Hi,
Is it possible to add to PAPERUI the control parameters configuration of the “Neo Coolcam Flood Sensor”?
I am not familiar with how to correctly verify that the device parameters are set correctly in:
https://www.cd-jackson.com/index.php/zwave/zwave-device-database/zwave-device-list/devicesummary/493

Could someone please verify that the Command class matrix it is correct?


Neo Coolcam Water sensor not reporting sensor or alarm status in OH

Is 2.3 stable able to detect battery settings and keep it updated for the sensors?
I cannot get anything other than open/closed notifications from the contact sensors after successful inclusion


(Chris Jackson) #230

Yes.


(J Wee) #231

Are there any particular things I need to indicate whilst setting up the properties ? I got it online but the values do not show for alarm and battery_level .
I was using Paper UI


(SiHui) #232

You need to link your item to the battery-level channel, not battery_channel.

(J Wee) #233

The battery channel i see is the one automatically provided when the sensor is online?

zwave:device:02b332fd:node6:battery-level

But I still do not see any numbers , its just a dash


(SiHui) #234

The flood sensor is sending the battery values only every couple of hours, did you wait long enough?


(J Wee) #235

Its actually a window/door contact sensor.

Anything in association groups that i need to set ? I just put all 4 groups to the Z wave Controller?


(SiHui) #236

That could give you lots of trouble: if you need to control other devices outside from openHAB, use Group 2-4. If you want to control everything through openHAB, use only Group 1 (set to the controller)

Same game: I have one of those. You can speed up sending the battery level if you use a shorter time for the wakeup configuration: default is 43200 seconds. But then battery life will be way shorter …


(J Wee) #237

Please bear with my noobieness.

If I only have 1 contact sensor and its node 4. Is my Z Wave Stick Node 1?
Everytime I do a inclusion scan , it shows up node 2 and 3, but I ignore it as they look like my Z wave serial controller but could it be something else? Does it matter for this matter?
When you say use Group 2-4, what exactly do you mean?

Could you give an example of your properties and settings for one of your Coolcam contact sensors?


(SiHui) #238

In a standard setup with one controller: yes.

This can happen if you tried to include the same sensor several times. Every new inclusion counts the node number up by one digit.

It is possible to control other zwave devices directly, without openHAB between them.
If you have a zwave siren and want to sound that siren even if openHAB is down or shut off, you put the siren into the appropriate association group of your door sensor. On the other side that can have unpredictable effects if you don’t know exactly what your are doing.
So if you want a clean setup of openHAB and your zwave network, just set the Lifeline group (sometimes that group is called differently) to your controller. Leave all other association groups empty.

Sure:

Contact Neo_DW_1_C <siren> (gRestore) { channel="zwave:device:uzb:node46:sensor_door" }
Number Neo_DW_1_Bat <battery> (gBattery) { channel="zwave:device:uzb:node46:battery-level" }

Thank you so much!

Are the last 2 sentences the items to be put in the items file??
Can you also share your association groups?

update:
I just got these errors after making the changes to the configuration parameters (from 255 to -1), and leaving association groups 2-4 blank

(SiHui) #240

It’s the same, just set it to 255:

Yes. If you have Simple Mode turned off you need to link the channels of your things to items manually.
Don’t forget to put a label format either in your items definition or in your sitemap definition:


Should be [%s] for a contact itemtype.

It won’t help you because it is empty: with the 2.4 version the binding sets the association automatically.

Edit: I’ve edited the post above because there were some strange characters in the item definition (from copy and paste)


(J Wee) #241

Thanks again.
Are you on OH 2.4 snapshot or M5?
I am still on OH 2.3 stable. Is that why I am having more trouble than u did setting the z wave stuff up?


(SiHui) #242

On snapshot #1433 which is basically Milestone M6.

Not necessarily, it depends: Zwave had a major restructuring between 2.3 and 2.4.
But more important is the zwave database: 2.3 is almost 6 month old, so your version won’t have any new devices or any devices changed in the database.
For the battery level: just be patient for one day and don’t restart openHAB, that channel always has worked and so it will on your system.

I also have the 2 gang EU switch

Direction Device > report to OH is not working and only one of the switches works from OH to Switch

You solved it by using the inclusionn by the stick and not Habmin?


(Leo Verkaik) #244

Yep :slight_smile:


(Chris Jackson) #245

This will not make any difference - all the binding does is to put the stick into inclusion mode - the same as using the button.

If the device is not reporting, it is not related to inclusion - this is related to association configuration which is performed by the binding during initialisation. Again, this is not related to how it was included in any way at all.


(Shorty707) #246

thats what I would have expected.

As I only connected Live and Neutral and NO actual load to the outputs (I only want to use the 2 buttons to actually get on off by a rule and control not directly to the switch connected stuff) is it possible that the device is then differently discovered ?
