the hub in order to connect in secure mode… If so, I wonder if adding a few other Zwave plus devices between the hub and this motion switch will help. It is not practical to pair it next to the hub… even though I could do it.
I use Leviton Vizia RF+ switches and they all report heir status pretty much immediately. This motion switch is not updating its status unless I click on the refresh button. I am guessing this is just due to Alpha code. If it doesn’t update immediately it will be a deal breaker for me so I am waiting on this to be figured out before buying more.
It doesn’t appear that the configuration settings are working correctly. This is what the log shows when I press “Configure”:
3:10:21 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when on
3:10:21 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when off
3:10:20 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when off
3:10:20 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when on
3:10:19 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when on
3:10:19 PM: debug Parse returned Garage Light 2 indicator status is when off
3:10:15 PM: debug Updating Switch Settings
The motion sensing doesn’t appear to work other than locally turning on the load. What I mean is that the hub is not informed of any movement but the lights do go on.
All of these items except #1 are likely due to the fact that I don’t have a simple switch yet to test with. I should have one this weekend to mess with.
The last 2 (#3 and #3?) are for sure due to that. I’ve fixed those issues on the dimmer side.
Number 2 is likely because I started with some code for a non zwave plus switch which did not have instant status. I did see that another forum member had a regular (non motion) he zwave plus switch DTH that I was going to use as a base.
Got the switch in today. Added the zwave fingerprint, motion and updated the preferences. The newest version is in the initial post.
I was also able to add button push events for the device thanks to the work for the regular GE plus switches that @nuttytree has done over here. I plan to try to merge in the association groups as in the other device handler soon.
I excluded mine and included it back again more than once but it still fails to work properly. When motion turns on the light, no event is reported and the ST app doesn’t reflect any change. If I press the refresh button the on/off status updates and under Recently I see all the configs settings scroll by as if I had just updated them.
When some say they are resetting the switch, are they pressing any of the buttons in some special way to wipe any previous configuration? Sorry… I lost my instructions.
