LZW31-SN Dimmer, Manual turn on no state reporting

Hi there, I have the red series dimmer working with Home Assistant. I got the config set up, and all sensors show up and report correctly.
However, when I manually turn it on it doesn’t report that the switch is turned on to HA. It shows the power usage correctly as well. If I use the toggle switch from HA, it does turn on and turn off correctly.

My current workaround is to set up an automation that checks the power usage sensor and if it’s above 0 flip the switch to “on” position.

The switch is about 1 meter away from the hub and I have about 50 other Zwave devices on my network.

All parameters are default except for Parameter 1 is at 0 (instant on), and LED color brightness and color settings.
Anyone else experiences this?

I fixed the issue by connecting the node without the security. So there is that…

This only happens to me when i change the ramp rate. If the ramp rate is standard it works fine. but if change it it does not report the status. very frustrating

I can confirm, that this is the same for me. I think the reason it got fixed before is because when i readded it back it went all back to default settings. Perhaps it can be included in the next firmware update :grinning:

omg i am having the same issue using zwave2mqtt addon with hassio. i have been ripping my hair out since everything else seems to be reporting and working fine except updating the entity state when i use the physical switch to turn off and on. since this is my first zwave device i reset everything to factory and tried again but still see the issue. you can even see the power reporting when i am turning the switch on and off (going from 0–> 211.8).

here are the debug logs i found when adding the device.

in a previous attempt to fix this issue i did see “duplicate scene notification …dropping” in the OZW_Log.txt but i am not seeing that since my reset of everything. i was also changing the ramp rate to zero like @skynet but the errors above were before i even got to that point.

i’m happy to help test changes or updates since i dont have any other zwave devices yet, i was about to buy a lot of these for my new house.

I use Home Assistant with Zwave2MQTT with the LZW31-SN, but not experiencing these issues (even with the ramp rate set to 0.

Do you have the HASS Discovery option turned on in zwave2mqtt, or are you manually configuring things in Home Assistant for this switch? It could be that zwave2mqtt is just reporting things incorrectly to Home Assistant.

awesome thank you for the logs and i am glad it is working through zwave2mqtt, hopefully we can compare and i can find what is different.

i am using discovery and using the mqtt integration on the hass side. are you using the integration or yaml file for the mqtt settings?

what is the firmware of your dimmer? i’m showing 1.35

i dont even see anything in the zwave2mqtt debug panel about receiving a scene change. i think this is where the problem is happening. can you post your manufacturer_specific.xml and inovelli zwave config folder? i can bring those over to my setup and test.

i really appreciate the help these dimmers are almost everything i want in a smart switch

I am using a YAML file to configure my devices.

My setup

YAML file (for light/dimming only. I am currently not tracking energy usage)

light:
  - platform: mqtt
    name: Living Room Light
    command_topic: "zwave/11/38/1/0/set"
    brightness_command_topic: "zwave/11/38/1/0/set"
    brightness_value_template: "{{ (value_json.value) | round(0) }}"
    brightness_state_topic: "zwave/11/38/1/0"
    brightness_scale: 99
    on_command_type: "brightness"
    payload_on: 99
    payload_off: 0
    state_topic: "zwave/11/38/1/0"
    state_value_template: "{{ 0 if value_json.value == 0 else 99 }}"

The 1.35 you are seeing is likely not the firmware version (it did not change when I updated to the beta firmware on any of my devices)
image
I have a mix of the original firmware and the beta 1.41 firmware versions, both of which are working fine for me.

I am actually using the config files from the Inovelli Github page:

When you have HASS Discovery turned on, there should be a section that shows the component configuration. Could you post what yours is showing for this device?

ok i am also using the config straight from their github.

here is the component configuration for the dimmer:

{
“type”: “light”,
“object_id”: “dimmer”,
“discovery_payload”: {
“schema”: “template”,
“brightness_template”: “{{ (value_json.value / 99 * 255) | round(0) }}”,
“state_topic”: “homeassistant/4/38/1/0”,
“state_template”: “{{ “off” if value_json.value == 0 else “on” }}”,
“command_topic”: “homeassistant/4/38/1/0/set”,
“command_on_template”: “{{ ((brightness / 255 * 99) | round(0)) if brightness is defined else 255 }}”,
“command_off_template”: “0”,
“device”: {
“identifiers”: [
“zwave2mqtt_0xc78fa832_node4”
],
“manufacturer”: “Inovelli”,
“model”: “LZW31-SN Dimmer Red Series (0x0001)”,
“name”: “nodeID_4”,
“sw_version”: “1.35”
},
“name”: “nodeID_4_dimmer”,
“unique_id”: “zwave2mqtt_0xc78fa832_4-38-1-0”
},
“discoveryTopic”: “light/nodeID_4/dimmer/config”,
“values”: [
“38-1-0”
],
“persistent”: false,
“id”: “light_dimmer”
}

I think the best next step would be to try to determine if the issue is with zwave2mqtt, or with Home Assistant.

Do you have the ability to ssh into hass? If so, you may be able to run the following command to see the brightness value change as you turn the light on or off:
mosquitto_sub -t homeassistant/4/38/1/0 | grep -o '"value":*.[^,]'
As you turn the light on/off or change the brightness, it should look like this:


If you see the value change with the light status, then it is likely just a HA config issue that we need to figure out.

I wasn’t using “zwave2mqtt” i was using the native Zwave home assistant integration.

i think the issue is most certainly on the zwave2mqtt side. i have been using mqtt explorer to watch the homeassistant/4/38/1/0 topic and i only see changes when i am pushing from the hass side. right now i’m running hassio and zwave2mqtt as a hassio add-on. i’m thinking about tearing down the add on and running zwave2mqtt in a normal docker container. that should get closer to your setup. either that or something is just not configured correctly somewhere.

So when you turn the light on/off from HA, or when you turn it on/off directly through zwave2mqtt, you see the updates on the topic homeassistant/4/38/1/0, but when you turn the light on or off directly from the switch itself, you do not see any updates on this topic?

sorry i really appreciate you sticking with me on this one, i often forget that you are not looking at what i am nor able to read my mind. here is a clearer breakdown of the tests and results

toggle dimmer physically --> no update on topic homeassistant/4/38/1/0 and therefore no status change in HA

toggle dimmer from HA --> i see value changes on topic homeassistant/4/38/1/0 and light responds as expected with HA entity state being updated accordingly

set level in zwave2mqtt --> see value change on topic homeassistant/4/38/1/0 and light responds as expected with HA state updated accordingly

based on that, it seems the issue is between the dimmer and zwave2mqtt but ONLY for the “level” 4-38-1-0. everything else communicates fine.

So you get no update on that topic when toggling physically, but the light still turns on and off when using the physical switch?

Could you provide a snippet of your OW_Log.txt file showing what happens when you use the physical buttons on your switch?

correct, the light still functions as expected but no updated on the topic.

nothing gets written to the OZW_Log.txt when pressing the button but here is the entire log after i restarted the container.

I see some errors about not being able to load Localization.xml, NotificationCCTypes.xml or SensorMultiLevelCCTypes.xml.

Are these files present in your zwave config directory?

SUCCESS!!! i went and grabbed those files from https://github.com/OpenZWave/open-zwave stopped the container, cleared out cache, started the add-on back up and boom, status is being reported as expected and reporting to physical button. thank you so much for digging through it, i feel stupid since the error was staring me in the face the entire time.

I’m running into this issue as well when setting configuration parameter 1 to 0. I don’t have a neutral, so I don’t know if I can reliably use the power options (I still see them on one of the switches I didn’t tell it was a no-neutral switch). Out of the box with the default config it does report the state when controlled locally.

I’m currently using ozwave 1.4 with the copied in configs to the ozwave folder. Happy to migrate to the MQTT if that solves it for 1.6, if anyone can confirm.

the issues for me was missing files. i guess when i copied over the config some files never made it and were causing issues. i had the errors the controller logs when i first would start it up so i could see exactly which files were missing. i’m not sure if this is the same for you and i haven’t tried these without a neutral.
