Hi. This is my first post here. I’m new to openHAB but not new to z-wave. I’m exploring a switch from Homeseer. After being initially impressed by openHAB, I’m slowly finding it more and more opaque and confusing.
I have a fresh install of openhabianpi on a RPi 3. I have a house full of z-wave dimmers (Fibaro FGD-212) and various sensors and I’m trying to get these dimmers configured the way I want. After figuring out that I need to update to the 2.3.0 version of the z-wave binding to actually send z-wave parameters, I am now stuck trying to update parameter 6 on one of my dimmers using PaperUI. I should be able to set the value to anything from 0-255. I want to set it to 0, but in the configuration screen it won’t let me set it below 1. 0 is a valid value for this and I was able to set it to this in Homeseer. Is there a way of overriding this or do I need to contact the maintainer of the binding?
Can you try using HABmin to do the Z-Wave device configuration? HABmin is an alternative to Paper UI, and does a better job with Z-Wave configuration. You can install HABmin using Paper UI. It’s under Add-ons -> User Interfaces.
Yeah, I was scanning down the entry and a couple look suspicious. There is the device document pdf at the bottom. It appears to be in line with the db entry through. Notice the default values on the 0-255 ranges is actually 1. Doc error, or DB error? Not sure…
Wow. I’m impressed by how responsive the community has been here! Next question; What do I need to do to update my system with these database changes? Do I need to switch to a development branch or something like that?
