I haven’t received them yet, but I’ll be doing extensive testing shortly. homecontrols.com and discounthomeautomation.com both carry the dimmers, as well as direct from Homeseer. Homeseer will give you a 5% coupon if you add the item to your cart and let it sit overnight, or 10% off if you own the Homeseer program ( I don’t plan on it at this point ). Homeseer also apparently has some black friday discounts, but I don’t want to wait for that.
Dragon Tech dimmers were the same hardware as the Homeseer dimmers but they ran different software. There was apparently a way to reflash Dragon Tech hardware to Homeseer software, but it doesn’t really help now since Dragon Tech has disappeared and stopped importing more hardware. The 2016 dragon tech switches actually had the multi-tap recognition built in, but good luck finding any of them at this point.
I already run the phillips bulbs that Homeseer recommends and apparently don’t have the dimming issues, so I should be set on that end. I guess I’ll be the guinea pig on this one and test it’s latency against my Leviton VRMX1, but I don’t really expect double or triple tap commands to be instant because with smart things it will all be running in the cloud.
Note: Homeseer has already released one firmware update to their switches this year that fixed a bug and adjusted the dim rates and how they can be tweaked. This review mentioned it a bit: http://darwinsden.com/homeseer100plus/
I like that they have shown a willingness to update their dimmer firmware and add requested features. Just keep in mind you’d need a $40 USB z-wave stick from them to do it since you need to use their Homeseer software (the demo will work) to do the update. And you’d need to temporarily remove the switches from Smartthings and add them to Homeseer to install the update, so it’s not a perfect situation.
