Greetings! Please let me introduce myself - My username is ABP and I’ve been reading up on OpenHAB for the past year (off and on) and finally have made the leap to really get going with the OH setup/ecosystem. I just started and got Philips Hue bulbs set up with zero issues last week (I can turn them on, dim them, etc all through OpenHab’s ‘control’ panel/webpage. This week I’ve added the Z-Wave Stick (Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 Z-Wave Hub Z-Wave Plus USB) and a Zooz ZEN24 Light switch to Openhab successfully. Both show up as “online” (green) in Paper UI>Configuration>Things.
However, the Zooz Zen24 Light switch shows up as an “unknown” device in paper UI>Configuration>Things (even though it’s showing me all is good with a green ‘online’) with the following description: (also, OpenHab/Z-Wave named it “Z-Wave Node 005”)
> This device has not been fully discovered by the binding. There are a few possible reasons for this -:
> The device is not in the database. If the device attributes show that this device has a valid manufacturer ID, device ID and type, then this is likely the case (eg. you see a label like “Z-Wave node 1 (0082:6015:020D::2.0)”). Even if the device appears to be in the database, some manufacturers use multiple sets of references for different regions or versions, and your device references may not be in the database. In either case, the database must be updated and you should raise an issue to get this addressed.
> The device initialization is not complete. Once the device is included into the network, the binding must interrogate it to find out what type of device it is. One part of this process is to get the manufacturer information required to identify the device, and until this is done, the device will remain unknown. For mains powered devices, this will occur quickly, however for battery devices the device must be woken up a number of times to allow the discovery phase to complete. This must be performed with the device close to the controller.
…and under ‘show properties’ (still in Paper UI>Configuration>Things) it shows me that Openhab/Z-Wave knows what that the thing is because it shows me this (and a lot of other stuff):
> |zwave_class_basic |BASIC_TYPE_ROUTING_SLAVE|
> |zwave_class_generic IGENERIC_TYPE_SWITCH_MULTILEVEL|
> |zwave_class_specific |SPECIFIC_TYPE_POWER_SWITCH_MULTILEVEL|
When I go to Paper UI>Configuration>Things and click on “Z-Wave Node 005” it has no “channels” whatsoever. So I can’t link its channel(s) to a state (I created an ‘item’ for the light switch, but I can’t link the two together). I’m thinking this is the spot that I’m not understanding. I basically want to get the light switch onto OpenHab’s ‘control’ page to turn the switch on/off and see any other status it can provide (dimmer, voltage, etc). Or as noted above “The device initialization is not complete”.
I have OpenHab installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3. The version of OH I have is openHAB 2.5.9-1 (I updated OH a week or two ago in anticipation of getting started). I also use ‘Visual Studio Code’ to edit configuration files, but I’m pretty new to VSC.
I guess the main question in this is "I want to get the light switch onto OpenHab’s ‘control’ page to turn the switch on/off and see any other status it can provide (dimmer, voltage, etc). If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. I’ve been trying to figure this out for the past couple days on my own and have scoured and googled the internet and come across a lot of great information, but I’m googled out (lol).
I’m still new to this and trying to get the basics (editing config files, seeing the things I add get onto the ‘control’ page, etc) before I jump ahead to hab panel and stuff.
Thanks for reading and possibly helping!
