Hi All,

You will find attached files, they will create the plugin for vera, save them in a directory on your computer that you can find.

Instructions
1) Go to apps in Vera menu, located on the left side of the screen.
2) Select development apps, under development apps you will select Luup files. 
3) Go back to the directory on your computer and select the files you downloaded.  Select them and drop them into the upload selection (you can't miss it).  Once files are all uploaded, you will see each labeled as done.
4) Under the same menu development apps select create a device.  Under the section Upnp Device Filename enter HTD.xml.  Then press the button on the screen create device, wait for a minute or two.
5) Go to Settings from the menu on the left, select Z-Wave settings, advanced and reload engine.  After a few minutes this will make the first device the HTD Controller.  If it doesn't then you need to refresh your screen.
6) Select the HTD Controller device enter the advanced settings and type in the IP address of your GW-SL1.  Make sure the IP address is correct, go out of the device and back in making sure the IP address was saved.
7)  Go to Settings from the menu on the left, select Z-Wave settings, advanced and reload engine.  After a few minutes this will create the six zones.
8) You will have to rename the zones to what you have them named in your app. 
9) When you have confirmed that everything is fully functioning, you may have an error on the controller.  No worry enter the HTD Controller device, select advanced, variables and change the CommFailure to 0.  It should be 1.
10)  Go to Settings from the menu on the left, select Z-Wave settings, advanced and reload engine.  After a few minutes the error will be gone.

This creates a fully functioning plugin with 6 zones.  You can also get this to work with your Alexa if you have one. To do so  you need to setup a scene, the scene is what Alexa will operate.  It can turn zone on/off, volume up/down, mute and etc. 
Once completed you will ask Alexa to discover devices and your scene will be totally functioning

I hope this works well for you and give me an update on how you find it.

Hello Newzwaver,

I was able to successfully upload to the files to the development screen , but I run into a problem when trying to create the device it says

Code: [Select]
System error : Device: 86. Fail to load implementation file HTD.xml
I am guessing maybe it should have been called "D_HTD.xml" but even with that I still get the error and its not going away.

Please help.

Hi

Sorry, I have been using mine for the last few weeks no issue.  Make sure it's D_HTD.xml, it could be something went wrong when I uploaded.  If you have an Alexa it works great.  Setup scenes and you can control volume, mute, on/off and zones. 

So if the file name doesn't work I will reload it for you.  Keep me posted.

Hello,

Thanks for the response. When I used the  D_HTD.xml the device was created successfully. Will finish the set up of this later.


Your instructions have the wrong file name , so I believe it tried to create a device using the wrong xml file name. The problem now is the error wont go away because its still trying to create the device . Do you know how to clear this? like delete devices , it does not show up on the device list so not exactly sure how to clear the error message.

Hi

Yes, try this
http://<local_Vera_IP>:3480/data_request?id=device&action=delete&device=<device_ID>

Replace it with the device with the number of the device that was created and the Ip with your Vera ip.

If you have an issue finding the ip I can sent the list command.

Good luck and give me some feed back as I would like to post this once it has been fully tested.

I was able to finish configure it works great! Thanks again for all the help. Was also able to get rid of the ghost device . In reality the entire set up really takes like 2 mins. Now trying to set up scenes for Alexa, I have had a problem in the past for on and off scenes with Alexa, she seems to understand on but never off.

Excellent, if you need some help on the Alexa and HTD send me a note.   If you see functions you want added i can try that as well. 
I have my Alexa turning on and off zones, increasing/decreasing volume, turing all on/all off and mute on/off for zones and all.
