Z-Wave JS Aeotec WallMote Quad Migration

After migration Z-Wave, followed instruction Z-Wave legacy (1.4) -> Z-Wave JS Official add-on. Most of the devices are able to detect normally but Aeotec WallMote Quad(ZW130). Digging some posts, here is what I did.

  1. Press and hold the action button in the back of the ZW130 for 2 secs until the orange led flash. Get into wake up mode. You could check the log under Z-Wave JS add-on to see it completes the interview process… Picture
  2. (option) In Developer Tools, you could check the events and listen to "zwave_js_event ". Press any button on the ZW130 and the event should pop out.
  3. I used automation to manage the buttons.
    Example: touch Button 1
platform: event
event_type: zwave_js_event
event_data:
  node_id: 17
  label: Scene 001

After upgraded the OS to 2021.3.0 and Z-Wave JS to 0.1.10, it seems the zwave_js_event has changed. The message is now property_key: "001" instead of label: Scene 001

I just moved to the zwave js add-on and the WallMote is one of the few items that is stuck in “Node Awake: No.” status. When I put mine into wake up mode, by holding the button until it flashes orange, I get :

11:51:48.653 CNTRLR « [Node 014] received wakeup notification

I’ve left it flashing orange for 10 minutes, but nothing else is showing in the logs. How long did it take for yours to wake up and join?

UPDATE: I ended up just doing a reset on the WallMote and then rejoining the network and that worked just fine.

Updated the OS to 2021.4.1 and JS to 0.1.17. The Wallmote isn’t working anymore. After change the event value from zwave_js_event to zwave_js_value_notification everything goes fine now.

platform: event
event_type: zwave_js_value_notification
event_data:
  node_id: 17
  property_key: '001'

With ZWave JS do you have only this 4 button?
Before there where also the “long” button?

Would also like to know if the long-press still works as I currently use that.
Also is this actually compatible, as the device isnt listed on the ZWave JS device list

Yes this device is still supported by zwavejs.
Here is a link if interested.

Here are a couple of other threads that may help out:

Thank you so much!

I can’t get this working at all… i have tried re-connecting it 20 times but i just get the battery status, and nothing from the bottons. When i try to listen to “zwave_js_event” there is nothing displayed.
How did you guys solve it? Using Zwave JS.

WallMote Quad: Battery level
100,0 %
WallMote Quad: Low battery level
Normal
WallMote Quad: Power Management - Battery is charging
WallMote Quad: Power Management - Battery is fully charged
WallMote Quad: Power Management - Charge battery now
WallMote Quad: Power Management - Charge battery soon
sensor.node_16_node_status
sensor.wallmote_quad_power_management_battery_level_status

Thanks!

Edit, nevermind! I tried one more time and then i wen’t to the logs, and i saw it there! Works awesome :smiley:

Is it possible to use slide functionality in Z-Wave JS?
