Problem with Raspberry Pi 3 / Z-Wave board

Post by Jeff66 » 23 Nov 2016 21:03

Hi
I'm new to z-wave. I have an old background in Unix and I'm interested in automation. So I decided to try to setup a Pi 3 with Z-Wave.

I tried with noobs, learned it, switched to jessie. Tried almost all the images available. With no success.

I'm able to setup the PI, connect in Ethernet or WiFi to my network. Able to setup the Z-Wave interface (or Jeedom)

I did all what was recommended to avoid the UART problem. But my Z-Wave network won't work.

I checked the board, the test is OK.
I measured the GPIO pins, voltage is OK.

I think I have an issue with the network. I edited my /etc/hosts. Changed the speed of the TTY, under clocked the PI, nothing works.

Which device tree is the right one to add at the end of /boot/config.txt ?
Is it pi3-disable-bt or pi3-miniuart-bt ?

What could prevent Z-Wave to communicate ?

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B V1.2 2015 with a Z-Wave which looks like a Serie 500. But it looks like a mix between the image of the 300 and the 500 when I look at the images on http://razberry.z-wave.me

Thanks for your help ! :geek:

Have you tried the RPi 3 image that z-way team put out?

Just downloaded and installed.
Upgraded to 2.2.5 through IP:8084
Done a raspi-confi and set the locale, country, time zone, etc

Connected in ssh under pi@My_local_ip to setup the WiFi (with sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf)
Wifi connection works fine.

Connected in admin expert mode.
Added Meteo App, works fine
But Z-Wave still tells me : Cannot start Z-Wave binding: Error: Bad data - communication failed

In Expert mode, under Network / Controller Info, I get Error handling data from server

Tried to send Controllen NIF, got Error handling data
/ZWaveAPI/Run/controller.SendNodeInformation()

I'm stuck. Any idea ?

Hello,

can you send a picture from your Razberry and a picture from Error?
Please check the Port from the Razberry.

Thank you for helping me !

Which picture of error do you want ? I can post /var/log/z-way-server.log or a screen copy of the various error that I get on my html interface. Just let me know what you want.

Hi !

Try a clean install and login as User "pi".

Then Update Raspberry 3 Firmware for stability work with commands:

sudo apt-get install rpi-update
sudo rpi-update

After this, install the zwave Software as pi User:

wget -q -O - razberry.z-wave.me/install | sudo bash

This was the way that helps me :D
Raspi 3, Zwave.me 2.3.6.

Hello,

has you restart you system after installing Z-Way?

Please check the Port and your bootloader in the expert UI.

regards
