Using a Z-wave dongle on OS X

Hi! I am a beginner trying to get openHAB to connect to Aeon Lab Z-stick 2E on a Mac mini running OS X 10.10. How do I know if openHAB properly connected to the dongle? The server does not show any error or warning no matter what setting I type in for zwave:port in the configuration file. I think the correct setting is /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART. Is that right? Please help!

If you check the logs (with debug enabled) it should show you the communications between the server and the dongle. If it can’t open the port, then there will be an error saying this, otherwise you should see messages being sent and received.

I guess it depends on the configuration - on my Macbook Pro, it is /dev/tty.usbmodem1421. You should be able to find this by doing a ls /dev/tty* then plugging in the dongle and type the same command and see what has changed.

Thank you Chris. I didn’t notice there is a debug mode!

dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART is what a 2E looks like on my Macbook.
