[DEVICE] Fix BinarySwitch problem

Post by pz1 » 18 Nov 2014 14:18

Note: The intention of this topic is to become a FAQ about (binary) Switches. Suggestions for other tested problem/solution are welcome

Question: Binary Switch does not send unsolicited status updates.
Answer: Using a WEBbrowser send the following command. nodeid is the number of the Z-wave device.

Code: Select all

Tested with: v2.0.0-rc20

This recipe worked for only 2 of my 4 failing Z-Wave.me wall switches (All 5 did work correctly out of the box when first installed in RaZ v1.2)

This is a workaround for Z-Wave.Me Switches, Blinds and Dimmers versions 1.8 and lower. Has nothing to do with Z-Way/RaZberry version.

I did not intend to suggest it had to do with versions. It was just to say that when I originally installed them that all five Z-Wave.Me Switches were functioning properly.
There are two remaining that are still wrong after several attempts. Would it help to disconnect them from the 230V for a couple of minutes? I remember having seen that somewhere, but don't remember if it was this one.
