Steinel Smart Home App (v1.0.3)

I have the XLED home 2 floodlight. I want to switch the motion detection (and thus the whole unit) on/off with a flow. So at a certain time in the evening the whole unit should start to work (switching the light on only when motion is detected) and stop working at a certain time in the morning.
I posted an image of the app, which shows double functions, which are unclear…

Can anyone help?

First of all, thank you for creating this app!

Yesterday I have installed a IS 140-2 Z-Wave. It is included in my network and I am receiving values from the light sensor. I can also see when the device is switched on/off, but I am not getting any information from the motion sensor. In the Homey app it shows the lux values, but it does not give me any value on the motion detection.

I have already tried to add Homey to the Group 3 association group, but then I get an error saying MULTI_CHANNEL_ASSOCIATION_REMOVE is not a function.

Does anyone know how to make the motion sensor work?

Btw, I am also seeing the duplicate actions and events in the Homey app, same as @Homey888

I have not tried it, but what you can probably do is this:

  • Disable local control by setting the device to slave mode. The device should then not switch the light by itself. (see documentation here: https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-list/devicesummary/688)
  • Manage switching the light using Homey presence detection (switch on if there is activity, switch off after x minutes)
  • Create a flow to disable the presence detection flows triggered on time
  • Create a flow to enable the presence detection flows triggered on time

Alternatively you can also create flows that directly switch the light without motion detection and then include the time in an if-condition.


I have 4 RS LED D2 Z-Wave, I have set the slave mode. But very often it happens to me that the motion detector freezes, i.e. it still reports motion although there is no motion at all? Then I have to disconnect the lamp from the power supply and it works again.

Does anyone have similar problems?



there are some new products like L 600 CAM, is there any plan to include and update the app?

Would be nice to also have the STEINEL MotionSwitch LED Z-Wave supported by the app.


That would be really nice!

Hello Karl, I see this issue also on my Steinel IS 140-2. In the homey control i see that a Motion alarm is there and it is never cleared anymore. Even after switching off it give the motion alarm. Do you have find a solution for this ?

unfortunately i haven’t found a solution yet, i’m surprised that not several and especially the developer of this app (@ TedTolboom) for homey doesn’t write anything about this issue.

i am in contact with steinel, they didn’t know a solution.

do others have the same problem?

greetings philipp
