I’m brand new to the openHAB community, and I’m new to Z-Wave as well. I have openHAB 3.3.0 running on Windows 10 and Zulu 11 runtime environment.
I just received this Minoston switch, but it looks like it isn’t in the database yet. I created an account over at OpenSmartHouse and am waiting for the account approval process so I can get the XML file and submit it for consideration.
Decided to create this post so that (a) verify I’m not insane and just missing something or (b) creating this so that those who follow me with this device will be able to find a post about it, and know that it’s in process.
Looking forward to being a member of this community.
Welcome, Jeff! Thanks for being proactive about adding that device. I’ve never heard of Minoston, and it looks like they aren’t in the database. Based on this current discussion, there might need to be some work to add them.
Advice appreciated (@rpwong or @chris especially). I tried to create an XML file by using an export of the XML for the MS13Z. There are a couple things I’m not sure what to do with. The Channel definitions section is one, and some of the device properties is another (I made some stuff up for manufacturerRef and dbReference). A lot of the data for the XML is found here: https://minoston.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/MR40Z-说明书.pdf
My first swag at the XML is attached.
Thanks for the advice! Hope to get this finalized and submitted soon. MR40Z.xml (11.7 KB)
As a battery device this may be true or not. Do you have 5 lines on the UI page? If not wake the device untill you do. At that point somewhere on your system will be a OH generated XML to use as @anon71759204 directs.
Also there is an MR40Z in the DB (0924:D001), so you might just have a different TYPE:ID. Those numbers are how the binding either ID’s the device (or not). You can’t just make them up. (The numbers in your XML match another device, so that is a problem as well.)
OK. I managed to get it excluded and re-included, but here’s what it shows when I add a Thing. I have woken it up several times, FWIW. If the MR40Z is in the database, is there something I need to do on the openHAB side?
Also try to put logs in the </> they are easier to read. I can see some issues, but they are unrelated to Node6.
What is the problem is that the device was added in September and OH3.3 is from June. Your numbers match so it will be recognized (nothing to add to the DB). Look at the bottom of this post for two ways to update your binding and device. Choose the one you feel comfortable with.
