i have a device that is not in the database. It is a Devolo Motion Detector. I would like to add it to the database but have not found instruction how to do it. Also the search did not help me. Can you point me in the right direction?
From the log:
log/zwave-2015-42.log.zip:2015-10-14 21:05:16.702 [DEBUG] [.z.i.config.ZWaveConfiguration:274 ]- NODE 9: No database entry: devolo [ID:d,Type:2]
The fact that HABmin might show the device is green is totally unrelated to the database. The database contains additional information about the device, but it’s not required for openHAB1 use. The ‘green light’ means that the device is operating and this isn’t linked to the database…
For reference in case anyone else ends up here, there’s now an online database editor here.
It would be great if people could help with adding database entries for new devices they have (and many people are). It doesn’t take too much time (probably 15 minutes) so if everyone chips in with their devices it will make things easier for everyone. I don’t have the device so can’t for example upload the xml file that you probably already have (since you have the green light in Habmin, it should have generated the file).
I have understood that your Website is the preferred way to submit device xml files to you, is it?
I would like to upload some files for Devolo thermostat, it is the rebranded Danfoss LC-13 with new firmware from Devolo. But there is no green button in the right corner, like the discription from your site?
Can you tell me, how i can enable my account to upload a device xml?
The database editor effectively allows you to generate the xml files - these files still need to be merged into OH on Github, and this process is the Pull Request (PR). It requires you to have the development environment configured… If you’re not happy to do this I’m happy to do it - just give me the references for the devices…
In the longer term, the plan is to automate this a little more, but until the online database is ‘complete’ I don’t want to risk breaking OH1 but this is what we’re doing on OH2 now…
Yes - I’m trying to avoid using _ to make the naming consistent… At the moment I’ve not bothered to correct all these errors as these devices are also missing information. Once this information is updated in the device I’ll fix the other errors as well (it takes no time to do it this way).
