I’ve been learning about openHAB over the course of at least a month now. I started on my PC and was able to bind all the zwave devices. I’ve since moved over to a dedicated beaglebone black I had. In the meantime one of my main zwave switches has gone from flaky to mostly dead so I ran out to get a replacement GE dimmer. I’m now getting “failed to go into learn mode to pair the new device” on the vera lite so this has kind of stopped me in my tracks.
Question right now is should I just reset the whole thing and start over? What settings are ideal, simplistic, and robust to use it as a basic zwave bridge? I’m on UI5, should I switch to UI7? Stick with zwave 3.20? Should I scap it and get a aeon stick (I don’t have any locks)?
It’s probably been a few years since I did most of the config and wouldn’t have dared consider the ‘nuclear’ option given how much time and complexity I’ve got into it, but I had to finagle a lot of manual things around the gui. OpenHAB is the bare bone text based script solution I dreamed of at the time. I’m daunted by the idea of transitioning, so just starting over almost seems easier. I’ve got a lot to offload, dsc alarm, blue iris cams, etc. I’m incorporating lots of other things as well like HA bridge for Echo, ordered a new harmony elite remote, and thinking about hue soon.
