    @Spud, do you have any suggestions to get ImperiHome to recognize Kwikset Locks? Mike

    Yes I am.

    On other systems, like Vera - they normalize the names so they make sense in the real world.

    Homeseer keeps the native names: 'Z-Wave Binary Switch', 'Z-Wave On/Off', etc. Not helpful at all since often manufacturers call the same type of device by different names

    Vera is nice enough (as is most HA systems I've used) to standardize/normalize the names that appear in the UI: "Motion Sensor" and "Switch" and "Dimmer" - so no matter what device vendor it is, you always know what that Child device REALLY is.

    I'd had to rename most child devices. so they make sense and can be easily used in HS3... especially since HS3 is the one of the least efficient UIs to do things in... "scrolling and clicking hell" (no tree view, or search, or drag-n-drop)

    Motion sensors can t be recognized automatically, you need to add them from the config page in the security tab.

    I suspect you say Motion Sensors cant' be auto recognized - they show as binary switches, yes? (HS3 does not normalize, like Vera does - very lazy of HST)

    BUT, my thought is you could make an upgrade to this plugin to enable auto recognition of most devices...

    Allow users to set key word "Categories" that identify what type of sensor/device.

    I rename all my devices properly (as they should be if HS3 did it correctly) - so all device "Name" fields are proper... Motion, Light, Battery, Luminance, Temperature, Siren, etc

    This would be a huge benefit enabling much more flexibility and far less manual configuration for those like myself that have over 100 devices

    I too have a similar issue, I just installed ImperiHome PI on my HS3 PRO and ImperiHome App on my IOS and successfully have them communicating however when I perform a cache refresh all three of my kwikset locks that I can see and operate with HS3 PRO but the plugin does not see any of them the same for motion sensors I would have thought when the app scans for applicable devices that all devices would be available and the user can then deselect/select the item they do not want to see i.e. virtual devices, events.
