[ST Edge] Driver for GE/Jasco Z-Wave Motion Switches and Dimmers - 24770, 26931, 26932, 26933

In the old DTH for these devices, there was an ability to set the default Dim level. I don’t see that option in the Edge driver. Is that something that can be implemented or am I missing how it can be done in the new driver?

Default Level

This command is exclusive to the GE Z-Wave Motion Sensor Dimmer Switch and it allows you to programmatically define the level of the switch when it turns on. This is useful to 'reset' the switch to a default level when it is turned off in case it was set lower the last time it was used. If you change this to number and it differs than how you have it set within the device's settings area, a small "!!" will appear in your dashboard to indicate this.


Default dim was moved from the settings menu to the detail view a while back, and is also available to be set through routines:

Well, duh…guess I missed that :-/

I see you found a solution, but you can set this up the same way as you were doing with webcore. Operation Mode is available to Routines, so just set one routine to change to Manual at 8pm and a second to change to Occupancy at 6am.

I am trying to add motion switches but upon addition they keep getting added as non-edge devices. I understand that ZW4006 is added, but the number of the switch is 2122B - Does that make a difference?

My apologies - My first time trying to add such a device. @philh30 - Thank you so much for your work.


P.S. - The edge drivers are downloaded on my hub.

Once it’s added, use the API Browser+ from @TAustin to check the fingerprint of the device. From there, you can check @philh30 driver fingerprints here to see if your device is included.

That’s the date code. It think it translates to being manufactured in 22nd week of 2021.

Do you have any custom DTHs installed? I think those are still pulling devices away from edge during inclusion.

If it’s on a DTH, you can check the raw description at ide.smartthings.com to see if it has a different fingerprint.

That might be true. Here is what I have in the Raw description

Raw Description zw:L type:1001 mfr:0000 prod:0000 model:0000 ver:5.39 zwv:4.54 lib:03 cc:5E,72,5A,73,27,25,2B,2C,70,86,71,60,8E,85,59,7A,56 epc:2

Your device is not registering its fingerprint properly as it’s all zeros. You’ll need to exclude the device and factory reset it then re-add it.


Thank you- That worked. :slight_smile:

I have not yet been brave enough to switch from my existing custom DH to this EDGE driver. Like a lot of us, I use Alexa for voice control for all of my ST devices.

After I make the switch to EDGE will I be able to use voice control to switch the mode back and forth between Manual and Motion triggers? Right now it drives me crazy when the lights turn off while I’m working on something without moving (especially if I’m doing something like slicing food with a sharp knife.)

So, you’re saying you want to switch from Occupancy or Vacancy mode to Manual mode via voice? How are you doing that today via Alexa?

You can definitely set operation mode with this driver, but that doesn’t seem to be exposed to Alexa.

That being said, you could create a virtual device in ST that you turn on/off with voice commands in Alexa. Then have ST Routines that switch between modes depending on the state of the virtual switch.

As far as I know there is no voice command to have Alexa change the mode, so currently I am not able to do this.

Are you suggesting that if I create a virtual switch then I could set the mode on the motion switch?

I seem to recall the 26933 having a parameter that could be adjusted that would affect the time period after being turned off that the switch would not report motion such that the switch wouldn’t turn on when you turn it off and are leaving the room. I can’t find this parameter in these Edge drivers. I also recall this parameter annoyingly applying to anytime the switch was turned off (motion and physical button push).

Did you found the drivers for the GE Portable Smart Motion Sensor that can be config?


I have recently moved my smarthome platform to Home Assistant. When I was on SmartThings I was using the stock SmartThings driver for the motion sensor but was able to change the config by using a driver from Mariano Colmenarejo. He has a driver called zwavecfg or something like that. It will allow you to access the configuration parameters of zwave devices on your network and change them. Using the driver I was able to change the motion timeout from 4 minutes to 1 minute. Enroll in his channel and you should be able to install that driver.

If you are using Phil’s driver, you’re probably talking about Motion Reset Time found in the settings.

Thanks for responding. Motion Reset Time appears to correspond to Parameter 15 (see http://manuals-backend.z-wave.info/make.php?lang=en&sku=26931/ZW4006&cert=ZC10-16105294), I’m looking to be able to edit Parameter 1, the timeout duration.

Thanks for pointing that out Phil. Actually what I’m looking for is not that either, and I’m beginning to wonder if what I’m looking for even exists on this switch, or I’m confabulating it from elsewhere. What I want is a parameter that while in occupancy mode after the light has been physically switched off dictates how long to ignore motion for so that the light doesn’t trigger back on as you’re walking out of the room.
