Is it possible to pair a Neo Coolcam Motion Sensor to Smartthings? Ive tried under the Generic Z Wave category but it didnt pair.
The search button is your friend
Which model? Neo Coolcam makes several. Some work with smartthings, some don’t. For example, the WiFi version NAS-PD01W doesn’t.
First rule of home automation: “the model number matters.“
I have this model:
Neo Coolcam Z-Wave Plus Motion, Temp & Light Sensor SKU: NAS-PD02Z-Temp
So I have loaded the Device Handler, but I’m not sure how to get the sensor to pair with SmartThings. I’ve attached screenshots, I’m just unsure what to do from here. I’ve been googling but can’t figure it out. I’ve tried the new SmartThings app and the Classic one.
If you can’t get it to pair, try resetting it to factory defaults first. If it’s the same as my Neo, you do this:
Press and hold the reset button for 10-15 seconds, then LED
lights would flash red color 1 time first, then 5 times on and off
alternately. *From the manual
Then pair it by pulling the battery, put it back in and wait 20 seconds, then press the code button 3 times. Use the new app and have it in inclusion more the whole time you’re attempting to pair. After it joins, update the device handler in the IDE and then wake up the device by pressing the code button once.
Yay, resetting the device worked! Woo hoo, thanks!
