Try do make the Aeotec ”Button” to work. Anyone no how?
It is not part of the hardware supported by Homey, why should it work?
However, Homey clearly lacks a simple little button in Z-Wave, as there are plenty Aqara’s in Zigbee… There is just nothing simple, small and reliable in Z-Wave, it’s a shame…
Thomas can leave a note @ Aeotec support, and it might get added to the supported devices.
About zwave buttons…
These are not zwave?
As already mentioned, the button isn’t supported by the app yet.
But I guess as a generic Zigbee device it should work, but without any extra features like Double Pressed and Held. So you can try to add the button via Devices → + → Homey → Zigbee.
And contact Aeotec and ask for adding the button.
Thank you very much for the examples. Yes, it’s in Z-Wave, but these buttons cost 5x more than an Aqara button in Zigbee, discreet, white, flat and efficient (and less than 10 dollars…). Even for €20, I can’t find such a button in Z-Wave. The Philio costs almost €70 here in Switzerland. As for the Fibaro The Button, I’ve had several and they are absolutely unreliable.
But that is not the fault of Homey/Athom. Do you know any little, simple, cheap, reliable Z-Wave button?
‘Z-wave’ devices are in general more expensive than wifi/zigbee/BT/433MHz iot devices.
It’s getting off topic here.
