SmartThings Edge Drivers?

This is also how they show up in the Smart Lighting app in SmartThings. I am not sure how to create scene automations using the new edge driver and an Inovelli Red. Now that I have a few of my Reds switched over I have several button 1/2/3s that show up in lighting automations.

The Z-Wave button edge driver with an aeotec button controller represents the button actions as shown in the attached screenshot.

For now we just have to ignore those extra entries. If you scroll down you should be able to find the actual device. If you choose the actual Inovelli device you can then use the button mappings like in the past.

Any plans on child devices being used for edge devices? What about for black series switches?

At this point, it’s generally better to avoid Groovy apps like ABC button controller and smart lighting with Edge drivers. Edge, and ST Schema and all the newer integration methods handle button capabilities and multi component devices differently than Groovy did. So they generally don’t play nicely together.

Using the Smart Lighting app, the main device is NOT listed, only the buttons. When using the SmartThings routines, I do see a list of button 1-3 pressed, double pressed, held etc like in the screenshot. Unlike the Inovelli scene instructions, there are not 8 buttons. Do I assume up is button 1 and down is button 2 and then use the pressed X times?

With some experimenting I found that button 1 = down and button 2 = up. The button option in automations called “Pressed 2 times” does not appear to work. However, “double pressed” does work.

Hi guys, is the nzw30 series supported for this driver?

@EricM_Inovelli
Any update on when the edge drivers will be able to handle child devices (specifically for black series local and remote control)? I would love to move my devices to local control. Thanks!

No. Presently there are just beta drivers with partial functionality for the LZW30 and 31 series.

Yes, they’re supported by edge drivers.
I have NZW31S on edge driver, created by Mariano. Invite can be found on SmartThings community

If anyone is interested: SmartThings Edge Drivers: LZW30-SN, LZW30, LZW31-SN, LZW31

Everything should be supported except for associations (still working on that).

hi, I understand the bulbs are supported by the smartthings’ standard edge drivers, aren’t they? I tried excluding them, factory resetting them and then adding them again but they’re still running on the device handler instead of the edge drivers . am I missing something?

@tangelogee was able to include his with the Edge Driver after removing the DH. I’ll link his post below.

The common understanding is that the Github Production fork is the one that directs which Edge drives are loaded upon adding the device to the hub. If you look at the Production branch for the Edge drivers in Github, there is not a Zwave Bulb directory as there is in the Main Branch. So it seems that ST has not yet decided to incorporate the Zwave bulbs into the Edge rollout.

That being said, there is a Zwave-bulb directory in the Beta branch and the Ilumin bulbs are listed there. I’m not sure, but I think these drivers are available to users that signed up for the ST Edge Beta program. So based on my limited understanding of this implementation, you’d have to be a member of the ST Beta program to get those drivers to load. @tangelogee may be able to shed more light on this.

AFAIK, Inovelli has not released their own beta for the bulbs . . . only the switches.

They do use the SmartThings Edge drivers, but you need to remove the DTHs for the bulbs and some other devices from your account at https://graph.api.smartthings.com/

Here’s a screenshot of all of the DTHs I’ve removed before the bulb used the Edge drivers.

Once I removed them, the bulb installed using the ST Edge drivers. I’m not sure why the NZW DTHs needed to be removed, but they did. I haven’t added the blue series DTH to my account yet, so that one shouldn’t matter.

Hello, I am new to the Edge driver update and I have Smartthings v3 hub running Inovelli LZW30 / LZW31 switches currently. Can you please point me to instructions with all steps to update to Edge drivers? Thanks!

Hello and thanks. That link took me a page that knows my hub location (street name) and had links to install the red and black series. But no clue where it installed them. I was logged into Groovy at same time so I think that’s how it knew me.

But is there something I need to do first at the Samsung end as far as getting off Groovy? I saw videos on this but not clear. If you know a list of steps for Smartthings v3 hub, please let me know. Thanks.

So at this point, if you want to covert your Inovellis over to Edge, you are going to have to remove the switch from the hub, remove the DH from the IDE and then re-add the switch. It should pick up the Edge driver during the re-add.

Once you’ve added, open the device’s page in the app, and select Driver from the 3-dot menu at the top right. You may see both the stock Edge driver and the Inovelli-made one and you can choose between them.

If you don’t want to go through the trouble of removing and re-adding, I would just wait for ST to do their automatic conversion, after which you should be able to switch to the Inovelli-made driver.
