Lighting & Load Control / Re: GE / Jasco Smart Dimmer ZW3005
« Last post by Don Phillips on Today at 05:19:24 pm »
Let us know how these devices work in Vera in general, and in Scenes/PLEG specifically. I have a few switches needing change and I could use a price break if they are sale and working in Vera.

The plugin is done most probably by/in cooperation with Orange, which is a French company.
Vera probably didn't care to check it and make translation.

What is your Netatmo setup? Do you have wind gauge or not?
If yes, then you can expect such behaviour, if not it might be that they need a little time (couple of hours, even) to update data first time.

So update on this idea of turning the switches off at a low % of dim.  This worked well in PLEG.  I have a vacation rental with the GE dimmer switches.  The guests don't seem to understand them so instead of just hitting the paddle down to turn off the light a few people hold them until they dim down until they think it's off.  Leaving the dimmer at 1 - 4%.  I was trying to combat the switch eventually burning out from constant on mode.  Well it was a nice thought but what I've actually found over the course of the year is that the guest dims it to 1%, Pleg in Vera then turns it off.  Unfortunately though the dimmer remembers the last setting and so when a guest hits the up on the paddle to turn the light on it goes up to that % it was last set at and then Pleg turns it off so it makes it look like the dimmer on is broken and you have to hold it up to get the full function to work again.  So... right sentiment...  not so right in actual practice.

If you update your PLEG routine that turns it off to ALSO set a value on the variable "LoadLevelLast" to 100, that would allow the switch to come back on at 100% brightness. I can't guarantee that's the variable name you'd need to use because I don't have any of the GE Dimmers in use - mine are all Leviton. You can check the Advanced settings for the device and look at the Variables tab to find what it's actually called on your switches.

Well, i have to correct my previous statement. "&lang=en" didnt work, i thought it did because i logged on with a win10 pc with english settings in OS.

I think the problem might be the "revert to english" function, as a walkaround i could mabye make a norwegian version, but that is a lot of work, and i don't really want it in norwegian either..

What is exactly your setup ?
Client and server side ?

What is also the exact url that you use to open altui ?

I've just installed the Netatmo device on my Vera.  I can see the modules and the main module in the Kitchen shows the temp below it on the dashboard.  The other modules show nothing on the dashboard.  When looking at the devices I can see the > sign which takes me to the graphs from each module but the menu is in French?

Well after some extensive searches I found this article:

https://www.vesternet.com/resources/application-notes/apnt-102

It laid out step by step on setting device parameters.  Tested with the setting of the blue led and it worked!

I don't always have someone at the location.  But I did manage to find a friend willing to drive the 300 miles to be there to assist technical support to get it fixed.  It took them a while but eventually they got it squared away.  Still have no idea why it happened.   Decided next year I'm going to update the controller to one where I don't have to factory reset it just to do an update.  Tech support was very helpful.  It's just the reason I automate the house is because I'm not at the house.

Hi

Everything is working for me at the moment.

I?m still running firmware 1.7.3453 on my Vera Plus because I don?t want anything to break.
