I bought 4 Aeotec Smart switch 6 (ZW 096) Firmware 1.0.
I added them to my system, a Vera Edge Firmware 1.7.2406 to discover they would not report power consumption, either power (w) or accumulated (kwh).
After looking around for a while in the luapnp.log i discovered the the device did not report any power.
I googled for the manual for this device, looking for more advanced options than the one in the box. Especially the Z-wave configuration data thinking this would be the place to start.
Found this one:https://www.intin.no/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/aeotecss6manual.pdf
(Sorry the insert hyperlink does not work?)
Found four options that seemed interesting:
(80) Enable to send notification Factory default 2
(90) Enables/disables parameter 91 and 92 Factory default 1 (Enabled)
(91) The value here represents minimum change in wattage to send message Factory default 25
(92) The value here represents minimum change in wattage percent to send message Factory default 5
Then came the problem of reading these values, being new to vera it took some googeling, but i eventually found this guide:http://www.vesternet.com/resources/application-notes/apnt-102
Did this and found out that actually all the Smart Switches i got had the wrong Factory default setting on parameter 90, they were all 0 so no power was ever reported.
Changed this to 1 and they seem to work like a charm.
There is only one problem that remains that i'm still working on:
Would expect a child device or two to show up, one for kwh and one for w, the latter not being so important since it is shown on the parent device.
