Jasco ZW6302 - Device discovery could not resolve to a thingType!

Hi super new here, so apologies if I have missed something obvious…

Raspberry Pi v2.
OpenHab 2.4
ZWave Gateway Aeotec Z-Stick Gen 5
Jasco ZW6302 (GE) Smart Motion Sensor
and a couple of other things that are currently working with no issues.

So here’s my issue, using my Gen 5 and place it into ADD mode. I then press the button on the back of my Smart Sensor and the Gen 5 blinks quickly showing the new Thing has been added.

So far this is good.

I then place my Gen 5 back into my Pi, go into Paper UI, under Things press “+”, and then select Z-Wave bindings… It does its magic and I get a generic “Z-Wave Node” stating Unknown Device…

This is all that I see in the logs…
[WARN ] [wave.discovery.ZWaveDiscoveryService] - NODE 6: Device discovery could not resolve to a thingType! Manufacturer data not known.
[INFO ] [g.discovery.internal.PersistentInbox] - Added new thing ‘zwave:device:f16c2086:node6’ to inbox.

If i’m reading this correctly, this version of the GE Smart Motion Sensor is not in the Things DB?

How do i update or define this Sensor in the Things lookup and what info do I need?


Hi Frank,

You need to do the following :
a. Enable Z wave logging
b. XML file it creates needs to be updated to the https://www.cd-jackson.com/ database.


Search the forum for Z wave database and you will find what you need to do.

Your problem is here:

The device did not send any sufficient data to get recognized by the binding.
First thing to do is waking up the device (check the manual on how to do that).
You may need to do that several times.
