    Works ok, but I am struggling to get the energy consumption to work.
    can you share your settings if it works fine for you?
    thanks...
    I think I got the problem fixed.
    set parameter 101 to 001B1B0F as per the aeotec guide https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.freshde...lication%2Fpdf

    decimal value is 1776399

    seems to work now, will monitor for a few days

    I was looking at those and thinking about adding Insteon into my setup. However the Insteon outlets don't provide power metering. If they did they would fulfill all of what I'm wanting and I'd give that a shot.

    All the outlets in my home are the Insteon dual controllable outlets. I've had them for 3 years with no issues, but I do have over 150 of them so maybe the mesh is tighter for me? They work great in HS3.

    Aha. Of course. Thanks.

    For use with switches it can be configured a few different ways
    • Momentary button - each time a switch input is received, the output toggles
    • State switch - the output follows the state of the switch. I think, though I am not sure if it is controlled by Z-Wave to be On when the switch is Off, turning the switch back On will do nothing. Returning it to Off will turn the output Off
    • 3-way.- a momentary interruption of the switch input toggles the output
    In any of the modes, Z-Wave will still control the output.
    Thank you

    First bullet is the point I originally highlighted in why I don't use the relays... I don't want to have to go through replacing the switches with momentary switches too.... anyways it doesn't matter the switches aren't an issue they're all z-wave/Lutron anyways. But this has gotten me thinking about maybe I can replace a Caseta switch with a relay and a WallMote

    edit : oups i missread you post
    It's not the polarity of the module. It's the "dummy" switch. If you have a relay and you flip the switch up then the relay goes to the opposite of what it is...

    Relay State: On Switch Up - > normal
    Relay State: Off Switch Up -> push switch down to turn light on (confuses people)
    Relay State: On Switch Down -> push switch up to turn light off (confusion again)
    Relay State: Off Switch <different than last person left it> - > real confusion if the switch is controlled by motion detector then the physical switch is never a "visible" identifier of status....

    I know... we get this.... some do not understand that it doesn't matter if the switch is up/down or sideways just move it the other way and you get what you want

    Thought about those but they can't handle my use case of a Window A/C unit

    Is the dual nano big? Can I cut the wires of my Kitchen fan and have control of it with the nano?
    and I presume that if i turn off the switch manualy . Then... turn on or off the switch vis zwave wont do anything ...since the circuit is open?

    I bought a GE zwave plus outlet. Now i that read the description, i should have bought the enerwave for the energy monitoring node

Unless I also replace the switch with a momentary switch then wife and kids don't like that the switch is UP but the light is OFF and the switch is DOWN and the LIGHT is ON and then they get confused and complain.... I don't get it. If the light is on flip the switch and it turns off and reverse who cares if the switch is up/down... but some do
