Leviton dimmer issue


grahamk

Recommended Posts

I have this dimmer:

 

http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ProductDetail.jsp?partnumber=DZMX1-1LZ&section=66154&minisite=10251

 

I was expecting that turning the light on via a button push would be picked up by the isy to run a program (I want to trigger multiple lights based on this switch being thrown).

 

I never see any notification at the isy. running 5.0.2. Am i expecting too much?? :wink:

 

Thanks

Leviton Vizia RF+ switches do support instant status.

 

However, this device referenced (DZMX1) is not a member of the RF+ line.

It's their lower cost line, and as such, looks like they didn't pay the patent fee to allow instant status.

 

Well - there you go. Dang, i bought the wrong switch. Thanks for the answer.

So - I would really like to be able to hit this one switch and have it trigger a program on the ISY - so I ponied up for one of these:

 

http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ProductDetail.jsp?partnumber=VRI06-1LZ&section=44140

 

Which is a "scene capable" vizia RF+ product.

 

I installed it, and the wrote a program that triggers on "Control(Old) ZW038 is switched on" then do a bunch of things, and....nothing.

 

I do see these type of events in the event viewer, but i have no idea what they mean. Is the program line i am using correct?

The Instant Status is reported 5 secs after the switch is pressed. 

 

I have a Leviton RF+ switch (VRS15-1LZ On/Off) and see the Instant Status reporting 5 secs after the paddle press which was not instant enough for me so it got relegated to a rarely used location. I can confirm that the ON and OFF is reported and correctly recognized 5 secs after the paddle press. I am using 5.0.3.

 

All my other switches are GE/Jasco switches which associate with the ISY and report immediate status to the ISY. I do believe they have to be in direct range of the ISY though and not rely on hopping.

Yes, it shows up as "On/Off Scene Switch". I don't have any programs detecting the switch being pressed. It's been relegated to an outside light. It's programmed to come on/off at sunset/sunrise.

 

In 5.0.3 the Admin Console is pretty much unusable now as it doesn't read all the programs in and programs that call missing programs are shown in error. I don't want to mess with it until a new version is released.

Except for Lutron brand, Z-Wave switches and dimmers do not report their status unless queried so they cannot be used as a trigger.

Scene switches (when ISY 5.03 will be working with multi-channel)  will properly trigger  scenes and therefore do what non-Lutron switches can not do ?
