Hi. Is there an easy way of working out whether a particular device is Z Wave 500 or 700 series? All of my devices are Z Wave plus but some are S2 and smart start compatible - are all devices with S2 and Smart Start 700 series or is there another way of identifying which is which from the device page or elsewhere?
My reason for asking is I've had a couple of Fibaro Double Switch 2s (FGS-223) fail. Each time the same fault - the Q2 is remaining on even when de-powered (welded contact I think). I'm looking at replacing it with the Double Smart Module (FGS-224) but want to make sure whatever I fit as a replacement is up to date.
Thanks. I was just on that page but looking for a reference to 500/700 - so zwave+ v1 is 500 series and wave+ v2 is 700 series?
A bit disappointing as most of my kit is Fibaro. I've kept to Fibaro as apart from this one device it seems to have been reliable with no failures. I mistakenly thought that if 1 Fibaro device was Z wave plus but isn't S2 compatible (Dimmer 2), then the ones that have S2 must be 700 series.
Is there much benefit of 700 series over 500? I have searched the web but can't find much comparing the two.
Well in that case I won't lose too much sleep over those 500 series devices I have. I have just filtered on that Z Wave Alliance page to show only Z Wave Plus v2 devices from Fibaro/Fibar Group. The only v2 devices they make are a couple of hubs and one "Walli" switch.
Can't 700 series in theory be flashed to become Zwave LR devices? I thought I read that somewhere. Whether that really happens is another story, very few manufacturers provide firmware updates in the first place.
