Help with associations needed

Post by Ulfis » 12 May 2018 14:13

Hi,

I'm new here (and to z-wave), however not new to programming which I've done professionally for some 30+ years.

I've a set up consisting of:
- Razberry
- Telldus wall plug
- Qubino flush dimmer (ZMNHDD1 H1S3P5)
- NodOnwall switch (CWS-3-1-00) 4 switches (2 pairs)

The inclusion process was terrible. :o All sorts of problems with time outs, incomplete interviews and other error messages. It took me hours to get them all included. After inclusion I can control the Qubino dimmer and the wall plug perfectly well from the elements view in the z-way UI.

I've managed to make an association in Expert UI where I can turn on the wall plug on or off using one pair of switches.
I've also managed to associate the other switch pair with the Qubino dimmer but it can only control it on/off. No dimming.

1) Is there a way to make an association in the normal UI (not Expert) to control a wall plug on/off using a wall switch pair?
2) How do I make the Qubino to dim using the other switch pair? (Dimming it from the UI works fine.)
3) Why is there a red triangle with an exclamation mark for Lifeline in the expert/configuration/association view? Is there an error?


Happy for any help I can get.

Does this mean no one knows how to control a dimmer using z-way?

2 weeks, 90+ views, no fucking reply. The support for this product sucks big time.

Yes, I use bad words to call the attention of the moderators. Sorry... :roll:

You can send dimming commands to exact value from Z-Way using sciences. Science can be executed from your second switches.

You can also check If-Then module


If you want to send dimming commands from switches directly, you need to associate corresponding group with the device to dim. Please read Qubino manual to check how to do it.

Finally a reply. Thank you!

I'm not trying to send dimming commands directly from the switch. It's fine to go over the razberry.

Sciences? Second switches? Not sure what you mean but I'll try it. Remember, I'm a newbie to z-wave.
