Wow. @blebson, I got the more advanced SmartPower Outlet functionality working now following your instructions. I wanted it with energy reporting on energy changes. Apparently when I added the device the first time, adding it under device type SmartPower Outlet, I got it stuck doing dumb energy reporting (only upon on/off event), even if I switched to device type Iris Smart Button and back.
I reset my Iris Smart Plug and followed the directions on the 1st post on this topic. Worked great at getting the great energy reporting functionality. I did set the device handler to SmartPower Outlet at the end of instruction #1.
However I couldn’t get the Z-Wave Repeater to connect in instruction #2. Definitely the plug would not go into pairing mode and make the light blink. I held it up to 10 seconds with no success. I tried other ways to get it to blink but no success. @blebson, do you have any other detail on how to do this?
@Paulrus, I sympathize with you. I struggled with resetting this. I swear it doesn’t work a normal way. I finally got it to reset by holding the button down while its plugged, but releasing the button about 1-2 seconds later immediately after the light just starts to blink. It then goes into blinking state, ready to pair. Can’t hold it until it blinks. Have to release after the first blink. Strange. Try that out. BTW, I think the Z-Wave Exclusion instructions are irrelevant unless you got the Z-Wave repeater paired and need to remove it to start over.
@Paulrus, also if you have already set this up as a plug and need to clear it out, remove the device in the app first (frees up the hub to pair to this plug again) before starting the pairing mode on the plug. Also I noticed my hub light was not blinking green when trying to connect (pair). I had to reset it.
