I finally managed to install the 2nd gen switches in my living room. The physical buttons work. I tested it.
I then managed to include the switches to my zwave network. It shows as “Inovelli Unknown: type=0002, id=0001”
I guess this is because the homeassistant openzwave version that we have does not have the latest manufacture setting file. Based on my research in homeassitant community, it can show as “unknown”, but it should still be fully functional. Is that true?
I tried to turn off and turn on the light from home assistant and i cant seem to get it working.
My zwave switches shows up as “switch” in home assistant. So its easy to call “switch.turn_on” service. But since this switch does not show up as a switch, i am not sure how to turn it off/on via homeassistant.
Thanks Eric. Yes i saw the post earlier. @platup is trying to configure scenes and is in advanced stage. I am at a basic level. I am assuming that he must have got all the basic on/off functionality working already. His feedback will definitely help me move forward.
I will provide all the info i have.
I am running the latest version of HA as a docker container on a Ubuntu laptop.
I am using the aeotec zwave stick.
This is how the red series inovelli switch shows up in my HA
The other thing you could try is unpair the switch and try to update the open-zwave config and then rediscover it.
To do this, you’ll need to pull the “config” folder and all it’s contents from here: https://github.com/OpenZWave/open-zwave
In your “config” directory in hass, create a new folder called zwave, and then place the “config” folder you just downloaded in there.
The last thing will be to add the config_path to your zwave section in your config.yaml. It should look something like:
The sensors are for power monitoring.
It’s actually pretty cool, I’ve always wondered what my Philips Hues were consuming when they’re “off”… and now I know
I’ve also setup Circadian Lighting so it’s pretty neat to compare the power graph with the time of day, and somewhat surprising how much energy is saved just by dimming the lights or switching the color temp.
Did you do anything special to get the sensors to appear in HA? I’ve wiped my HA installation, reset my Aeotec Z-Stick and the LZW30, then re-did the setup, but I still only get the switch entity. No sensors. It is reading the config I pulled from github; I can tell that because it’s populating the device name and config property names.
@platup off late I am having a strange issue. If I toggle the switch from HA , it works. However if I physically click on the switch the light turns off and on, however the status does not update in HA. If I tail the zwave logs, I see no updates. So I am guessing the switch did not send any updates to the zwave USB controller. Are u having the same issue ?
