Hi. I’m having pains in my z-wave…
There seems to be a pattern regarding status updates.
My telldus wallplugs, works perfectly - probably the most reliable device i have, when it comes to updating their status. When switched on by either their local button or a associated device - they simply never fail. Until i install the APP for the device - then it doesn’t work.
And my zipato bulb2’s - same story, different day. No status updates, at all.
Something must be hard for developers to implement - maybe status reports should be handled by Homey, not the app.
I have created issues on github for the apps, but i understand that people don’t want to fiddle around with these things in their spare time. The open nature of Homey just becomes annoying when these things happen. I’m using my telldus devices without the app, to have them working like they should, with the bulbs, this is not an option - i would be missing more or less all the features, without the app.
When changing status via flows, Homey just cheats and updates the device status in the database - but direct associations is what makes z-wave so great. And direct association is still a bit flawed in this regard.
