Leviton Z-Wave VRCZ1 switch

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc20a61c1b8>

I have 1 z-wave device I seem to be unable to include in my network. I’ve tried to exclude it, I’ve reset the device, no luck. Debug traces below. From looking at the web, someone in the Home Assistant forums suggested this particular z-wave device is somehow “different”. No clue, but it doesn’t show up as unknown or anything. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

At time 09:35:15.067 in the log below I see an add node to network that appears to fail. I put this thru the log viewer but didn’t gain much more knowledge and I’m not quite sure how to include that image here.

I do not see that device listed in our database.

Here is the database guide of you wish to add it.
https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-database-guide

Otherwise we need the xml file generated by OH in the userdata/zwave folder and a link to the user guide.

But doesn’t OH need to see the device as a thing, even if it is unknown before it can be added to the device database?

Yes… you’ll need to add the Thing from the Inbox before the device will be interrogated and the xml will be created. Or does it get interrogated in the Inbox?

No - that’s not correct. The interview is not dependant on the device being a thing - the protocol and OH parts of the binding are pretty much separate.

The XML file should be generated even it it’s not a thing.

Well, I’ll check when I’m home and see if there is an XML. But given it doesn’t show after I attempt to include… Do we think adding it to the database will fix not getting an unknown thing when attempting to include it?

If you update to a snapshot binding including the changes, yes.

Sorry, but in userdata/zwave there are only 3 xml files, one for the controller and 2 for 2 other switches. The switch I attempted to add is not there. So, something else is going on… Any additional debug I can capture?

The log you provided shows that the inclusion failed - I’m afraid it’s not possible to tell why, but the controller did not include the device into the network. All I can suggest is to try this again - until the controller includes the device, the binding can’t do anything.

Factory reset the device first. I recall some devices that would not include until I did that first.

Pilot error. I now have an XML file. This switch of course has a slightly different way of putting into inclusion mode than their VRI06 and VRS15 switches. I’ll work on getting info to database. Thank you all for the help! Next time I read the instructions closer.
