We are releasing a beta firmware for LZW31-SN users as a follow up to v1.41. It addresses some bugs and enhances some features regarding that firmware.
This firmware should be stable, but if there are any issues, please let us know. There are some users that reported some flickering lights with v1.41. If you are a user who has that issue with 1.41 please try this version and let us know if the issue is still there.
Update: Firmware 1.43 has been replaced with 1.44 that has more bug fixes and enhancements. Info can be found here:
Hubitat users that are using @bcopeland’s Z-Wave Firmware Updater tool can use this link to update:
I updated one of my dimmers to 1.43 with Hubitat and Z-Wave Firmware Updater Tool. However, the firmware listed on the device page still shows “1.35”. When changing the driver to the updater tool, it shows “1.43”. I’ve retried aborting and re-uploading with no change in the above. Is this expected or did the update not complete in its entirety?
Well there still appears to be some flicker, but I’ll have to confirm once it gets darker out. Like I’ve always said, either I didn’t notice it before (even though it might have flickered on 1.35) and my brain is just looking to find anything wrong. I haven’t noticed any flickers on any of my can lights though; only the bathroom A19 bulbs. I flashed two of my switches to check it out over the next day or two.
@EricM_Inovelli -Honestly it’s not that bothersome to me. I’d try different bulbs, but it’d literally be the 4th set of replacements. I was try to capture it on camera, but it’s so faint of a flicker the camera didn’t pick it up. Also, it doesn’t always flicker. I noticed it every 4-5 mins for about 10-15 seconds then it would stay solid.
Had a new issue last night I’ve never seen before. The lights in the room turned off on their own but the indicator bar was still saying that it was on. I had assumed my wife turned them off at first, as I was in the next room, but then I heard her ask Alexa to turn the room lights on and there was no response. I had to go on my dashboard and turn them off and back on.
I upgraded mine from 1.35 to 1.43 and now have the flickering, was perfect before. Flashed both target 0 and target 1 successfully. Dimmer is connected to 6 can lights, 8.5w LED, I think they’re GE brand (it’s like a retrofit module with the trim ring attached).
Just to update mine: This morning, I used the can light to get ready for work. It is a single can light on the dimmer; I would say every couple of minutes, I’d get a quick flicker, then it would be fine for a few more minutes. This seemed more noticeable this morning than my bathroom mirror lights (6 connected LED A19 bulbs). I’m hoping it’s not a specific bulb issue because I can’t replace my can lights…
Anyone try to update using Homeseer? When i try to load load the LZW31-SN_1.43.otz file on the zwave tab of the LZW310SN root device, i get the following:
Firmware Update Status:
The button on the device may need to be pressed to start the update
Click the button to choose a DIFFERENT firmware file provided by the manufacturer, to be uploaded to the device.
To start the transfer, press the button on the unit, then press Start. The current file is: LZW31-SN_1.43.otz
Any thoughts on what sequence is it looking for here?
I’ve updated an LZW30 with Homeseer, but not a 31. It did not work when the device was included with security. Homeseer would send an unrecognizable Z-Wave packet to the switch and the switch wouldn’t respond. I excluded and included without security and it updated just fine.
