    OK - so now I see what my actual problem was - at the end, when inserting the "Dual prong" actuator / button presser - One of the things that occurs here is placing the device in a different "Mode" of sorts? When the fob was not working, pressing the buttons on it caused the LED (on the fob) to begin flashing. Depending on which button was pressed, it would flash continuous green or red until it timed out. When in the proper "mode" pressing any of the 4 buttons causes a one-second green lighting of the fob's LED.

    OK ill watch the video again.

    My Root device status light does not change when holding buttons down or momentary as shown in the video. Events created do not trigger.

    Curiously, the video mentions how the Fob's light will continue to flash after the inclusion and to then press both Mode and Learn buttons momentarily to complete. My light does not flash, but instead is on solid after it is added.

    I've reset the HS Smartstick+, reset the keyfob, reinstalled Homeseer from scratch, all to no avail. Is this a bad keyfob?

    I, like many others tried with the wrong plugin. I upgraded to 3.0.1.54 yesterday and still cannot get the panic button to add correctly.

    Finally got to work, after some wrestling!

    It would have been great if in the video, you'd mentioned that it required the beta HS3 Z-Wave plug-in 3.0.1.41 or higher... I spent nearly an hour trying to get the same results shown in the video, until I finally came here.

    But, you might be glad to know that the keyfob WILL work with a Sigma Designs UZB v3.95 (ZDK 6.51.2) controller.

    I have yet to play with event triggers, but at least the setup works with a HS3 on PC and controller other than the Zee.

    Love this, just did this with my mini mote.

    one thing that would be cool is if when you add one of these devices that it would create the events for you for each button.

    yes i can do this myself but its very time consuming.

    i feel this would reduce the barrier of entry to some of the cooler stuff HS3 can do.

    I believe Mark explains it in the video. The status changes to Button Held instead of Button On.

    Cheers

    I did load the Beta and then removed and re-added the KeyFob and I now see the buttons in addition to the battery. However the operation of the KeyFob is spotty at best. It will report some button presses or hold downs on rare occasions but most of the time it doesn't detect or report them. Due to some other pressing engagements I won't have time to troubleshoot for a while.

    However I do have another artifact from my original tries to add the device with the non-beta ZWave plugin and that is an orphaned node as shown below. Any idea's how to get rid of that? I am not sure if that is causing my current issues with the KeyFOB or not.

    When you say 500 series do you mean Gen5? I have 2 of them but I don't see a series mentioned anywhere just Gen5. After many tries I finally got the KeyFob included into my network but I don't get the same features as you show in the video. If I go into my root class on the Status Graphics tab it shows my a battery status, not the individual buttons as you showed. If I look at the Node information on the ZWave tab I see this below. Any idea's how to get the buttons to show up instead of the battery? Is there some other requirement?

    Thanks
