Please use this thread to comment on any updates needed for any Wiki article(s) or to suggest new articles.
Here’s how it will work:
- If you notice a mistake in a Wiki thread or would like a thread added, please comment below
- I will add it to the checklist at the bottom of this top thread for visibility
- Someone (either staff or qualified community member) will edit the Wiki article if needed or will reply indicating there does not need to be a change with their reasoning
- Once the Wiki is changed, I will edit your comment with a strike-thru and comment indicating we fixed the issue or it’s resolved
- In addition, I will remove the comment/suggestion from the running list
Appropriate Wiki Article Suggestions:
- How-To’s (ie: setup instructions, cool tricks/automations, etc)
- Company Info (we’ll share what we’re able to)
We’d love any volunteers who would love to contribute to the Wiki. Feel free to reach out (I will also put a form to sign up shortly) to me directly or comment in this thread and I can add you to the list which I also plan on sharing in a separate thread.
Below is a list of topics and corrections.
On Resources | Red Series Dimmer Switch - Manual in the “Firmware Info” > “Parameters” table, parameter 50’s default is listed as “7ms”. I think this meant to say either “7” or “700ms” instead.
Also, on that same table, the description for Parameter 51 is misleading. currently it says “0 = No delay, 1 = 700ms delay”. Shouldn’t “1” mean something else that is not specific to a 700ms delay? For example maybe “Delay is enabled; see parameter 50 to configure the delay’s duration”?
The Blue Dimmer page (Blue Series | Smart 2-1 Switch (On/Off & Dimmer) - Manual) points to the old Red Dimmer in the Overview:
Digital Manual Overview
This is the digital manual for the Blue Series Smart 2-1 Switch (On/Off or Dimmer)(https://community.inovelli.com/t/**wiki-red-series-dimmer-switch/**7299#heading--second-generation).
Thank you! I should’ve put that it was a placeholder for now, but glad to see people are reading it and helping with errors
Are the red series dimmers compatible with the blue ones? Thank you!
They can co-exist if you have a zigbee and zwave hub (Smartthings, Hubitat, Home Assistant with Nortek combo stick, etc.).
They will not “bind” or “associate” to work in 3-way setup without the hub being the middle-man though.
Thank you for your answer!
I do have a Hubitat hub and I am currently using the red series switches/dimmers. I have one of my red series switches that is defective/not working properly, and I see that they are currently sold out (and for quite a while now….don’t think they’ll ever be back in stock). I was wondering if I should go ahead and get the blue series to replace that switch. It will be a 3-way however. What do you recommend I do? Thanks again!!
If you haven’t already you may want to reach out to support regarding the defective switch. Depending on the issue(s) it may be possible to fix without a replacement, or if one is required there may be a support only stash for this purpose.
For the Blue switch:
The SmartThings Edge Device Handler doesn’t have a way to configure Parameter 261 - Relay Sound.
Resources | Wiring Schematics , under “Zigbee Binding Method” says “DIRECTIONS COMING TONIGHT (OCT 24)”. It’s now November 5.
How To's | Setup Zigbee Binding - SmartThings says “we will walk through a few different scenarios where you’d want to use Zigbee binding: Switch to Bulb, Switch to Switch and Switch to Switch & Bulb.”, but only has an example for “Switch to Bulb”.
Resources | Blue Series Smart 2-1 Switch (On/Off & Dimmer) - Manual , under “Pre-Setup”, embeds this image: But the same page, under “Quick Tap Sequences” links to this different image: And Setup Instructions | Blue Series Smart 2-1 Switch (On/Off & Dimmer) - SmartThings , under “Quick Reference Chart”, links to this image:
They seem wildly different, with different letters for different parts of the switch, different category labels, different lists of steps, and (for the 3rd image) completely different instructions (tap the paddle instead of config).
I just added 261 to the edge driver. It sometimes takes a few hours to make it out to your hub though.
