The device has been added to our development roadmap and it should be supported natively in one on the next software updates.

Glad to hear.  I have an application where using the PIR separately from the switch it controls makes a lot of sense.  (My garage light switch is inside the back door of my house, and my outside light switch is in my garage - in both cases want to trigger a different switch based on motion...)
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

I have the GE/Jasco 26933 smart dimmer switch.   I've had it for several months - but it only worked briefly on Vera when I first installed it.   Than months later it working again - yea!   And than it quit after a few days.   So I deleted the node from Vera Plus - moved Vera to within 8 feet of the device - reset the switch to default - and was able to re-add the device - but only partially.   It errors out after the initial "sucessful" message with:

ERROR:  Unable to get any information on node

I've went thru this same process several times - and never get past that error.  Any suggestions?

I recently bought the GE Z-Wave Plus Smart Lighting Control Motion Sensor Switch(http://a.co/d/1UN7hkJ)

Manurfacture Site and Amazon site says this works with Vera, so I got it.  Before I start to add it to my system, always do search on this forum and found this.  Very happy with the steps from jadragescu, really good info.  I wanted to share that I got mine working really easy with a few steps from jadragescu. I did not do all of them and it seems to work fine.

I only did first few steps:
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



At this point I stopped.  I then thought to disconnect the motion trigger from the light by putting it into manual mode, per the manual and attached images. 
Once I did that, I was done, nothing else to do.  I can create standard scenes using normal triggers, no need for Luup code at startup or to do complicated scene.  Just thought I would share how I got mine setup.

I have attached a simple scene with the new device. This will stop my girls from leaving the bathroom light on all day...:)

Kyle,
Thanks for putting up the steps for this.  I came across this device recently, and I want to put one in my master bathroom to replace a standard motion sensor switch (no smart capability).  The motion detection on it works fine, but I don't necessarily want it to turn on all the lights in the middle of the night.  When we first had that sensor in my home, my wife wanted me to get rid of it, but she has a nasty habbit of leaving lights on all over the house, so I've lived with it.

My first reading the threads regarding this sensor caused some worry, as it seemed the motion sensor aspect was independent from the z-wave aspect.  Your solution has eased my concern.  I'll probably implement my solution with PLEG, because I need to control when it comes on, and which lights I want to come on at certain times of day.  Thanks for posting.

I was hoping Vera updated it so it's more native like they promised in 2017, but I can live with how you did it.

Any update on this?  When I searched for the device in Add Devices, I only get generic z-wave device as an option.

If I add it as a generic device, and native code comes out, do I need to delete and add again, or will it automatically switch?
