I had the same problem, my light switches and outlets failed to generate any events in OH. Flipping things from any UI worked without issue (and things worked in the 2.x series).
I created everything in the new UI and imported my zwave items in the Dev tools; where I believe I went wrong was by not setting a profile on the link item page. After this all the outlets and light switches worked like before.
What I can’t figure out is that all of my door sensors continued to work the same and didn’t have the issue, which makes me think its something with my hardware.
Outlets - Leviton DZR15
Light switches - GE / Jasco 12722 (couple of other models for dimmers, but mainly those)
I am having a similar issue with Fibaro FGD212 Dimmer 2 modules not updating when pressing the physical switch on the wall. I am running the latest zwave snapshot as suggested. The normal switches work fine, only dimmers seem to be affected.
openhab> bundle:list -s | grep zwave
263 x Active x 80 x 18.104.22.168101180339 x org.openhab.binding.zwave
When an unsolicited “SWITCH_MULTILEVEL_REPORT” is received from pressing the dimmer switch there is no “STATE UPDATE” for the “switch_dimmer1” channel. Other channels like “sensor_power” are being updated as expected.
Just remember that you cannot configure devices if you do this. You will need to use other software in this case (sorry).
No - this has never been a problem. The issue was related to channel linking and it makes no difference if it is done through the UI or files (the binding has no knowledge of how an item is configured).
Given the Fibaro FGD212 dimmer device only has one physical dimmer, would the dimmer device be required to send the EP context? or should the zwave binding use a default of EP-1 if there is no context in the received command?
This was working with my previous OH2.5 installation.
I had a similar problem with OH 3.0.1 - Release Build
I could only turn on the Z-Wave plug from UI, but not off.
The log showed events for on, but dead silent for off.
Upgrading to 3.1.0-SNAPSHOT - Build #2308 solved it.
Unfortunately I don’t have the log any more.
Same problem here. My environment is OpenHab 3.0.1 (docker), installed on intel nuc with aeotec Z-Stick Gen5. With openhab 2.X (docker) works fine. I noticed the problem is related only to fibaro Z-Wave devices. I have three devices (FGS211 Relay Switch 1x3kW) that control lights and after OH upgrade I no longer receive status updates when I switch device manually.
I tried to change some related thing “Configuration Parameters” (ex. Polling Period) with no success. I tried also 3.1.0 milestone and snapshot docker version but situation doesn’t change.
So far I’ve only tested one Z-Wave module. I have several running on a RPi3 with OH2. Now I’d like to see that I can get one working on a RPi4 with OH3, to understand how OH3 works before moving and rebuilding everything. In my old system I fiddled with just about every setting. Now I’d like to avoid that.
My plug is a: TZWP-102 Telldus socket and energy meter (Swedish).
