Issues with using more than 7 Channels - Z-uno

Post by rommac100 »

So I have been trying to get a 16 port relay board working with the Z-Uno so that I can control my irrigation system using z-wave. I have already tested that all of GPIOs going to the relays work fine (which they do) but I have issues when I try to trigger the relay using the z-wave protocol. Specifically, I try to send a on command to any channel above 7 and it behaves weirdly. Specifically, Channel 8 does not work at all but Channel 9 through 15 (I only need 15 of the 16 relays) start triggering relays 1 through 8. I have already verified that homeseer and my Z-Troller are sending the correct commands. I also tried changing the order of the Channel declaration in my script and it still had similar issues. For clarification purposes, I am using the Arduino IDE 1.6.5, and the Z-Uno library version 2.1.5. My current script is attached. I would appreciate any assistance.

Code: Select all

/ RELAY PINS:
#define RELAY_PIN_1 0
#define RELAY_PIN_2 1
#define RELAY_PIN_3 17
#define RELAY_PIN_4 18
#define RELAY_PIN_5 19
#define RELAY_PIN_6 20
#define RELAY_PIN_7 21
#define RELAY_PIN_8 7
#define RELAY_PIN_9 8
#define RELAY_PIN_10 9
#define RELAY_PIN_11 10
#define RELAY_PIN_12 11
#define RELAY_PIN_13 14
#define RELAY_PIN_14 15
#define RELAY_PIN_15 16

You have 15 getters and setters, but only 8 of them are exposed in ZUNO_SETUP_CHANNELS

Oops I uploaded an older version of the code. But the problem still applies to the uploaded one. Instead for whatever reason the 8th Channel is present on the homeseer interface but does not activate any of the relays. I also tested this problem with 9 channels and I ended up having the eight channel not working and then the 9th channel looping back and activating the 1st channel. I also tested whether the problem still exists if I set half of the 15 channels to be Dimmers instead. When I do this I can get the eight channel to trigger but the rest of the channels trigger nothing.

HS3 is known for mixing channels when there are many Z-Uno swithes. Please have a look on their forums and here. No idea how to overcome it since it is a HS3 bug

Yup you were correct about it being homeseer's fault as I was able to use more than 7 channels on Home Assistant and I analyzed the packets that were being sent out from HS3 and they were being capped at channel 7 and looping back over to 1.
