It's been a harrowing experience trying to get UZB to work with the Zwave PC Controller software as it crashes as soon as it starts. I learnt that first I need to update the UZB firmware, which I can't do using Windows because Z-Wave.me no longer supports it with the latest versions. Then I had to learn how to install Linux and finally this topic on how to install latest Z-Wave.me software version 3.0.0 to update the UZB firmware so I can finally get it to work on Windows using Z-Wave's PC Controller.
A little tip for beginners like me, if you run into an error about cannot open device, permission denied after starting the z-way-server, it's because the TTY port where UZB is connected is write only and you need to give it read only persmissions. You can do this by using the command
Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how to update the firmware, when I go into Network -> Controller Info, I see Serial API version 5.25 and SDK Version 6.71.01 and software version number v3.0.0
I scroll down to Firmware Update and it gives me an option to update bootloader from 5.25 to 40196 but when I click on it gives and error, Unable to update data. /ZWave.zway/ZMEBootloaderUpgrade
Any suggestions and I'm pretty much at my wits end on why it's to difficult to get a certified controller to with an official z-wave software.
