Device Type for Quirky / GE Tapt Switch
Using a dual load Zigbee Device Type written by @JohnR I have created a starting point for the Tapt Switch. I’ve read this device can control a load and also a scene/mode. Not sure how the second part works but I’ve gotten the switch to be controllable.
1- Login to the IDE and create a custom device type using the device type for from my github https://github.com/mattjfrank/Quirky-GE-Tapt-Switch-Smart-Things-Device-Type/blob/master/Quirky-GE-Tapt-Switch.groovy once created, save and publish.
2- Add Tapt to SmartThings by pressing and holding both buttons for 5 seconds while ST is looking for new devices.
3- The device should show up as “Quirky GE Tapt Switch” If it doesn’t manually change it to that device type.
[edit 1/11/15 changed steps, fingerprint should allow automatic device type selection]
Work In progress
1- Status update to ST when manually pressing buttons
2- figure out how/if 2nd button operation can be used with ST as it can with Wink
3- figure out how/if it can be used as a dimmer with ST as it can with Wink
This custom device type is no longer needed. Your best method is to remove the device from ST, remove the published Device Type and add to ST. It will add as a ZigBee Switch which does on/off and instant reporting.
This will allow it to work as standard on/off switch controlling a load. If you do not want it to control the load just cap the load wire during install and wire your load direct.
Some places on the internet refer to issues with the switch not staying “connected” in those cases you should be able to connect your switch to a wink hub and do a firmware update to the switch.
