Has anyone used the VISION SECURITY Z-WAVE USB Gen5 controller (VIS_ZU1401-5) on OpenHAB 2.2 ?
You are probably one of only a couple of people running a version that old. Although Z-Wave controllers are basically handled all the same, our developer strongly recommends running a 2.5 series version of the binding.
Many of us are finding OH 2.5 Milestone 4 stable for daily use. If you are not that adventurous, you should upgrade at least to the latest stable,
2.4. If needed you can install the newest Z-Wave binding on that version using a manual installation script.
Please note there were many architectural and build system changes between
Milestone 1 &
Milestone 2 of 2.5. That may be another reason to consider upgrading to
Milestone 4 and to
2.5 when it is released later this year.
Thank you, Bruce
I’ve upgdraded to 2.4 version and ordered the controller.
I will post my tests.
You may want to update your zwave binding to a later version if the stick does not work. Chris recommends a 2.5 version of the binding due to improvements. The binding can be manually updated separate from OpenHAB core.
I’ve upgraded to last stable 2.4 and installed the newest Z-Wave binding (snapshot) and … all works !
- Uninstall stable Z-Wave binding using Paper UI
- Import “org.eclipse.smarthome.io.transport.serial” (from console: feature:install openhab-transport-serial)
- Upload “org.apache.servicemix.bundles.xstream-1.4.7_1.jar” in addons folder
- Upload “org.openhab.binding.zwave-2.5.0-20191108.032738-143.jar” in addons folder
This all reduces to one step in Karaf, which will resolve the dependencies for you…
