(SOLVED)Dianemo S - Zwave with MK Astral 2G Switch
« on: July 03, 2012, 03:48:23 am »
Hi Guys

I have today finally recieved the remaing bits I needed to have a play with Zwave.

After a few hours of fighting I found that the com port needed setting for the zwave device to work and one of my Duwi Doro dimmers was faulty.

I now have one Duwi Doro dimmer and one Duwi Doro Switch working fine.

I then went onto try and connect up the MK Astral 2G switch. This is where I hit a brick wall. No matter what I do I can only get the system to recognise a single switch.

It appears to include it ok. Both lights flash green three times. But only the one gets added. The one that gets added when I press the button on the switch it flashed green 3 times when switching light on and off. The second switch does not flash just turns the light on or off. From Dianemo I only see one light switch and this only turns the first switch in the dual gang on or off.

Anyone got any ideas on this one?

I have tried adding this on its own to the system and still have the same problem.

Regards

Classic case of RTFM from top to bottom.

In particular the wiki page on zwave devices where I would have seen the bit that tells me to manually add the second paddle on the switch!

DOH!

Hi,

I'm just catching up with my messages after taking a few days off and read the above this morning;

Yeah the 2nd gang paddle needs to be manually added right now. We do intend to make multi-level switches auto add but currently you must add them manually. There are two approaches;

- Add all your switches/dimmers. Then go back and add the 2nd gang paddle to each. Disadvantage is that all your 2nd paddles will be separated sequentially from their 1st paddle.

- Add one 2g switch/dimmer. Then before adding any more add the 2nd paddle. Advantage is they will be in sequence... disadvantage is it's more work and tedious!

All the best
