I have several Aeotec dimmer modules in my Z-Wave network, each of these nodes is mapped to a counter in Comfort.
If I look at the list of counters in Comfigurator, and tick "Show Status", I can see the expected values change in real time as I turn lights on/off or dim them from the wall switches.
However whenever I try and write a value to the counter, the counter status briefly changes to the requested value before reverting back to the previous state.It's as if the counters are "read only".If I try and set counter 31 to a value of 254, while the lights are switched off, I see the following messages on the UCM I/O monitor
If I view the Z-Wave node in the "Z-Wave mapping" tab of the Z-Wave UCM, and click "Switch Device On", the lights come on.So the ability to communicate via Z-Wave is OK, it seems an issue with the counters?
The Z-Wave device is setup as such
Description: Routing_Slave - Power_Switch_Multilevel
Node Type: BasicListening: Yes
Register Type: Counter
Ch1 Register Number: 31
Ch1 Register Name: Counter031
Comfort II Ultra firmware 7.160
Z-Wave UCM firmware 7.102 Thanks for any help!!

I'd been using the counter approach for some time, based on the instructions in the UCM Zwave manual, but it stopped working. I have updated Comfigurator, and the firmwares on Comfort and the Z-Wave UCM so perhaps that caused it ?
