Failed to recognize Aeon Labs DSB45 Water Sensor

I’m trying to setup the aforementioned water sensor in OpenHAB 2.0 beta 4. The device is shown as “Unknown Device” in Paper UI. I have the log in discovering this device here http://pastebin.com/sYMCgrwg. It’s checking zwave:aeon_dsb45_00_000 but in the end, it could not resolve it as a thingType. What can I do to diagnose or solve this problem?

Have you woken the device up so that the binding can detect what it is? Currently it hasn’t downloaded the data required to decide the thing type (at least based on the log that’s the case).

I press the wake up button on the device when:

  1. after I add the “unknown device” any way.
    or 2. before I search for new device.

Is there any time I need to wake up the device?

I also tried to press wake up button while I search for new devices in the inbox. But it still shows “Unknown Device”.

Maybe it’s not included properly. What does the log show - do you receive ANY data from the device at all? If not, it might be worth excluding it and re-including it again.

There’s a trick.
I don’t follow the instruction of the sensor to include the sensor into the network. In case anybody interest, the instruction is to unplug the z-wave controller stick, press the button to have it in inclusion mode, then press the button in the sensor.

What I did to make it recognized is to plug the stick, search for things in OpenHAB’s Paper UI. Then press the button on the sensor. At first it still doesn’t recognize the device, but after I add the device anyway, it recognized the device successfully.

Now, it still doesn’t show the correct values of the channels yet.

@chris Can you help again? Right now the device is recognized as “DSB45 Water Sensor”. But the problem is, there seems to be problem in getting information from the device. I tried to change the configuration such as wake up, reports that will be sent, etc. The configuration isn’t changed. The log shows

Do you have any suggestion about what to do to check and how to make it report whether there’s water? Thanks.

I suspect that the device hasn’t completed initialisation - is there an XML file being produced in the userdata/zwave folder for this node?

If you have a debug log of the full initialisation, then please provide it and I’ll take a look.

Hi @chris,
Here is the log when I add the device: http://pastebin.com/mj4D3266 (Please note that the node number is 14 for this device.)

By “XML file”, do you mean a file in userdata/zwave with the name similar to node[number].xml? There is no node14.xml. (or any previous node numbers when I added this device).

From the log, there is an error

When I search for new devices, it only shows me an Unknown Device. But it resolved to the right device name after I added it. Interestingly, there’s no error when I change the configuration such as reports that will be sent. It still doesn’t work, even if I wake up the device and change the configuration.

Below is the log when I changed the configuration. There’s no error.

At the same time, I don’t get update from the device. I created an item for the channel Alarm and show it in the sitemap, the log shows this

15:00:35.986 [DEBUG] [ding.zwave.handler.ZWaveThingHandler] - NODE 14: Command received zwave:device:73b4fcaf:node14:alarm_general --> REFRESH

15:00:36.037 [DEBUG] [ding.zwave.handler.ZWaveThingHandler] - NODE 14: Polling deferred until initialisation complete

It seem like the initialization isn’t complete. What else I need to to to fix this problem?

I’ll take a look at the exception tomorrow - this might explain at least part of the problem as it’s reading the firmware version and this might be preventing it discovering properly.

Hi am getting this error while added water sensor with my openhab2,
Please help me

device discovery could not resolve to thing type 7FFFFFFF:7FFFFFFF:7FFFFFFF:7FFFFFFF::0.0

This means that the device has not been discovered - probably because the device has not been woken up so that the controller can complete the interrogation. Try waking up the device and see if it completes.

i have done all upper things but nothing working
Now got error : I/O Exception Input/Output error in writeArray during sending. existing the thread

Please provide a debug log so we can see what is happening.
