After carefully reading the instructions of Z-Wave binding (https://github.com/openhab/openhab1-addons/wiki/Z-Wave-Binding) I managed to install my Z-Stick Gen5 to my openHab instance which is running on top of Synology DS213j. I had some “fun” with the port issues mentioned in this article but eventually I think it works. At least it appears ONLINE.
After that I tried to pair one of my Fibaro Dimmer 2 switches (I managed to pair them successfully with a VeraPlus, so they work). Z-Stick pairing is a bit strange but I think I made this to work too. According to instructions you are supposed to do a single click on the Z-Stick button. The ring will turn blue and then you can enable the pairing mode on the switch. This didn’t work. What did work - I read that somewhere on some forum - was holding the Z-Stick button down for 2-3 seconds until it starts glowing yellow. Then I enabled pairing mode on the switch and in one second the Z-Stick turned blue which should mean that pairing was successfully.
I don’t know how to proceed after this. I put the Z-Stick back to the Synology and it is online again. I cannot find any trace of the paired switch though. I tried wither PaperUI and Habmin, which I find a bit more intuitive, but I can’t find anything. Is it because I don’t see sth? Is it because pairing failed? Any ideas?
