Thanks! I unfortunately used “too much information” for the deviceID, so I didn’t get the “Request approval” button. I instead opened a ticket to have the deviceID resolved :slight_smile:

I did`nt quite understand this, is there any way that you could do this? :sweat_smile:

You did not understand what?
Sihui approved the database entry and gave advice for the future. The person submitting the entry forgot one step of the process.

What do I need to do? I do not have the permissions to approve database entries anyway.

I did not quite understand this :joy:

Yuck! very bad typing. Sorry. Here is what I was trying to say…

You need to update to a snapshot version of the binding if you have not done to already. The easiest way is the installer script.

Zigbee and Z-Wave manual install script - Tutorials & Examples - openHAB Community

After updating the binding delete the Thing from OH (do NOT exclude from the network). Re-discover and add the Thing back to OH to get the new binding settings.

I have not done this before, is it possible that you or anyone else do this?

I cannot download the script and install on your system.

Okay, but why do I need to update the script in the first place? :sweat_smile:
Kinda tought the node would work after it was added to the database :joy:

The database is part of the zwave binding. In order to get those changes you need to install a snapshot version of the binding that contains those changes.

Okay, but where do I get the correct snapshot version from? Is it the one that you linked me in previous post, or do I need to look the node up in the database?

I linked to an install script. Follow its directions and the script gets the snapshot binding and installs it.

Okay, I`ll try then :sweat_smile:

Where do I find the correct Zwave Jar file that I need?

Either the script downloads it for you or you can follow the instructions in the README file to do things manually.

Where in the link that you sent me, is the script that I need to install?

Zigbee and Z-Wave manual install script - Tutorials & Examples - openHAB Community

How do I install it? Do I need some sofware?

The instructions to install are in the readme. The script itself is menu driven and self explanatory.

Which part of the readme file do I need to follow?
