After recently updating to the latest version of openHab, I discovered that some of my Aeon Multisensor 6s were no longer providing data and always showed blank in the paper UI. I had set them all up successfully over one year ago. I tried to reinclude one of them, but this time, it showed up as unknown, and openhab claimed that it was not in the DB, although it had been in the db in the past. I thought that sounded a bit strange.
This is the reference for one of the others that I didn’t remove:
Z-Wave Node 14: ZW100 MultiSensor 6 ONLINE
ZW100 MultiSensor 6
And this is the reference for an identical sensor which I removed and added again:
Z-Wave Node 16 OFFLINE
Is there some reason for removing it from the DB? or did the upgrade also somehow revert me to an older version of the DB?
We still don’t know what version of OH you are currently running, nor what platform it is running on. The answers to those questions make a difference. If you upgraded to a release from the 2.4.0 series, either a SNAPSHOT or a milestone release, you should read the following:
This device has not been fully discovered by the binding. There are a few possible reasons for this -:
The device is not in the database. If the device attributes show that this device has a valid manufacturer ID, device ID and type, then this is likely the case (eg. you see a label like " Z-Wave node 1 (0082:6015:020D::2.0) "). Even if the device appears to be in the database, some manufacturers use multiple sets of references for different regions or versions, and your device references may not be in the database. In either case, the database must be updated and you should raise an issue to get this addressed.
The device initialisation is not complete. Once the device is included into the network, the binding must interrogate it to find out what type of device it is. One part of this process is to get the manufacturer information required to identify the device, and until this is done, the device will remain unknown. For mains powered devices, this will occur quickly, however for battery devices the device must be woken up a number of times to allow the discovery phase to complete. This must be performed with the device close to the controller.
Status: OFFLINE - COMMUNICATION_ERROR Node is not communicating with controller
You should get a banner that will show the version you are running. From my system on an RPi:

Hit '<ctrl-d>' or type 'system:shutdown' or 'logout' to shutdown openHAB.
In the device properties. I doubt that it will be set though, but worth looking. As I said above, the most likely cause is that the device needs to be woken up so it can complete initialisation and be detected.
I pressed the button on it, it flashed green. and I tried again, it comes up the same. not sure where the properties are… I apologies for my speed here… it’s over 1 year since I played with this stuff…
