I am running a RPI3 and OpenHabian 2.3.0. I am attempting to connect and setup 433Mhz Motion detectors by connecting a new RFXtrx433E USB HA controller.

I have read through lots, and lots of threads with others experiencing similar problems with this device but so far none of those solutions have worked for me.

Here is what I have done so far:

To setup a static USB location for the transceiver, I setup a symbolic link for the receiver. I don’t yet have multiple USB devices yet, but plan on adding a ZWave USB device soon.

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/50-usb-serial.rules

Contents of the 50-usb-serial.rules file

SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{product}=="RFXtrx433", SYMLINK+="ttyUSB-9999", GROUP="dialout", MODE="0666"

I confirmed my user running OH was in the dialout group:

openhabian@openhab:/etc/default$ groups
openhabian adm tty dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users input netdev openhab gpio i2c spi

Added the new ttyUSB-9999 directory into the EXTRA JAVA options:

 sudo nano /etc/default/openhab2

Added the new directory to the EXTRA_JAVA_OPTIONS

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyS0:/dev/ttyS2:/dev/ttyACM0:/dev/ttyAMA0:/dev/ttyUSB-9999"

rebooted the RPi3

sudo shutdown -r now

After reboot, I confirmed the Symbolic link was setup

[22:58:54] openhabian@openhab:/etc/default$ ls -la /dev/ttyUSB*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root dialout 188, 1 Jul 28 22:25 /dev/ttyUSB1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root         7 Jul 28 22:24 /dev/ttyUSB-9999 -> ttyUSB1

Ran dmesg to view all connected devices to confirm USB1

I would be extremely grateful for any assistance that can be offered.


Need help: first setup OpenHAB with RFXCom
(Skydiver) #2

Is there ANYONE in the community that help with this request? Once I get a final resolution I will update the initial step by steps that I posted with the resolution included for a candidate of a sticky solution for others.


(Skydiver) #4

I am still looking for assistance with the RFXCOM setup. I have read every single RFXCOM request for help and followed ALL troubleshooting and none of the solutions offered work.

Based on all the requests for help and no real solutions, only steps that sometime work and sometime don’t, I am looking for a definitive reason why it isn’t working and what the fix is.

This is my first “thing” to try to setup on OPENHAB and I am now over a month without being able to get this to work. I can read log files and am NOT a newbie when it come to linux. Not a single person or guide has explained from start to finish how an RFXCOM transceiver needs to function so that I can troubleshoot what is not working. I would greatly like to get the information on how this is supposed to work and what are the blockers from allowing it to function and how to resolve them.


(Martin van Wingerden) #5

Are you sure these devices are / will be recognised by the rfxcom, reading your story I doubt whether it’s an openHAB problem.

Better check the documentation whether these sensors are supported and use the rfxcom application (rfxmngr) to test whether you are able to receive and process these signals using purely the rfxcom.

http://www.rfxcom.com/epages/78165469.sf/nl_NL/?ObjectPath=/Shops/78165469/Categories/Downloads


(Skydiver) #6

The devices I am trying to discover in OH are unencoded devices. I have tested the transceiver on a Windows pc using rfxmgr and these devices can be seen in the rfxmgr portal on a PC. These are only sensors so there is now need to speak to the device from OH.

The log files appear that the issue in in the jd2xx.JD2XX.listDevices portion of the OpenHab system, I just don’t now how to test whether the Transciver is properly configured and if not where to fix it


(Martin van Wingerden) #7

If you configure the binding in DEBUG or TRACE mode you should see every message the binding sees.

Go to the karaf console: https://docs.openhab.org/administration/console.html

And enable debuging for the rfxcom:

log:set DEBUG org.openhab.binding.rfxcom

Tailing the log should give you output now, if the device reports online I’m pretty sure that it initialized correctly.


(Skydiver) #8

I will do this and report back.


(Tom) #9

I have a similar setup and have bought four ‘identical’ 433MHz PIRs.

Although all four provide ‘data’ when my RFXtrx433E is connected to a PC and using RFXmngr, only two provide meaningful data and only these two get seen by openHAB.

I need to revisit the problem and I’ll post here if I find anything useful.

I have about thirty devices in total connected to my RFXtrx433E and when I add a new device, usually manually by connecting the RFXtrx433E (as there is invariably a setting that needs tweaking or for devices that onlyreceive and do not transmit), the RFXtrx433E will not work again once plugged into my RPI unless I plug it in and then unplug it after a few seconds and then plug it in again.

Otherwise it works fine.


(Tom) #10

This is the data I get from the RFXtrx433E RFX Manager window for one of the devices that work:


Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Kangtai, Cotech
Sequence nbr  = 49
ID            = EEB6 decimal:61110
Unit          = 26
Command       = Off
Signal level  = 7  -64dBm

This is what I get for one of the devices that does not work:

Packettype    = Lighting4
subtype       = PT2262

What do you get?


(Skydiver) #11

Did you gather this data from the windows rfxmgr?


(Tom) #12

Yes. It’s a copy and paste from the output window.

Hi I’m using RFXcom as well. Use it to control lights and sensors.
I guess you are trying to find the actuator automatically via PaperUI?

If try then I get the same error message

2018-08-12 20:51:51.339 [ERROR] [rnal.discovery.RFXComBridgeDiscovery] - Error occurred during discovery java.io.IOException: device not found (2)

You can better mannually add the actuator.

2 steps: with RFxmgr for windows get the data from the sensor.
for instance:

11-8-2018 01:48:49:079
Packettype = Lighting2
subtype = AC
Sequence nbr = 4
ID = 1B77D5E decimal:28802396
Unit = 10
Command = Off
Signal level = 7 -64dBm

then add this item manually.
I will post a next message with a screenshot. (as newby I can only upload one picture…)

DONE! hope this works


(Richard) #14

Add manual the actuator:

I was able to determine that the sensors that I purchased (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073WTR8PW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) seem to be ARC. I activated ARC in the Transceiver config and I now at least see data coming in over the bridge.

I have one device turned on. I do not have anything else turned on so I think I am also getting some neighbor data too.

I am trying to identify the the data coming across.
I am pretty sure this is my device:
0903019728D05FC6064D
0903019828D05FC60656
0903019928505FC6064D
0903019B28505FC60656
0903019C28505FC60656

What is the device ID? What is the code for motion/no-motion? These motion sensors came with NO details on the expected decoding data.

I looked on the circuit boards to any type of ID of the device and couldn’t find anything.
Suggestions?


(Martin van Wingerden) #16

Mostly they just send motion signals, I don’t expect them to send no-motion messages.

Did something pop up in your inbox? When using undecoded messages things like device ids do not matter that is why they are called undecoded :slightly_smiling_face:

You need a rule to process their raw messages


(Tom) #17

They look the same as the ones I bought. Have you tried enabling Lighting4 in RFXMngr and seeing if you get any usable data like I did?


(Skydiver) #18

I will try lighting 4. What type of device will they look like isnihg this interface?
Also when I go to manually add them. What type of device?


(Tom) #19

Sorry, it was Lighting5!

See my post just above which shows the data from supposedly identical devices - a good one, and a bad one. Manually set it to those. (But I’m sure my devices were found automatically).


(Skydiver) #20

I have been traveling extensively for work, so I am sorry for the delay in saying thank you very much for your input!

I have checked my RP3 openhab setup today after a few weeks of not looking at it and I have 29 devices in my inbox (I enabled all the device types in the OH RFX Transceiver Thing Config Page). I see a Lighting 4, Lighting5, SECURITY1 and UNDECODED_RF_MESSAGE-UNDECODED devices in the INBOX.

Tom, could you shared some details as to how you were able to identify your motion sensors in OH and how you were able to create channel rules based on the CHANNEL content? I cannot figure out out of the Lighting5 things what channel values = motion

I am still very new to OH and still haven’t gotten to the step of actually doing something with a THING yet. A couple of screen captures would go a long way.

Thank you in advance!


(Tom) #21

Sure.

Here’s the PIR device data for one PIR I got from the RFXMngr program window:

Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Kangtai, Cotech
Sequence nbr  = 49
ID            = EEB6 decimal:61110
Unit          = 26
Command       = Off
Signal level  = 7  -64dBm

Here are the stages to add the device to openHAB. I did it manually:
In PaperUI:

  • Add Thing (Press +)

  • Choose binding: RFXCOM binding

  • Select: Add Manually

  • Select the device ID/Unit from the device data (in this case 61110.26)

  • Select subtype Kangtai, Cotech

  • Select the bridge (your RFXCOM RFXtrx433E)

From the Thing Channels, copy the Contact data to your clip board:

  • Create a new Item in an Items file:
Contact PIR_433_1  "PIR_Upstairs landing"   <contact>   (gPIR,startpersist)     { channel="rfxcom:lighting5:52b6e788:contact", expire="5s,state=OPEN" }

I added an expire after five seconds to avoid multiple readings and to revert the state back to OPEN (It’s closed when movement is detected).

Here’s a simple rule:

rule "Intruder detect"

when 
	Item PIR_433_1 changed to CLOSED	
then	
	logInfo("Intruder","Intruder detected: upstairs landing")
end
