Help with basic setup of a z-wave wall switch

Hi, I have googled for a loooong time and I just can’t find a basic guide or description on how to set up my newly purchased Z-Wave 8-button 4 channel Wall Switch. I’ve added it to my homey and it shows up as a device. What I want is to control my lights with this switch. The switch looks like this: https://www.elektroimportoren.no/namron-z-wave-4-kanaler-bryter-k8/4512714/Product.html?Event=livesearch

I want to control my lights via Homey and not directly, but when I add the switch to a flow it only gives me options related to battery status. It doesn’t say eg. “when button 1 is pushed”. What am I missing here?

If there isnt a app for it will be included as a generic device

So you’re saying that it might have gotten added as a generic device even though I found an app and added it? In short, should I see actions like “when button is pushed” or must these kind of switches be set up in another way?

Most off these devices control the different buttons with the option off “ set a scene“. In those cases you mostly get the option which button you want to control

Ow i just thought it would be added as generic device…thought there wasnt a app for that brand. admit i didnt look in the appstore.
