Thanks for the quick response. I believe I have home assistant and z-wave JS all setup on my NAS device.
What I’m confused on is what I need to do to start “adopting” the Inovelli switches. The doc I linked to above suggested a number of config changes and such, but that only applies to Open Z-Wave…so what setup/config changes do I need to make in my current setup?
I would highly recommend you run the zwaveJSMQTT docker container instead. Works the same as the zwaveJS container but has a user interface. You just disable the MQTT since it’s not necessary. Then, you can do the adding and naming in this container before starting HA and letting the devices appear there.
There are some settings you can’t change in HA right now, but you can in the zwaveJSmqtt interface.
So I’m ready to setup all my switches, but I think I’m missing some steps.
I’m in the HA/Configuration/Integrations screen. I tried to “Add Integration”, but Inovelli doesn’t show up in the search. I triple clicked on the config button of a switch hoping it would trigger some notification, but nothing happened.
Right, the Inovelli is talking to the Zwave JS software through the USB stick. Assuming you have the USB stick seen by zwave JS server, you would then add the Zwave JS integration, and inside that via config, you can add node to put the USB stick in inclusion mode, then hit the Inovelli config 3 times to add. It might take up to a minute for it to include fully!
Since you’re using ZwaveJStoMQTT bring the web interface up for that. Hit the blue add/remove device button and pick inclusion.
Once you a device added, click it which opens a drop down box and under device ID you can put in a name for what it is. Make sure you hit the arrow to save it.
While in that drop down box, you can also click on the different rows in the values section and change the settings you want. For example change “[17-112-0-51] Physical On/Off Delay” to disabled to remove the 0.7 second delay between pressing the toggle and a switch or dimmer turning on or off.
Then, in HA you add the zwaveJS integration. It will pull in the devices with the names you gave them so you know which switch is doing what function.
I’ve had a few switches (and one lock) show up as Unknown (Unknown manufacturer 0xXXXX 0xXXXX Unknown product 0xXXXX)…what’s the best way to manage this? Do I remove/forget the device and try to re-adopt it?
One switch failed to adopt…the LED on the switch went into adoption mode, but it was never discovered. Otherwise the switch seems to be operating fine. Any suggestions on how to handle this?
That typically means that something didn’t go quite right during the process. It included, but not completely. You’re correct . . . exclude it and add it again.
Sometimes even “new” switches have been previously paired with another hub . . . testing or even a re-sold return. Run a general exclusion on your hub and exclude that device. Then try to pair it again.
