Z-Wave binding gives "No endpoint 2!" debug log for Merten wall switch

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f2fafcb0a30>

Hello
I have five schneider/merten “506219 Battery Powered Wall Controller”. They are very finicky to get working but integrates nicely with other buttons on the wall. After updating to 2.5.0-M2 I can’t get them to work anymore.

What I have done so far:

  1. Followed the remove all things, reinstall the binding and then add them again steps
  2. Hacked the org.eclipse.smarthome.core.thing.Thing.json file and manually added four channels that should map to COMMAND_CLASS_BASIC:x where x is 1 to 4.
  3. Cloned the binding repo from github, patched the 506219_0_0.xml thing file, built and loaded into the openhab installation.

What I get (when pressing random button 2):

2019-08-25 15:02:17.579 [DEBUG] [nal.protocol.ZWaveTransactionManager] - NODE 12: Application Command Request (ALIVE:VERSION)
2019-08-25 15:02:17.579 [DEBUG] [ng.zwave.internal.protocol.ZWaveNode] - NODE 12: Decapsulating COMMAND_CLASS_MULTI_CHANNEL
2019-08-25 15:02:17.580 [DEBUG] [ng.zwave.internal.protocol.ZWaveNode] - NODE 12: No endpoint 2! 

I’m reading source at this point. Do anyone know why the channels aren’t registering correctly? If/when the problem gets solved, how can I send my findings upstream so other could use these switches in the future?

This will mean that the binding has not found endpoint 2 during the interrogation phase of the initialisation. I also note that the database only has a single endpoint (ie the root) registered, so things are clearly not well defined here.

Well, if you’re heading off-piste, then it’s going to be more difficult to help you here. I’m not completely sure how you have done this so I’d recommend getting the switch working before manually hacking the configuration.

Thanks for the response. In the beginning I included the switches with z-way. I have since moved from a raspberry pi to a x86 based embedded system and the z-way package don’t want to be installed on that machine. Is there some way of forcing an interview with a specific device through openhab?

The switches did work before the update from 2.2 to 2.5-M2. I have not excluded and reincluded them.

I should clarify that I was able to add the switch thing with my SNAPSHOT version with custom thing definition and got the correct channels. When I press a button on the remote, the same error message pops up though.

Regarding the XML-fine, it’s not just incomplete but straight out wrong when it comes to configuration. I blame Merten for that because they have misleading documentation. When I have something working I will consider updating the the database.

Snippet of my xml change:

<channels>
...
      <channel id="switch_binary1" typeId="switch_binary">
        <label>Switch</label>
        <properties>
          <property name="binding:*:OnOffType">COMMAND_CLASS_BASIC:1</property>
        </properties>
      </channel>
...

openHAB will automatically perform the interrogation if it doesn’t already have all the information it needs. If this fails, you can select the Reinitialise device option in the thing parameters. Or, you can remove the XML file from the {userdata/zwave} folder for the node in question.

Can you please post the XML file that OH has generated for this device so I can see what the device interrogation found.

The XML-file for node 12 (my switch) isn’t there. It wasn’t there previously either. My conclusion is that these remotes never where properly interrogated and before the rewrite of the z-wave binding it did things differently. I will try to reinclude them and if everything else fails, brute force a node 12 XML file and try with that.

The switch is the type that is battery powered and very finicky and it won’t surprise me the least if it have limped along until now.

@chris When I have your attention, how do I go about pushing the thing XML file changes upstream so that other at least wont have that problem in the future?

I would suggest to get a log of the initialisation. Re-including probably won’t make any difference as the interrogation isn’t linked to inclusion at all.

You’d need to make the changes directly in the database using the online editor.

Please don’t filter the log as it removes all the good stuff that I need in order to see what is happening.

The log file is 1 MB in size, and that is 2 minutes of running openhab with debug logging. (I have approx 45 devices in my network). I can see if I can make openhab send zwave logs to a separate file unless you are OK with me sharing it by other means (ex. dropbox).

Trivia: I have 181MB of openhab logs.

Sure - that’s absolutely fine. Thanks.

This is start and a couple of button presses. If there are some thing you want me doing and log. Let me know.

I think in the first instance you need to wake up the device again as the binding is waiting. I recall these devices in the past - they don’t support the WAKEUP command class, but the binding will think they are awake when they receive the NIF - something you press must do this as I see this in the log, and the binding sends a request to the device, and it gets a response.

I would try and work out how to get the NIF sent then press this a lot of times over the period of a minute or two.

Things slow down as the binding moves on to other devices in the meantime, so it requires a repeat of the wakeup.

Thanks alot! I will try that and report back with results. I do have other things to attend to so we see when I can continue.

Just a quick update before I go to bed:
I can with lots of button pushing get the remote to progress a bit further in the initialization. I seem to get stuck at state ENDPOINTS though.

My theory is that the binding is to slow to send out the packages and thus the remote goes to sleep again. The window of transmission is very narrow. This is however theory that might turn out to be incorrect. I’m sifting through the code trying to understand the flow and see if I can proof or disproof my theory.

Can you provide an updated debug log and I’ll take a look?

I will produce the logs this evening after work.

I have produced some logs from startup to the point the binding is trying to determine endpoints. There should be some good nuggets in there hopefully. Note, this is a custom build from latest master branch with sleep timeout changed from 5000ms to 9000ms in ZWaveNode.

I’m sorry for the large and chatty log file, but that’s what happens when you z-wave everything in your house :wink:

The log viewer helps sort things out.

Thanks! That helps.

So, I have some good and some bad news. The good news: I have “solved” the switch not working. The bad news: It involves going off-piste as @chris so aptly did put it.

The problem with the Merten/Scheider Wall Mounted Z-Wave Switches are that they are awake really short time and timing must be right if one is to set parameters or do anything. Because of this, the zwave binding have a really hard time interrogating the device. I have not been able to fully interrogate the device through conventional means. However, when the binding have finished it’s interrogation of a device, it will store that data as a xml file under userdata/zwave (/var/lib/openhab2/zwave in my case) so that it don’t need to interrogate the device again.

I exploit this behavior by crafting my own xml file. Now, the file is incomplete and I don’t have any hope to change the parameters with it. But as I have had these remotes in the setup before and have setted the parameters as I want them, I don’t really care.

I will add the xml file if any brave souls want to follow my footsteps, but be warned! There be dragons! There are also absolutely no guarantees that my solution will hold through releases.

A final piece of advice: Stay away from Merten/Schneider CONNECT.

network_c571576d__node_12.xml (15.1 KB)

Thanks to @chris for all your help! Someday I might have more time to actually try to see if I can contribute with some code to fix this. I will follow up on the device definition though.

If anybody have questions please ask them in this topic and I will answer what I can…
