Groups -> Room Lighting

C-7 |

I got excited and moved all my groups (mostly room centric) to room lighting. But they seem to work inconsistently. In my earlier setting I had button controllers for 2, 3, 4 way switches (inovelli) on top of groups. With the move to room lighting, can I assume I do not need the button controllers as well? Is the existence of "orphan" button controllers why I may be seeing inconsistent behavior - switches turn on and lights remain off - I have to force the lights on (separately) to get things to desired outcome.

In this setup, I have 3 switches in different parts of the hallway and three lights they collectively control. When any of the switches is turned on/off, I want all switches and lights to turn on/off. The lights are independently controllable (for dimming). I have intentionally turned "off" "off" for the lights in this table. Is this right? Switches are zwave. Can lights are zigbee.

You should not be using the switches controlled by the app as Means to Activate. That is circular, and bound to mess up.

@bravenel - Is it best for me to use a group or button control to manage shared-fate switches like the 3 or 4 way setups using inovelli zwave switches?
