NodOn Soft Remote

The NodOn Soft Remote is a battery powered (CR2032) Z-Wave remote with four buttons.
The remote supports various configurations which are detailed in the manual. My main goal is to be able to make automations that run when the different buttons are pressed. To do this, I use "Gateway mode" with configuration parameters:
|1||Buttons 1&3 profile||0 (SCENE)|
|2||Buttons 2&4 profile||0 (SCENE)|
|3||Scene type||1 (SCENE ACTIVATION)|
With these settings, the device sends
zwave.scene_activated events when the buttons are pressed.
Short and double button presses send one scene activation. The long press sends one scene activation when
pressed and another when released again. The scene ids are:
|Button||Short press||Double press||Long press (start)||Long press (release)|
The events can be used in automations as (the remote has been given name remoteswitch01 in the following):
- alias: Remote 1 plus trigger: - platform: event event_type: zwave.scene_activated event_data: entity_id: zwave.remoteswitch01 scene_id: 20 action: - service: script.turn_on entity_id: script.remote_1_plus
