Do you need to check every device to make it work? Or is it just for verification that it works?

I know the thermostaat can be tricky, but how about wall switches, dimmers, scene controllers. I have already purchased soms of those and will check the models if required...

We're trying to add "automatic"support for as broad range of devices as possible and although some untested devices work, right now we don't have a manual option fit adding device parameters, so we need to add support for more complex devices. We're working on adding manual device parameter support and hope to have that in place before we ship.

Are the developers aware of the Pepper One Z-wave device database?  It contains a growing list of over 430 Z-wave devices and their parameters.

Apparently they didn't so big thanks for passing it on. It should make our lives a lot easier and it should be quicker for us to add support for various devices this way.
That said, anything with "Manufacturer Proprietary" and "Manufacturer Specific" command classes are still messy to add support for and will require some work from our side, as these command classes could contain anything.

Would it be possible to add a list of not supported devices?  For example, I'm curious if any of the Iris devices are supported, but I suspect they aren't.

Well, technically speaking, if it's not on the list, it's not supported. Admittedly many things may still work, but they haven't been tested.

The Iris Z-Wave devices should work, as they're standard Z-Wave devices, however, their ZigBee devices won't as they're using a proprietary layer of software on their sensors that prevents them to connect to anything except the Iris hub.

Do the motion sensors that we can order with the Almond+ have a light sensor also?  For example, if I want to use it to turn on the lights if there is motion in a dark room.

Sadly no, in fact, this isn't a very common feature in PIR sensors. That said, what you can do can still be done and there's no need for a light sensor to do that, as it would be part of the automation logic so you could set this up during certain hours of the day.

If you are taking requests for sensors to test/support, I'd like to see support for these very small ZigBee sensors by NYCE. They will soon be sold in Lowe's hardware stores throughout the US (supported by Iris platform) & will be supported/sold by SmartThings.

Also, I second others that posted about support for Monoprice z-wave devices since they allow external contact sensors.

Utilitech makes a siren and water sensors (for those that don't get one from Securifi while in stock). Would be nice to have these tested for support:

Ok, thanks, we'll try to get one in.
It's great that your getting a lot of devices to add support.  Can you add to the Wiki a list of these devices you are attempting to make supported?

Maybe with a status note such as "ordered from manufacturer", "in house, waiting to be tested",  "testing in progress" etc.

@Lars, any comment on the above?  I know I've seen comments that you are working on support for other devices such as more thermostats and the ThinkEco Modlet.

I'm afraid I don't know of everything they're working on, but I'll try to put something up once I'm back in the office, as I'm on holiday right now.

I've got a couple of things I'll be bringing back with me that was requested here, the Danfoss radiator thermostat and one other European thermostat which I can't remember the name of right now.

We've added support for a ton of new sensor/device types for the local web UI in the latest internal firmware build, so more stuff is coming shortly.

Do you have plans to test any Kwikset locks?
Yes, our software team has one, I'll check with them when they think we'll have support.
Did they ever get to this?
I have two and can't see anything on my almond+ when trying to pair them.

Thanks

Well, yes and no.

I'm not quite sure what happened, but support will be included in the firmware that adds range extender and access point support which is expected to be released in about two weeks.
