Minoston 2 channel plug

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f43384fd1e8>

In the Paper UI, when I go to add ons, the Zwave binding says 2.4.0. Is that the binding version? I found the electronic manual here https://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/3406

And yes, that looks like my entry.

You need to resolve those errors to get the entry reviewed and eventually added to the binding.
Do you feel too overwhelmed by completing this?

I’ve updated it and fixed a couple of things but I don’t know how to resolve the other issues so if someone could help with that, I would appreciate the help!

I’ll take a look.

EDIT: It can be configured, but I cannot seem to locate the parameters to add them to the database. That will not prevent it from getting added though. I requested review of the entry. I got the association information from the zwave alliance link.

Awesome, thank you very much!!! Will I need to update the database on my OpenHab? If so, how do I do that?

The database is part of the binding. That can be updated with a script manually but we need to wait. Usually the database i exported about once a week. we then need to wait for the snapshot build system to pick up those changes and build the new binding.

Hello, I’m finally getting to this and I’m having problems. I copied the install script to bu.sh, chmod 777, ran it and I’m getting this error. I’m running it on a Raspberry Pi 3. Can someone help?

I know now 2.5 has been released, that script no longer functions.
Version 2.5 Stable of openHAB would have those changes I made months ago.

Sorry but I have no idea what to do other than reformat and install the newest version of Raspbian. Is that what you would recommend?

No need to start all over (reformat).
If your device has been added to the official zwave database, you´ll just need to install the latest Zwave binding, either manual (using 5ivers script) or if you´re running the latest Oh 2.5 Stable, it may have been updated as well.
Exclude the device and include it again. And you should be good to go.

Well that was easy, all I had to do was update Openhab. thank you for the help!

I seem to have the same issue of the device not resolving against the database

Openhab is updated to the latest release 2.5.4 from 2.5.3 does not seem to resolve the issue and the device in known in the database according to:

Any suggestions regarding how to resolve?
Thank you.

The database entry is not complete, so will not be in the binding.

Yes :slight_smile: - fix the errors in the database.

Thanks for the quick repose Chris. Do you need anything from me or do you already have the information needed to solve the problem, not knowing if the below info is helpful.

Ideally, if you can update the database it would really be appreciated. I can update the category as I can see it’s a switch, but I don’t have any oft the other information which is normally in the manual (eg any configuration), and uploading a PDF of the manual (maybe I can find this online).

If you are able to add the information it would really be great - you need to register on the database site and just let me know your username so I can update your access.


I have uploaded the users manual under the product page

My username is: Torben.Madsen

Thank you.

Thanks. I’ve updated your access already so you are able to edit etc. I see there are some parameters, so these will need to be added along with the association groups. If you can also paste in some of the useful text to the overview and include/exclude sections that will be useful as this goes into the OH online documentation.

This is a community maintained database. Welcome.

I have nearly the same issue, but with the device MP21Z (one channel mini smart plug from Minoston - https://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/3973). My current OH version shows “2.5.9 Release build” (version shown after login to ssh openhab@localhost -p 8101) and “2.5.9-1” (with the command: dpkg --list | grep openhab) running on ubuntu 20.04.1.

Referring to this list here https://github.com/openhab/org.openhab.binding.zwave/blob/2.5.x/doc/things.md
there are already database entries for MP20Z and MP22Z, but not for MP21Z. Now I would like to add a new entry to the database by using the MP22Z database entry as a template which is just an outdoor one channel plug and I assume, both will be very similar. But unfortunately all links which are posted in this chat to cd-jackson internet pages (e.g. https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-database-guide) are not longer available so I can’t find the instructions to add/enhance the device database. I don’t know why, but I can’t find other instructions how to change the database locally for testing and I also want to contribute the changes… maybe someone can help me!

The database moved earlier this year. The Database Guide is here.
