Zooz ZEN31 RGBW Dimmer

Can anyone please expand on the the use of the dimmer channels on the ZEN31 device? I have one hooked up to a single color LED strip to one of the RGBW outputs. I have sliders to control channels dimmer and dimmer1-5. I wrongly assumed that there would be a 1 to 1 correlation between a dimmer channel and the RGBW outputs.

Dimmer dimmer "Dimmer" (gLED) {channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer"}
Dimmer dimmer1 "Dimmer 1" (gLED) {channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer1"}
Dimmer dimmer2 "Dimmer 2" (gLED) {channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer2"}
Dimmer dimmer3 "Dimmer 3" (gLED) {channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer3"}
Dimmer dimmer4 "Dimmer 4" (gLED){ channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer4"}
Dimmer dimmer5 "Dimmer 5" (gLED){ channel="zwave:device:211467b2:node48:switch_dimmer5"}

Through trial and error I can control the LED strip, but I don’t want to guess at what I am doing. Also I see interaction between the sliders that I don’t understand. Can someone please advise?


@5iver is the man that owns one. He should be able to assist.
Zooz was helpful in getting us a device to test with openHAB.

Yes, my site map was based on a posting from @5iver. This device is a really cool thing. Several years ago I designed a LED controller using an XBee and Arduino. It controls lighting on a my stair rail, but it started acting up. I saw the ZEN31 and thought it might be a good fit to replace my design and simplify my HA.

I know he researched it and actually wrote the database entry.

Thank you for pointing this out. Basically, just use the Channels from endpoint 1. I will make an update to get the other Channels cleaned up to avoid confusion.

Thank you very much for getting back to me. Also thank you for your contribution to this device. It is very much appreciated.

After some testing, I just updated the device in the database to remove the extra Channels. These changes will take about a week to make their way into the binding. Here is how I have defined my Items…

I see this device is still waiting for approval in Chris’ database. I wonder if has been over looked, or maybe folks that do the approval are just busy?


@5iver has been the one working on that & testing. I believe he can approve entries too.

I know he has the product working with openHAB. Zooz and thesmartesthouse.com have been very helpful in getting their devices working with openHAB.

Hmmm… that is strange. I usually publish things myself, but remember leaving this one for @chris to look at before the next export. It is now published. Sorry for the delay!

So we need to wait for the next database export & then the snapshot built after that.

You need to click the request review button - otherwise I just assume you’re still working on it…


Thanks everyone. Looking forward to the snapshot.
