The NodOn Soft Remote is a fun 4-button remote with splashproof cover, funky colours and a magnetic base so it can be stuck to things.

WARNING: This comes with various different radio protocols (e.g. Z-Wave, EnOcean). Make sure you're getting the right one!

Using with Home Assistant

If configured in Scene Mode, which is the default mode once included in a Z-Wave network, you must set config parameter 3 (Scene Mode) to “Scene Activiation”. The default is “Central Scene” and this mode will not trigger the

zwave.scene_activated

events in Home Assistant.

The scenes will be actived as follows:

Press Type Scene
Quick Press X0
Double Press X3
Long Press X2
Released (from Long Press) X1

The X in the table above should be replaced with the number of the button:

 +----------+    +----------+
 |  2    4  |    |  +    -  |
 |          |    |          |
 |  1    3  |    |  ●    ○  |
 +----------+    +----------+

This means a single press of the + button will activate scene 20. A long press of the ○ button will activate scene 32, followed by scene 31 when the button is released.

Example Configuration

The following is example configuration from irl to control the lounge television and Kodi using a Wasabi coloured remote (the colour is not really important).
