Cooper RF 9500
« on: October 03, 2009, 01:31:45 am »
Anyone else using the cooper RF9500 Battery operated switch?

Has anyone configured this device in vera before?

Is it considered a 2 scene controller?

So it's actually more versatile if I associate it with devices. Up will turn on, down will turn off.

I'm having issues setting this device to associate itself with two other devices.

Could someone post a step by step. The wiki doesn't help.

I set its groupID = 1
I set 25,26 which are the plugs I want to turn on/off.
I then hit save.
I hit reconfigure but the device stays with a red cog.

Do I need to set devices, 25,26 to groupID=1?

yes, pressed button once per second. The latest firmware changes how it all work anyways now :)

Here's the latest tech reply I received tfrom Julian.

Hello,
    We're re-written the scene to controller association process in the 944 firmware. Please update your box:

On your Vera go to Advanced, downloads and put in this URL:

http://download.controlmyhouse.net/betafirmware/ftp/wl500gP_Luup-1.0.944.trx

The 'custom zwave settings' 'scene assignments' is gone. Now, there's
only 1 way to assign a scene to a scene or zone controller: Create the
Scene on the scenes tab, click Add Event, choose the scene/zone
controller, choose 'a scene is activated', for 'which scene number'
put in the button number (1-4).

Then when you save, whatever devices in the scene are capable get
programmed directly in the zone/scene controller, and in parallel the
zone/scene controller also is programmed to report the scene # to
Vera, so Vera will also run the scene. Therefore, all the scene
capable devices in the scene can be dimmed/brightened and turned off
like normal, and will work without Vera. The non-scene capable
devices, like thermostats, etc., will only work when Vera is on.

It also works for handheld remotes. However, since we can't program
the handheld except during inclusion because it's battery operated,
after you add an event to a scene for a handheld remote, it will
initially be working only through Vera's events (ie on works, but not
off). As soon as you choose 'Add Controller' and add the same one
again, then Vera will transfer the scenes into the handheld so it
works just like the in-walls.

mark-hc: Ooo! I wonder if this will work with my Leviton VRCS4-MRX? Might be worth a try. Is 944 the latest or is there a later version I should go to?

I believe that's what MCV was talking about regarding the new Leviton Zone/Scene controller associations... Need to try myself. Anyone already tried it? How does it work?

@denix, I tried the technique posted by @mark-hc (using 1.0.944) and it works using Leviton 4-Scene+Switch controllers.

I'm on 949 and have a VRCS4-MRX with a scene controlling lights on dimmers and pumps on switches.  Using the wall controller it dims the lights, as well as turning the scene on and off. Awesome! Of course it works using Vera's mobile and browser UIs, too.
