I have a Comfort II with zman3.My main zwave network is controlled by HomeSeer.
My front door has a wired open/close sensor direct to Comfort. It works fine and I can trigger responses within Comfort.
I want to be able to use the front door opening to trigger responses via zwave in the HomeSeer system.
I set up a virtual input in Comfort using HomeSeer as the primary controller.
I then set up two responses, open and close. The responses are 'VirtualInput VirtualFrontDoor On (and off). I have set these as the on and off response for the input that is real front door
When I open the real Front door the virtual front becomes 'active' in Comfort but when I close the door it remains active!
So is the way I am trying to achieve what I want the best way?
And - what would be the best zone type to set the virtual input to?

A Virtual Input is used for other systems to simulate comfort inputs
Zwave can be mapped a a virtual Input so thata zwave sensor can act like a physical input in Comfort
A Virtual Input does not work the other way around, to send messages to Zwave
You can use Zwave On and off responses to send comands, in Actions select UCM/Zwave, and selexct your Zwave Node id and the command On or off
alternately map a flag to Zwave so that by setting or clearing the flag, it also controls the mapped zwave on and off. Then in Zoine on and off response, set and clear the flag
Thanks for getting back to me.I wasn't trying to use Comfort z-wave to send z-wave actions. My Homeseer will poll all z-wave devices (including Comfort) to determine their state. I can then set actions in Homeseer as the state changes.
When you say, "in Actions select UCM/Zwave, and selexct your Zwave Node id and the command On or off", that is what I was attempting to do in my two responses. One response for On and one for Off.However the Off doesn't seem to work, the Action Code listed for the response is; 154,20,0, 255
