A week ago I received the z-stick, successfully updated the firmware on the wallmote and fully charged the wallmote.

After a week the wallmote is still responding. It looks like the update has solved the battery draining.

(so, now we can focus again on getting the wallmote functional)

Nice!
I've had my eye on these for a while now since I installed a bunch of LIFX bulbs and set the Vera up to control them.
I think they could be a perfect solution for many applications, provided someone builds a plugin that allows us to use all of the functions of the device (gestures, etc.). I was considering the Fibaro Swipe, but the price is a little steep and my experience with Fibaro customer support has been very negative.
Once you guys sort out the details, I'll pull the trigger and buy one for every room.
Thanks.
My "Karma" has been modified by 2 or 3 douchebags that didn't like that I criticized the plugin that they worship. I'm not actually a bad person.

So pardon my inexperience here. When you say
"Meanwhile,
Basic 1 tap functionality can be achieved using D_CentralSceneController1.json"
how do I use it? I changed the device_json field to the above string and the whole device mysteriously vanished from my controller.. Clearly I got that wrong :(

I managed to get the one tap scene controller functionality but I intermittently get about 10 seconds orange LED flashing.  Happens a few times a day, and is incredibly bright and annoying at night.

Anyone else get this or know why it would be happening?  Battery is 80%

I got the same issue.

It might be when the wallmote is in awaik state.

According to Aoen labs helpdesk this intermittent orange flashing is the intermittent wakeup.

This can be disabled by setting the Wakeup Interval to 0 in device settings.

an update is available.
I'm unable to test this update because I don't own a zwave stick to update the wallmote. Will order one today.

https://aeotec.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000170550-wallmote-quad-firmware-update-4-18-2017-


Firmware Change Logs:
1. Solves issue where WallMote freezes and cannot be activated unless plugged into a USB port.
2. Quick battery drain issues
This link no longer works, I have raised a ticket with aeotec support but no response for two days now. What is the usual response time from their support? Does any one have a working link to the firmware fix please?

To be honest I have two wallmotes, one set upmeith scenes and the other with group associations.
It becomes unresponsive frequently despite being right next to the Vera box, works maybe 40% of the time impress it. Just not impressed with current most up to date firmware. Plus the damn orange flashing from intermittent wakeups is so annoying.

Sounds like I'll need to hold off for another hardware solution.
