I just created a DTH for the new GE Z-Wave Plus On/Off Switches.
Option to change the indicator status from the main page
Commands to change the indicator status (useful for changing from CoRE)
Option to change the inverted setting from the main page
Commands to change the inverted setting (useful for changing from CoRE)
Ability to add associations to groups 2 and 3 from the configuration page
Exposes the double-tap feature of the switch as a button (useful for triggering events in CoRE)
I have noticed one thing, the blue indicator light won’t toggle on at all.
I could be a problem with the switch its self, but i thought it was worth mentioning to you. To see if anyone else was able to get it to turn on.
I have been able to turn mine on. The tile in the lower left corner controls the behavior for the indicator (On when the switch is on, On when the switch is off, or Never on). I have tested all three settings. If you can’t get it working with my DTH you could try the standard one and see if it works.
It is not available in the non-plus version. In fact for the dimmer version of this switch there is an older firmware that doesn’t include the double tap. For the non-plus version of the switch you can use the smart-app Double Duty to get the double tap functionality although it isn’t 100% reliable. The non-plus version only has the “lifeline” association group 1 used to notify the hub of status changes but the plus version adds group 2 (that directly controls another device when the switch is turned on or off) and group 3 (that directly controls another device when the switch is double-tapped). This DTH adds the hub to the group 3 association group and then triggers the button press events when it gets the Basic Set commands from the switch.
Love this device handler, but did find one potential issue that drove me batty. I was able to convert existing devices just fine, but when I added a new GE z-wave plus switch, it would not pair. I finally noticed an error in the log. I had to delete your device handler, pair the device (actually had to exclude first because the pairing must have made it part way thru), and then re-add the handler to all my Z-Wave plus devices. Any ideas what is going on?
I am not sure. I have my one plus switch installed and linked to a complicated CoRE piston so I don’t want to remove it. I was planning to buy another one in a couple of weeks, I can order it earlier and do some troubleshooting with that one. Thanks for letting me know.
Nice device handler although I’m not completely understanding what is needed in group 2 or group 3. When you say hex format of the ID, you mean of the “Device Network ID”? Also how are you adding a core piston to yours? I have moving my pistons over to webcore and can see this DH being helpful with the double tap feature…
The only GE Z-Wave Plus switch currently have is the one in the CoRE piston so when I remove the device to test adding it back I will mess up my piston. It did occur to me that I can possibly do some testing using the GE Z-Wave Plus dimmers that I have. I needed to place an order with Amazon today for something unrelated and was going to add a switch but they are currently out of stock. I will let you know if using the dimmers to test works out or not, if not I can order a switch direct from Jasco, but I prefer not to they are slow and don’t have free Prime shipping.
