Support for Remotec Z-Wave ZXT-120 Controller for Mini-Split A/C on Staples Connect

So I use StaplesConnect for my home automation needs.  Works great, except the company has discontinued it. I'm copying some of the help articles, since at some point, the help pages are going to disappear. The GE 45633 Z-Wave Remote allows you to add and configure devices to the Staples Connect. Link to the GE 54633 Z-Wave Remote Exclude the ZXT-120 from the Staples Connect hub if you've already added it. Add the GE 45633 to the Staples Connect. (See Page 25, Copying Information to this Remote). On the Staples Connect hub, you'll search for a generic Z-Wave device, and it will complain, but it will add it. Use the GE 45633 to add the device to the Staples Connect hub. It will automatically show up on the Staples Connect hub UI without having to interact with it. Page 21 details how to add a thermostat. (Took two tries for me) Configure param 27 to be the code for your AC unit as specified in the ZXT-120 manual. Press the thermostat button
