I have mounted a Aeotech heavy duty switch in my garage to controll and measure a electric car charger. The Aeotech app does not support this switch. Is somebodey working on it? I hope so, because its a greate product
I just bought a Homey and tried to link it up to one of these (AU version). The beta version of the Aeotec supports it and it pairs to the z-wave network OK. Unfortunately, Homey still fails to recognise it and drops it in as a generic switch binary. Switching them on/off seems to do nothing Any ideas?
Yes, I installed the beta version and I can see the heavy duty smart switch as a device listed under the Aoetec device, however when I pair with the smart switch Homey brings up a message saying it is an unrecognised device and then adds it as a generic switch.
Hi @danone, I found in Homey that the product type ID was 515. Managed to install the cli, edit the json file and now Homey recognises the device. Horray! The next problem I have is that it’s not responding to commands. I’ve got it sitting right next to Homey and when I click the button, nothing happens. In geek mode it says the command has been sent successfully. This is exactly the same behaviour I saw when it was added as a generic device. Any ideas?
Sorry for multiple posts, but would my z-wave issues have anything to do with the fact that I’m still running my old vera2 hub at home? So I’ve got two z-wave networks running here. They are not connected. I haven’t finished migrating devices across yet. It’s probably a long-shot, but I thought I’d ask.
@Simon_Willis If you would have gone on Github to create an issue regarding the AUS Product Id as suggested above, you would have found that there is already an issue created a couple of weeks ago describing the same behaviour you experienced with latest beta. So it is a known problem with latest beta.
This forum is not actively monitored by Athom, so please visit Github and under the above issue, write your experience, too. Describe as much detail as possible including Homey’s firmware version, Aeotec app beta version etc.
In regards with Vera interfering with Homey. Theoretically, no! Imagine a block of appartments where everyone owns a z-wave controller.
