GE/Jasco Z-Wave Plus Motion Dimmer Driver
This is a driver for the GE Motion Dimmer device. It differs from the in-box driver in that it exposes all of the device parameters, and uses a parent/child structure to put the dimmer and motion sensors in their own child devices.
It has been tested with a GE 26933 motion dimmer.
- Configuration of button inversion variable.
- Configuration of motion and light parameters.
- Light Off Time, Motion sensor on/off, Motion sensitivity, Light Sensing for light ON/OFF, Motion Reset time, Dimmer steps/duration, Switch Mode
- Commands added for direct access to the following features:
- Default Dimmer Level - Can use this in rules (via custom commands in RM, for example) to set the default dimmer level. May be useful for mode/time based lighting where you want the light to come on a different level than the level it was at when it was turned off.
- Manual / Vacancy / Occupancy motion lighting modes. Can be used in rules (via custom commands in RM, for example) to put motion lighting in Manual mode at night for bedroom switches.
- Uses the in-box Dimmer and Motion Sensor component drivers for the child devices - no need to install additional drivers for those.
NOTE 1: Switch Mode simply makes the physical buttons work like a switch. And note that in that mode the physical buttons DO NOT obey the Default Dimmer Level - ON always = 100% level.
- Install Driver code in Hubitat
