Zigbee - Serial Error: Port /dev/ttyACM1 does not exist


I followed Zigbee binding installation, read maany topics regarding problem, but still nothing help.
I am on OMV with Debian GNU/Linux 9.5
I’ve checked:

  • openhab in dialout and tty group:
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root dialout 166, 1 wrz 29 18:00 /dev/ttyACM1
  • EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyACM1" and visible in systemctl status openhab2.service
  • Reinstalled binding
  • Rebooted
  • Check dmesg for device name
  • feature:install openhab-transport-serial -> done

Anything else?

And what did it say? /dev/ttyACM1 is only one possibility.

Zigbee module is assigned to this part. ACM0 is Bluetooth and ACM2 is ZWave.

On my RPi, my Z-Wave is /dev/ttyUSB0 and my Zigbee is dev/ttyUSB1 This is on Raspbian which is based on Debian.
I am only using Z-Wave currently. I am using a HUSBZB-1 stick.

I get message only for Zigbee module that is not exist. Is there a possibility to check manually if dongle is flashed properly? (Try a connetion or something…) I’ve flashed it with tutorial and everything seemed to be fine. Info from logs:

Which version of OH?

openhab2: 2.5.0~S1704-1

Try OH 2.4?

I rather do not want to do a mess with my config files during revert. A question is why it’s not working on last snapshot. Did I miss somethig ?

The snapshot is unstable. Things are expected to be broken.

I strongly suggest not to change back to 2.4. This will not ultimately solve any issue if there is a problem with the binding, and 2.4 is now very old and there have been a lot of improvements.

I also think it’s unlikely that using the 2.4 binding will solve this issue, and I think that the problem is unlikely to be in the binding since the binding doesn’t directly access the serial ports.

Sure. Do you have idea what to check next ?

No - sorry. Normally these sort of issues are related to things that your messages indicate you’ve already checked, so I’m not sure why it’s not providing this port.

So, you think there is no hope ?? ;/. Maybe there is something with a dongle? Can I check it somehow if it’s properly flashed with any program?

Since it is not working with OH, it likely is not properly flashed.

In logs it seems is properly recognized:

[ 3.748029] usb 1-6.1: new full-speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd
[ 3.873239] usb 1-6.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0451, idProduct=16a8
[ 3.873242] usb 1-6.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 3.873244] usb 1-6.1: Product: TI CC2531 USB CDC
[ 3.873246] usb 1-6.1: Manufacturer: Texas Instruments

This just means that the USB device arbitration worked - this means that the USB works, and the device was recognised. It doesn’t mean that the device works, or that there is any firmware loaded.

First time I go with procedure from https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/zigbee/
Second time I’ve try https://www.zigbee2mqtt.io/getting_started/flashing_the_cc2531.html
Should I try another flash program configuration?

I am not very familiar with these devices - the Chinese copies tend to be quite poor quality and I’ve seen a few posts recently where people found they don’t work.

Most of my work is with the Ember derived chipsets - maybe someone else will be able to help further with the TI chipset.

I perform procedure https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/zigbee/ again.
Flash with proper firmware version. I’ve tested with Z-Tool and I was able to connect and change color of a light, so it seems that dongle was properly flashed.
When connected I’m still getting an error:

Serial Error: Port /dev/ttyACM2 does not exist.
Failed to open the dongle.

Anyone with CC2531 can help?
