can someone give me a example of adding a zwave thing and device via .things and .items file?
For the begining (I want to switch from homee to openHAB2) I want to include a Aeon Labs RangeExtender 6 (ZW117) to learn how to add things and items manually via textfiles.
Discovery with PaperUI shows me “zwave:device:9be826b1:node4”
The supported things website gives me
- UID “aeon_zw117_00_000”
- channels “switch_dimmer, color_color, color_temperature”
Note the this is only available in the latest binding (ie 2.4 M4 or newer).
From this I added
Thing zwave:aeon_zw117_00_000:controller:node4 "Aeon Repeater" (zwave:serial_zstick:controller) [ nodeid=4 ]
But I get still errors:
'zwave:aeon_zw117_00_000:controller:node4' changed from UNINITIALIZED to UNINITIALIZED (BRIDGE_UNINITIALIZED)
How can I find the bridge parameters?
Have you tried reading the documentation? What are you missing specifically?
Yes I read the documentation but maybe my english knowledge is to bad to understand.
I added this into a file z-wave.things
Bridge zwave:serial_zstick:controller "ZWave Controller" [
port="/dev/ttyAMA0", <== value from PaperUI
//heal_time="<possible values ?>",
//inclusion_mode="<possible values ?",
//controller_wakeupperiod="<usefull values ?>",
security_networkkey="<value from PaperUI ZWAVE controller view>" ]
// Add things here
But PaperUI shows the controller as offline.
Edit: I found /dev/ACM0 using Google search and tried this value. Now the controll is displayed as online.
EDIT2: Parameters soft and hard reset are not used?! I found them here in the forum. How can I reset the controller to start with empty nodes?
Ok, this must be one reason. I have binding 2.3.0.
Does this mean I must switch to a dev branch?
Edit: I updated to “testing (2.4…)” and now I have the thing working. Next I start testing the items.
Edit2: items are working too
