    On the ZWave tab of the root device for the new switches the Firmware Update section says:

    Current Firmware: Manufacturer = HomeSeer Tech Version: 5.13

    So they likely did some customization of the firmware. They are essentially the same price, and may work better with Homeseer than the Dragons presuming they made updates to the firmware. I'm supporting the hard working folks at Homeseer by purchasing all my switches from them.

    Will firmware updates be free?

    Hi Mark,

    I'm largely happy with the 12 switches I have been using the past two weeks and about ready to buy them for the rest of the house. Just wondering as things like the configurable remote ramp rate get fixed, will Homeseer be providing firmware updates to existing switch owners? Any idea how frequently updates might be published?

    Thanks,
    John

    My bulb had a dragon logo on it.

    Yes this is very true, but I have been bitten by the recent bugs with the event engine that Rich as been working on with set to. It seems to have all been resolved though with the latest releases.

    It's a valid point if you have things that need to be managed regardless of the switches current position (if that makes sense?!?).

    Another thing, if you aren't getting the devices to create for the switch, a couple things to check. One you have to be at least on .66 of the Zwave plugin (current beta is 67 which I am using). I also had a lot of issues initially installing this switch and ended up removing power and starting over completely before it finally went (it's further up in this chain if you want details).

    It is a great switch, I especially like the led for the dimmers on the left side. I will be buying more of them as the money tree starts to replenish.

But I have mine setup to turn on the cabinet lights in the kitchen if I just turn the switch on (also turns on main lights its feeding normally). I also setup so that if you double tap up, the cabinet turn on, and double tap down, they turn off. The double tap doesn't affect the main load, which is really nice.

    Can you provide instructions (step by step) on how to create the two and three click events. I have tried and am missing something.
    Again you hit a home run with this switch.......

    First of all the switch will create 3 devices and they will look something like this:


    So, just create an event where the central scene device value "is set to" (your choice or 2-presses, 3-presses or press & hold).

    what about writing a scrip that sends a set of incremental increases/decreases when the load is turned on/off through HS? should be able to mimic a ramp up/down effect.

    Ramp rate control would be great. Glad to see the five-packs for sale in the store too! I've got a five-pack on the way and will buy more if these work out well.

    At this point, "on" ramp rate is adjustable for local control only. We may be able to change this in a future firmware release.

    On the Cooper rf9540s, you could adjust the low and high dim levels to compensate for bulbs having different dim ranges. On the WD-100s, I have bulbs that are near full brighness but showing only 5 lights on the HS dimmer.

    It would be nice to be able to set a high and low dim value so that full brightness of the bulb shows all the lights on the switch and barely on would show only one light.

    Mark,

    Any plans to make a switch to control a ceiling fan?
    High, medium and low settings
    I would be in for 6 of them if they existed

    Looks like they has turned into a feature request thread!

    The Cooper switch includes a nice trim feature to compensate for flickering in older LEDs. Fortunately, the newer bulbs aren't as prone to this. Of course, the Cooper switches are also $20 more and are not Z-Wave Plus!

    No plans for a fan controller or split fan/light switch at this point.
