[OBSOLETE] Zooz RGBW Dimmer (ZEN31)

Once tested will your DTH be updated? I believe I am seeing the same issue.

I just published the new version, but please confirm that it fixes your problem and doesn’t break anything.

I won’t be converting the Zooz RGBW Dimmer DTH into an Edge Driver, but most of the functionality should work with a built-in driver once the Groovy platform is retired

I contacted Zooz support and this is the response:

The ZEN31 does not have an official driver yet; in the meantime, one of the users created a custom driver that will take this device local.
It can be accessed through this link: SmartThings. Add a little smartness to your things.

You’ll then need to install the “Z-Wave Bulb Mc” driver from the list, delete the current groovy handlers if you have them installed still, and re-include the ZEN31 to your system.

I don’t know why, but I am totally shocked that community programmers are having to “save” people like me. I’m even more shocked that a request for company support referred me to a community programmer. They owe you @Mariano_Colmenarejo! Thank you VERY much! It’s working for all my automation and control needs with the exception of Alexa. Alexa only sees this as a dimmable light with no RGB control.

Thanks, @jsdray

Why are they going to pay their developer to make the driver if it’s already made for free? :thinking:
I figure that when the migration is complete and they have more time they will do it and perhaps create child devices to control rgbw components by Alexa

@Mariano_Colmenarejo Quick question if you don’t mind… The control works great within the smartthings app. But is there something special about it or am I missing something for sharptools? There are a lot of configurable items in the settings and I’m not sure what they are. I get “error sending command” when I try to use the color picker in sharp tools.

Hi @jsdray

I don’t know if SharpTools can control secondary components and if that can be the problem.

Maybe @joshua_lyon can answer this for you.

Yes, SharpTools can control components other than the ‘main’ component.

It sends across the command setColor({"hue": XX, "saturation": YY}). Of critical note is it does not send the level across as part of the color map. I’ve seen some drivers require that in the past and it’s caused issues.

@jsdray if you want to send a note to support@sharptools.io with the approximate time (and timezone) of a time that you tried to control the color and got an error, I can try to pull the logs to take a closer look. :slight_smile:

Rookie mistake… I failed to resync after switching from DHT to Edge Driver…
You guys are awesome. Thank you very much @joshua_lyon and @Mariano_Colmenarejo

Can this controller be used with a tunable white LED strip? This would be a 3 wire strip that mixes just warm and cold white.

Hi @Typ44q
From the GetZooz website:

This device will only work with simple LED strips that don’t feature any wireless capabilities or don’t have addressable LED’s or tunable white LED’s. You can use a single color LED strip with this controller, a 3-channel RGB strip, or a 4-channel RGBW LED strip.
