  • Introducing Z-Tool+

    Z-Tool+ is our new mobile-based Z-Wave network setup tool. The app runs on your mobile device and features inclusion, exclusion and naming functions to get your devices added quickly and easily.

    If you've ever had to add or remove devices using the HS3 web interface on a mobile phone, you will DEFINITELY appreciate this new tool. No more panning, pinching, scrolling and zooming - just click the add or remove buttons.

    Z-Tool+ will be rolled out next week for Android and Windows Phone devices (yes, native Windows Phone *gasp*). The IOS version will also be submitted but (naturally) will take a few weeks to show up in the app store.

    But... of course... if you guys are following us on Twitter, you would have known this 20 minutes ago! ... which reminds me... if you're on Twitter, please go ahead and retweet this; you can just click on the little twitter icon below the last post in this thread.

    Everybody - have a good weekend!

    Requirements:

    * HS3 version 3.0.0.194 or later
    * Z-Wave plug-in 3.0.1.23 or later

    This sounds awesome.

    It would be equally awesome if you could manage the device you just added. Like being able to re-define location, location2, and rename the devices.

    I just went around the house, with my iPad, and added 14 window sensors. I had to re-organize each one as I added them so I could tell afterwards which one was which.

      OMG! Somebody cares that I have (and like) a windows phone. I think I'm going to cry.
      If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

          Very cool! That is a lot handier than trying to control it through the web interface on a phone

            Does the device need to be a new generation z-wave device in order for inclusion to work or will it work with older devices?

              oh come on, i love zooming my screen around to click on those little pesky function box drop downs in the add node ui.

              Funny, the last time I added a few switches using my phone i had just upgraded to the nexus 6 and said to myself, wow this is so much easier now that I have a bigger screen to get to these dinky little dialogues.

              This will be a great tool!

              Now for version 2 you need to defy the laws of frequency bands and have the node sync THROUGH the phone instead of using NWI!

                Just looking at the description, it looks to interface with HomeSeer, not the controller. If that's the case it will work with any controller that is compatible with HomeSeer.

                    Click the link in my post and look at the screen shots and read the "Operation" section. That should make you happy!

                      Microsoft just laid off 7,800 people from their Windows Phone division... might be another reason to cry soon (sorry).

                      Think of this tool as a replacement for using the HS3 web interface to add devices. That's really what it is.

                            There were 7,800 people working on windows Phone? Given the amount of time and resources at Microsoft's disposal I could have built my own windows phone in my basement. Seriously.

                            Hopefully one of the people laid off was responsible for the minesweeper game that came with my phone. That guy really needs to re-examine his career choices.
