i an new to openhab. I am trying to get a zwave network setup with about 2 sensors and Gen5 zstick. I have had this zwave network running with the sme zstick and sensors with another opensource tool similar to openhab called OpenRemote.
i have heard a lot about OpenHab so deciding to give this a try. I have OpenHAB installed on Raspberry PI3 using the openhabian image.
Most of the switches that are connected to AC power source seem to be working when i look at the Control in Paper UI.
I am having a lot of trouble with battery power door sensors. They are Monoprice and work great but openhab is not recognizing them and show up as unkown devices.
I excluded one one of them and included it again and this time it id recognize it as “Z-Wave Node 43: ZD2102-5 Door Window Sensor” however it is not reporting any batter or tamper values. It only recognizes “closed” 1st and then the value stays the same.
I also have a Kiwkset door lock that is model number XXXX but it shows up in OpenHAB as “Z-Wave Node 44: 914TRL Touchpad Electronic Deadbolt”. Unfortunately it is not reporting any values back nor is it taking commands on opening / closing.
I tried waking up the devices manually a couple of times and brought then close to the controller (wiith 2 feet) but still no luck on the battery powered sensors.
below are the links to the devices that are not working with Openhab:
a) Monoprice Recessed door sensor
b) Monoprice Z-Wave Garage Door Sensor,
c) Monoprice Door sensor
d) Monoprice Z-Wave Plus PIR Multi Sensor, Temperature - Humidity - Light
All these have been working very reliable for the last 2 years with OpenRemote so i know it is not a hardware issue but probably sometinhg i am missing in my Openhab configurations
All other switches , dimmers that i have seem to get detected and operating in OpenHAB.
Any ideas what i could be doing wrong or if there are any steps missing?
The version of Openhab should be latest available as i just downloaded it few days ago.
