Help - RM and Inovelli Red Fan/Light LED Notifications

Used the Alexa Virtual Button code by @mikee385 to get a signal from my door to Alexa to HE.

Made the rule as seen above. The notification (red pulsing LED) comes on appropriately when the virtual button is pressed. But I am unable to get the notification to stop.

Separately - instead of the Virtual thing being a button, is there a way to make it a switch? I find "on/off" easier to wrap my head around than button presses.


I had to use ledEffectAll to stop the notification, with values of 255,0,100,60.

Yea, i saw LEDEFFECTALL as the option to select in the instructions, but that doesn’t seem to be an option for me, not sure if I selected something wrong. I can’t get any notification if I select a child device, but on the parent, I can get the notification going despite no “LEDEffectAll” option.

Any ideas?


I use the driver from Innovelli. Tons of options. Much easier to control in rules.

I also have a Virtual Alexa Switch, if it would help:

Stick a log or some other type of notification after your Wait.

That way you’ll know if the problem is with your Wait or stopNotification.

I realize that's a fan switch (and I only have Blue 2-1s), but are those screenshots from the switch driver, or some other Inovelli tool? I don't see a way to recreate your screenshots from the Blue 2-1 driver, but I could be missing something obvious (wouldn't be first time!)

Since Jonathan's no longer active, I'm going to move away from his app so I'm exploring options... Thank you!

I use the notifications in several rules on my hubs, I have several RED Switches with the full Bar LED, and a few Fan/Switch combos with the two LEDs -- and I use them for notifications all the time -- I'm at work right now, but when I get home tonight, I'll see if I can post some screenshots of my rules. However my memory says I'm using the Red Fan/Light Inovelli driver as @SmartHomePrimer suggests, and I'm simply using start and stop notification commands.

I don't think I'm using LEDEFFECTALL at all.



Those are screenshots (just a fraction of what's there becuase you scroll, and scroll... :joy:) from the Inovelli driver for the LZW36 (which is the Red series Z-Wave Fan/Light controller the OP has).

Ah, nice - thanks!

Interesting that the 2-1s don't have similar options like that... Or if they do, I haven't figured out how to surface them. But I'll keep playing around -- I'm still just in the very early stages of this exploration. Thanks again!

My memory was poor...but heres what im doing to use the notifications!

thanks! love this!

setIndicator is not an option for me...

I checked both the parent and the child devices...

These are some of the options available to me...

I've used the start/stop notification too. I'm at work again, and don't have a handy example, but check these things out:

I'm pretty sure these are the resources I used.


Thanks - tried these already no luck...

I was able to configure the notifications for my garage door contact sensor - however, the start notification is easy, but to get it to stop I used the "wait" until closed, and when closed "start notification" with the code for no LED - but now the light LED is always off instead of the usual faint blue level indicator.

ALSO - when I tried to set the indicator to the child switch it didn't work, so I did the LED indicator to the parent switch and it worked... BUT now the light no longer responds to voice commands (via Alexa) :rage:

Any help is appreciated.

As an example, here are a few of my notification rules that are working well.

I just converted all 13 of my LED Mini-Dashboard notifications to RM this evening, and although it's pretty tedious at first, it went quickly once I got into a groove. Clipboard is your friend! I'm enjoying some of the additional flexibility that RM offers above the Mini Dashboard app, so this move has been a win for me.

To reset/clear a notification, "ledEffectAll/One(# if One, 255,0,100,255)" works great.

This one uses all 7 leds, solid (no animation), green (~85), 5% level


This one uses just middle led (4), solid, blue (~170), 50% level


This one uses the top 3 leds, solid, blue, 50% level


Wish I could help. I checked all my rules, and I only use setIndicator.

I'll try to play around with a Blue 2in1 this weekend, i have a couple stashed away for a rainy day, and see if I can figure the notifications out. I vaguely recall struggling with it before.


I appreciate these....

Few questions:

  1. is Bdrm Foyer the name of the parent or the child device?
  2. Is this a fan/light switch? Red?
  3. Where do you get the (1, 85, 5, 255) numbers? My strings are more like 16070330... (I think this is because you have blue switches and I have red)

Can anyone confirm if this is correct? - I tried changing the device type to the "Inovelli Fan/Light LZW36" device, which gave me more options in the "select custom command" area, but I think this is what broke my Alexa connection, when I turned it back to this (the default setting), now my Alexa can control the light again. Also I have the LZW36 driver installed, do I need a different one? It seems these Red Series Fan/Light Switches are no longer being made by Inovelli


So I think this part of my problem - I think the notification needs to be on the parent device, but when I have it set up this way... the default, the parent device doesn't show up in my list of "switches" to select from.

When I changed the device to the LZW36 Fan+Switch, it showed up with some options (although not "set indicator" nor "AllLED.."), but then it broke the connection to Alexa - We say "good night Alexa" to turn off the lights while in bed which is critical if it doesn't work.
