Respond to Button Press in Domoticz

Post by bluedog » Sunday 13 August 2017 1:03

I'm just learning about z-wave and Domoticz, but I am amazed that handling button presses are so elusive!

I have a dimmer (Aeotec Nano ZW111) that has two inputs for physical switches S1 and S2.

S1 and S2 can be configured to trigger other nodes.

The dimmer is called "Lounge Light" in the screenshot below...
S1 triggers all nodes listed in Group 3.
S2 triggers all nodes listed in Group 4.

This works well to trigger devices directly, but I would like to trigger Domoticz itself. Since the USB controller is node 1, I have tried adding that to a group - as you can see, but there seems to be no way to receive this event in Domoticz.

The device triggers a Basic Command Class when S1 and S2 are pressed.

Is there some way to do this?

After reading some other threads I see that the answer is to add an Activation Device to a scene!
