Zwave Manual Send Data Payload

hi @chris

is it possible to send manually payload like
Data=‘0x71 0x5 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x6 0x16 0x0 0x0’ to a specific Node?
Would like to find out the correct events for sending Notifications without reconfiguring them over and over in the DB.
There a mutlipley manuals with irritating different events and types for a siren device.

No - this is not possible.

ok I am struggling a bit with transferring this: (see different payloads for sounds at the end of the page)

into something like this:

I think your Config in the DB the event 1 is actually referring when the item is set to the value it triggers
SMOKE with Notification Message 0x01
which event number 1, 2, 3 etc. assign e.g. SMOKE:1 to is acutally not relevant?

where is the definition which hex values SMOKE, ACCESS_CONTROL, etc. are resolved to?

not sure if this asked clear enough :smiley: :smiley:


is that it?

public enum AlarmType {
    GENERAL(0, "General"),
    SMOKE(1, "Smoke"),
    CARBON_MONOXIDE(2, "Carbon Monoxide"),
    CARBON_DIOXIDE(3, "Carbon Dioxide"),
    HEAT(4, "Heat"),
    FLOOD(5, "Flood"),
    ACCESS_CONTROL(6, "Access Control"),
    BURGLAR(7, "Burglar"),
    POWER_MANAGEMENT(8, "Power Management"),
    SYSTEM(9, "System"),
    EMERGENCY(10, "Emergency"),
    COUNT(11, "Count");

ok I think I understood the most from above. only the event enumeration is still open.
I still think its not relevant
event1=SMOKE:1 resolves to 0x1:0x1
I could also just set

Yep - that’s it.

You can find the full list here -:

understood that.
added all channels that are documented to the config from different manuals to find out which are actually really work.
I will remove the non working from the config again to get things clean.

however there seems to be a character limit to the config field which is only visible after “saving”. the input was cut then at 256 chars
is that limit intented?


It’s a limitation of the database so isn’t so easy to get around.
