I added/updated this device to the database maintained by @chris (thank you!) a few days ago.
To get my device to function, is there an FAQ that I should follow?
Do I need to let @chris know that I added a device?
I can’t seem to find where the latest Snapshots are located. Links posted on this site to Snapshot jar files are mostly broken, why does the location of these jars keep changing?
Will I have to re-pair all my devices?
What is the downside to using the snapshot z-wave binding?
Do I need to switch my OH to snapshot?
How do I know that the new device was integrated into the binding – is there a log?
currently running OpenHAB 2.5.5-1 Release
z-wave binding was installed via PaperUI
Should I do this?
- Uninstall z-wave binding from PaperUI
- Download the Snapshot version of z-wave Binding
- Drop it into the Add-ons folder
- Restart OH
Is it that simple? I’m guessing I’ll need to get the 2.5 branch of the binding…
I know a lot of effort has been taken to document a lot of functionality, but it seems like we can use a “map” of sorts with YOU ARE HERE for adding new devices. Hunting community posts that come up short could be improved upon.
I’ve ordered the Kasa power plug, we’ll see if it’s any easier to acclamate to OH than adding a new device from scratch.
