    I am curious, I have several of these (Dragon brand) and wonder if I could update the firmware to HS version instead? I would be willing to lose a switch just to find out.

    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.

        Got one of the bulbs and installed it yesterday. Network wide inclusion worked great via z-tool+ and a z-net. It's on a bedside lamp and replaced a module. So far it works great!

          Adjust hi/low dim levels

          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
            Cheers,
            Bob

                GE makes one that works pretty well, I have a couple. Personally I would like a dimmer type vs just the 3 modes.

                  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.

                    I just want to add my vote for this feature also. Odd that it works at the switch and not through HS3.

                      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.

                        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.

                          Beginning the replacement of all my switches, had a nice box show up yesterday (wife may not be too pleased)

                            Wow I am sure HS loves you!! Maybe you will have some pull to help get the ramp issue fixed

                              WD100+

                              This a great switch and I plan to start to switch out to the 100's have two now.
                              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).
