Does your switch report the new state back to OH? Look in events.log and see if OG1_WZ_Dimmer1 receives an update when you change the dimmer at the switch. If not, there is your problem. Not all ZWave switches/dimmers report when they are physically swithed/dimmed. Usually, the Fibaro ones do though.
no, the dimmer dont report the state in the events.log.
But I used this dimmer with FHEM bevore, and there it worked.
The dimmer2 has 2 switches, one physical relais and one only physical switch only for zwave.
And if I link the second Switch, the zwave switch, to a wall plug nothing happens.
With FHEM the same wasnt any problem.
I reset the dimmer2 again, but the problem is the same.
Okay, I use switch_dimmer for S1 and as dimmer for the room light.
I can dimm the light with S1, get the correct feedback on the sitemap, can controll it with the sitemap and get the feedback in the log. switch_dimmer1 and switch_dimmer2 do nothing.
If I press S2, switch_dimmer on the sitemap switch, but the room light doesn’t react!!!
2018-01-22 17:25:27.108 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 100 to 0
2018-01-22 17:25:30.289 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 0 to 100
2018-01-22 17:25:33.092 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 100 to 0
2018-01-22 17:25:35.415 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 0 to 100
2018-01-22 17:25:37.717 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 100 to 0
2018-01-22 17:25:40.335 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - OG1_WZ_Dimmer changed from 0 to 100
So now both, S1 and S2, send to switch_dimmer, but nothing to dimmer1 or dimmer2.
I set all association groups to “openHAB controller”
If I switch dimmer2 on the sitemap nothing happens.
I I switch dimmer1 on the sitemap, switch_dimmer and the room light react (switch).
I have the same problem with the Fibaro Dimmer 2, I use a normal on/off switch (Parameter 20: Bi-stable input (switch)/ Toggle switch
All dimming done with the app get logged in the event.log, all actions done with the switch do not get logged.
So the app does not show the right state of the dimmer.
This looks like the never ending problems of some versions of the OH2 Z-Wave binding with multi endpoint encapsulation.
So 2 questions are important:
Which version of the Z-Wave binding do you use (snapshot or dev) and which version? (Best to look up in Karaf console with the list command)
How did you include the device to your network (by network wide inclusion triggered with Habmin or by including it with your Z-Wave stick) ? If done with Habmin again the intersting point is which version of the Z-Wave binding DID you use IN THE MOMENT OF INCLUSION (snapshot or dev) and which version?
Unfortunately any different combination of 1 and 2 can lead to non functioning feedback.
I think it would be worth a try. Alhough I do not operate any Fibaro Dimmer 2 anymore myself so just a guess. I switched completely to Qubino Dimmers as they can dim loads from 3W - 200W (whereas Fibaro Dimmers need at least 50W which is not suitable for LED lamps without additional bypasses).
updates, new inclusions, etc. does not help. Now I bought a new dimmer 2 (because I wanted to try it with the newest software in the dimmer 2), and with the new dimmer 2 the feedback works.
Unluckily I cant update the old dimmer2 to the new software, becouse I dont use the original controlcenter.
Now I have the feedback from all channels from dimmer2 in my paper UI.
And here is the next mystic problem:
I see the feedback in paper ui, and I can control my dimmer2 and my wallplug with paper ui.
But in basicui, I dont see the updates and I cant control the dimmer2 or the wallplug.
But I see the update from the motionsensor in both surfaces, paperui and basicui.
And the second problem is:
I connected the item “test2” with the dimmer2 “dimmer2” channel and with the wallplug switch channel.
If I press the dimmer2 S2 button, I can see in paperui how the states from “test2” and “dimmer2” changes.
But the wallplug doesnt change physically.
But if I use paperui to change the state from “test2”, the wallplug change physically his state too (with 2-3 seconds delay).
Why the states changed in boths ways, but the wallplug only react on the online way?
I dont work with rules in this example, I only linked the things and the items with paperui.
If I press the button on the wallplug, the wallplug physically changes the state, but doesnt update paperui.
my raspberry dont load the files from VS studio editor.
I changed the links in paperui, what was a mistake.
I have to work in vs studio only.
I still dont know why the files from studio editor doesnt loads, but we found the main mistake.
|'m having the same issue. Been using openhab for 3+ years now. Until now I never really noticed my fibaro dimmer doesn’t send its state back to OH. I’m moving to a new home and been installing more fibaro units and I came across this issue. (its a new dimmer, so not sure it has the latest FW).
I can’t seem to get it’s state to OH when the light is turned on by the wall switch, although when I switched on the light (with S1 wall switch) it does send the changed power consumption. So this must be a setting somewhere (within the dimmer probably).
Is there a solution for this? Or is this a fw issue of fibaro
In 1 room I like to switch on the light with z-wave dimmer, placed in the wall connected to a push button. I also would like to turn on another light (KNX controlled), but require feedback in openhab to achieve this. I must be doing something wrong no?
