maybe this is linked to this thread, but I was not able to revive it:
I am using several Fibaro smoke sensors (FGSD-002) around the house as well as Fibaro motion sensors (battery devices). Today it happened the third time that some of the devices do not communicate with OpenHab anymore. I typically realize this when one of the devices starts beeping because of low battery.
The picture is always the same:
- Some devices are still communicating, some not
- The devices are still displayed as online in OpenHab
- I cannot exclude the devices from OpenHab anymore
- When pressing the wake up button on the device, OpenHab does not receive anything
It is not all of them, only some, and I cannot see a pattern. Most of the time is only the smoke sensor devices, but it also happened for some of the motion sensor devices at least once.
To recover I add the device again to OpenHab and edit my items files to the new node id. There is no reset on the device required, therefore I assume it has no controller anymore?
I am not sure what causes this, maybe a reboot of my Openhabian, maybe a system upgrade or maybe only when the power is lost on the ZWave controller (I sometimes perform a backup (image) of my flash disk).
Did someone found a solution meanwhile?
Is there a better procedure to recover the connections instead of re-adding them?
Thanks a lot!
