I have added a Homeseer HS-WS100+ as Generic Z-Wave CentralScene Switch. How do I use the double and triple taps to trigger rules? These should work as buttons (double tap up is button 1, double tap down is button 2, etc.) but I can't seem to get it working. When I select "Front Porch Light Button 2 pushed" as a trigger for my Goodbye rule and test it by double tapping down on my Front Porch Light switch, nothing happens.
First you should be sure the WS100+ supports scenes.
Next you go to the events section in the driver.
For every combination of buttons (i.e. Up, Dwn, 2xUp, 2x Dwn etc) you will see the Hubitat driver name for that "button" use them to make your automation.
If you don't see the buttons come up then the device or the driver do not support scenes.
BTW: scenes is the "jargon" used to describe the multiple button push capability.
Example on one of my switches:
Thanks! That pointed me in the right direction. In ST, each single, double, or triple tap or hold acts as a discreet button, so you would use button number 1 through 8 to trigger your actions. Double tap down maps as button 2, so if I want to turn off all the lights in the house by double tapping the switch by my front door, I trigger the rule simply with button 2.
I appears it works a bit differently here. The double tap and hold actions do show up in the events, but UP is always button 1, and DOWN is always button 2, with "was held" or "was doubleTapped" appearing in the event description. Changing the trigger in RM from "button 2 pushed" (using button 2 because in ST double tap down maps to button 2) to "button 2 doubleTapped" (using button 2 because in HE down is always button 2) fixed the problem. My rule now fires when I double tap down. THANK YOU!
There doesn't appear to be any provision for triple tap. I've had this switch for about 2 years and have not had a need for triple tap yet, but if I ever do I'd like to be able to use it. Any ideas? Also, the long press (or hold as HE calls it) always controls the local load, so it doesn't seem like that would be a convenient way to trigger rules if I wanted to. Is there any way to disable this?
Its my understanding that Hubitat only does single and double taps.
I think the issue here is that no custom driver exists for this device for HE. If it did and were used, shouldn't HE be able to take advantage of all capabilities the device offers?
I'm not sure the reason for this limitation but I don't believe its the driver. I have a 200+ with a custom driver and no triple taps.
That's a huge bummer! I'll have to keep this in mind when shopping for devices in the future.
You might request they extend the scene buttons to include more than two.
