I recently bought a new leak detector, the Aeotec Water Sensor 7. It lists itself as ZWA018-A02
I included it into my OH Zwave system, it finds the device as Z-Wave Node 038 (0371:0102:0012:2.3) but the device type comes up as unknown.
On the zwave binding page, the link to the devices supported only lists a few Aeotec devices, but no water sensor 7.
On the opensmarthouse page it does list this device and says it is supported by OH-Snapshot approved 12-8-2022.
I am running OH 4.1 so I’d have suspected that whatever was in the snapshot back in 2022 would be in a release already, but I decided to grab the latest snapshot version of the zwave binding and try again. So I uninstalled the normal binding, downloaded the latest snapshot and dropped the .jar into my /usr/share/openhab/addons directory. OH finds the binding and confirms it as version 184.108.40.206312290348
I forced the sensor to wake several times but the thing for this device didn’t update. I decided to exclude/re-include it into my system and the same problem remains. It finds the device no problem, but the device type remains unknown.
The device in the DB is 0371:0002:0012. If while reviewing the parameters your device is the same, you can just add 0102:0012 to the Device Type. Otherwise you will need to add your XML per the Blog.
EDIT: If you want to test the existing configs use this file zwa018_0_0.xml (11.8 KB)
and this method. The folder in this case is mkdir /home/openhabian/jarmodify/OH-INF/thing/aeotec (using the example)
