Since a couple of weeks/months, we are in the process to redo 5 rooms @ home (kids are moving from room to another room) and of course, I would need to redo a bunch of device name and room name in Zway..
Is there an easy way to tell openLuup to completely start over fresh without having to delete/rename them one by one in openLuup ?
I hope this is the correct forum – apologies if not!
I have a Raspberry Pi3 with a Razberry Z-Wave card installed. I have installed the Z-Way software and have successfully included a Fibaro Z-Wave switch on the Z-Wave network. I can toggle the switch on and off successfully from my laptop through port 8083 of the Raspberry Pi3.
On the same Raspberry Pi3 I have installed openLuup on which I have installed the Z-Way plugin. I can access this through port 3480 on the Raspberry Pi3 from my laptop.
Here is where I have come to a dead stop. How do I get access to the Fibaro Z-Wave switch from the openLuup application? I can find no documentation that tells me specifically how to do this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have an odd issue which seems to be only for Fibaro wall plugs. They come in to Z-Way with two "electric meter" entrys, one "Power" meter and a couple of alarm entrys. In addition to the switch that is.
One of the "electric meters" is KWh and the other one is seemingly Watts, but it stays at 0/-1w. The "Power" meter shows the Watts used right now.
When these come into openluup, the wrong electric meter is selected for displaying the Watts, is there any way to manipulate which one openLuup uses? I see that the sub channel for power also is transferred, but it isn't in the data Veraflux is transmitting to my influxdb..
Haven't used the watts reading for anything before now, now i want to estimate when my dryer is done based on power usage. 🙂
Having some trouble getting the Fibaro TRV device working with the ZWay bridge. The device works in the ZWay (Zwave.Me) Smart Home GUI, and creates a number of devices in OpenLuup, some of which appear to have the right variables in it. Changing the XML and JSON files makes no difference.
I also tried creating a separate child device for Parameter 67 (using the gui for the ZWay bridge, see below), and setting the XML/JSON types for that device (like I've havd to do for a few other devices). This results in a device that correctly displays the TRV setpoint, but chaning the setpoint in the OpenLuup gui does not result in anything being transmitted to/by ZWay.

Nearly there with the migration ..
Is it ok to use older device files or do they get updated from time to time?
Now that a fresh openLuup is up and running and connected to Zway where's the best place to source device files without vera? I probably have them on another openLuup install but not 100% which ones to copy over.
I've finally gotten the stuff to work together. Now - before I migrate all the vera devices, how do i use this?
How does the variables NameDevices and CloneRooms work? (is there a manual or description of the plugin?)
CloneRooms seems obvious, but is that the best way to go when I have more bridges?
I have an old Z-wave.me wall controller that I still use for turning the espresso machine on and off. The controller controls an Aeotec Micro Switch that for the moment is still on my Vera.
The wall controller has always been a bit tricky to work with on Vera. On my old UI5 VeraLite I managed to get it associated to the switch.
On the UI7 Vera I never got that to work, instead I could use it as a trigger in Reactor to detect when sl_SceneActivated was 1 or 0.
I have moved the wall controller to Z-way and there it is included as it should.
a30b06dd-1f3c-4ca6-9966-b0a6f183de04-image.png Compared to when it was connected to the Vera it has proper on/off buttons so that it can be controlled from the Z-way GUI.
The command classes are the following:
68a54e6b-b240-40b2-95bb-9696bf7789cf-image.png In OpenLuup it still shows up as it did in the Vera, i.e. only showing battery.
985acfb7-6af9-4cf0-a426-79d4358baf6e-image.png Is it possible to change device type so that it get the right properties in OpenLuup?
At the moment it does not have any useful properties except for battery level. It e.g. lacks the sl_SceneActivated variable.
Another step would then be to move the Aeotec switch to Z-way and to then associate the wall controller to the switch in Z-way. It seems as if this can be done in the ExpertUI.
Just finished migrating to Zway, Although there are some devices that are being detected as a dimmer when in fact are Shutters.
What would be the best route to properly change how this devices are being detected by the ZWay plugin on openluup?
I must be missing something but I am having now some devices fail on the bridge due to them running out of battery. Upon battery replacement, they function properly on z-way-server but the failure remains over the bridge. The failure shows up on the parent device and it says that a specific command class has failed. Looking at the return API json, it should not return any command class level failure however so I am not sure where the bridge gets its failed state from...
edit: Nevermind, I figured it out. It is a gap in data alignment between the different z-way APIs. The zwave and JS API got the update that the device recovered but not the smarthome API. Pausing and restarting the zwave app on z-way fixed it.
I noticed the change when I switched from the RaZberry to UZB (During the switch all devices moved to the Room 101 briefly, maybe that had something to do with it). Any idea why this would have happened? Can I easily change them all back to enabled? Also, what exactly does this attribute do? I only noticed because none of my z-wave devices were showing up in Imperihome and when I set the "disabled" attribute back to 0, the device shows up. Thanks.
So I started experimenting by moving some of my wallplugs and power switch zwave devices over from VeraPlus to Z-Way.
In Z-Way this results in different elements for switching, Watts and kWh. Some even have Volts which I never saw on Vera.
But using the Z-Way plugin in openLuup only the Switch element is visible and all other elements of the zwave node are not.
I don't really know to much about Z-Way or the plugin, but am trying to learn on the run.
Maybe someone can give me some pointers what and where to look for to solve this?
Just wanted to point out and start the topic of the following:
We are working on a project that will allow to use Z-Way library as the core of Z-Wave in Home Assistant. First releases will be around June/July I believe
Additionally there are ways to support Z-Way from HAss via HTTP requests. This is a community project and we have no deep knowledge about it.
Why would that make you reluctant? It doesn’t seem to be any different from any other local startup supporting funds in other countries.
have in your plans or request to develop for openluup a bridge to other z-wave stick (aeotec z-stick, vera atom ezlo v2) or rpi daughter cards (aeotec z.pi 7) ?
Is the actual z-way bridge stable as far as you konw ?
I'm looking for a stable zwave sw/hw solution on rpi/openluup.
The ZWay stick (and Razberry board) and plug-in are the best I can offer so far, and pretty stable AFAIK. I definitely won’t be doing anything for Ezlo. The Aeotec stick API was a bit of a nightmare last time I looked, I don’t recall if anyone else did anything on that.
I wonder if anyone else has any thoughts?
There is an additional license for the Z-Way software, but I would say it is well worth it. My experience is that it's extremely stable (haven't crashed once in the years i've had it), and the control of the network through the expert panel is probably the best you can find.
The "Smart Home" UI is not great, but it doesn't matter much if you're using openLuup.
I've installed z-way UZB stick (most recent version) on rpi4 with bullseye os 32 bit and z-way controller (it doesn't run on 64 bit yet).
It seems all ok. I've at moment added a fibaro switch and it's running ok.
Just a question about the openluup device page : is the status of devices refreshed automatically after a command from the browser page (for example a click to turn on/off a switch) ? it seems not
No, the devices page (or any other in the openLuup console, except the Lua Test pages) does not update, it has to be refreshed.
This was an early decision that made the console much simpler, and went with the assumption that AltUI would be the de-facto interface. The console evolved over time to be much more complete and now it would benefit from a complete rewrite to make it update in real time. Not likely to happen in the near future. Is this a problem?
no akbooer, no problem . I have to control the device via sw (lua).
p.s. excuse if I use this post to ask another question about openluup console : can you confirm that isn't possible to define a device trigger variable through your console (trigger table -> create) ?
Yes, that's true. Sadly, that page is only a stub at the moment (in fact it shows the session cookies, which isn't much help to you.)
AltUI has its own device watch triggers, of course, and openLuup has its own (currently hidden) way of triggering from variable changes, which would make it possible to use even in the absence of AltUI, but the console pages to do this haven't yet been finished. There didn't seem to be much demand for this.
