Channel configuration for z-wave ZMNHCD rollershutter

Hi. I just noticed the channel configuration parameter “Step duration” in habmin for some channels of my ZMNHCD rollershutter (See screenshot).

The help text below states “Sets dim rate speed” and the ellipsis gives a popup saying
Values from 1 to 127 are defined in seconds, while values from 128 to 254 are defined in minutes.
The dropdown to the right lists “Device default” and “Change instantly” as options.

I tried playing around with some numbers, and then activated my rollershutter through the Paper UI and the Avocado Item seen in the screenshot.

However, I could not notice any differences. So, my question is: What does this configuration parameter do and where can I get documentation about it?

What version of openHAB? The latest stable version is 2.5.

The manual attached to our database entry is usually where that information comes from.

There are 2 entries, depending on firmware version but I do not see that configuration parameter listed.

My openhab version is as follows according to /var/lib/openhab2/etc/

openHAB Distribution Version Information
build-no        : Release Build
online-repo     :

Repository        Version
openhab-distro  : 2.5.0
openhab-core    : 2.5.0
openhab1-addons : 1.14.0
openhab2-addons : 2.5.0
karaf           : 4.2.7

The firmware version of my ZMNHCD is 1.1. Notice, that Step duration is not a configuration parameter for the thing, but instead a parameter of the channel, just like invert control or invert percentage.

Here is the device listing There appear to be 2 different manual pdfs at the bottom of the page. That device listing covers up to firmware 4.0. The database entry was last updated 4 months ago so you may want to delete the Thing (do NOT exclude) and re-discover it to get the latest binding settings.

Thank you for your help, but I’m afraid there is still a misunderstanding here. The parameter I am asking about does not belong to the ZMNHCD thing, but seems to be a property of the zwave binding or openhab.

You can acces that by opening Habmin-> Config -> Things, select the ZMNHCD thing, scroll down in the right pane until the second last entry “Channels [x active, y total]”, then there is the channel Blinds Position

It is the same with inverting the control input, that is purely done in the binding. Consequently, there is no documentation about this in the Qubino manual, I think.

You can also look this up in the openHAB-2 Configuration file:
under channels/channel id=“blinds_control”/properties/* , but I don’t know how to figure out what they mean.

I just (hours ago) moved from automatic config to manually configuring things, so I should have the most up to date config, I guess. Also note, that this property has been there also before.

With manually configured Things you cannot change parameters through GUI anymore, you have to do that in your Thing definition.

        Thing   qubino_zmnhcd_00_000    RS1 "Soup"  @   "somewhere"   [
                Type blinds_control : blinds_control [
                    config_invert_control = true,
                    config_invert_percent = true,
                    config_duration = 100

Actually, I was asking about the meaning of that parameter, though.
