Hello,
I am trying to do the same on Zwave.
The automation is triggerred but the button does not do anything.
Do you spot any issue ?

Hi @TheDarthFather, are you using the deprecated z-wave integration?

Yes,
Found the issue as well. Integer on the deprecated version vs string on the new one.
I replaced ‘{{ scene_id == ‘‘1’’ and scene_value_id == ‘‘0’’ }}’ with ‘{{ scene_id == 1 and scene_value_id == 0 }}’.
PS: I tried this before, but it seems I have to re-create the automation as well :slight_smile:

Stupid question: Why is the Remotec ZRC-90 not available as a device with entities in the Zwave-JS integration? And how to get it in?

Hi,

Nice feature! But I am still struggling with this device. Can’t seem to get it work in Homeassistant.

My Z-wave in HA is managed by my Fibaro Home Center 2, which I added in HA/ configuration.yaml.
All other Fibaro Z-wave devices show up as entities in Home Assistant. Except this Remotec Panel…

I managed to include it in Fibaro Home center, but I want to use it in HA…

Are there any people who sorted this out?

Regards,
Ludwig

Hi Ludwig, this blueprint only works if you use the zwave-js integration in HA. I’m afraid I can’t test it for you in combination with a HC2. I used to own a Fibaro HC2 in the past but moved everything to HA (including an Aeotec Z-Wave USB stick) to manage my zwave network. It will take some time to rebuild your network, scenes and (LUA) scripts but once I did I never looked back.

Thanks Rule!

I think I have to look for an alternative panel :slight_smile:
Switching everything to Aetoec does not sound like an inviting idea :wink:

Regards,
Ludwig
