I just got some new wall switches from z-wave.me today and jumped at the chance to set them up. Fast forward a few hours and I’m still working on the first one
I’ve got it included and I’ve set it up to work as an on/off switch. I got it to work directly on a device, but I want it to control a scene. So…I tried to set it up to “send scene”, which doesn’t do anything. Or so it seems. I set the association group to “_scene controller” and put the scene number in the text field. Updated the configuration and nothing happens. I then thought I’d try to control a VirtualSwitch, but it seems only physical devices show up in the list. I don’t even see how I can just push the button and have VeraLight pick it up and handle it.
Anyone got any tips for me? This one switch is supposed to be an “All on/off” switch. The rest of them can directly control a physical device, but not this one.
I’m all out of ideas, and the only relevant I’ve found through searching was someone saying this has been up several times - but I cannot find a single thread with relevant info.
Do you have the scene created that will turn all of the devices off right now? Once you have the scene created and working, just add a trigger that will run the scene when when the switch is turned off.
I have the scene and it’s working fine. Been using it for 6 months or so - but there’s no signal to intercept from the wall switch. At least not one I can find.[/quote]
You might want to first post what switch you bought. Also sounds like it might not be a “switch” at all. Sounds like your trying to describe a scene controller.
Nevermind I see you have this same question posted in several different posts all within an hour of each other.[/quote]
It’s the zwave.me wallc-s and I was just informed that it’s a controller not a switch. And yes - I even mentioned in one of the threads that I was semi-crossposting, but they’re all directed at different solutions so even though I normally try to not do it I felt it was defendable. Actually, I just started two threads and answered another one. Sorry if I was out of line, but I was trying to solve all three of my problems with two posts almost simultaneously.
Oh, well - think I found at least some of my problem. The controller registered as a GenericIO which hid some of the features it offers. I manualle changed to D_SceneController and suddenly got a whole lot of new options resembling the ones I’ve seen other people talk about. Still cannot get it to control a scene, though…

Thanks, but my problem is that nothing is registered by Vera from the controller. I did some testing with a very helpful member here and it just doesn’t register. The way I do it now is that I control a plug-in switch and then do regular polling intervals to set its state, and a scene using state changes from the switch to initiate scenes.
