Update: Make sure your device has firmware 1.7 as it seems versions below that are a little buggy.
Very cool device. Wall mountable and looks great. Micro USB rechargeable with ability to configure:
When making configuration changes you can either a) wait for the device to wake up and have the changes sync over. The wake up interval for this device is 24 hours so if you are the impatient type you can b) press the button on the back for a few seconds. This will wake the device up and the lights on the front will blink orange. At this point the controller will send over its configuration changes.
Edit: Forgot to mention that each button supports push and held. So the dual actually has 4 possible button presses and the quad has 8.
I don’t see these posted on thesmartesthouse.com’s website, but they are selling them through Amazon right now (at least the 4 button version).
The product looks really good! I was wondering, since you posted some pictures using the DH, can you configure the buttons using ST? And using ST, can you trigger actions on devices other than zWave that are things within ST? I know that the device standalone can control zWave product but I’m hoping it can operates other devices within ST.
Yes, any device that SmartThings supports. Even Zigbee & Wifi devices. The SmartThings hub will parse the button presses and then process automations that you have setup to respond to those button presses. You just need the appropriate SmartApp such as Smart Lighting, CoRE, Button Controller - Enhanced Lighting, etc.
That means that a button press on the device will send a signal to the hub. You can then capture that signal and use a smartapp, including the official smart lighting feature or core, and have the hub then send a command to any other device that SmartThings can control, regardless of protocol.
So the button controller and the end device don’t have to be using the same protocol, they just both have to be able to talk to the SmartThings hub.
That way a Z wave button controller, like this one or the Aeon minimote, could be used to turn on a zigbee lightbulb or a Wi-Fi light switch, as long as that second device can receive commands from the SmartThings hub.
Or you could have a zigbee button controller, like the SmartThings 3 toggle, and use it to control A zwave Relay or a Z wave switch.
You could also have a group of devices with some zigbee, some Z wave, and some Wi-Fi, again as long as they’re all controllable by the SmartThings hub.
It’s one of the main advantages of the SmartThings multiprotocol platform design.
It is a nice device and works just as I would expect. It is very modern looking as well.
@jeremykeen I will probably add sliding motions, but that really is a function best suited for direct association between devices. Cloud latency makes this functionality suboptimal when done otherwise.
