Details: Ubuntu 19.10, Openhab 2.5.1, Zulu 220.127.116.11-CA-linux64, OH running under user “openhab”.
I would like to use HUSBZB-1 with OH. I have added groups dialout and tty to user “openhab”.
ls -l /dev/ttyUSB*
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Jan 31 21:13 /dev/ttyUSB0
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 1 Jan 31 21:13 /dev/ttyUSB1
I can add zwave binding in PaperUI, and I can get to the configuration page where I type “/dev/ttyUSB0” and the status of zwave will change to “online”, but no things are ever found with a zwave scan. Same with zigbee. At one point I was able to add the serial binding but that didn’t help.
I think the problem may be permissions. I was trying to send HUSBZB-1 a command by issuing the command:
What commands can I send? Is this a valid way to test HUSBZB-1? I have a zwave device that has been connected to another network one foot away from HUSBZB-1, and I’m pushing the reset button on that zwave device, but it is never discovered.
I’m using: tail -f /var/log/openhab2/openhab.log -f /var/log/openhab2/events.log
to view the logs, but I only see startup and shutdown events.
I saw some forums talking about using text files to configure, but then no one actually displayed what the config file contained.
Which device? Does pushing the “reset” button hard reset the device and wipe it’s zwave network? Try setting the controller into exclusion mode (Habmin> Things> controller> tools> advanced) and then follow the device manufacturer’s manual to exclude the device (probably that reset button). If you don’t have the manual, you can find it in the zwave binding device database.
Let OH create the Things. For now, Items are IMO marginally better in files.
I have two of these devices (one for production and one for test/backup). Once setup properly, they work great. People usually have more issues setting up Zigbee. Get your zwave sorted first, then we can go after your zigbee.
You can’t. If you configure the device, you will see log entries that you can use for troubleshooting issues. To install Habmin, open Paper UI and go to Addons> User Interfaces> and select Habmin to install it.
The HUSBZB-1 is for use in the US. Are you in the US and is the device you are trying to connect made for use in the US? If not, the device is not compatible with the controller.
OK… have you been able to install Habmin? If so, the zwave controller into exclusion mode and quickly press the button three times to exclude the device. After that, turn on discover for zwave and quickly press the button three times to include the device.
