So I have a GE Enbrighten Z-Wave Plus light switch. When I press up the switch relay in the switch turns on the physical connected light. I also have a double tap on and off simple rule that I use a to trigger a relay for the ceiling fan in the room. I recently added some led light strip for under the bed. I noticed that this switch supports press and hold so I have tried to make a rule to turn the under bed led strip on when I press and hold up. The rule works but the internal relay/switchseems to also be triggered when you press and hold up or down. I can't seem to find a setting to disconnect turning the room light on or off when I press and hold.
Any idea why the internal switch gets triggered when I press and hold?
perfect! that's awesome!.. This is exactly why I love the openness of some meal to create their own drivers.. No idea what this manufacturer had in mind tying these two features together. unless this meant to be a dimmer
The Enbrighten/Jasco/Ultrapro switches don't have a "bulb mode" where they aren't changing the circuit status on each press up or down (or press and hold as you're seeing). AFAIK you don't have that option w/these switches. You'd need an Inovelli or Zooz switch w/bulb mode (and multi-tap) enabled.
W/@JasonJoel's excellent drivers you can set up to six buttons - Top single/double/triple, Bottom singe/double/Triple. But there is no bulb mode for any driver to enable.
If you want to control three devices on/off separately w/the same Enbrighten switch, I think you're going to have to use single, double, and triple taps up (on) and down (off).
Another option (which I've used) is mount a simple battery powered button next to the existing switch to control the additional LED strip. In some cases using a separate button can also allow you the additional benefit of placing it in an more convenient position than the existing light switch. This would require that the LED strip is smart, or connected to a smart plug/outlet.
yeah I have the zooz's decor scene controllers right beside each of us in the bed so we can control the house and bedroom from our bed. these switches are great and you could do what you said and use a double gang switch plate and it will look like it belongs there!
It's just weird that single press up turns the relay on (expected result) and press and hold turns the relay on and triggers a press and hold (why trigger 2 actions with 1 press) Like I'm trying to imagine why it functions like this. Press and hold should be it's own seperate command just like triple and double tap is. seems weird to tie together the tap and tap and hold.
