After updating my system towards OH3 (clean install with RPI4 instead of RPI3) I didn’t get my Zwave configuration working. I am using an Aeotec Z-stick Gen5 as interface, so fist problem was that the controller wasn’t found. I have managed to solve this by this solution: *Sticky?* Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 - Raspberry Pi4 - Hardware - Home Assistant Community
Now the stick is found but OH3 doesn’t discover the nodes that are programmed into the stick when I try to configure it.
I tried my configuration with text files (OH2), the I get the message: [ab.event.ThingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - Thing ‘zwave:fakro_arz_00_000:controller:screen_node_3’ changed from ONLINE: Node initialising: PING to OFFLINE (COMMUNICATION_ERROR): Node is not communicating with controller
What am I doing wrong?
The bridge is a manual setup from the inbox, zwave screen, so that sounds okay. Did you scan for nodes in the inbox after the controller was set? I’m a little confused by your message. The ID of the controller needs to be part of the node IDs, so need to be discovered
In my inbox nothing appears from the Zwave stick/devices. I added the controller manually by adding a thing>Z-wave binding>Z-wave serial controller. The controller then comes online but nothing else happens.
I can check the config of the nodes in the stick by software tool + my previous setup confirmed that this is OK.
This is how I configured it in OH2:
OK thanks, didn’t found the scan button on myself. Unfortunately the result is the same as with the configuration with text files: The node comes online for a short time and then it goes into communication error.
