INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Device handler installation instructions can be found here. Once the device handler is installed, pair the device with the hub:

PAIRING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make sure the device is within 5ft of the hub and sometimes rebooting the hub helps before pairing and keep the ST mobile app open
  • Press the + button the SmartThings app to initiate the pairing
  • Press the top I and O buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds and then release them (the LED should turn on and after 10 seconds it should blink 6 times)
  • It should complete pairing within 30 seconds the device should show up on the ST app. If it doesn’t show up, reset the device, reboot the hub, bring the device closer and try again

EXCLUSION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make sure the device is within 5ft of the hub and sometimes rebooting the hub helps before pairing and keep the ST mobile app open
  • Start the device removal or exclusion process on the SmartThings app
  • Press the top I and O buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds and then release them (the LED should turn on and after 7 seconds the LED should blink 7 times)
  • If it doesn’t exclude, try to reset the device

FACTORY RESET

  • Press the top I and O buttons simultaneously for atleast 10 seconds and then release them. The LED should turn on and then blink 4 times.

NOTES

  • When a button reports an event (pressed or held), the Main Button reports the event along with the button number. The child button reports that event using button number 1. This allows the device to be used with apps which support multiple buttons (using the main button and button numbers) and which don’t support multiple buttons (using the respective child button).

Just Z-wave devices?

Corrected, you can control any device connected to your SmartThings hub either using custom Smartapps which support buttons or the built in automation rule triggers in the new ST app (for Pressed and Held).

Do these appear to be EU Z-Wave only? No US Z-Wave frequency listed?

Hey there. These buttons are currently sold in the European region. You can send in a request to HeatIt support about your interest for a US version. My understanding is that they are considering US versions for some of their products. It always helps to hear directly from the customers.

Will it work with the ST Classic app?

Yes the device handler works with all apps and all ST hubs. Note that the ST app just shows the button status. You need a SmartApp or Automation to make use of it.

Just tested this, but it seems a bit buggy. Everything looks to be in place in smartthings, but when you try to add an action for the button it doesn’t let you choose. It just goes back to the Main menu for the button. But you can choose action for the main button, but then it does the same thing for all the other buttons on the controller, and when I tried using it for turning the light on/off, it turns it on and off again. Tle light doesn’t stay on.

It’s working fine on the iOS ST app, this is a bug with the Android ST app which appears to be having the issue.

You should report that to ST support (support@smartthings.com). The are all related to the automation actions which is a feature of the new ST App and not related to the DTH.

You can also use WebCoRE, CoRE or any SmartApp which supports buttons to create custom actions.

Thankfully you are right. Ironically it was working when I configured it on the iphone and not my S10+
