Aeotec Multisensor Gen5 and general Z-Wave question

Hey there,

I’m very new to OpenHAB and I’m trying to get my Aeotec Multisensor Gen5 to work. I have a Z-Stick S2 as a controller. The network used to work just fine under Home-Assistant.
Here’s what I do:

  • I exclude any nodes from the network with the stick
  • I plug in the stick
  • I use the Z-Wave Binding to bind (?) the Z-Wave-Serial-Controller
  • I look up the USB-Port and put it into the Serial Port Input Box
    Everything works fine until here. Heres the event.log:

weirdly, the sofs and acks stop after 10

and here’s the openhab.log

next:

  • i go into my inbox and press the + symbol
  • i press the z-wave button on my multisensor
  • “unknown device - node 14” shows up, i add it
  • it shows up in my list of things, with the proper name (multisensor)

i get the following in my opehab.log:

and this

and in the event.log file, theres no activity from any zwave devices, not even any sofs or acks from the stick…

And when I try updating the configs of the multisensor in the paperUI, i get a 500 - internal server error

In short, I cannot properly control my Z-Wave devices… Home-Assistant automatically installs the openzwave control panel, but I haven’t been able to get that to work on my own. Is there maybe a good, UP TO DATE tutorial how to install that in openHAB? Or any other way to properly control z-wave?

I’m really thankful for any help I can get. I’m writing my thesis about different open source smart home systems and I’m running out of time haha
