FGK-101 showing no status...again

Dear all,

I have read hopefully everything here in the forum but I still wasn´t able to get a status from the door contact. What I am trying to do is to not allow the shutters to close when the door is open. But I guess once I get a status of the door the rest is easy. I am trying right now to move the shutter a little but once the contact changed it status.

My shutters and everything is running great.


Rollershutter Shutter_Wohnzimmer_1 “Rollo Wohnzimmer [%d %%]” (gShutte) {channel=“zwave:device:4a46ce89:node4:blinds_control”, autoupdate=“true”}

Contact Door_Wohnzimmer “Fenster Wohnzimmer [%s]” {channel=“zwave:device:4a46ce89:node8:sensor_door”}


rule "Kontakt test"
Item Door_Wohnzimmer changed
sendCommand(Shutter_Wohnzimmer_1, 5)

sitemap demo label=“Arendelle” {
Frame label=“Datum” {
Text item=TimeSunrise
Text item=TimeSunset
Text item=Uhrzeit
Frame label=“Wohnzimmer” {
Switch item=Shutter_Kueche_1
Switch item=Shutter_Kueche_2
Switch item=Shutter_Wohnzimmer_1
Contact item=Door_Wohnzimmer

I found out that the door contact has the firmware version 3.2. In the HABMIN it shows as great and connected. I´ve updated the newest release of openhab on my Rasberry 3.

I hope and guess I am missing a stupid thing but since days I cannot find a solution. Hope somebody can give me a hint.

Thanks for you help!!!

I have the exact same setup and it is working fine. What does your event.log tell you? You should see something like:

2017-06-04 18:07:57.262 [ItemAddedEvent            ] - Item 'FibDWS1_C_IN1' has been added.
2017-06-04 18:10:24.429 [ItemChannelLinkAddedEvent ] - Link 'FibDWS1_C_IN1-zwave:device:158b44ebf65:node27:sensor_door' has been added.
2017-06-04 18:11:14.465 [ItemStateChangedEvent     ] - FibDWS1_C_IN1 changed from NULL to CLOSED

after a restart of openHAB.
This is one of my first zwave sensors and it has been working with all stable and snapshot zwave binding releases.

Dear sihui,

thank you for your answer! I have removed the door contact and included it back

Somehow I cannot get the StateChangedEvent you have.

I understand it correctly, that I just remove or add the magnet to the door sensor? Not doing something wrong here?

What concerns me a bit is that message: check if your controller is really online:

Edit: if your controller is online, make sure you have the lifeline group set to the controller:

If both conditions are met and it is still not working switch zwave to debug mode and post the output (or feed it through the zwave log viewer: http://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/openhab/zwave-log-viewer)


Hi sihui,

basically this looks fine:


Unfortunetely I dont know or was not able to start the debug mode,


Is a little bit strange.

Yes, it does.

You need to login into karaf and perform the commands:

Because that device shows all green the only thing I can imagine is that you did not correctly configure your channels. Double check if everything is correct:

It looks as if you are using the (meanwhile) old release version from January. My FGK-101 did not work with this old version but only with the more recent snapshot versions. So maybe you consider to switch to the Snapshot, for me it helped.

Dear vossivossi and sihui,

thank you for your constant help!
It seems that finally the solution was really the update to the recent snapshot version.
The first tests worked immediately. Thanks again!
