Re: BUG : 3.0.6 (Probably others...) Battery marked device dead on restart = NOP packets on each unsolicited report

I will chime in here to say that every time I restart the z-way server which only happens once every few months, upon startup, I see a random number of devices show as dead as well and I have to go undo this by sending a JS API command to undo this for a battery device or I just need to send a NIF f...

Re: Does anyone know if Eaton/Cooper Aspire Z-Wave switches/outlets need some sort of proprietary device to set up?

look up the manual of the switch. I can't remember now. It is exactly like any other zwave device: set the controller in inclusion mode, and wake up the device making sure that the device is not already included in another network. There is practically nothing more vanilla than these devices for z-w...

Re: Razberry Z-Way 3.0.0--CRC16 and Security classes showing up

Thanks @PoltoS but I am just wondering if you could just prevent any new command classes from showing up on the configuration from anything but during the user configuration. Understanding the mechanism is great but you won't be able to prevent corrupt packets from coming in, nor will we be able to ...

Re: Why do I see multiple items for the same device? (i.e. 20.0, 20.1, etc)

That's unfortunately how the device maker decided to structure its firmware. Why make it simple when you can make it very complicated? I tend to avoid these products like the pest....

Re: Why do I see multiple items for the same device? (i.e. 20.0, 20.1, etc)

You probably want to read up on the zwave API device architecture. There are several levels for a device: node id: self explanatory instance: This is used by devices requiring multiples of the same command class: multi switch, energy monitor with multiple phases etc... command class: The type of dat...

Re: Razberry Z-Way 3.0.0--CRC16 and Security classes showing up

I just had one device do this. I literally have had one device with this problem in 2-3 months. It is still annoying and I learned how to recover it using a JS API command. @PoltoS, I know you are waiting to reproduce it and figure out what the exact mechanism is but in the meantime, could you not i...

Re: SDK 4.24?

This is the version of the zwave library used by the device's firmware. SDK stands for "Software Development Kit".

Re: Controller is secondary in the network. Your primary controller is in a special SIS mode

I have the exact same configuration on my installation with exactly the same controller info but I do not get "the controller is secondary" message and am able to include just fine. Did you setup the controller initially as a secondary?

Re: Razberry Z-Way 3.0.0--CRC16 and Security classes showing up

I am now pretty much convinced that this problem is due to corrupted frames coming in to the zwave dongle and passing the CRC check. Lowering overall RF noise on the network helps but I fundamentally, CC should never be added after the interview is complete so a block should be made to not allow CC...
