So I purchased 3 of these (100+ each) to work with my smart things hub. Talking to Leviton, they don’t work together.
Here is my Goal:
I am converting every switch in my house (62 of them) over to Zwave and integrating them with the smart things hub and Alexa.
I have 4 places that had 4 way switches. I don’t need those anymore so my thought was install the VRCZ4 in those areas and I could control other lights from those locations (be in the kitchen and turn on the front porch).
So I have straight power going to these locations and have removed them from the 3-way that they used to be connected to.
Is there ANY device that I can use 3 or 4 buttons on that will allow me to program whatever “remote switch” I want on them?
Any help would be needed. I am almost done with this project and this is my final task.
I ordered and received 1 of the S version switchs (Leviton VRCS4-M0Z Vizia RF + 4 Controller).
I read the info on the post and MOST of it makes sense. I have the stiech installed with just power (no load).
I don’t understand how to: To use the scene control buttons, you need to go into the api and reassign it from a ZWave remote to my Z-Wave Scene Controller device type. (The device type is available on github at: https://github.com/bdahlem/device-type.Z-Wave-Scene-Controller) Now when you press the buttons, the remote should report which button was pressed. You may need to open up the device tile and press the configure button.
I just committed a first-cut DTH and SmartApp for the Leviton VRCZ4-M0Z, adapted from the VRCS4 modules by @ygelfand.
They seem to be working perfectly for on/off with my various Philips Hue bulbs and strips – still have to look at adding dimmer functionality. I’ve also left (most) of @ygelfand’s Z-Wave code in place, so it should be possible to support both Z-Wave Direct Association and plain-old SmartThings integration.
Will update the repository if/when I get dimmer functionality added.
I’d be curious to see if they work for your 3 VRCZ4-M0Zs?
Sure, I’d be happy to talk – just let me know when/where to call.
FWIW, it took me a lot of documentation-reading, poking around, and a great many log.debugs to make sense of what’s going on…and some of the architecture just isn’t straightforward (despite the mostly excellent docs).
In the meantime, though, I think my devicetype handler and smartApp should work for you as-is. Have you tried them yet?
