I’ve been attempting to include my locks with the aeotec zwave stick, and have been unable to do so successfully. Here’s what I’ve done:
Replaced batteries on locks
Hard reset Z-Wave Stick
Put stick into exclusion, enter user code (and 0), and successfully excluded lock (with checkmark)
Put stick into inclusion, enter user code (and 0), and unsuccessfully included lock.
I know that it is unsuccessful as the light blue light on the stick will briefly become solid, and return back to normal. Once this happened, the lock continued to flash orange, until eventually the blue light on the stick turned off, and a red x appeared on the lock.
I’m guessing that you’re using the button on the USB stick to exclude and include. You should start inclusion from openHAB so that your lock is included securely (which requires the network security key in openHAB).
Also, locks can be finicky for inclusion. I had to have my lock within a few feet of my Z-Wave controller for it to include properly. However, that was a few years ago and I suspect that they’ve improved since then.
Alright thank you! It’s working perfectly now. There is however a slight problem, sometimes it will register the same device as two separate nodes, is there a way of fixing that or do I just choose the one with the smallest number??
What do you mean by “sometimes”? As far as I’m aware, it should not be possible for a single Z-Wave device to be included twice and for both instances to be online at the same time.
However, it’s possible that you didn’t fully exclude it from the controller, which left the previous node behind. I assume this is what happened.
If you add both discovered devices as things, I expect that one of them will be OFFLINE. Do not try to exclude it, as that will just remove your working node. You can instead use Z-Wave PC Controller in Simplicity Studio (previously known as Zensys Tools) to remove the dead node. I haven’t done this myself, but others have.
After you get it working, you may be interested in this:
Yep, that was my next course of action! Now that I’ve implemented that, is there a way to add user codes via an input item of sorts? My end goal is to connect it to google home, so even if there is a way of doing that, is there a way of getting an input item on the Google Home app itself?
