What is your confidence in this new zwave driver serving as a secondary controller to smartthings? Since moving in December I’ve been using smartthings for the ease of setup but more advanced programming is harder to do.

I'm doing this now ST primary, VRC0P secondary.  All my actions are handled by CQC, not ST, no logic on ST. Happy with ST and ability to add community device drivers.

do you need to use the leviton software for this?

Dude, you were on the SmartThings<->VRC0P webinar with me and Ben.

Unless you're talking about the z-stick, in which case ignore me.  Smile

I meant for the actual replication. We didn't cover that. Or did we? That was 3 lifetimes ago.
You do it through the web interface, see the thread How To Configure SmartThings as Primary ZWave Controller...
It's been a while since I used ST but does that offer you control over the scenes in multiple button controllers? I have a 4 button one but I can only access the local load control on button 1.
And really I'd want to have CQC fire off on those other buttons via the vrcop. That's why I bought it TBH, clearly didn't research enough first.
Since I'm primarily UPB and Hue for lighting control I cannot answer your question on scenes. I know you can create phantom buttons that can trigger multiple events on ST but that's not the same as a scene in Z-Wave.  Just used some Google Foo dust and got this on SmartThings forum, looks very promising!


as an aside I am embarking on a journey of interfacing ST to CQC via MQTT so who knows what that will open up.

Boy are we off topic :-O

Update, okay, maybe not, read deeper, maybe still lacking, there is a good write-up post in the thread linked above explaining the ins and outs...
Continuing the off-topic but to close the loop: Just checked, no SmartThings cannot control 4 button *zone* controllers. It can control 4 button scene controllers. I, unfortunately, bought zone controllers. I needed the 1 local load plus the 3 zones, but except for the POS Leviton software it's useless.
My zone controller worked with the scene controller device handler but the power on side of the zone controller switch toggled whatever was assigned to it.
Were you able to trap and make use of the non-load buttons?
Align middle isn't working. Trying to align a command button and a field checkbox, first the field checkbox disappears, then when I try and save I get "could not create the rectangular region (numbers) object. The parameter is incorrect.

I had just resized the field checkbox, it's smaller than the image inside it (intentionally).

How were trying to align them? Where they vertically laid out one under the other, or maybe overlapping each other in some way?
