Good morning smart things community,
I am trying to work through an implementation problem and wanted to see if you all could help.
I am needing to make a large number of virtual switches using the Leviton DZ1KD-1BZ dimmers. Due to the wiring in my house there are about 10 dimmers that need to be installed in a wiring closes and then I need to place the slave / accessory ends of the virtual 3 way switches at various locations in the house.
I was looking at using a aeon labs minimote to create an association between the master and accessory switches but it sounds like that will not work because the commands are not passed over the zwave network, the devices need to be in close proximity for direct connection.
I also looked at using the smart lighting app to create a hub controlled virtual switch but that does not support ‘chasing’ dimmer levels only on and off.
Are there any other custom smartthings apps or settings anyone can think of that would allow me to create a virtual 3 way switch where the commands are sent over the zwave network? I can live with a second or two delay.
