I am trying to configure ZWave binding manually through a .things file, because I would like to backup, restore and replicate the configuration.
Quite some work actually, because I have a lot of ZWave devices… but ok, it should be a lot of work the first time and then just simple adds and updates.
However, I can’t seem the figure out the correct way to specify the things inside the zstick controller bridge.
According to https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/zwave/#binding-configuration I need:
- zwave_manufacturer (decimal)
- zwave_deviceid (decimal)
- zwave_devicetype (decimal)
- zwave_version (unspecified… string??)
It links to https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/zwave/doc/things.html but those values cannot be found there. All the way at the bottom (great place to put that link… ) it links to a database page. That link is broken/malformed, but probably should be http://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-database-guide but the values arent’t found within that database either.
The node_id is simple, this clearly shows up in HABmin or any other UI.
The manufacturer is Fibaro for most of my devices. This has ID 010F. but that’s not decimal, so it probably is 271 ??
Then the device_id, if I navigate to the details page of the device, lets say https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-list/devicesummary/133 the URL ends in 133, also when exporting the device to JSON, it shows 133 as the device_id… so I guess thats it then.
And then the devicetype, again nowhere to be found. I know it’s a Dimmer / Wall Switch but can’t seem to find a numeric (decimal) value of this devicetype.
So I’m up to:
Thing zwave:device:controller:node26 "Wall dimmer" (zwave:serial_zstick:controller) [ zwave_nodeid=26, zwave_manufacturer=271, zwave_deviceid=133, zwave_version="4.5" ]
I am missing the devicetype and am uncertain of the correct values of all the other settings… well all but the nodeid… that one I am pretty sure is correct.
The bridge shows online, but unfortunately the zwave devices keep showing up as Unknown Device and status Initializing.
Any help in manually configuring these zwave devices is greatly appreciated!
