  I have a Vera3 - which does not have Z-Wave plus capability.  But I read that Z-wave plus is supposed to be backward compatible with normal Z-wave.  So I was expecting these units to work just fine with my Vera3.  But they fail to configure with a error message of "Failed at: Getting the version".  I've tried deleting & re-adding many times by using both low and high power inclusion.  Nothing helps.

Are you on UI5 or ui7?

I now have two of these installed. They originally drove me crazy because they create three devices. I thought I had an issue with my Vera Plus The easiest way to use the motion sensor is to simply check to see if the light turns on then it "saw" motion.
You can set the light sensor on or off with parameter 14. So when you go on vacation (google calendar) you turn parameter 14 off and just trigger anything else if the light goes on. A little clunky but it works.

They work great!

What code do you run to actively set parameters?  A sample/example would greatly help me.  I don't have any coding training, but I believe I can follow and edit.

I too, would like to see these work.  Just need them to be disarmed at night would be the best functionality.  That is one function that Lutron Occupancy sensors don't have.  The capability of utilizing these switches in a scene would be great, but only if you get the "alarm/trigger."  Any progression, thoughts of getting this to work?  I presume that the "Generic I/O" device is the motion sensor portion, but needs to have the correct device_file and device_json attached to it, with some updated parameters to post the triggers/notifications to vera/etc.

Please help if anyone knows a good solution.

After a phone-call to Jasco, I got no response back from their Tech team in support with Vera.  I asked about the WINK (as you could potentially use the Wink plugin to use with Vera.  That was painful to get it going, so I gave up on WINK as it provided the same 3 devices as Vera did when pairing).

After several hours messing around with these switches, I finally got these switches to work well with Vera.  It is a workaround method, but still a good method.  I have a message to Vera to see if my methods are ok, but I have tested it, and works like a charm.

If Vera support team approves of my methods, I will share it with the forum.  I just don't want to steer this "interesting/unsupported so called device" into the wrong path.

I have this switch https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07226MG2T
GE Z-Wave Plus Wireless Smart Lighting Control Motion Switch, On/Off, In-Wall, Occupancy Vacancy Sensor, Includes White & Light Almond Buttons, Works with Amazon Alexa, 26931

to set it to Vacancy mode do
luup.call_action('urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1','SendData',{Node='50',Data='112 4 3 1 2'},1)

to set it to Occupancy mode do
luup.call_action('urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1','SendData',{Node='50',Data='112 4 3 1 3'},1)

replace Node='50' with nodeId of your device, check settings->advanced->altid

spent a few hours trying to figure it out. Seems to be working...

Ok, I finally got a response from Vera.  They didn't have a problem by sharing the implementation.  I don't even know if they even care to utilize this device as a supported device in the future.  :(

Either or, here are my findings:

Add as generic Zwave Device:
1 Primary Dimmable Light
2 Secondary Dimmable Light
3 Generic I/O Device

Once added Change parameters in Advanced Settings on primary device (1st Dimmable Device Created):
Device type (urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:MotionSensor:1)
device file (D_MotionSensor1.xml)
json (D_MotionSensor1.json)
category (4)
sub category (3)

After saving those settings, go to advanced settings again:
change associationnum to 1
change multichannelendpoint 1,0,0

Add an Association:
add association group id 2: zwave, no endpoint (leave the input text field, blank)

This will be able to get your primary device to show Motion detection, and use your 2nd dimmable light for scene's/etc.

What I did next would create a scene and variable watch to detect when your primary device (now motion detector) to know when it is armed/disarmed to change the value:

Create a Manual Triggered Scene (Scene Number... (Mine was 5)):

local armed = luup.variable_get("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SecuritySensor1","Armed", 376)  -- 376 is Device your device Number
armed = tonumber(armed)
 if (armed == 1) then
   luup.call_action("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1","SendData",{Node="89",Data="112 4 6 1 1"},1) -- 89 is alt id of your device and this luup action enable motion detection
elseif (armed == 0) then
        luup.call_action("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1","SendData",{Node="89",Data="112 4 6 1 0"},1) -- 89 is alt id of your device and this luup action disables motion detection
        luup.variable_set("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SecuritySensor1","Tripped","0",376)
       
end

Create a variable watch in your "Start up Lua"  (Apps -> Develop Apps -> Edit Startup Lua):

-- Set up variable-watch for device 59 (your device number created)
luup.variable_watch("SensorTrip59","urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SecuritySensor1","SetArmed",59)

-- Process variable-watch callback for device 59. Run scene 5
function SensorArm59()
        luup.call_action("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1", "RunScene", {SceneNum = 5}, 0)
end


You can do the same to run a manual trigger or device trigger for any action for your Generic I/O: Perhaps Light Sensor ON/OFF....

The only thing I don't like, or haven't figured out is to get Instant device reporting for Dimmable Light.  I have it polled at 60 seconds.  The dimmable light device will report ON/OFF if manually pressed from the switch, but not update when motion is detected. 

**If anyone has any ideas to have that updated appropriately, that would be a great help.

There may be a better way of creating an Implementation File to do the variable watch for device and without creation of a Manually Scene/etc.  I thought this was the easier approach, but if anyone wants to develop an Implementation, please do so and please share!

If you have any questions, improvements/etc, please post.  I will try to answer any questions/concerns as well.

Anyone know where I can get a list of parameters for this device?  Its not on Jasco's website (as far as I can tell).  I simply want to deactivate the motion sensor from time to time

Here is all the information you probably need for this device.

Regarding the motion sensor, its above in my post as that is what I am "arming/disarming" is turning on/off the motion sensor.

View the configurations link in the URL below and shows all the parameters.

Hope this helps!
