Cannot get tricklestar to work! [SOLVED]
« on: July 31, 2010, 04:19:39 pm »
I decided to ditch my MCV dongle for tricklestar. I have been trying for 2 days to get my new tricklestar USB dongle working with LinuxMCE. I have followed the steps in the wiki, I have tried manually adding the template, I have tried adding the device ID and letting it auto-detect. The zwave device is always added but it doesn't work. When I did have it successfully starting and logging, it would not add devices. The light on the dongle is lit during the install but then it goes out, and stays out. Now, I get this message and nothing else after:

05      07/31/10 9:46:33.150            No callback received: await_callback: -1 timer: 31 <0xb7099b90>
05      07/31/10 9:46:33.363            Got reply to ZW_MEMORY_GET_ID, Home id: 0x00d8b265, our node id: 1 <0xb7099b90>

05      07/31/10 9:50:42.584            Got a reload command from 0  <0xb6097b90>
05      07/31/10 9:50:42.840            void ClientSocket::Disconnect() on this socket: 0x88ea348 (m_Socket: 7) <0xb709a6c0>
Return code: 2
2       07/31/10 09:50:42       139 (spawning-device)   Device requests restart... count=1/50 dev=139
2       07/31/10 09:50:43       139 (spawning-device)   Device was disabled or removed. Stopping and marking as not running.

Any ideas, I am getting frustrated.

The wiki does not specify which process to follow when using the USB dongle with the remote (both the 200 and 300).

Do I follow the steps in How to install and use ZWave -> SUC/SIS Mode (recommended)? Specifically this step:

When using SUC/SIS mode you must add an Inclusion Controller as the 2nd device in your ZWave network (the first device being the ZWave USB interface itself). An Inclusion Controller is the device you use to include ZWave devices into the ZWave network - this might be your ZWave remote control or possibly a wireless wall switch as these can often do double duty as an Inclusion Controller. You can add additional Inclusion Controllers or indeed any other ZWave devices at any time in the future as needed, and they will be added to your Device Tree automatically for you - this is the unique power of SUC/SIS.

   1. Next select 'Add node' from the 'Send to this device the command' drop-down menu and click send (there is no need to fill in any values in this screen).
   2. Now bring your Inclusion Controller close to your Core's/MD's ZWave USB interface and click once on its button or paddle (if a Wireless light switch) to include it into the ZWave Network.


Or do I follow the steps for Manual Setup using SIS Mode with the Tricklestar Remote, and download the configuration from the Tricklestar remote into the USB ZWave controller everytime I add lights.

I got the dongle added, and I see this is the log after a reset:

05      07/31/10 11:03:45.229           Got reply to ZW_MEMORY_GET_ID, Home id: 0x00d8b265, our node id: 1 <0xb71d8b90>

And after a reload, this:

I see this in the web:
                         ZWave
            ZWave Embedded Climate Interfa
            ZWave Embedded Security Interf
            ZWave Controller


The ZWave Controller is node 1.

How do I add the trickestar remote and start adding lights? Everything I try fails to work.

So after lots of reading and trial/error, I am at the point where the tricklestar dongle is added and works, and I added the tricklestar remote as node 2 (put Tricklestar remote in config mode - hold up, then 4 up, then send code to zwave device -> add node).

Here is the log after reload:

Now I can add lights using SIS and the tricklestar remote. I am going to update the wiki so this process is less confusing for others.

I am having the same problem, light on the tricklestar USB stick goes off as soon as it is initialized.
Can you give me a pointer to the wiki? Thanks.

The light was off for me too, that is normal I believe.
