Z-wave Polling

I am using the Z-wave Polling internal app on my mains non-plus devices, and it seems to be working fine. However, I have 2 questions:

  1. Can the polling interval for each of my devices be changed? How?
  2. Using RM for polling only appears to be able to start or stop polling of a device. Is that correct? Can't be used to change the poling interval?
  1. Only with RM
  2. In RM, use a periodic trigger of your choosing then your action is to poll device(s) you choose.

Would you mind providing an example of using RM to perform polling?

So when you use RM to poll on some set interval, it only polls a single time? It is not adding the device to the Z-waving Polling app that will continue to poll that device at the default interval?

My example in previous post will poll every 5 minutes "to infiniti and beyond". If you create a rule like this, you should probably not also have Poller app running. When I had non-plus devices, I polled one set every five minutes using one rule another set every 10 minutes using a separate rule.

Why do you suggest not also running the polling app? I have moved 15 devices into a Rule at 5 minutes, but there are still 4 devices that I want polled at the default 10 seconds, so I left them in the polling app.

That works. I meant not running Polling app on same devices involved with rule. Sorry for confusion.

Curious. I have a single Zwave (non-plus) smoke detector. Looks like it only wakes up and checks in once a week.

Would it be worth polling it? Obviously would impact battery life.

Memory says that poller app is restricted to switches/dimmers; i.e. devices that can be operated manually leading to a discrepancy between their state in Hubitat and actual state.

I don’t think a discrepancy of state can happen very easily with sensors like your smoke alarm.
