boolean ZW_RequestStatus (integer $InstanceID)
|InstanceID||ID of the device|
|If the command succeeds, it returns TRUE, otherwise FALSE.|
Queries the status from the device with the ID InstanceID. Only power-operated devices can be queried directly by command, because battery-operated devices do not permanently listen to the queries.
This function loads the radio traffic considerably. It should be used only to upgrade critical equipment for the IP-Symcon start. A renewed queries at runtime is not required, because Z-Wave sends normally all status changes directly to IP Symcon. Older devices which refuse to do so, should be replaced with newer equipment.
