In order to make the Device Drivers available for your Vesternet Z-Wave devices, simply subscribe to the Vesternet Edge Channel.

Here you can enrol your SmartThings hub to the Edge Channel and select which of the available Device Drivers to install.

Note that the Device Drivers are first release versions so while they might not be fully functional featuring all features and capabilities, they should be usable for their primary functions.

It should also be remembered that the SmartThings Edge platform itself is still under development and changes there may unintentionally break third-party Device Drivers.
