If you look at the production Z-Wave lock fingerprints.yml file, you’ll see the vast majority of lock models are commented out, while the same file on the Beta channel shows those locks as uncommented (and therefore currently active):
As you would expect, the production channel only has a few locks currently supported, as clearly they are still testing out some of the more complex functionality on the Beta channel.
If you subscribe to the Beta channel, you can use a pre-release version of the drivers and give your feedback to Samsung on what works and what doesn’t; if you don’t subscribe to the Beta channel, Samsung will eventually send you the Production driver once they finish their development and QA and your specific device is supported (no longer commented in the fingerprints.yml file).
I’m choosing to not use the Beta drivers, I have Kwikset and Yale Z-Wave locks that are not yet supported on the production branch. I’ll wait until they push out the production drivers, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the developers will be responsive if any bugs crop up in those drivers.
Thank you for that detailed explanation with the links. That is what I thought as well regarding the beta. That’s why I was wondering if eventually my system would get switched over from beta to production once the code was approved.
I did use the link provided by @TonyD to the Beta channel, which I assume is somehow the same as the one you gave. Yours is the beta files on Github, whereas his was to a Samsung site that starts with “callaway.smartthings.com”. Not sure if they are the same or not.
So far the beta driver seems to work properly. Or at least any hiccups I’ve seen are no different than before. Things like the history being delayed before it appears,
Has anyone determined if there is a 3 code limit to the smart Lock Guest Access? I’ve sucessfully installed 2 locks, one FE469 AND ONNE Kwikset. However, i can’t get the Life app to accept more than 3 codes. I get a “Something went wrong while creating the code. Try again” error.
How many max on each lock. I’m stuck with 3 on each. However, i think i have some legacy codes in the lock that may be duplicates of what I’m trying to add, but these legacy codes are not showing up in SLGA. Also, the lock routine maker does offer the option to unlock if certain conditions are met. So frustrating!
I have a kwikset zigbee 914. I have tried everything with no luck. I can lock and unlock the door with the guest access smart app but when I try to add a code it says no locks online. I have been back and forth with SmartThings support since December but they keep having me uninstall and reinstall it.
