@chris told me to ask here. I have the POPP Outdoorsiren with id 0004:0002 and Firmware-Version 1.1. Sadly it is detectet as the 10year Smoke Detector. Because this one have the same id in the database.
Now i search for people, who have the Smoke Detector. To identify the right Id in OpenHAB. So that we can correct the database.
There’s no nice way to do this I think. All I can currently suggest is to include the device into the network, let it create the XML, and then edit the XML to set it to 0004:0004. This should work so long as the XML doesn’t get deleted (which can happen if there are changes to the binding that impact the format).
The other option (maybe!) is to send the incorrect ones back to Popp and ask them to replace them with ones that are correctly defined, as per their own statement above ;).
i would suggest, that you take contact with Popp, if they can update the firmware for you. I’ve contacted Popp in the past and they say, that this problem is fixed in newer firmware, so this would be the easiest way to solve the problem.
I have 6 smoke detectors with firmware 1.1 and they worked properly for several months. In spring I updated to a newer version of OH2. Yesterday i had to swap one battery of the z-wave module of a smoke detector because it had no power. After swapping the battery the smoke detector was recognised as a new node and also recognised as “5107 Solar Powered Outdoor Siren”. The other smoke detectors are still working properly. The workaround from Chris doesn’t work (edit the node.xml to set it to 0004:0004) in my environment.
Did you find any solution or is there any other workaround?
I don’t think that POPP will replace the z-wave modules.
