Polyglot + Zwave noobie


Recommended Posts

I have been a faithful ISY user for 11 years, but recently moved to a new home and elected to do a wholesale factory reset and started back down automation lane.  I decided to try some Zwave devices and I’m trying to learn what I can do with polyglot cloud.  So here are my two noobie questions:

1.  When I added a GE Zwave light switch, the ISY created three devices: the light switch, scene 1, and scene 2.  The light switch works fine, but I just don’t understand what the two scenes are for.   I welcome pointers to other articles or the wiki, but I did try and search them before bothering everyone.  

2.  When I log into the polyglot cloud via the portal, my ISY shows up but it says unmanaged and when I go to the store and attempt to install a nodeserver, the screen jumps back to the dashboard and nothing appears to change.   I am sure I am missing something obvious, but I tried the step by step directions and couldn’t make any progress.

*** ISY-994 pro running 5.0.16

Thank y’all for your time.

Some of the GE switches include multi-tap capability for on/off which would be the scene 1/2 that the ISY would create.  Those scene nodes could then be used in programs.

I would add @Michel Kohanimto your post to make him aware of your issue
