    HomeSeer Device in Node-Red - Can't set "Feature"

    I am trying my very first Node-Red flow, HomeSeer Server in Node-Red seems to be ok since I can see the drop-down list of devices. But when I select my Z-Wave living room light (actually a z-wave switch with a light plugged into it), I cannot do anything with the "Feature" box as it just give me the red circle with a line through it. Am I missing something here?

    Ultimate goal was simply to have a device status change (ie. door opens, door closes, etc.) have Alexa tell me something. I can do a flow to have Alexa speak when I force (inject) the flow, but I want the device status change to do this. HS4_Device_Setup.doc

    Is this a HS3 device? There may not be any features for the device so you are all set. Try adding a debug node on the output and update your flow then change the device on and off and see if you get the status updates.

      Single item z-wave devices such as light switches do not currently have features. They reportedly will after the HS4 z-wave plugin is used.

        So is there a HS4 Z-Wave Plugin available or is this a "TBD release"?

          To the best of my knowledge and belief it is TBD.

            This is the very simple flow that when I deploy it, the status in the debug (and on the device block) changes, but just turning the device on / off does not automaticly see the updated status. I am sure there is something very simple that I am missing. I am guessing it is whatever needs to monitor / listen etc to the status of the device.

              The blue dots at the top right of each node suggests these have been changed and not deployed. Please Deploy ythe flow and see if changing the device reports the change. Normally a flow is triggered by a change in a Homeseer device from whatever point that device is located in the flow. Meaning any nodes prior to the HomeSeer node would be ignored.

                Only time the status shown on the device or in the debug message msg.status changes is when I make a change to the flow and hit the deploy button. I can change the device status (ie. turn light on/off with HS4) as many times as I want and the node-red HSDevice never sees the change.

                      Looks to me like you are missing the colon :

                      it should be http://192.168.200.220:1880/homeseer/webhook

                        OK, think I see what I was missing. I needed an "inject" node to sync the HS4 device status to the red-node device status. See if below makes sense:Click image for larger version

                          No this is not needed if the webhook is correct. Did you change it?

                            I have not touched it, just took a screen shot of what it was.

                            I found the "sync" information here: https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-...ntrib-homeseer

                            Is there a way to "test" the webhook (besides just watching it NOT update the status)? ie. any debug logs etc for the webhook from a HS4 point of view?

                              Your webhook is wrong.
