im confused, so i buy this dimmer, but then do i have to buy your DH or does the generic z-wave dimmer DH work?

It works with the generic DH. But if you want to change paramters on the dimmer, use functions like double click, you have to use this handler. It works very well

@RBoy Any idea why I can’t add any of my Heatit Zdim to a Light Group in the new app?

It’s a bug with the new ST app, added a workaround for it.

Heatit Z-Dim Rotary Dimmer Device Handler - v01.00.04

  • Workaround for new ST app not allowing devices to be added to a lighting group
  • Better support for reporting button usage
  • Report central scenes as button numbers
  • Corrected text in device preferences page

After updating to this DTH you may need to exclude and re-pair the devices for the lighting group changes to take effect in the new ST app.
