This entry will show you how to get your Smartthings hub to work with the dual relays we use our lineup of Z-Wave Outdoor Motion Lighting. (Monoprice 11990 & Vision ZL7432)
First let me say that I am not a ST user nor do we have a ST hub, so we have no way to test our products with this controller and these instructions but apparently they do work.
Apparently the Smartthings hub is not equipped to work with these relays that have multi channel command classes built in them. Our entire lineup of Outdoor Z-Wave Motion Sensing Lights went to version 2 a few months back and now uses a multi channel command class to communicate with the controller and for some reason, ST does not know how to handle this without a new handler.
First, let me thank JustInTime over at Github for putting this together.
Here is his post.
Here are the instructions.
Custom Device Type for Monoprice 11990 Dual Relay Module
The code in this repository will interface with the Monoprice 11990 module in a way that allows both switches to report near real-time status back to the SmartThings Hub. SmartThings ships with a "Z-Wave Device MultiChannel" device type that will (sorta) work, but you'll quickly find that switch 2 doesn't update it's status in the SmartThings app. This device type will do just that.
The bulk of the work for this was done by Eric Maycock for the Philio PAN04 module. All I did was remove the parts that didn't work with the Monoprice module and publish it. Special thanks go to him for all of his work.
Install the Custom Device TypeFirst, we need to install the custom device type into your SmartThings account. Don't worry, this won't hurt a bit.
Install the dual relay adapter SmartAppSmartThings doesn't really allow you to interact with the individual switches on a multichannel device very well. So, we'll be creating two "virtual switches". These virtual switches will look like a normal on/off switch to the SmartThings app, but in reality will just be associated to one of the two switches on our relay.
Installing the virtual switches
We now offer new models of our exclusive Z-Wave Plus Outdoor Motion Flood and Wall Lights.
Not only do we now offer colors we now offer an all metal flood and a great looking carriage, decorative and very durable wall light.
Of course all of these motion lights come with a Z-Wave Plus interface using the latest upgraded 500 chipset to connect to your favorite Z-Wave controller. We recommend and use Vera controllers but they will work with almost all Z-Wave controllers.
These lights all have a built in motion sensor which makes them great for driveways, walkway entry's or back decks, they also have a Z-Wave interface so your controller can do things like notify you, turn on other lights or trigger any scene you would like.
If you are looking for an effective outdoor Z-Wave motion sensor or you would like to get create some decorative security around your home, these Z-Wave motion lights have you covered.

In this demonstration we show how LED light bulbs and Z-Wave dimmer switches sometimes do not work together. Then we demonstrate a fix for the problem and a way to make them play together and just work the way they are suppose to!

In this demonstration video we show the differences between the Cree A19 9.5 watt LED bulb and the Philips A19 10.5 watt LED bulb.
Cree <9$ each at Amazon at time of this review.
Phillips <7.30$ each at Amazon (If you buy in bulk you can get them at bulk for less than 3$) At time of this review.
Our winner is the Philips for it's lower price and superior illumination and build.
