- lock unlocked → contact open
- lock locked → contact closed
Default setting is NOT to synchronize.
A second Settings option allows the selection of either lock or contact for the dashboard icon.
Includes stock capabilities for switch, color, color temperature, and dimmer.
Includes stock capabilities for battery and power source, as well as controls to set each.
Driver Upgrading Notes
The driver will be automatically updated to your hub as usual. All existing virtual devices will continue to operate as-is under the updated driver.
Possible issues you may experience:
I don’t see the new device types listed in the create list
If you’ve waited patiently for the update to your hub, but the battery, door, & light devices are not available to select from the create-device button, then you may need to force a re-creation of your creator device. Do this by deleting the creator device (not your virtual devices!), and then get it re-created with an Add device / Scan nearby. The new device will be named ‘vEdge Creator V2.3’, and you should now see the new virtual device types to create.
The driver update seems to have broken things; my virtual devices have stopped responding
Occasionally there are Edge problems installing updated drivers that may result in a hang of the driver and its devices. If you think this may have happened to you, then rebooting the hub will usually fix it.
