I just purchased a Z-wave controller. Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5,
I also purchased a Aeotec Smart Dimmer.
I can’t seem to get the control to communicate with the dimmer.
Here are my steps
I paired the devices
I added the binding in Openhab2 and set the computer port to COM4
I went to Things and the device controller is listed with Online status and looks fine.
I add a item and use Z-wave binding as the source it kinds the dimmer and I add it
I go back to items and I see the device but it has a status of OFFLINE - COMMUNICATION_ERROR
I have researched what might be causing this but I have not found a solution yet.
One interesting note. The controller when plugged into my computer flashes red/yellow/blue. I can’t find anywhere to tell me if this is normal behavior or not.
