according the manual the Spirit zwave value controller support enable/disable the local buttons ofer the air (sorry I found only the german manual):
6.7 Kindersicherung Die Kindersicherung des Spirit Z-Wave Plus kann per Funk gesetzt oder entfernt werden.
0x00 Ungeschützt Bedienung uneingeschränkt möglich
0x01 Beschränkt: Bedienung nicht möglich. Gerät muss zunächst entsperrt werden
0x02 Deaktiviert: Bedienung vollständig deaktiviert. Gerät kann nur per Funk gesteuert werden.
How can I use this? I can’t find any item like “child protection” or “lock buttons”.
The times in the history were correct based on the times I received the emails. But even then, it doesn’t show in the log at all - the only one that shows around this time for you is this cooper device and the time is just a few minutes before you sent the message here to say you’d updated it… (database logs 14:54 and your message above saying your added it was at 14:56). The email I got at that time was also for the Cooper device…
I guess it doesn’t matter, but it’s a bit strange as it definitely points to you adding it to the cooper device, not the spirit. I thought it might be some sort of issue with the history logging, but I don’t really think that explains it either.
One of my Spirits has locked itself … I let it deplete the battery to 0% and when I changed it the child lock appeared. I am unable to turn it off by pressing + and - for 3 seconds, as stated in the manual. So I presume it is locked with this mode (0x02) that I cannot change without a channel.
I’m running openhab 2.5.4, I guess its stable. I tried removing and adding the thing and I got one new channel (Basic deprecated), but no protection channel.
I have 7 Spirit valves and I could try removing them all and uninstalling zwave bind, as I didn’t do this since the original install about 1.5 years ago. But I would like to know if this will solve the issue beforehand, or do I have to get some beta binding to get this channel.
Ideally I would like to also upgrade to working Basic channel for setting MANUAL mode (type31 for direct valve control) from this topic, that also doesn’t seem like it’s working yet: Eurotronic Spirit - Unsupported mode type 31
BTW, here is the link to the English manual for the Spirit:
The protection channel problem in my case was actually already solved by removing and adding a thing. As I wrote above, I got new Basic channel, and also “Local Device Protection”, but it was hidden, available only after pressing more button on the right of channels. So that was my bad that I didn’t notice it.
Refreshing things channels works as it should in my configuration.
I’m still on my toes for the manual mode solution though.
It’s “Manual Mode” in the mode popup - you looked there?
I don’t recall the details, but I tried some things and couldn’t get valve mode to work when I’ve updated from 2.4.x to 2.5.x. As I had not much set up, I’ve made a clean install of 2.5.x, that worked.
You can try to remove the XML file in the zwave folder, I believe for some that worked.
Thanks for you hint regarding Device Protection - i lost THAT one, and loosed a lot of time, just because I didn’t notice the “More” button… Shiny UIs have their disadvanteges… And people without glasses.
this saved my day
Had a locked valve too.
I didn’t have the ‘more’ button in the overview of the valve. But then I looked at the side of the new valve and there was the button.
So I deleted the old valve and added it back. Voila, the ‘more’ button appeared and the valve could be unlocked via the control page.
No other actions necessary. Using 2.5.9
