I am trying to add a Aeotec Energy Meter Uk version to my Z Wave network in OpenHab but once discovered the device is showing as online but underneath in Things it states ‘Unknown Device’. I have tried pressing the pairing button again on the device; removed it from OpenHab and re-added it but it is still showing as an Unknown Device. I am running OpenHab 3.2.0.
ok cheers. but how close does the device need to be to the Z Wave controller. Its around 6 meters away. Annoyingly its powered and wired into a switch off the consumer box so you can’t move it closer and the only option is to physically move the Pi closer. Other Z wave devices which battery powered are at the same range if not longer and they paired o.k.
Thanks for your replies and suggestions. Yes I found a very long extension cable and managed to get the Pi virtually next to the Energy meter device, deleted it and re-added it and its automatically found it this time. So distance was definitely the problem.
ok I assumed it was all sorted and good to go!! but when I check the channels and try to adda new one im not able to get any data from the device as it stating NULL. Has anyone managed to get this Aeotec Energy Meter up and running with OpenHab? I assumed I would start gettting data back from it but so far its not going to plan!
Parameters 111-113 set the frequency of the reports in 101-103. Also parameter 3 can suppress all reports if the thresholds in 4-11 are not met.
Also since there was a communication problem on initialization, possibly with the “heal” (assuming you did that) a more stable route was found or a route was just found in the normal business of zwave trying to get a message through.
