New Zwave Thing from a manufacturer not in the supported list

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: RPI4
    • openHAB version: 3.3
  • Issue of the topic: Vesternet Z-Wave 2 Channel Switch recognized as unknown device

Hi I bought 2 units of relatively new “Vesternet Z-Wave 2 Channel Switch”

And when I include them to openhab they discovered as an unknown device, without any chanel.
How can I configure it manually as a start?

And how they can be included in the supported library for openhab in the future?


The information about what channels a z-wave devices should have is kept in the z-wave database. Without an entry in that database, there simply isn’t any way for the binding to know what channels (or properties) a devices should present. Until the device is in the database, there’s not much you can do with it in OH.

The database of devices is community maintained and you can learn all about how to contribute the information about your new devices here:
