    Wow. Those have sold like hotcakes. Obviously one of the most desired feature-sets with the right price point. Nice work HS, but ramp up that production quickly.

    Does the device in HS report the taps when you double tap the paddle?
    I left it disconnected overnight. This morning I was able to exclude it and include it again. It now works as expected and all of the settings work. It is a little slower updating status than the Cooper it replaced, but otherwise it is just fine.

    For the record all of the devices I am replacing with the new HS devices have excluded properly,much further away than 10 feet. They are Cooper and Jasco devices.

    I think this one is bad. It also doesn't report instant status and will not initiate an exclusion. I noticed that when I tried to adjust the step level from 1 it would just freeze up, so I thought I would exclude and include it again. I power cycled it, still no go. It rescans without error. It is controllable by HomeSeer, but doesn't report the scene changes or a change in status on the multilevel device. My Z-Net did not see the process initiated. It is 10 feet from the controller. I'll get a fresh start tomorrow, but it looks like I am 0 for 2 on these switches.

    Mine are definitely not working the way you describe. Mine are working like I believe you expect them to:

    Am I missing something? Is my switch not working properly, or is this the result of the stuck ramp rate? I thought it worked like the Jasco dimmer before I included it, where a press and hold of the top or bottom paddles while it is on adjusts the dim level.

    Right now a single tap on top returns it to last level, a single tap on the bottom turns it off. A press and hold of the top when it is on at any level sends it to full brightness. A press and hold of the bottom when on, turns it off. I assumed that there would be a way to control the brightness locally.

    All of the scenes report properly.

    I really cannot see any way to do this with events that will meet the approval of other members of the household.

    Mine are definitely not working the way you describe. Mine are working like I believe you expect them to:

    - Single tap on top returns to last level
    - Single tap to bottom turns it off
    - Long press on top increments light level until released
    - Long press on bottom decrements light level until released
    - Double and Triple tap on top/bottom give the expected 4 additional control points from the scenes

    I am running core .291 and Z-Wave .77

    My dimmers are showing:
    Z-Wave Lib Version 4.05 (ZDK 6.51.6)
    Application Version 5.13
    Hardware Version 255

    Don't know whether this helps other than to confirm that my experience is not the same as yours

    Cheers
    James

    That is a problem with the Z-Wave plugin, it will be fixed in the next update.

    I get HS=HomeSeer, and WS = Wall Switch and WD = Wall Dimmer, etc..; but what is the 100+ about?
    100 is just a model number... you know... like:
    • PRO-100
    • HSM100
    • ADIO-100


    The "+" refers to Z-Wave Plus. Years ago, we had the original SmartStick. Now, we have the SmartStick+. We also used to have Z-Tool... now we have Z-Tool+

    That may be the case with mine as well. I am impatient and after ten minutes they were still slow. The other thing that drove me to exclude/include is the absolute fact that my first was not right until I went through the process.

    If you have a lot of events tied to the switch, it might be easier to leave it under the original inclusion, if it is functioning properly.

    Will all switches come with this new firmware from this point on or will we have to upgrade once the switch is installed?

    Now that the first batch is out in the wild and has amazing reviews...It's time to start ordering some of these!
    Bryan - Anything manufactured after today will have the new firmware by default. However, earlier units can be updated pretty easily.
