Z-wave device import - change device room?

I have an existing zwave controller in my home and have added my neeo to the network as a controller. I have a number of zwave devices in my home (mostly light switches in many rooms throughout the house) and am excited to be able to control them via my new neeo.

I'm finding that when I add a new discovered device to be controlled by my remote, there's no option to set which room the device should be assigned to - they all show up automatically in my living room. Without being able to organize my devices, it isn't really all that useful to me.

Is there a way to organize my devices in to different rooms that I haven't been able to find? If not, is this on the feature roadmap?

Thanks!

Kim

    It is possible to assign a room when adding a z-wave device, but it is not possible to assign a room to discovered z-wave devices. This is a known limitation which will be addressed in a future firmware update.

  • Just wanted to say that I also ran into this problem with my Z-Wave devices. All of the discovered devices can only be added to the first room in the list of rooms, which is the Living Room. Looking forward to having this fixed in a (near) future firmware update.

      Z-Wave devices you add manually can be assigned to a room, but discovered cannot be assigned a room. This is a known limitation to be addressed in a future update.

  • Paul Spee is correct, that is a know limitation. Basically this includes two things, the first one being able to assign z-wave devices when being discovered from a primary controller when NEEO is secondary, and the general feature to change devices to another room after adding them. 

    Both are being worked on already, so that is coming very soon.

    • Patrick Same problem. Today the rooms name are useless.

    Glad to hear this is on the road map, just ran into myself!!

  • Same, will we have to reinclude everything when the update comes or will it work right away?

  • Would like to see this update as well.

    However... You can just create\use a different room and make a new recipe there.

    For example I created a new room ' Living Room Lights' and added recipe's for turning the lights on\off, referring to devices in my 'Living Room' room.

    I find this a decent workaround so just in case it also works for others...

  • Is there documentation to adding a Neeo to my hub? In my case I run HomeSeer 3 with a Z-net device.

      Robert Lange I dont know about HS3, but you can include NEEO as a secondary controller by using normal inclusion methods. NEEO will descover your z-wave devices and be a part of your network. It will not include scenes and other automation you have done on you HS3

      Kolbjørn I also have a HomeSeer 3 (i.e. HS3) system using Z-Net as the Z-Wave controller. I have never experimented with secondary controllers, so I am very curious about the suggestion you made. To clarify, do you mean we should try this:

      • Open the HS3 webpage and add the NEEO as a secondary controller to the HS3 software?

      If so, will HS3 download our existing Z-Wave network information into the NEEO? Or will we have to add all the individual Z-Wave devices to the NEEO one by one?

      Moreover, NEEO itself has the ability to add itself as a secondary controller. That's the option I used, but I'm not sure if that is the best way to incorporate NEEO into an existing HomeSeer+Z-Wave network...

      Casey I have no experience using HS. But yeah, that is what I suggest. The z-wave network will communicate with NEEO and all you hardwired devices will show up in NEEO. Battery devices will show up when they wake up, or you can force to wake them up. 

       

      The problem right now now is that all the devices will be added to the first room you created. NEEO is working on a fix for that.

  • Actually are you sure about adding Neeo as a secondary controller? Adding it through the standard inclusion method creates devices with HS3.  I thought it would be added as a standard z-wave device which you could then configure it to instruct as in send z-wave commands to your z-wave network since it would be able to communicate with them as per the z-wave standard mesh protocol. Again, where's some documentation? I find that you need to fly by the seat of your pants with Neeo. Such a shame.

    • Mike Potts It is allready filed by NEEO and it is also worked on. Don't know the current sate and release date, but it will come. Maybe one of the NEEO Members know more / can tell more:
