Discussions about existing Z-Wave device and their usage with Z-Way/Z-Cloud/Z-Box
This is good news. Also, I've never understood why the Fibaro dimmer appears as a three channel device. It instantiates three dimmer vDevs, three heat alarm vDevs and three of everything. Even though it's only able to dim a single light circuit. Why does this happen? Is this a Fibaro issue or a Z-Way issue, and is this issue also fixed in 2.3.0?
Yes, at least they have an extra Mulitlevel Switch command class which has something to do with the physical button press. As far as I know this is also visible in Homeseer and Vera (and maybe even in Fibaro Home Center). But in my case, I get three of everything. All vDevs are created three times. Three multilevel switches. Three heat alarms. Three power management alarms. Three energy meters. And so on. This doesn't seem to make the slightest sense, and as far as I can see (I could be wrong), this is only an issue in Z-Way. But perhaps this issue will disappear when the interview is completed correctly?
This is because they announce it in all channels. We have no prior info to disable them. This is something we usually do in our postFix code in ZWave module of Home Automation. You can add there a postfix for those FGD-212 or wait for us to do so as planned.
