I am an OpenHAB newbie, and immediately stumbled into a little challenge I could not find a satisfactory answer for. The thing is that I have several Zwave thermostats that are not yet in the database. I have created an entry for them to the best of my ability in the database here: OpenSmartHouse Z-Wave Device Database I understand that this will appear automatically in new releases in a few weeks time (?).
However, it would have been extremely nice if I could test this myself first - for my curiosity, to get the system working now, but also as a quality assurance for my submission. I have extracted the XML from the database, and I have been able to add the XML file appropriately to the org.openhab.binding.zwave-3.4.0.jar as OH-INF/thing/namron/4512757_0_0.xml
As the simpleton I am I tried replacing the existing jar file (/var/lib/openhab/tmp/mvn/org/openhab/addons/bundles/org.openhab.binding.zwave/3.4.0/org.openhab.binding.zwave-3.4.0.jar) and restarting the OpenHAB daemon (on Linux), but alas, my device is still not recognized. I have a suspicion it is not as easy as this, so any pointers to whether there is some way of doing this would be highly appreciated. And sorry if this is already described in the documentation; I could not find it.
