Benext Tag Reader with z-way

Post by creaflow » 23 Jul 2014 14:38

Dear all,

can someone explain please, how I can use the RFID tags with the Benext tag reader using z-way?
I have the original Benext tags, but I do not know how to add them for authentication.
The PIN code works fine.

Thanks and regards,
Chris

You should add your tag's unique code the same way you added a pin.

When you press Home button on your device and pass a yet unknown tag nearby, it should send its code to controller as a USER_CODE_REPORT with UserID=0 and Status=0.
The problem is z-way currently ignores the code part of USER_CODE_REPORT if Status=0 (would be fixed in the next update), so you cannot easily get it as /ZWaveAPI/Run/devices[x].UserCode.data[0].code.value.

But there's still a packet payload printed in the log, so you can get it from there as a workaround.
Find sequence "63 03 00 00" in the received packet, and take next 8 bytes after it (maybe not exactly 8, but it should be all the remaining bytes except the last one).
For example, it would be "A8 B5 2C 45 32 60 D0 EF". Now you may set it with /ZWaveAPI/Run/devices[x].UserCode.Set(userId,"\xA8\xB5\x2C\x45\x32\x60\xD0\xEF",1) where "userId" is a slot you want to use, and "x" is device id assigned to your device.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for this intersting hint!
I tried to follow your describtion, but I don't get it working. I have searched for the sequence and found the following:

Code: Select all

Then I called the following URL in my Browser:

The browser returns "null" and in the log the following lines show up:

I am a beginner, but it looks good to me.

When I press Home and put the tag in front of the reader, the log output is the following:

Unfortunately your tag code is not a valid string, and it breaks when performing UTF8 conversion.

According to the documentation, UserCode should be "4 to 10 ASCII digits", but tag readers seem to ignore this and transfer code as binary.

The only thing I can currently think of, is sending a raw command to device:
/ZWaveAPI/Run/SendData(2,[0x63,0x01,50,1,0x8F,0x12,0x44,0xC3,0x00,0x00,0x01,0x08,0x00,0x00])

EDIT:
In the upcoming version there would be UserCode.SetRaw() method, so you can write

Code: Select all

/ZWaveAPI/Run/devices[2].UserCode.SetRaw(50, [ 0x8F,0x12,0x44,0xC3,0x00,0x00,0x01,0x08,0x00,0x00 ], 1)
Furthermore, you can now automate the process. For example, you can have the following handler to add a new tag:

Code: Select all

var uc = devices[2].UserCode;
if (uc.data[0] && uc.data[0].hasCode.value) {
    var code = uc.data[0].code.value;
    if (typeof code === "string")
        uc.Set(userId, code, 1);
    else
        uc.SetRaw(userId, code, 1);
}

Hello,
I'm trying to configure my tag reader.
You said your pin code work's fine, can you please share your configuration ?
It still not working on mine :(

If I understand fine we have to wait untill a new razberry firmware for RFID tag ?

Thanks

Software, not firmware. It is already available (1.7.2), and supports binary UserCodes (used by tags).

Ok I will try it as soon as possible.
What is the command to update the software ?
Is it the same as an install ?
wget -q -O - razberry.z-wave.me/install | sudo bash

Thanks

That is really great - with the new SetRaw command everything works - I can add my RFID tags now and use the readers full potential :)
Thank you very much!!!
