    In my experience with HS4, grid view has never worked correctly for most (all) of my devices. It seems random as to what controls and status show up on the "card" and, unlike list view, you can't edit the status nor controls.

    What you are seeing is a "root" device called "Front Outdoor Plug" with the first feature showing. When you click on the "card" you see all of the features. When you look at it in list view and it makes more sense.

    EDIT: The "HS-ZWPB700" is your USB Z-Wave interface. It has no features so doesn't show a status. Again, not very useful.
    It shows correctly in the mobile app and both plugs work. I don't have to select the card to see both plugs. However, I either need to move my Hud or purchase a range extender. The plug does not get any signal outside. Eventually I plan on adding a couple of switches & contact sensors.

I believe everything is working a now & hopefully it still will after unplug it & take it outside. I do have a couple of questions.

    1. Under devices I have a HS-ZWPB700 (148) but there is no status. What is this?

    2. I see my plug but I have to click on it to show both switches. Is this normal or is there a way for this to show as two separate devices?

    Refer to the pictures it that helps

    I have a couple of the GE/Jasko versions of the single socket one. They both have worked flawlessly. Maybe it's the double socket version that HS doesn't recognize.
    You do know you can modify the ZWave configuration files to add the 2nd socket if it doesn't exist in the default config.

    No response from Eva Logik (aka Nie_tech Co, Ltd.) so I'm packing it up and sending it back to Amazon. I'm going to add a z-wave switched outlet instead once the rainy weather subsides.

    Let us know what you find out. I have a GE outdoor single gang outlet which has been working great for more than a year. But instead of adding an second one, a double gang would be nice in that area.

Inovelli ended up issuing RMA's and refunding a lot of them and never got them to work correctly. Probably the reason for the 'falling out'.

    It's now being sold under the EvaLogic name (most likely a Chinese brand) on Amazon. Considering the firmware is still low at 1.1, my bet is that it's still has the same issues as the ones sold in 2018. There are some reports that someone dug up a custom driver for the Samsung Smartthings hub that seemed to recognize it. But no dice for other systems.

    Just go over to the Inovelli forums and search for NZW97 and you can read all about it.

    There was a NZW97 on eBay a couple of week ago and considered biding on it but when I saw that the latest bid was only $4.95 and it was only 6 hours to go, I decided to do some research on it. Glad I didn't bid on it because they wanted $14 or so, bucks in shipping. Not a great deal when you add the two together so I passed.
    It seems like there may be a "mix" of these in the distribution channels. I've opened a ticket with EVA Logik.

    I had the problem with a new v4 Z-Net as well.

    Interesting, after reading this thread, I just purchased an Eva Logik ZW97 (both outlets controllable), prepared to work around this problem. However, the ZW97 is working fine for me. I am still on HS3 3.0.0.548, and I have the Z-Wave plugin version 3.0.9.0, with a new Z-Netv4 controller. I included the ZW97 normally--secure mode--and inclusion was quick and easy, worked the first time, with no errors. Both outlets are independently controllable and show proper status changes individually. No issues that I can see.
    This is encouraging. I have older Z-Nets but I'm surprised that would affect this. I'd expect the Z-Wave plugin to do the message processing. I'll have to ask HST.

    Here is the output from the node configuration / Z-wave tab:

    Current Firmware: Manufacturer = Version: 1.1

    Nubiseer, that experience is so different from mine that I wonder if there are different versions of the device.

    No progress. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to investigate any further. I did find the same issue reported on a Hubitat forum and EvaLogik had to provide an updated driver to fix the problem. I suspect something similar will be needed for HS4. Once the holiday dust settles I'll look into it further.

    I think you mean HS4.2.6.0 but that's the HS version which is independent of the Z-Wave plugin version. The latest plugin version is 3.0.9.0 and superseded beta 3.0.8.1. I've tried everything I can think of and I'm still seeing the bizarre status behaviour. I'm going to open a ticket with HS and with EvaLogik to see if I can get someone to look into it. Since I'm only using these to turn On and Off holiday lights, I can live with the messed up status for now. Next Summer I'll be using these with low-voltage lighting transformers so I'll need to get this sorted out before then.
    Have you gotten any progress on this issue?
