Zwave universal remote


(Longhorn84) #1

Anyone tried something like this to add on to their existing universal remote? http://www.universalremote.com/product_details.php?id=45&s=commercial&c=lighting&p=TRF-ZW1

Or something like this? Looks like they discontinued the line http://www.zwaveproducts.com/Logitech-Harmony-890-Z-wave-Universal-Remote-Control.html

Just seems logical to have a physical remote that can sync with smartthings (like the aeon minimote but with more functionality).

I have this: http://www.amazon.com/Z-Wave-Hand-Held-Remote-Control-LCD/dp/B0013V58CU

I use this to control my z-wave lights (dimmer and on/off switches).

I bought that but couldn’t get it to set up as a secondary controller. Seems like the new minimote will work as it integrates into smartthings. I returned that GE one, did you have to do anything special to get it to connect to the lights? I assume you also have the lights controlled by ST?

It is kind of a pain to get it paired and do not recall exactly what I did to get it working. I try not to make any changes with it just because of how touchy it was.
