First of all apologies because I am sure that somewhere there already exists the answer to this however I can’t find it after a lot of googling. I suspect the answer is I need the right DTH and I may have to write one but I havent written DTHs yet and I don’t really understand Zwave enough I now realise.
Background: I have a Duwi Zwave Remote , which is normally a standalone controller in a zwave network. I know this is not a great thing, and as it is a scene controller I know thats even worse, however bear with me as what I am looking to do is (as detailed in link  and see next post for link 3 and 4) use association to directly link the remote to the ST hub. I believe then it can be seen by the ST system as buttons when using association to ensure presses are passed to the hub not out to zwave devices. This would work perfectly as I see button press events (as I can then use pistons to do things with those events)
Now, I freely admit to being a little out of my depth here so if something doesn’t make sense I probably don’t understand it properly. In all the forum links @JDRoberts nearly answers this but not quite as I am missing something basic I think!
Fundamentally I am at a loss to how I actually go about linking the remote to ST not as a secondary controller - because if I do inclusion then the remote is seen as a secondary controller. This may not matter as it doesn’t actually affect how ST works with it. The remote has buttons for inclusion, exclusion and association (mainly for it to include/exclude as a controller I expect not as a zwave device would). So, should I just be able to change to a default DTH or is a new one needed, and if so do I need to write one handler for this. I see a button device is part of the ST list already but this thing has 10 buttons.
So, in short I feel like I am so close but so far away. I have missed something fundamental…or what I am doing isn’t actually possible (the remote was cheap from Vesternet so it was an experiment anyway)
Any suggestions welcome
