But in the devices themselves, it seems to be the same… The one that is missing in the 12 command class version is the BASIC command class which neither report in their NIF that they support… The ZWave alliance site is not a reliable reference.
At the end of the day, I don’t mind renaming the devices - so long as everything is consistent in the end. Another option is to delete the current one and add both (when I delete an entry, it is not really deleted - just marked deleted, so we can get it back).
For most things I usually lean towards deleting and starting fresh to remove any legacy errors. I’m not sure how much the database schema has changed over the years, but given that there are approved devices which have errors I’m guessing you’ve made some improvements since the entry was added.
I received that log message with that type:id and the documentation says VRCZ4-M0. I just reset everything including my Z-Stick Gen5 and attempted to add the device through the openHab interface (rather than using the button on the USB stick). Now I am getting:
Device discovery could not resolve to a thingType! 7FFFFFFF:7FFFFFFF:7FFFFFFF::0.0
@chris or @sihui Not knowing how this will affect anyone else, I’m hesitant to move type:id 0702:0261 from the VRCS4 to the VRCZ4. Clearly though, @RichDiedrich has a VRCZ4 (it has the rocker buttons), and the device reported type:id 0702:0261, which currently is associated with the VRCZ4.
Not sure why this would be the case, since it got the manuf:type:id earlier. Let’s see if we can get the DB sorted out first.
I think what I’ve done in the past in such situations is to make the change, but add some references in the comments section so if/when someone complains, we can try and work out how to properly resolve it. Given we have no reference at the moment as to who added these IDs, we can do much else other than use the information that we currently know (ie VRCZ4=0702:0261).
This is indicative of the binding not having initialised the device - probably the device needs to be woken up if it was reinitialised.
It could be that the device that wasn’t initializing was flaky. I did try another of my VRCZ4-M0 (rocker switch) devices and it is showing up as 001D:0702:0261::0.2. When I push the rocker switch (both left or right), I get the following messages in the log:
What does the Thing show in Paper UI or HABmin? It should be showing up as a VRCS4, which is incorrect. I made the change in the DB so that it will discover as a VRCZ4, but that change is not included in the zwave binding yet.
Can you put the binding into debug mode and then post the debug log from when you push a button?
It may be showing up as Unknown because, even though it’s in the database, it might not have been in the database when the OH release was built. You’re on 2.3, right? That’s pretty dated at this point (May, I think).
Until you’re running a version of the binding that includes this device, you won’t be able to do anything with it.
There’s a way to switch from an OH release version to a snapshot version, but I don’t know how to do that. There’s also a new release process called milestone builds, which are intended to be a good compromise between full releases and snapshots.
Personally, I run all my OH systems (I have three) on snapshot releases.
As for debug mode, in the karaf console, you would type:
