Z-Wave Master Controller Doesn't Update Light Status
« on: March 06, 2009, 01:48:25 am »
Any one know how to add the master controller to LMCE so LMCE listens to commands sent from the master controller?

I have an Intermatic HA07 that is sometimes used to control the lights rather than resuming an orbiter from sleep.  The problem is that the HA07 can turn on/off a light just fine (as can LMCE) but if the lights are turned on/off by the HA07 the status in LMCE doesn't change.  To be clear, if the lights are off (LMCE is stating they are off) and the lights are turned on using the HA07, LMCE's light status doesn't change- and vise versa.

My understanding, was that z-wave devices all talk to each other and, if needed, they act as repeaters.  So the signal should get back to my micasaverde z-wave dongle.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Hi jimmejames,

as far as i know, the status is polled from LMCE. There was a discussion regarding floorplan device state, have a look here. Maybe that answers your question.
