Greetings everyone. I posted this message a few days ago in the Hubitat community, and sent a support ticket to Inovelli, but am now reaching out here for help. I installed an LZW30-SN / Red Series switch in my garage. Using Hubitat, I updated the firmware to 1.19. In the parent app, I changed the color of the LED strip from blue to white. I then scrolled further down, and created a child app in the LED notifications center. LED Effect Color - Notification 1: Red; LED Effect Level - Notification 1: 100%; LED Effect Duration - Notification 1: Indefinitely; LED Effect Type - Notification 1: Fast Blink. When I press On in the child app, the LED strip does not change color.
I created a rule. If the garage freezer is open, turn on Notification 1. The LED strip does not change color.
Can someone please look over my set up and tell me what I am doing wrong? Do I need the LED Color child device? If so, what for?
I think I figured it out. I noticed your deviceType under the Light Switch is deviceType: 4. This corresponds to a Black Series Switch. You need a Red Series Switch in order for it to act like Notifications. You have the wrong driver selected for this product.
You can set custom led parameters with rule machine, but not like notifications rules.
You’re fine to just uncheck the boxes for the security level if that’s what you want. That “Inovelli Z-Wave Smart Switch S2” along with the device type being 4 match up with a black series and not the red series which is very odd though (Red series shows up as Smart Scene Switch).
I updated the firmware using the above link, with Hubitat’s Device Firmware Updater. It successfully installed, but the switch still shows deviceType 4. Do I need to reset/reboot anything on the switch or Hubitat to change to the updated firmware?
Thank you @harjms !!! Apparently I had installed the wrong firmware. You guys were correct about the deviceType 4 being the issue. I installed the correct firmware, am using the latest driver, and now I can change the LED strip!
