I've spent quite a bit of time running this down and have a configuration that works. Thought I'd share it here in case it helps someone in the future. I recently had an old GE Z-Wave dimmer go bad and replaced it with one of these Honeywells. I bought a few as spares a few months ago when Costco had a sale. When I paired it, it came up as a "device." I changed the driver to Generic Smart Z-Wave Dimmer and I thought everything worked. After a few days, I realized that when I turned the switch on/off physically the status did not change in dashboards. I downloaded Botched1 driver and had the same issue. Then I realized that there was a built-in driver for GE Enbrighten Z-Wave Dimmer. Switched to that, and everything seems to be working. I do think that S2 security might be at the heart of this, but when I paired it, I accepted the defaults and got here. Hope this might help others.
Thank you for this. When I set mine up a few months ago it defaulted to a GE Smart Fan Dimmer. It worked but glitched every now and again. So hopefully this works for me.
So this stopped updating again. I'm using the built-in Enbrighten Smart Dimmer driver. It does not show the correct on/off status and therefore I have automations that are failing. Anyone else seeing this?
Try the generic z-wave plus dimmer driver
That does indeed work correctly as far as reporting status. It does take away the button double tapping feature. Been debating losing that capability for more reliable automations.
ahh.. Use the Generic Z-Wave Plus Scene Dimmer driver.. That has the button features
Awesome. Every test case I have worked. Thanks. Now to switch the other (like) devices to use this driver. I have a ragtag group of Z-Wave/Z-Wave Plus GE/Jasco/Honeywell/Inovelli switches that I have bought over the years. Slowly replacing the old devices as they die. I think I've lose 4 or 5 of the original GE Z-Wave switches so far. Thank you so much for this.
