I added my ZSE42 with the edge driver. The driver doesn’t show up in the list when I edit it. It’s detected as a placeholder. When I look at it in the SmartThings mobile app, it’s reporting battery and dry/wet. I don’t know if the battery is correct since it’s reporting 100%.

On the devices page, the value for hub and device network ID are blank and it’s set to cloud.
I figured that out a while ago and if you check my channel page or the hub installed driver list in the mobile app you’ll see that I’m using it for the multisensor, multichannel switch, and switch drivers.
Unfortunately if you check the driver screen attached to the device you’ll see that the description field doesn’t get populated so adding official to it wouldn’t be useful enough to justify the amount of time it would take me to republish all the drivers…
The IDE will be going away soon. It’s not compatible with Edge drivers and the data the IDE shows for a device using an Edge Driver may be missing or be inaccurate. Don’t use the IDE to make changes to anything marked “placeholder” or you can break communications altogether. But the incorrect information in the IDE doesn’t affect how the device actually runs. So even if the IDE says it’s a cloud device, if it’s an Edge Driver it still runs locally.
See the community FAQ (the topic title is a clickable link):
The 500 series wall dimmers/switches will be supported, but there are a lot of devices in front of them so I’m not sure if they’ll be added before 9/30.
Those devices are supported by the built-in drivers so I highly recommend that users continue using the custom DTH or the built-in DTH so that they’ll get migrated to a functional driver automatically and you won’t lose any of the settings you’ve configured.
If you manually change the device to a driver ahead of time you’ll have to remove the device which will reset all the settings and you won’t be able to re-apply them until the device has been added to the custom driver.
nice! One thing to note if you’re currently using one of Kevin’s custom Groovy DTH: in theory SmartThings will automatically migrate your Zooz devices from the custom DTH to a custom Edge driver if you have the Edge driver installed before the migration. So in theory you don’t need to wreck all of your automations and things by removing and re-adding the Zooz device as longas you install the Edge drivers before the migration.
It’s still groovy, and honestly, I don’t remember if Kevin changed the official or if I edited at his direction. I’ll just compare with Zooz DTH.
Not sure Zen21 has Edge driver yet. I’m guessing there would be a generic Z-wave driver if I deleted the DTH.
I have several still in their boxes, and I can’t imagine there would be a point of powering them up and joining them to the hub. I suppose soon enough there will be a specific driver.
***Edit: Yeah, I had two versions of the DTH, but official DTH was in fact changed to use x3 up and down.
Now just hoping it will be a smooth Edge transition. I will be OK, for a while, losing scenes/taps (if it comes to that), but would really like to retain disable/enable relay in settings, and a single “press” or “pushed”, whichever it is.
Hi All, I have a house full of Zooz switches (Zen23/24/32/34/30/72/74, ZSE18/29). I think I’ve found the right spot for these questions…
I have DTH’s installed for each, and I’ve downloaded the edge drivers that are currently available (notated in bold above). Will these automatically update on 9/30, or I have the option now to exclude/re-include those today?
For the Zen 23/24s will there be an Edge Driver released? I don’t want to use the generic driver because I have a lot of scene control with these (double/tripple tapping etc.)
Thanks - Hopefully your answers will help others too.
