Wave Dome Door Sensor Perpetually Offline

Hi Everybody!

Total noob here. I am trying to simply connect a dome zwave sensor to openhab. I am running the latest version of Open Hab and am using a mac book.

Everything works fine except the device is perpetually offline. It starts to initialize then goes to offline. Here is the log information:

If anyone can help I will be forever grateful.

The port info looks suspicious. What kind of zwave controller are you using?

Zwave controller? Pardon my ignorance, I thought my macbook running openhab was the controller?

I installed the z-wave binding version 2.3.0

Unless your macbook has a zwave radio built into it (HIGHLY unlikely) you will need to add one. You can buy them as a USB dongle. Aeon Labs gen5 zstick is popular.

Thank you so much I will start there. Unrelated, would a raspberry pi have a wave radio built in? Or would I need to hook a dongle u to that too?

NM I googled it doesn’t

If you are in the US, you may be interested in one of these. It has both zwave and zigbee radios. I’ve been using one for over a year and it’s been great. I don’t think they are being manufactured any more, but you can still find them arounf.
