- Platform information:
- Hardware: _Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2/1gb/16gb
- OS: openhabian (very current)
- Java Runtime Environment: which java platform is used and what version
- openHAB version: 2.5.1-2
- Issue of the topic: I’m learning how to use this and have settled on zwave sensors for some of the new stuff, and am sticking to known-operable devices and planning out how to populate my network, populating it, then making the interfaces pretty.
Zwave stick: Zooz S2 stick (zst10). I have decided to avoid using unencrypted Zwave for everything for the moment.
I have installed a Stelpro Zwave heater controller (node 5), and it’s working well. Other successful (non zwave) adds are tplink switchable outlets, Chamberlain garage doors, and a haiku fan.
I’m using two HomeSeer HS-FS100+ flex sensors with flood detector cable.
Both flood sensors were setup, and paired successfully according to instruction - nodes 7 and 8. One is operating pure battery, the other powered, for testing. These are the “5 parameter” version (some apparently 4?), supposedly patched properly in 2.5 and I should have the fixes. The openhab device description/configuration has the correct corresponding parameters in the documentation for the device’s cheat sheets.
I can see them in Paper and habpanel. I am expecting to see something more. For example, I believe I should be seeing their temperature sensors. The channels are all there, but always shows blank/N-A-N for the temperature channel. The “switch” seems to do nothing whatsover. Dunking a sensor in water does nothing.
It’s connected, obviously, but the protocol may not be working?
Suggestions? I’m very new, so I need a little hand-holding if you want samples of files or logs. Maybe I should give encryption a try.
I’ve also gotten a Zwave Aeotec Indoor Siren 6, which may have config/connect problems of its own, but I’m going to leave that until I get the flex sensors working, and maybe I’ll be smarter then.
Thanks in advance.
