    Z-Tool+ IOS is Live

    You can download the IOS version now. Of course, it's the older version. We're submitting the update today. That will likely take another 2 weeks or more to clear.

    unexpected character encountered while parsing value: b. path ",line 0, position 0.
    I have local login enabled, jso enabled and tried the zwave2.db renaming. still no luck

    When i select one of the functions of the app, i get object reference is not set to an instance of the object

    I am on 1.94 and the latest zwave .25

    If you are using a ZEE S2 near a non NWI or battery device you can use Teamviewer on the phone and computer to remotely mouse click on the computer's GUI to remove or add a device. It is a bit tedious but gets the job done. Teamviewer is free for personal use.

    In that case feature request would be do choose node you want to optimize or want to manually add route for
    Z-Tool+ only uses the commands on the actions menu from the controller management screen. Since there's no command on the menu to optimize and individual device, Z-Tool+ can't do that. Also, the network optimize function automatically skips battery operated devices. As such, you'll still need to use the web GUI to accomplish this on your phone.

    If you want to manually add a route I would think that would be easier from the node info page in a browser.
    Yes i did. I was holding the device in my hand with the phone in the other. tried it on several devices but it didn't work.

    I was having an issue with Z-Wave missing functions for my Z-Wave lock in an event. Sparkman suggested a fix:
    http://board.homeseer.com/showpost.p...04&postcount=4

    Curiously, the second option ("stop the z-wave plugin and rename the z-wave2.db file in the data\z-wave directory to something else and then restart the plugin") not only fixed my missing Z-wave functions, but also seemed to have fixed my problem with the Z-Tool+, which works now.

    Just thought I would throw that out as something to try.

    Is it normal that it takes this long for Apple to approve the new app?
    The Android and Microsoft approval processes are automated. Apple appears to have a manual process. So yea... it can take weeks.

    If you're adding the occasional device to your network, it's not a huge deal to use the web GUI on a phone. However, if you're doing a whole house, it's downright PAINFUL! Z-Tool+ simplifies the process greatly.

    HS3 Web Interface inclusion method
    1. Click to Open Your Browser
    2. Click Your Bookmark to Open HS3 Web Interface
    3. Click Plug-ins
    4. Click Z-Wave
    5. Click Controller Management
    6. Click to expand the Z-Wave interface section
    7. Click the Actions menu
    8. Click Add/Include a Node
    9. Click Start

    Note that I only included the clicks and didn't include all the pinching, zooming and scrolling needed for this either!

    Z-Tool+ inclusion method
    1. Click to Launch Z-Tool+
    2. Click Add Device


    If you're not using a phone to set up your network, you're probably not going to care about Z-Tool+. if you are though... this is a game changer!
    I use my iPad mostly (iPhone and Laptop occasionally) and I guess those steps have become 2nd nature. I was hoping you were going to say it's a pre-cursor to a whole new mobile HST UI, but I understand that you might not want to be drawn in to that conversation.

Not sure why the big deal around a stand-alone app for this, unless it's using a new tool-set and gaining enhanced, cross platform, development experience in readiness for a much needed replacement to HS Touch.
