Hello,

 

I have a Samsung Smarthings hub and I'm trying to pair a Ge Z-wave Fan Conntroller to it, but its comming up as a dimmer. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thank you,

I figured this out.

 

Basically you have to install a custom device type for your fan controller.

 

You can do this by these steps:

 

1. Go to https://graph.api.smartthings.com/

2. Log in to your Samsung Smart Things account

3. Click on "My location"

4. Click on the name of your device

5 Now click on "My Device Handlers"

6. Click "+Create New Device handler"

7. Click "From code"

8. Go to this Github link click here  and copy all lines of the code

9. Go back to the "From Code" page and paste the code there

10. Hit "Create"

11. Click "Publish"

12. Now click on "My Devices" on the top of the page

13. Click on the display name of the fan controller

14. Click "Edit" at the bottom of the page

15. Under "Type" Select "Z-Wave Smart Fan Control"

16. Click "Update"

 

After all that you should have the options for Low, Med, and High.

 

I Hope this helped! Smiley Very Happy

 

Thanks,

Joe

Could have a lot to do with the app, I know there is an ongoing issue with Dryers showing up as Washing Machines still that hasn't quite been corrected yet. Try giving our Smart Home team a call at 800-726-7864.
