Hey, I’m all new to this and I need a little help to start. I got myself the Z-Wave TechniSat Aufrüstpaket Energie which contains devices that are not listed in cd-jacksons DB (getting the “the device is not in the database” error in PaperUI). I’m pretty sure they are all just re-branded from other Companies.
Here’s what I’ve found out so far:
Heizkörperthermostat 2 - the thermostat is probably a re-brand of Eurotronics Spirit
Türkontakt 2 - door contact detector is probably based on Everspring HMS02 - At least Türkontakt 1 looks similar.
Zwischenstecker 3 - on / off wallplug is probably the Zipato ZIP-PAN 16
What’s the best practice here? Yesterday I already added the thermostat based on the Eurotronics Spirit to the database. I’m not sure it will work, because I don’t know if the device type / id stayed the same. How can I figure those details out, when holding a new device in my hand? Anyway, I created a pull request (PR #5916) with the new added device.
In his database guide, cd-jackson asks for being flagged when it comes to problems like this. I hope it’s you @chris
PS: As a newby I could only add 2 links. So I had to remove links on door contact and wallplug and to the PR. Get back to me if you need those.
