Does anyone know how to configure this in Home Assistant?
Basically binding the switches together to sync: on, off, dim and led bar?. @Eric_Inovelli@EricM_Inovelli do you guys happen to have any info on this?
I started by following the instructions:
a) Changed my 3 way wiring - basically it is no longer 3 way, it is now a single pole switch controlling the light on one side and a switch without load on the other).
b) Based on the instructions the next step would be to bind both switches.
And that is where it get’s tricky… the manual has a place holder for this instruction which was never updated. Also somewhere in the instructions there is a video where it reads switch to switch but it is actually switch to bulb.
Already posted on a few other threads with similar subject and email support but so far no luck.
Meanwhile all my 3 ways are broken and kids afraid of leaving their room at night because they will have to walk in the dark until the other and of the hallway …
At least for ZHA, the switch to switch How-to instructions are just a copy of binding a switch to a bulb, so they’re somewhat less than ideal. Plus HA has changed the UI a bit. I assume the instructions are just unfinished. (@Eric_Inovelli: Any ETA on having instructions?)
FWIW, Here’s what I did in ZHA:
On the device page for the switch, click the three dots in the Device Info section, and choose Manage Zigbee Device.
Select the Bindings tab.
Choose the other switch under Bindable Devices and click Bind.
(At least for me, the spinner never stopped spinning, but it seemed to work.)
You’ll then need to go to the device page for the other switch and repeat the steps to bind the other way.
Give me a couple days and I will write something up. Ping me if I forget. I’ve added it to my calendar though. Problem is finding my test setup that was in my old office so that I can figure it out and I need to setup SmartThings in the new office.
@EricM_Inovelli – what endpoint do we use for Inovelli switch to switch bindings?
In those instructions above, click on your first Inovelli switch and go into the settings (Step 6). Input one (1) where it says, “Bind/Unbind Device Endpoint” and then put your second Inovelli switch Zigbee ID where it says, “Bind Device”.
Then do the same thing but in reverse for your second switch (ie: Endpoint 1 and Switch 1’s Zigbee ID).
I’m hoping to get caught up by the end of the week and I promise I’m trying as hard as I can to put out all these fires. This was on my checklist for you, just a few other fires above yours… maybe one day I’ll have free time!
Now that I’ve repaced with working switches I am seeing something odd:
I am using 2 x blue series in a three way dimmer setup controling a single (dumb) light. The blue series are zigby binded togther. When adjusting the diming level on the switch which physically controls the light, I notice that the LED bar does not update accordingly to show the dim level on the secondary switch that is not controlling the load. Is this expected behaviour? I assumed that both switches’ LED bars should reflect the dim level regardless of which switch was used to set the dim level.
Nice, glad you got it working. I had a heck of a time on ST last night too w/binding and ultimately I had to remove the switch and then re-add it for it to work. I think there was some sort of “ghost” bindings on the switch from all my fooling around with it.
@sdbigio would you be able to share a screenshot of each switch’s Settings? I’m running into the exact same scenario as you were. I’m 99% sure my wiring is correct. This is the diagram for my situation.
I’ve tried all combos of enabling/disabling the Smart Bulb setting too though and have had no luck. When I enable it on the switch that has the line wire direct from the power source, this switch doesn’t respond to On/Off commands, it always remains On. When I enable it on the other switch, this switch doesn’t respond to On/Off commands, it always remains Off.
