Aeotec Wallmote

Post by rjay » Wednesday 01 March 2017 10:15

Hello,
Noticed these are now available in Aus;

http://www.smarthome.com.au/aeotec-wallmote-quad.html

Are these supported natively within Domoticz? Anyone using one (in or outside of Aus) and thoughts?

thanks :D

Hi rjay,

not yet, this wallmote makes use of CentralScene functionality which is not implemented in OpenZwave.
They are currently building support for it so I expect it to be released soon.

thanks for the prompt response! Ok no problems I will keep an eye out, probably a month or two before I can afford to lash out on a couple of them anyways. They look super useful a few different scenarios though, looking forward to it!

thanks

Thanks @Thorian, sounds like it is working for some crew? We just have to wait then for the latest Open Z-Wave to be incorporated into Domoticz?

ok no problems, do we know how often that happens (the integration of the latest versions of Open Z-Wave) into Domoticz?

I have the Wallmote but it looks like it is still not supported. Am I correct? Anyone have experience?

Interesting, I had held off buying them purely as I was waiting to see them fully supported. Almost pulled the trigger this month as I thought they were all go now

Current BETA domoticz with 1.4-2501-g5af6780-dirty SUPPORTS WallMote:

#1 Upgrade (I'm using a dev platform for that on Orange Pi Zero with stable Armbian (Ubuntu based)
#2 Remove WallMote
#3 Include WallMote again (I'm using secure mode)
#4 Go to scenes add and click the button it will be added as activator.

I managed to get four buttons so far (as ON) - don't know yet how to add them as OFF...

This is some good news! Let us know if you get the off working as well. Some screenshots would be great as well.

What is the quality/feel of the Wallmote like? can you feel the button presses in each quadrant (like a micro switch) or is it purley just touch/tap ?

Gentle touch - just like smartphone. I'm setting it up as Toggle switch for various appliances for the first test and try to find out what is the way to get 8 buttons in total...

Sweet! yeh I figured it was only four buttons. Yeh I am look for it for the same toggles and dimmers. Way to switch lights, appliances on etc. Guessing dimmer works by using a "long touch" on one of the quadrants?

Yes, dimmer supposed to be a 'smear' on the button as the manual above states. I haven't got any dimmers, so I've setup four scenes created virtual switches with JSON toggle for the real buttons/devices.

So far - works as charm!

@soetew a thread you might find interesting is the one over at
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=12539

the Remotec Scene Master device is pretty similar in operation/functionality to the Wallmote it seems.
