Thanks for the DH. I have it up and running and it seems to be working spot on.
On a side note … is there a way to change the reporting on the “my things” screen to still say open but be white? I ask this because, I frequently check my apps (both IOS and Android) looking for lights left on and problems. When this shows up BLUE it draws my eye and makes me think something is wrong. Maybe I’m the odd ball out, but I would rather only have some type of notification if something is wrong meaning the valve is closed. Otherwise when it is open I’d rather it just blend in …
I am having the same problem with the status on the app. No indication of it’s open or closed, but hitting the open or close button in the smart things app will actuate the unit correct. Just no indication of open or closed in the status window.
Attempting to attach a screen shot of what it looks like on my iPhone.
Just tested mine - working fine w/ a brief (maybe 2 sec) delay. Also on iOs with this DTH. Showing ‘CLOSED’ when closed, ‘OPENING’ while opening, ‘OPEN’ when open, ‘CLOSING’ while closing. Also when it’s open the ‘CLOSE’ button is highlighted, when it’s closed the ‘OPEN’ button is highlighted.
I seem to remember seeing this though - I know I had to pair a couple of times when I set it up a few weeks ago to be sure it was working smoothly.
Another iOS/Android issue I believe. I don’t get the colors on the smaller tiles like you have in the first post (and I can’t see in the code where you have anything but white and blue for those tiles btw so not sure if things changed at some point) although my icons match yours on my iPhone. And then on my iPad the icons are as Andrew posted … The icon difference between iPhone and iPad has always made me wonder as I do not see that on any other handler/device. I cannot figure out how that can happen.
EDIT: I see now you updated the color scheme in December so ignore my comments about the colors.
All that said, Andrew’s main tile is odd showing grey and no text.
Thanks guys for the responses. I did load the device handler prior to adding the unit. I’ll remove/delete everything and start over again to see if that works this time. Won’t be at the unit again until next weekend, but will let you know how it turns out either way. Thanks again!
Following up, removed the device handler and the Dome Shut Off device from SmartThings and re-installed. Everything is working now. App shows Open, Opening, Closed, Closing all at the appropriate times based on the actual physical state of the unit.
One odd thing. I only get the refresh icon below the main status indicator. No Open or Close icons to press. If I press the main indicator (big blue/gray box), it toggles between open and closed, which works just fine for me. It just doesn’t match what I think is was intended in the device handler?
Went in and looked at it and you are correct, I was using the generic z-wave water shut off handler. So I went in and forced the valve to use the Dome device handler. And… I go right back to the original screen I posted. Everything is grayed out, valve will work if I hit open or close, but no status indication of opening or closing, open or closed.
Attached a screen shot of my settings of the device in the ide. What am I doing wrong?
When I pulled the valve up originally in the IDE, Type = z-wave water shut off, Version = Published
SmartThings Classic app for iOS, version 2.15.0 (Build 1434)
Tried using both published and self-published settings in the Version pull down. Same resulting screen in smartthings app.
I originally paired the device before installing this DTH - what worked for me was to go through the exclusion process (it’s in the manual - don’t have at hand) and do a fresh start - pairing after my DTH was loaded. YMMV - but just in case it’s useful. I found it’s a little touchy to pair.
Also - have you tried manually opening and closing it w/ the button on the device? I seem to remember that causing an update/sync for me once.
