So I just received my order for the Hubitat Elevation Model C-7, and a pack of two UltraPro ZW4008 switches today as part of my testing effort for replacing my family's Insteon devices. The Hubitat is super cool and configurable, and it makes debugging super easy with all of the logging output it lets you configure. I'm excited to learn more about it!
I created two basic rules that link the two switches so when you turn one on, it turns them both on, and turns them both off when you turn one off and each is attached to its own LED load. When I activate one of the switches via the hub's web-page, it's almost instant, and both lights turn on within milliseconds of issuing the command which is great!
When I turn one of the switches on/off, the result is dramatically different. It's about a 1-3 second delay before the other switch is activated. Very similar to the behaviour described here: "light-switch-3-second-delay-with-automation-rules"
It doesn't seem to be related to the network or anything, because when I watch the real-time logs. They don't even appear until about the same time the other switch activates, and describe all events as happening within a second which appears great.
I read something about there being a multi-tapping delay which the switch seems to wait to see if one is going to double tap the switch instead of just the single press, and in that particular case, I'm wondering if there is a way to disable that functionality, since I only ever want these switches to function as single taps regardless of however many taps physically occur, and to issue their messages to the hub immediately instead of waiting.
Lastly, I discovered that if you press and hold the on/off on the rocker switch, it sends the command much more quickly, which is how I'm hoping to set up the quick switch taps.
I've been Googling for hours trying to find an answer on how to set the delay on these switches, and tried a device driver listed on GitHub and also changing the type of the devices to Generic Z-Wave Switch, Generic Z-Wave Plus Scene Switch, and Generic Z-Wave Plus Switch, thinking that that would somehow expose different configuration elements, or somehow dumb the device down
Is this possible to configure on my end through Hubitat? If not, are there switches that I can just purchase that are less fancy without this particular delay?
