Changes from Zwave 7.062

If a zwave device is mapped to a counter and causes a change in the counter value, Comfort will broadcast the change in counter value to all UCMs. The Zwave UCM acts on the counter change and sends the change back to the mapped Zwave node. This may cause a racing state in certain situations, eg the Zwave node is a dimmer which is dimming slowly. The reflection of the counter value back to the zwaave node causes the dimmer level to switch back to a previous level

Zwave 7.068 prevents the counter broadcast from being sent back to the Zwave node if the counter change orginated from the same node earllier

This may solve some strange problems which cause some nodes to switch on and off


NOTE Comfort firmware 7.070 is required for this function

Zwave Beta 7.072

Zwave 7.072 (Beta) - Changes from 7.068
  1. Zwave Mulitlevel Switch values 0 to 99 when mapped to counters are converted to range 0 to 255 and vice versa when changing counter values, 0 to 255 are converted to range 0 to 99. Zwave value of 255 is not changed, ie it is also 255 in the counter. This allows the slider in the Comfort app to represent the full range of Zwave dimming levels from 0 to 99Please check of this will affect whatever application you have for UCM/Zwave
  2. For the above, note that sending a counter value of 255 to the mapped zwave multilevel switch will set the value to full brightness (level 99) instead of setting the last level before switching off. In order to set the last On level, send the zwave ON command using  the Zwave action code.
  3. Fixed Bug - Priority Polling mode which is enabled by UCM CM control menu command did not work for Flags, it only worked for counters. Priority pollling mode allows UCM/Zwave to poll the Zwave nodes which are programmed in Comfort control menu used in Comfort apps or keypads so that when the Zwave devices is controlled by other zwave devices or by manually pressing the on/off button, the status is almost immediately updated in  the control menu status value
Note
UCM 7.072 is recommended with Zwave 7.072. UCM 7.072 fixes a bug where UCM log out did not stop the Zwave status polling mode
