    HS's are cheaper and with the additional aspects of instant reporting and double tap associations, I would prefer to just switch all my current switches over and continue expanding buying HS versions.



    As an aside...

    I need to bite the bullet and buy HS but I keep waiting for the Alexa API to be confirmed solid and working. Meanwhile I use my Smartthings box and all the wonderful cloud issues they have.


    That's an interesting thought and curious if the GE could do the same. I think as long as the core zwave chip is the same, at least in theory some of the functionality would work. I highly doubt it though if the chip isn't at least zwave plus type.

    Ok, I finally got it added, had to put my right ankle behind my head well jumping on my left foot and pressing the include button to get it working, but finally got it added.

    I can say that the instant status and the scene taps do work from the remote GE switch the same as they do from the main. The screen shot is taken right after I triple tapped the aux switch.

    Dimming also works from the GE Aux switch.

    Not sure why the pain of adding it. I pulled the power from it and did a restart of my computer, updated to .67. Maybe that trifecta is what made it work.
    cool thanks

    Thanks Mark. The down ramp is different from the up ramp when controlled. To me this looks identical to the Jasco switch and there is the option there for both. So I would hope the same for this switch.

    Either way I will order more, but sure would be nice to make the wife happy .

    So far so good, everything is working as expected from the main switch and the aux. I really like the ability now to turn on and off my cabinet lighting from the same switch with the double tap.


    Now if I could only not have the switch blind me by blasting the lights on immediately, I will order more.

    Mark,
    Question for you. I notice when controlled from homeseer, this switch jumps up in brightness instantly, but when controlled to turn off, goes slow as expected. I see in the settings that I can only control the local speed. Can the brightness up be controlled for zwave control?

    I saw that .67 was in the beta area, so updated to it. Same results. I will call HS in the morning and sort it out and get back to everyone.

    Yea I am on 66. The funny thing is I have tried including and excluding it, even from the aux switch and it's seeing the commands.

    What's concerning is its saying it can't see the manufacture class and never adds it to the zwave network, but does add the devices to homeseer.

    I haven't updated in a while, but assuming you got the latest zwave plugin.

    Are you running .66 of the zwave plugin? It's needed for these switches.

    Cheers

    Good question. Do the HS version? I would guess all the smarts are in the main switch?

    Got my switch today and just added it. Left GE aux switch in on the other side. Worked just fine. Very happy with the switch.

    Does the GE slave support instant status, double tapping and so on?
