SmartThings Edge Drivers?

Any updates on these? Need any help testing?

@EricM_Inovelli any progress made on the edge drivers?

Beta drivers are being shared on the forums for a significant amount of products already.

We have beta drivers for the LZW30(-SN), and LZW31(-SN) in our github. Currently doesn’t support notifications and associations, but everything else should be supported:

Eric, do you have the URL for the channel so we can install them and keep them updated as you make updates?

How does one install these drivers from GitHub? I am using some Edge drivers from a developer on the SmartThings Community and his drivers install by using the Add Device option in the SmartThings app. Is there some way to do that here with the Inovellie Edge drivers? Thanks.

The easiest way is for the developer to create a shareable URL for their driver channel. Then all you need to do is login and approve installing them. You will need to exclude you devices and re-pair them, though.

Oh, yeah, there is that: excluding and re-paring. Forgot about that. Not sure if I want to do that until the drivers are final. I was wondering about it all because when I press the toggle in my bedroom it takes a second or so before the lights actually come on and I figure that’s because it’s not being executed locally. Thanks.

Is this a load wired to the switch? If so, it has nothing to do with local or cloud, as that doesn’t factor into a load wired to the switch when you press the paddle. That’s the 700ms delay. You can turn that off.

Not sure what you mean by load wired to the switch. This is a black dimmer switch with no neutral. How do I turn off the 700ms delay? Is that in the instructions or something I can do with the SmartThings app? I suppose it might be in the manual which I still have so I could check. Ha. Thanks.

Sorry, I have only used the developer method of installing the drivers. I’ll get it setup the other way to make it easier for you guys.

Open the switch settings in the app. You will see an entry for it. Firmware 1.19 and later.

Duh. I forgot about the 3 dot menu and edit/settings. Thanks.

I’m getting used to the new development process, so I’m not sure if these URLs will be for the final version, but . . .

LZW30/LZW30-SN
SmartThings. Add a little smartness to your things.

LZW31/LZW31-SN
SmartThings. Add a little smartness to your things.

Try it out and let me know how it goes.

This is awesome, thank you for sharing.

Any thoughts on when the notifications may be added?

I’m not quite sure. I’m trying to find the best way to do it. I don’t know if it would be a custom capability or what. I’d prefer to have it integrate into the rules / automation that are already built into SmartThings. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

For notifications, easiest way is automation, IF something, THEN Notify.
Otherwise, It would need to be custom capability

@EricM_Inovelli I am testing a lot of Edge drivers on SmartThings.
Is Inovelli Dimmer NZW31 w/Scene supported with this driver?

I’d guess custom capability would be your best bet.

Those drivers won’t work with our 1st gen devices.

Edit… So I had some issues with my switch yesterday. Possibly related to testing the edge drivers, possibly related to my zwave mesh or even smartthings itself. Anyway, during my testing, it looks like you can’t create child devices. This is a huge deal, specifically the led color and the disabling physical switch. Any plans on getting child devices on the edge platform? Thanks!
