I have a Monoprice Z-Wave Switch that I’m trying to get to work with ST.
It is wired properly behind a regular switch, since it worked well with HomeSeer and an old HA07. ST has detected it as a Z-Wave Switch, and it does respond to commands… somewhat…
When I turn the switch On manually (top part of paddle on switch), and the light is on, ST sees it as being off. The button on ST is white and doesn’t turn the light on/off. I touch it, it goes green, then it goes back to white.
Now, if I turn the switch off manually (bottom part of the paddle on switch), the light stays on, ST sees it as being on. The button on ST is green and doesn’t turn the light on/off. I touch it, it goes white, stays white. I touch it again, it goes green and stays green. But no effect on the light.
Here is the magic… Now, if I turn the switch on manually (top part of paddle on switch), light is still on, ST sees it as being off. The button on ST is white and it DOES turn the light off! Subsequent touches of the button have no effect. I touch it, it goes green, then it goes back to white.
Flipping the switch manually off turns the button green, but I can’t use ST to turn the light on ever when the switch is in the down position. When I flip the switch on (up part of the paddle), now I can turn the lights back on with ST.
So… ST never works when the switch is in the off position. However, if I cycle the switch off, then on, then I get a one time chance to either turn the lights on/off with ST. Then I need to cycle the switch again to be able to get ST button to respond again.
Please help! I just bought my ST, and I love the idea of it! I’ve already started messing around with custom device types, but have had no luck so far. Any ideas?
