[SOLVED] Two new Z-Wave devices added to database not showing/working

So @chris just gave me access (thanks) to be able to insert two SimonTech devices and I did.

The items were a dimmer switch and a master blinds controller switch.

I have the latest update for OH 3.3.0 M5 but so far, all my dimmer and master switches still say “Unknown Device” in the “Thing Type”.

I’ve tried to delete and add again but since I have literally near 100 zwave devices, I’m very affraid of having to remove the binding and then this broking all the working ones that I have right now and having to add them one by one again and setting it all up, which would just be a huge pain (also because some are not very accessible).

So my question is, how can I make this work in a safe way so I won’t risk breaking the existing ones?

You will need to use a snapshot binding. They will not be in OH3.3 M5.

Cool, how can I do that?

Uninstall zwave binding from OH.
Go to console (sudo openhab-cli console) your sudo psd, then habopen pswd
Feature:install openhab-transport-serial
Go to website linked above.
Get snapshot.jar
Put jar in addons folder.
Pray (just kidding :wink:) but wait about a minute or so. With 100 nodes it could be a bit longer.

All should be good.

Bob

edit: there are other ways to do this as well, but this generally works for me. Worst case is to restart OH.

Awesome, thank you for the details.

Do I have the risk of losing any of my configurations or things? I sure hope not. :roll_eyes:

No. Only things that should change are the ones you added to the DB.
