I asked same thing on Vesternet and I got a negative response

My question

"What is the difference between the bi-stable and the contactor switch ? I need to switch a load of ~ 4k W (electrical water heater) which uses a double switch (live+neutral), which one suits better ? Do u have any feedback from Vera users that have managed to add them in their network (smart meter, contactor, bi-stable) ?"

The answer I received

"There is no difference between bi-stable and contactor switch. BICOM or IKA are only devices that are compatible with Smart Meter ? in your case you can use BICOM.
From our experience Smart Meter is not supported by Vera"



It is pitty though because their switches are the only capable for handling high loads (32A). It'd be nice for Vera to support them.

Hi,
I've bought this meter, but still haven't finished to configure it.
The difference between bistable switch and the contactor switch is the "memory" of the state. bi-stable switch remain in the same state even if the power source is disconnected. The BICOM432 is very interesting solution due to IR port controll, but you can use every relay or contactor switch with 230V control voltage and up to 3W power consumption rating.

the 32a contactor is just a contactor it is not a z-wave  or zigbee device it would hard wire into smart meter. the bi stable sw is controled by IR

It's a troll.
Living in the Land of Oz, give me a vegemite sandwich. Home Seer, Vera Lite & Edge, Popp, Black Cat Smart Hub & Vera G, Black Cat Lite 1 & 2's a Black Cat Dimmer or 2, then some  Black Cat Cat's Eye PIR's & Door-Window Sensors, Broadlink RMPro & Mini plus a Z-UNO or 2.

I bought one to try a few days ago - ZMNHDT1
I only wanted it for metering so have not bought/tried the IR switch or the contactor.
I configured it as a generic zwave device and parms 140 - 148 appear to be reporting correctly
I have had a problem occasionally reading the Watts value
most of the time sending http://DevIP:3480/data_request?id=variableget&DeviceNum=139&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:EnergyMetering1&Variable=Watts
returns a value which appears reasonable but occasionally returns a decimal fraction e.g.0.966 etc. - which is plainly wrong.
Additionally it does appear possible to add further device options but the "monitor" dropdown only gives the values at that time and these are not regularly updated. This is also the case when querying them with:-
http://DevIP:3480/data_request?id=variableget&DeviceNum=139&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveDevice1&Variable=VariablesGet

Is there an HTTP command I can issue to refresh these values?
Is there a method for requesting device support for new devices? If not are there pointers/help for adding support yourself ?

Hi

have you tried contacting vera support ? they have helped me with a lot of diffrent issues... Where devices are wrong created in the system.

Looks like there might be support for this device... : http://support.mios.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2780057-ui7-%E2%96%BE-beta-software-update-%E2%96%BE-version-7-0-21-%E2%96%BE-april-10-2017-%E2%96%BE-1-7-929-1-7-2744-1-7-2745-?b_id=301&t=179086

Mine will arrive sometime next week....

BTW: the 3 phase edition of this meter DOES not work with vera yet....

Just wanted to follow up..

Lastest firmware (june 19 2017) This 1 phase smart meter works fine.
the gui shows WATTS and KWH, and under variables you can access volts, PF very nice.... :-)
