Minoston MS11Z - Device Not Found

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4 2GB
    • OS: Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
    • Java Runtime Environment: openjdk version “1.8.0_265”
    • openHAB version: 2.5.8-1
    • Z-Wave Binding version: 2.5.8

I am trying to install a Minoston MS11Z dimmer switch. The device is discovered without an issue, however it it not recognized in the database. I have verified that the device is located in the database (https://opensmarthouse.org/zwavedatabase/1231 or https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-list/devicesummary/1231). It seems to match on manufacturer, type, and id.

Any advice or tips on getting this thing working would be much appreciated!

That device has been in the database since 2.5.6. Without (unfiltered) debug logs, as mentioned in the binding documentation only your system knows what the issue is.


Ok… The debug log has what looks to be normal handshake and negotiation activity until it gets to this point:

2020-09-07 13:39:22.581 [DEBUG] [ding.zwave.handler.ZWaveThingHandler] - NODE 4: Unable to find thing type (0312:FF00:FF04:2.2)

Is the last bit of that identifier (2.2) referring to the firmware version?

The version in the database is limited to version 4. This might be on purpose, or it might just be that the person entering the data was a bit too keen :slight_smile:

Can you check you manual to see if the configuration parameters etc looks the same as the one in the database. If so, we an change the versions - otherwise it will need a new entry/

Thanks for the reply, Chris. Yes, the parameters, associations, and endpoints agree with what is in my manual.

How do I go about easing up that version restriction?

Thanks. I’ve updated the database and we’ll get that into the binding in the next day or two…
