Where to request device device support for specific app?

I’m new to this forum, so I apologize if I’m posting this in the wrong place.

I’d like to ask for a new device to the existing Namron app for Homey, but I don’t understand where I should post that request in this forum, or where I can reach the developer(a) of the app.

Thanks in advance!

To be specific, I’d like to get support for the Namron LED-dimmer in the Namron app.
https://www.elektroimportoren.no/led-dimmer-z-wave-200w/1402756/Product.html. The page is in Norwegian.

Welcome to the forum!

Sometimes the developers open a corresponding post here in the forum.
But in the end, almost all of them can be found at github.com.

Thanks, I’ll continue looking there!

I’m not familiar with Namron as a brand. However, what I find very unusual, is that this device is apparently being sold without being listed on the Z-Wave Alliance website.

For what it’s worth, I was able to add my dimmer as a basic Z-wave device and the manufacturer ID is 1080.

In theory, that together with the manual would be enough to make it work, but I’m not in the habit of releasing software I’m not even able to test once :slight_smile:

I read the issue on GitHub regarding the adding of this dimmer, but apparently the app owner doesn’t have a Homey device. Somewhat odd and unpractical to start an app in such a case, if you ask me, but hey…

I’ve been thinking if I can find an excuse to get this dimmer, but I haven’t been able to find a one yet :stuck_out_tongue:
It seems that they aren’t easily available in the Netherlands either, so it’s all a bit too much of a hassle for me personally.

I’ll have a go at adding it myself, I’m new to Homey app development, but getting up and running was very easy. I should not promise that I’ll be able to contribute, so I’ve volunteered to test at least.

Hi guys!

I am also new to the forum, and could not find any specific topic for the Namron app. That is why I will try my luck here.

While you are at it with including the Namron rotary dimmer, could you also add the Z-wave switch?:

This should be very similar as the ROBB smarrt version (the Namron z-wave built-in dimmer works with ROBBsmarrt app):

I have added the switch as basic Z-wave device, and the manufacturer ID is 816.
If there is any more information I should provide, I will be more than happy to try to help you out.

Thank you so much!

Head over to the Homey Namron app on Github and file a request there :smile:

Make sure you provide not only manufacturer ID, but more importantly the product ID. A simple screendump should suffice wrt. information needed.

I actually asked support about this and they said the Namron rotary dimmer is a brand new and that they expect it to be listed on the Z-wave alliance page in a couple of weeks.
