Wake up a Z-Wave node programmatically

Post by Burhop214 » 29 May 2019 09:49

I'm looking for away to wake up a node programmatically, but I don't even know if it's possible.

The Context : I wrote a nodejs application that aim to interface z-wave modules thanks to node-openzwave-shared . Every things works fine with lights but I recently got a PIR sensor that is sleeping directly when I start my nodejs application. Does anyone know how to wake up my PIR sensor programmatically ? (I can wake it up by pressing a physical button but this solution does not satisfy me)

NB : What is the difference between a sleeping node and a awake node ? (I mean technicaly speaking) It'seems that sleeping node can't receive controller command but can anyone confirm this please ?

Hi, I think that I can confirm your last sentence. That´s also the reason why you can´t wake up the device from any program or application.
You must wait for wake up from the device. Maybe you can change wake up settings for test to 1 minute, but this may drain battery in a week.
