  • Tricklestar Remote 200-ZW

    I just got my HS system up and running (read that as I'm new to this....)and one of the items I've purchased was a Tricklestar remote:

    I was hoping to use the tricklestar to turn on/off/dim two lamps in a room that are already controlled by HS. As I understand it, this means that the Tricklestar actually sends a signal to the Z-Troller which then sends the command to the lamp modules.

    After reading the instructions and getting my two lamp modules hooked up and working, I can't quite figure out what to do with the Tricklestar Remote now. Too many options on the instructions and none clearly say what I think I'm trying to do.

    Anyone have a quick answer?

    To do what you desire you have to make the remote a secondary controller and copy/replicate the Z-Trollers contents to the remote.

      followed the intructions, #6, and it did all the flashing it was supposed to. I went back in to the Setup/interface tab of the HS software and clicked Manage then clicked on the "Import Devices". Not sure how to let HS know I have a secondary controller. Am I missing something? Thanks, I'm hoping to get over this newbie hump pretty quick and get a handle on how this stuff works.

        I believe...

        In a word "yes", you want "Replication Receive" add new nodes or remove nodes from the HomeSeer interface controller, by copying the node information from your primary Z-Wave controller into your HomeSeer secondary controller

        instruction #6 says "Press the Controller Replication Transmit initiator on the
        Primary Controller
        Replication will start and Remote Control LED Indicator will
        blink Green when transferring Network Information."

          My previous post is confirmed, I tested it with my own secondary controller.

            Sorry to bump such an old thread.

            But does anyone else have experience with the Tricklestar Remote?


            I found this in a box and would like to get it working, for kicks. I followed the instructions that @Thel posted, config mode and sending the HS stuff to it. But no use.

            Long shot, but . . .
