    Actually, what I posted was incorrect. We send a multilevel report in the new firmware, this updates HS immediately, but what you need is a "basic set" to be sent in order to control other devices. What you can do is create an event in HS that triggers on the switch being "set" a value, then send an On or Off as needed to the other device you want to control.

    What firmware do I need? Switches I have now are at 5.14. Homeseer allows me to set associations but they don't work to run remote switches. If I associate a Cooper switch to the WD100+ the Cooper switch can run it so the WD100+ can receive associations. If I associate two WD100+ switches, however, nothing happens. The WD100+ does not send normal association signals to run remote switches.

    Also, I would put my vote in for a setting to disable the LED lights. Since my switches are all switching remote loads the LEDs have no relationship to the light being switched which is annoying.

    Thanks for your help

    It is in the latest shipping products, but there is an issue updating older firmware. I expect a fix any day. I would open a helpdesk ticket so we can track and update you when its ready.

    Any news on the firmware update which will enable direct association? That turns out to be pretty important for my application. I have light switches in the attic communicating with remote switches on the walls. I want the house to function at some level even if Homeseer goes down or is unavailable and I can't really have orphan lights that can only be turned on and off if homeseer is running. I like the WD100+ better than the Cooper Electric switches but the direct association problem may be show stopper. There was a post in November that referenced an update coming soon.

    Rich, will you also add the option to leave the bottom LED on when the dimmer is turned off?

    Mark,
    Put my hat in as another looking forward to this possibility. Light Almond is a major WAF and really is what's stopping me from pulling the trigger on a bunch of switches. I take it this more than a $2000 investment for you guys.

    Do these switches support direct association or not? The documentation is super confusing, some saying it does, others saying that group one is for deletion only whatever that means.

    Since they are not made by HS or even strictly for HS that they don't have to much pull or options in the matter, which is probley why they were given a huge production number to even request a different color.
    And Dragon Tech seems to have disappeared, or at least appears to no longer be importing switches to the USA. http://dragontechind.com/

    I'll have to keep an eye out for similar hardware to grab plastic paddles from, or maybe just test on some cheap normal switches first.

    I'd like to play around around with automotive dye (SEM Color Coat, etc), but it's kind of expensive to do so right now since the plates are not sold separately.

    Back in March you though there was a possibility of offering "Light Almond". Is Homeseer any closer to adding "light almond" paddles? Other manufactures have been slow rolling out Z-Wave Plus products. GE just released some Z-Wave Plus switches in other colors, but no dimmers yet. I hate to buy "old" tech just to get the color I need, so I continue to standby
