Zdb5100

What I need is support for the following device : ZDB5100 It’s a Four bottom Dimmer/Switch from Logic Home. I installed the “Logic Home Control” app, but the device zdb5100 is not supported. I would like to contact the group writing the software for the LogicHome devices.? Under the support page “Feature request for Homey” there is a link to a request form but the link seems to be wrong : https://goo.gl/forms/WyLpQodlV9jtghPk1 can anyone help?

@TedTolboom ^^

Super thanks!

@Svenning thanks for asking.

At this moment the Logic Home control / Logic Group app is not being further developed by me.

Through a Danish friend I learned that Logic Group is no longer further investing into Homey as automation platform. Without access to these devices, it is not possible to add support for them; due to the huge amount of different options embedded in the devices firmware.

Please contact Logic Group directly and request for support to further develop this app and add support for these new devices. They know how to contact me.

Just dropped Logic Group an email right now.

Did you any contact them yourself, @Svenning?

Yes i contacted Them back in oktober and they answered:
Hej Svenning
Den Logic Home Control app der er tilgængelig, er ikke udviklet af os.
Det er Ted Tolboom, som har stået for udviklingen (i tæt kontakt med os).
En ønsket udvidelse til denne app, skal aftales direkte med ham.
Med venlig hilsen / Best regards

Translated is means that any new development must be agreed with Ted…

And same reply now:

Hi Kenneth, We are not responsible for the implementation of the Homey driver. We don't have the resources to implement drivers to all Controllers yet. The latest implementation of our ZHC5010 is made by Ted Tolboom. Maybe you can talk to him about implementing Matrix DB in the App to Homey.

@TedTolboom - What’s your view on updating the Homey app? Is it something you could be interested in or isn’t this interesting for you anymore?

@svenning and @KennethJ thanks for reaching out.

The honest answer is that I really like the Logic Group devices from an engineering perspective providing the extensive amount of options, that create almost unlimited options for the end-user.

But that also creates the downside for the app developer implementing and debugging all options, and the corresponding driver logic, to ensure the right end-user experience / expectations.

Based on the comparable but also different ZHC5002, it will still require me a substantial amount of time (at least 40 hours) of work to build and debug the new driver for the ZDB5100. Not accounting for the other Matrix devices.
Considering the private time available, I can’t make a commitment to add support for these devices.
