I just installed the lock mentioned in the subject. I’ve included it into my Z-wave network, and I can see some of the expected settings on the Thing Configuration page. However, the “Thing Type” shows as “Unknown Device” and there are no channels.
I just now checked the z-wave binding device list, and it seems this device isn’t in the database yet. How do I go about getting that added? I tried clicking the link at the bottom of the database list page, but it gives an error; I can’t find the instructions anywhere else.
Thanks! I was working off of the list linked from the z-wave binding page in the add-ons documentation. Strange that that page doesn’t link to the one you posted.
I’ll take a look at those instructions for how to add a device to the database this evening. Hopefully getting this lock added will be pretty straightforward. Fortunately the Z-wave functionality of the lock is just a nice addition to its features, not a “must have” for it to work.
That makes sense. Looks like @apella12 was right. So in that case, I just have to wait for @chris to add the manufacturer to the database, right? Or is there something I can do to add the manufacturer?
Sweet, thanks! I’ve added the device and done my best to make sure the information, endpoints, etc are good to go. That being said, this is the first time I’ve done this, and I have no way of testing that it’s all working until this new device info is available in the live binding. I’m assuming that happens after the next openHAB update?
I added the Lifeline Association. And yeah, very little to configure, or even to do at all, with this device, in regard to Z-wave. All it supports, as far as I can tell, is Lock, Unlock, set the Time until auto-lock after the door closes, and the ability to add/edit user codes.
Interestingly, the latter two (auto-lock time and user codes) already appear on the configuration page in openHAB, even without the device added to the database.
This lock also has bluetooth, and that’s how you connect to it to set the bulk of the configuration options.
Yes, the lock has been added to the database and works just fine with openHAB now. I did just have to exclude and re-include it today, because it stopped communicating with the z-wave network. But I’ve been messing with my network and it might be something I did that caused that.
I also bought the wifi bridge, so I have a backup means of communicating with the lock remotely, just in case.
