Hi All! I’ve used Vera for several years to control a big number of Eaton RF 9540 master dimmers and Eaton RF 9501 virtual slave dimmers. They’ve worked great with no issues forever. I recently moved to a new house and decided to use Eaton devices again since I was familiar with them. Eaton has a new line of zwave plus dimmers available so I went with the Eaton RF 9640 master dimmer and the RF 9642 virtual accessory dimmer assuming it would all work with Vera. Costly mistake. I can get all the devices included in the zwave network and I can control the Master dimmers through Vera with no issues. However when I try to associate devices, the association groups have all changed from the old models and nothing works properly. It “sorta” works but not consistently. Eaton will not help me with this and says I need to use their controller to associate and Vera can’t figure out the issue.
After weeks of battling with this I’ve decided to replace the devices that are multi location and the virtual accessory switch with some other product. I wanted to see if any of ya’ll could give me recommendations of 3 way/multilocation dimmers and virtual accessory switches that you’ve had good luck with. I looked at Leviton but their accessory switch doesn’t appear to be a virtual switch but is wired similar to the old non zwave switches. I could revert back to the old Eaton switches but I’m a bit burned by anything Eaton…
