I am having trouble setting up my Scene Switch MT2652 from Devolo. I somehow managed to set it up, so that it turns my Home Control Metering Plug on and off. I have to be honest that I can´t remember how I managed to do so, but I remember it also took a long try and error.
Now my biggest issue is the quick draining of the battery. I already tried to put the Polling Period up to 6h and the Wakeup Node to the Metering Plug, which is right beside the switch. Despite the fact, that this configuration also seems to be faulty from time to time, it still drains the battery very fast.
My question is, if anybody else is having trouble with the MT2652? All the other Devolo Devices are working perfectly with my OpenHab configuration. Maybe I am missing out some details, or the compatibility just is odd?
Note that while this will probably not impact battery life (too much), it will prevent the device working properly. This should be set to the controller (in fact, OH should have done this automatically).
I had a look at my Scene Switch setup and found the wakeup node switched back to the controller anyways - that´s what I mean with having problems configurating it. I enter new information, send it and the next day the new value is back to normal.
I don’t tend to use the log viewer, so can’t comment on that. The logs are stored in the userdata/logs folder, but you will need to enable debug logging to see what’s going on (use the Karaf command log:set debug org.openhab.binding.zwave).
More info on logging is here -:
You can then use my ZWave log viewer to see what is happening - it will be a lot more clear than trying to read the logs directly.
So I might have finally been able to change the Wakeup Interval and so get much better results in my battery draining problem. I got these log entries, when changing the intervall and after that waking up my device.
I will keep an eye on this, if everything still works properly tomorrow. But I hope my problem will be solved!
One more question:
Are the numbers unter the log entries hex-values and can one tell what they mean? I found the Period-Setting in the fifth and sixth number group from the left and some seem to always be the same.
