I have just bought one of these:
They don't seem to have got round to publishing the driver for it, but have done one for their otherwise identical 2-button device. I could fiddle around and see if I can adapt it, but before I do, has anyone already written it?
After receiving this I paired it and it automatically got assigned to the RGBGenie Button Controller which recognised all its buttons and capabilities. So I am sorted
I have just added one and it sees it as the RGBGenie Button Controller too however I don't receive anything from it when the buttons are pressed, if I check events it shows nothing. Am I missing something? Also on the buttons themselves, I only get and LED indicator flash when I press the "I" on buttons and nothing when I press the "O" off buttons. Is this normal? I have even used Vesternet's own driver for this (Vesternet VES-ZB-WAL-012 4 Zone Wall Controller) and again it appears to do nothing Do you have any suggestions?
Have you tried with the device very near the hub just in case where you have it the signal cannot reach? Otherwise it may just be a faulty device. I guess you could try removing and pairing again....
Thanks @Inge_Jones for your reply. This was doing my head in, it was only by clicking around I tried the 'add device by brand' then selected vesternet 8 button controller, paired it and it worked like an absolute charm
I bought the same controller and I've paired it with HE but none of the button commands seem to be coming through. Exactly the same behaviour 'Evolving.Home' was describing above. I did initially try adding device by brand and choosing the vesternet 8 button controll option but that didn't work. I then tried removing and readding it a couple of times but still not working.
Any ideas what may be wrong or how to fix it? This is what the log shows immediately after I first paired it:
I managed to resolve this. For some reason one of my powered zigbee devices (innr wall plug) wasn't playing nicely and it kept booting off the button controller. I unplugged it from the wall and then paired the button conroller and it was working perfectly. Then I put the plug back and everything is all good.
