I need to extend my z-wave network as 4 hops is not enough. I have read elsewhere that it is possible to use two controllers but I’m having great difficulty.
- Primary: Razberry with z-way
- Secondary: Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5
Using the Razberry alone works perfectly using the z-way binding. I would like everything under one system for example I don’t want to use both the z-way and z-wave bindings together.
My main issue seems to be that the inclusion/interview process does not fully complete.
I’ve searched this forum and cannot find a solution and I’ve spend countless hours trying to figure it out. I’m hoping that someone can help here so there is a guide on the forum that will help me and others.
Install Razberry and z-way software on my Pi3 using:
wget -q -O - http://razberry.z-wave.me/install | sudo bash
Install the z-way binding in OpenHAB
Test it is working by adding a device, item and sitemap
Plug Aeotec Z-Stick into a PC, download Zenys Tools, install and set stick into learning mode
Log into z-way, go to expert mode and click include device
Everything apart from CommandClass: Version interviews correctly. I cannot force it either.
I read the following here but no solution was given
The interview of the Version Command Class is usually the biggest hurdle because its interviewed first and the interview itself involved a lot of questions.
If anyone has any ideas on how to fix the issue or simply has another solution on how I may extend my z-wave network that would be brilliant.
Thanks very much
