Which Zwave USB Stick?

Which Zwave USB stick should I get to update my firmware on the gen 2 red dimmers and black on/off?

This is the one we use and recommend to people!

I have one of them. I would say be careful as there is a little bit of a learning curve to it (especially in regards to FW upgrades, Home Assistant installs, etc). I think I am finally over the hump and am overall happy with it now.

It helps to have a raspberry Pi and spare SD card to download z-way’s rasbian image which comes pre-installed with their “smart home” platform. That is definitely the easiest way to do firmware upgrades. Figuring out their firmware upgrade options can be intimidating initially though.

@aolexy If you have questions, feel free to reach out to me if you go that route. I have been through most of the pain points of late with that product :slight_smile:
