Hardly ever do i go out and buy multiple sensors before testing atleast one. I order 5 of these sensors, they were 25 on amazon. 2 have arrived. First one is getting all kinds of errors and no data sent back. Second one manufacturer can’t be recognized.

I have no clue where to start with this. I’ve tried, excluding it, re-adding, multiple updates and reboots. Any suggestions?

That looks to be a filtered trace log with little useful information. Debug level unfiltered logs are needed for debugging.

Yeah I have it filtered for that node, I’ll remove the filter and see if I can capture it.

The developer has said trace level is not useful. Please use debug.

I have debug turned on for zwave, is there anything else i should change?

I woke up this morning to half my zwave items being offline, and front door (this sensor) was also offline but in habmin it was waiting to initialize. Rebooted openhab and it looks like the item fully installed but still not getting a reading. Actually seen node dead for node 25 at one point. Attached is a new log unfiltered.Hinge Debug Log.txt (124.7 KB)

Now it says in habmin “Node Initializing MANUFACTURER”

Hey look at that, started working.

I can see the switch go from 0 to 255 and I can see item go on and off, but I can’t see it in paper under the thing or on sitemap other then a lightbulb icon goes on/off

The zwave log viewer might make it easier to see what is happening.

Yes I’ve been using the log viewer, nothing stands out. I got it fully working however its item status is blank in paper. I added the second one and this time its was able to identify it however same issues as the first. This is going to be painful as I have three more to add as well.
