  • Issue of the topic: I cannot configure this Thermostat

I have a Z-Stick Gen5 Zwave controller and a CT101 thermostat. The thermostat is paired with the controller. I see them both in PaperUI - Configuration - Things. Same in HABmin. The controller is detected fine, but the thermostat is not - shows
Z-Wave Node 2 (0098:6501:000C:9.0) ONLINE
Unknown Device

I can find a configuration for CT101 at
but what do I do with it? I exported in OpenHAB2 format. Where do I place the file? I copied it to /etc/openhab2/things/CT101.things, no luck.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
