Dimmer Switch: LZW31-SN
Bulbs: 4 x LZW42 (Inovelli’s own RGBW bulbs)
Bypass: The recommended Aeotec Nano Dimmer Module
Hub: Home Assistant 3.10 with Supervisor 200 running on Hass.IO
USB Dongle: Z-Wave (Sigma Designs) UZB Z-Wave USB Adapter (aka Nortec Linear HUSBZB-1)
All 4 bulbs are associated to the dimmer in groups
2: Basic Set,
3:Switch Multilevel Set and
4:Switch Multilevel Start/Stop.
The switch and the bulbs have been included in the network without security, though I tried with security as well. I re-added them without security to help keep everything nimble.
I know there is a lot of talk about this issue, but I can’t seem to get past it. I have the internal relay disabled (8x tap Config Button flashes red 3x). I have reset config parameters
21:Power Type to
Neutral then back to
Non Neutral and
22:Switch Type to
3-Way Toggle then back to
Load Only. I have also tried setting the setting
5:Minimum Level to
45 which, as I understand, should not be needed since I’m only powering smart bulbs.
With all that done, when I turn off the switch either by tapping down on the paddle or sending a power off command, the power gets cut to the bulbs. I have tested this by putting a “dumb” dimmable bulb in one of the sockets so I would expect that the associated bulbs would all turn off but the dumb bulb would still have power and not turn off.
Are there some commands I can send to change it so that the switch actually stays on and only commands are sent? When it turns off I can’t control the bulbs individually and my network has to adjust routing accordingly which can take some time.
Maybe this is should be another topic, but I’m wondering if there are configuration settings on the bulbs that disable their ability to route so that my network doesn’t rely on them. I have plenty of other adjacent powered devices that can do this work.
