Z-Station Firmware Updates and Zwave JS Settings

Post by JasonJoel »

Which firmware should be used for updating the Z-Wave firmware on the Z-Station? I see no references to Z-Station at all in the firmware areas of the site.

Also, is there any guidance on configuring Z-Station with Zwave JS? Before someone asks - I use Zwave JS instead of Z-Way as I have a lot of issues with Zwave LR devices not completing interviews, etc, on Z-Way while they work fine on Zwave JS.

For instance, what values should be used for these settings:
"Normal Power Level"
"Measured output power at 0 dBm"

Thank you,
Jason

Sorry, I don't understand your question. Please provide more info about Z-Way issues: logs.

1. Any comment on which z-wave firmware to use for the Z-Station?
2. Any comment on the power settings on Zwave JS?
3. As far as the Z-Wave LR issues on z-way:

Those two TX controls will not work on Z-Station - it uses another mechanism available in Z-Way via

Code: Select all

http://localhost:8083/JS/Run/zway.SerialAPISetupSetTxPower(50)
. But the default power should be more than enough!

The frequency should also be changed via Z-Way or using the command described here: https://z-wave.me/support/serial-api-commands/

Thank you. As I mentioned I do not use Z-Way since it will not complete interviews on so many of my Z-Wave LR devices.

As the Z-Station is working OK on zwave js ui with the default settings, include Z-Wave LR, I will just leave everything at the default.

Could you please help us understand what is wrong wit h your LR devices? Z-Way is perfectly working for hundreds of different devices including dozens of LR devices. I'm curious to see the inclusion log.

And yes, Z-Station's antenna is so good that it should work as is.

You might need to do

Code: Select all

chmod +x zme_zigbee
first.
