Just saw the new Aeotec sensor with S2 Support. I did not find it in the list of supported devices. Can it be added?
Instructions are here. @chris can help if needed.
@sihui : can you help and add the sensor to the database? I am not registered for database updates … and would rather not want to tinker with it
I like to also test the tilt function of this new sensor as well, so need the corresponding channel defined
Sure, please post the xml and the manual and a product image.
I do not know if this is the correct item & Z-Wave region, but there may be some useful information here.
no. this is not the product I refer to.
this is it: AEOEZWA008 - I will use the European version
We still need
I do not have the device yet. Will arrive in the next few days.
on the zwave alliance site, there is downloadable XML file. Is this file not the one you need?
No, we need a file from an openHAB user who performed the inclusion process.
ok. will provide it when I will have the device
here is the xml file that I think got created when I tried to include the device. Hope this is the info you need:
network_dd419481__node_92.xml (12.1 KB)
strange to me is that the manufacturer ID in this XML file is different to my other AEOTEC devices.
I just checked the openzwave files and apparently that ID is also Aeotec. Perhaps they bought another manufacturer & absorbed them.
That’s fine - this is included in the database for a long time as it’s not new that Aeotec have the two IDs…
I don’t have time to add the config parameters today, so please wait until next week or add them yourself.
perfectly fine for me to wait until you have time to do it. thanks.
just hat a quick look into the link above … its says, that the device does not support security … this is not true, it supports S2. Do the ENDPOINTS than also need to change?
Found a minute … done.
No, it’s just information.
thanks for your quick help!! much appreciated
I just downloaded the most recent zwave jar file, but could not get it to work:
2019-06-30 20:39:04.568 [INFO ] [ing.zwave.handler.ZWaveSerialHandler] - Stopped ZWave serial handler 2019-06-30 20:39:06.718 [WARN ] [org.apache.felix.fileinstall ] - Error while starting bundle: file:/usr/share/openhab2/addons/org.openhab.binding.zwave-2.5.0-SNAPSHOT.jar org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Could not resolve module: org.openhab.binding.zwave  Unresolved requirement: Import-Package: com.thoughtworks.xstream; version="[1.4.0,2.0.0)" at org.eclipse.osgi.container.Module.start(Module.java:444) ~[?:?]
I actually come from the binding dated April 26. Is there anything else I need to do?
@mhilbush do you advise to upgrade from openhabian 2.4. stable to a 2.5. snapshot? (I also have the issue with the USB ports after reboot and need to re-include all my zwave things after a reboot of the system … and this is supposed to be fixed now)
Sorry, but I’m going to give you one of those “it depends” answers.
It really depends on what other bindings you’re running. There’s still fallout from the migration to the new build system. Several bindings are broken in the most recent snapshots (although it’s getting better every day). OTOH, I’m running the latest snapshots on two production systems, both of which are very stable.
If you’re happy with 2.4, and just need the latest zwave binding, updating just the zwave binding probably is the way to go. And, I don’t think we’re too far away from a 2.5 M2 milestone build – maybe a month away. So, from my perspective (and I say this not knowing anything else about your installation) I’d stick with 2.4, update just the zwave binding, then upgrade to 2.5 M2 when it comes out.
