I’m having great difficulty trying to get my Razberry to work with the Z-Wave Binding. I have searched and searched the forum and pieced together information from about 5 topics but cannot get it to work. I suspect this is due to me trying a more recent Pi with more recent software.
In an effort to fix this issue for myself and to help others I’ve created a detailed list of what I have done in the hope that we have some up-to-date instructions.
- I just plug the Razberry into the Pi. I don’t have to install the z-way program and software
- The serial port is
/dev/ttyAMA0(this is what is used when used with z-way)
Steps I’ve taken
Add openhab user to required groups
sudo adduser openhab dialout
sudo adduser openhab tty
Open config file
sudo vi /boot/config.txt
Add the following to disable Bluetooth
Before disabling BT as above I also tried adding the following
dtoverlay=pi3-miniuart-btto the file but it caused the field in the z-wave binding options to become a drop-down where I could not enter my serial port plus it did not work.(see below this is all I could set it to)
sudo vi /boot/cmdline.txt
In another post I saw that this info should also be deleted from
/etc/inittabbut on my Pi3 Jessie the directory does not exist
sudo vi /etc/default/openhab2
Un-comment or add
I also tried adding the following but it did not work either
- Addons / Bindings / Install Z-Wave binding
- Inbox/ +/ Z-Wave Binding / Z-Wave Serial Controller /
/dev/ttyAMA0in the Serial Port box and click the blue tick
Anyone have any ideas where I could be going wrong or how to fix?
