Found 2 smalls bugs just getting started

I am brand new to hubitat. My C-8 is running build
1 Room - Office
1 Generic Z-Wave Plus Dimmer - Lamp

Bug #1 - when I open the mobile App on iphone - then choose Lights/Switches
I see the same room repeated 3 times

Bug #2 - dashboard does not seem to update
Plug Tile starts off
I hit it once - the lamp turns on - the tile turns to an hourglass
I wait a while - the hourglass does not change
I navigate to Rooms - then navigate back to Dashboard - lamp is still on but is displaying "Plug Tile Off"
I hit it once - then it turns yellow and shows that it is on.
Hitting it again turns it off and works as expected.

How many ZWave devices do you have? And, how far away from other ZWave devices or Hubitat is this device?

I only have 1 ZWave device, and it is 16 inches away from the Hubitat

Leave Dashboard out of the picutre for a minute and try running the commands and checking the state directly from the devcie detail page. It's likely wrong there too, I'm which case there may be some fix, but Dashboard (or any app) only knows what it shows here, so this is a good first step to pinpoint the actual problem.

This is an issue I've seen reported a few times that I assume will be fixed at some point.

Not the clearest, but it looks like the device detail page is working as expected? The idea is to see whether it matches both the real-world device state and what you see on Dashboard.

@user6406 I know you said you have only the 1 zwave device but can you post your z-wave details page?

Sort-of: when I hit the on button the light always comes on
when I hit the off button the light always goes off

But the display of the "state" is wrong.
I hit the on button once the light comes on - the state says off
I hit the on button a second time - the light stays on - now the state says on

He's asking you to post a screenshot of the page that appears when you click the following:


No... go to yourhubip>>settings>>z-wave details. The whole page not just the device line.

Ok was looking for a ghost... In the dash use the dimmer template instead of the plug template,

Changing the tile to a dimmer did not fix the issue.
I click it once - the light comes on but the tile shows the hourglass.
I navigate away to "Rooms" come back to dashboard - the tile is showing as off.

Is the source code available to the "Generic Z-Wave Plus Dimmer" driver ?

No as it is built in. Only user created drivers are open.

If I had a copy of the source code to "Generic Z-Wave Plus Dimmer" driver, I think I could hack it to make it work for this device. Is there a proper channel/method to ask for the source code ?

No. You could create your own in groovy though. There are examples in the repository. One thing you could do in this thread is to re pair the device and post the fingerprint from a live log and then tag @bcopeland

Just to make sure all bases have been covered... On the device details page, please click CONFIGURE. Any time the driver type is changed, one needs to manually click CONFIGURE as this sends the device the proper reporting configuration. It may not help in your particular case, but it often does. Note: you will not see any visual confirmation of something happening when you hit the CONFOGURE button. You can look in the logs as typically something shows up there. After clicking configure, try turning the device on and off from the device details page again and note whether or not the status updates correctly.

What brand/model is this Z-Wave dimmer switch? Is it listed on Hubitat's supported/compatible devices list? Is there a firmware update available for it?

There are a few brands that are known for this exact issue you have reported. Many of those, simply need to have their firmware upgraded to resolve the issue.

"Configure" - did not help the issue.

This is a Qolsys PD-100
This is not on the supported/compatible list.
I can not find any firmware online.

I removed the device and re-paired.

Here is the info from logs, @bcopeland - are you able to help with this ?
