Update 4/27: The DTH is now in its own GitHub Repo. Easy to update and install. No code changes made.
I’m pleased to release the Device Handler for the GoControl Smart Wireless Light Switch (Model: WA00Z-1). It’s a device that fits over your existing light switch and provides 2 buttons that can control anything. It requires no wiring and works great. I essentially call this “The Renter’s smart light switch”. It can be bought on Amazon [here] (http://www.amazon.com/GOCONTROL-WA00Z-1-Z-wave-Scene-controller-Switch/dp/B01BKWG9XS), more info is available [here] (http://www.nortekcontrol.com/gocontrol-detail.php?productId=1774).
The DTH will allow the buttons to be used in any SmartApp that works with buttons. The top button is assigned as button 1 and the bottom button is assigned button 2. Hold events are working as well as a holdRelease event. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
Github Installation (recommended, easier to update):
For easier updating, add the GitHub repository in your IDE account:
- Owner: ajpri
- Name: ST-GoContWirelessSwitch
- Branch: master
After this, just Publish the DTH and pair the switch cover.
Installation (before pairing):
- Go to the “My Device Handlers” section of the IDE.
- Click “Create New Device Handler”
- Click “From Code and paste the code from the GitHub link. Click Create.
- Click Publish > For Me.
- The Handler is ready to use. Put the hub to “Find new things” on the app. Pull the battery tab and press any button on the GoControl Switch. The device will pair.
