I have the dimmer which turns off occasionally, there’s a thread about this already.
I excluded the switch again and included it securely to see if that made a difference.
There are 5 devices created when included.
Now, when I physically turn off the switch, or turn off the switch, the device updates the parent device, not the multilevel switch device.
So when then lights are on in the living room, the switch on the web interface reports that they are still off.
The Watts, however, are correct, they update within seconds of changes.
Here’s the log of turning off, then on.
|Nov-19 19:09:36||Z-Wave||Device: Closter TV Ceiling Lights Watts Set to 52.8 (52.8 Watts)|
|Nov-19 19:09:31||Z-Wave||Device: Closter TV Ceiling Lights parent Set to ON|

For comparison: here is the log of a LZW30-SN
|Nov-19 19:11:59||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Hall lights switch Set to ON|
|Nov-19 19:11:55||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Hall lights watts Set to 25 (25 Watts)|
|Nov-19 19:11:54||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Central Scene Set to 2000|
|Nov-19 19:11:52||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Central Scene Set to 2003|
|Nov-19 19:08:38||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Hall lights watts Set to 0 (0 Watts)|
|Nov-19 19:08:37||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Hall lights switch Set to OFF|
|Nov-19 19:08:36||Z-Wave||Device: Closter Foyer Central Scene Set to 1000|
Notice that the LZW30-SN doesn’t change the status of the parent, only that of the appropriate child device called switch.
