Thank you, found that folder. But the 2 new wall plugs are not listed, in openhab I get a node number, and it says online when it is online, and offline when I pull it out, but unknown device and in the zwave folder both are missing.
I have never heard of a battery operated power plug
I have found that for some of my cheap coolcam devices they actually needed to be factory reset before they would include properly into the network. If you are going to do that , try excluding them first in the hope you do not end up with zombie nodes in your network.
That being said, you’ll appreciate this nugget from a CES announcement earlier today.
Signify is releasing a Philips Hue wall switch module that upgrades existing switches to smart units. The add-on not only keeps lights available regardless of the switch position, but lets you specify what happens when someone toggles that switch.
It’s also battery-powered, so you’ll need to dismantle your switches every five-plus years to keep the module running.
I’m assuming that this was done so that it doesn’t need a neutral wire, and that Signify’s engineers failed to adequately explain it to the people who wrote the press release.
I have not used my power plugs much but I suspect weak radio reception. The plugs I used with the Christmass tree lights worked much better than the Zooz one the previous year. It decided it was overloaded with just the tree leds and an led star. They replaced it with a heavier duty model. The Neocam one worked flawlessly though.
In theory you should be able to modify the XML file generated for this device to set the manufacturer / type and id to match another entry in the database. This isn’t a long term solution, but for testing it should work (for a while - the binding may update this data from the device so it may stop working at any time).
The correct solution is as written by @anon71759204 - to update the database to add the new device.
To use the database you must first register on the site, then email, or open a ticket to have your access updated to allow you to edit the information. Please avoid adding comments to this page or other pages to request access or discuss issues. The comments section is to help provide a record of changes, or device issues and shouldn’t be used as a forum as it is not read routinely.
Sory to dig out such old topic - I’m trying to fix my old devices that were sitting there doing nothing - I think even though they are plugged in - they are not expanding my z-wave network.
I’m on OH 3.4 and I tried to adjust xml “dummy” device with the one that is currently working. I have put the changed XML in /var/lib/openhab/zwave. I deleted thing and added it again.
I see it properly discovered but the values are not updated - so either it’s a different devide or figuring out the XML is way more complicated compared to what I’m trying to do.
Obviously, I’m doing something wrong but I can’t figure out what.
So I went to the Z-Wave Device Database Guide - it states " then email, or open a ticket to have your access updated"
When it comes to ticket path. Where the ticket should be placed? I got lost here a bit as I don’t know the backbones of the DB. I found OpenSmartHouse · GitHub but nothing there states about DB itself.
I sent email using form as I couldn’t find the mail anywhere.
I really would like to do as much as possible myself but it’s my first time and I feel lost a bit.
